What is Tattoo Numbing Cream?
Tattoo Numbing Cream, over the counter, is a topical anesthetic used for many common tattoo procedures such as: body tattoos and laser tattoo removals. The cream itself is water-based, anti-inflammatory, and combined with numbing agents such as high strength lidocaine (the main active ingredient). The formulation of the product allows for deep penetration into the skin (dermis layer) allowing it to target and reach the pain sensory fibers. In short, the main goal of numbing cream is to block the pain receptors to allow a pain-free tattoo experience.
How does it help with tattoo pain?
Once you apply a numbing cream for tattoos, it begins quickly absorbing into the multiple layers of skin such as the epidermis and the dermis. Consuming these areas are the sensing organs for heat, cold, touch, pressure, and pain. The primary organ we are focused on numbing is the sensing of the free nerve endings for pain such as when a tattoo gun pierces through the flesh and injecting tattoo ink deep into the dermis causing a great deal of pain and uncomfort. This product will temporarily block pain signals from being sent along the nerves and then to the brain.
How-To Apply Numbing Cream:
- Wash the skin area with soap and water then pat dry
- Apply thick layer of cream and rub it in for at least 30 seconds!
- (optional – for added strength) After 20 minutes, apply a 2nd thin layer over same area
- Cover the area with plastic or saran wrap to prevent mess onto clothing
- Leave on for 1 to 2 hours right before your tattoo or tattoo removal
- Wipe off with dry rag moments before procedure begins (do not use soap)
The area getting the tattoo should be numbed now for 1-4 hours. Results vary for each individual since all our bodies react a bit differently. Don’t forget to read all tips &
