You may have thought about buying numbing cream before, but stopped with the thought- If numbing cream is available now, why don’t tattoo artists use this product and advertise their expertise as ‘pain free’?
The answer isn’t always straight forward and in some cases it is subjective as people have had their own experiences with businesses who advertise their cream in a deceitful way, leaving customers unsatisfied with the product (not like us!).
The first numbing creams were developed in the early 1900’s and started out as a medical product which has slowly developed into a lotion that today is used by professionals all over the world, and now is available to the general public for different uses including: tattooing, laser hair removal, waxing, injections, blood tests, vaccinations, lip fillers and piercings. Our tattoo numbing cream works by blocking the pain signals in the nerves from that area from reaching the brain. Other creams can work slightly differently depending on the components.
You may be thinking, ‘this is all personal preference, surely tattoo artists should give the option to their customer’. This is right, and this is exactly why some tattoo artists do not supply it- essentially it’s not down to them, it is your responsibility as it is your personal preference.
Numbing cream can be beneficial for everyone included in this painful process, but both parties need to be open towards trying it out. It is best to take your pain threshold into consideration and understand that certain places of the body will hurt more than others, for example, if you are planning on getting a big tattoo on the ribs or elbows, we would advise gettingtattoo numbing cream.
