Numbing Creams

I am curious about numbing creams. I have heard good and bad comments about them. As a tattoo artist is this something that works? Have you tried this? If it works that is a lot more clients I could have that just don't get them due to their pain meter! Thank you!

RE:Numbing Creams

I tried it one time myself. I don't even remember the name of the stuff but it destroyed my tattoo. That's really all
i have to say about my experience with numbing creams other than the fact that it was a waste of money. There is probably some good stuff out there, I just suggest doing your research on it first. My tattoo was nice but about half way through it it began to rip up the skin and just completely destroyed the tattoo. I know it was the cream because I have never seen anything like ithat before. Be careful please. Hope to have helped.

RE:Numbing Creams

Thank you for the advice. I've heard depending on the greaseyness (if that can word) it can demage the tattoo. I guess I'll keep diggin' on the topic. Sorry about your experience...hope you were able to fix it! Thanks again!

I would stay Away form numbing creams, I have never seen a good case come out of it. I have also used it on myself and it actually made the situation hurt more once the numbing wore off... If your client is struggling I have found the best solution is a small amount of bactine rubbed on the area, during the tattoo process.

RE:Numbing Creams

check this out, I am a tattoo arist. and i get tattooed all the time. i use numbing cream every single time. I stick with one company "Dr. Numb". Ive tried many and this one was the only one that worked. not only was it the only one that worked for the pain, but it was the only one that didnt fade, or infect the tattoo. I have been using it religiously for about threee years, on my self and clients at my shop, and i owuld recomend it to anyone. You have to use it correctly inorder for it to work though. i think theres still videos on the website of people using it. the stuff was a life saver for me. try it out. its cheaper if you order it in bulk and belive me youll want it in bulk once you use it.

You sound like an advertisement...like on other blogs and forums I've read. I think I'll stick with straight up skin. Tattoos are just not meant for everyone.

RE:Numbing Creams

I've also tried tons of different numbing agents through the fee years into my tattooing career, and like most say it definitely affects the skin and tattoo integrity, until recently I've stuck with the spillable bactine " to avoid crosscontamination" and its helped. Recently at the el paso tx convention I met mike of inkeeze lifestyle products and tried their stuff out on my sisters rib piece, it lasted about two n a half hours then I used bactine once more for highlights n whatnot n no problems or post burning like the dr numb n vasocaine etc. I've bought it since and good outcomes. I try not to use it unless it's an awful spot or if it's my girl or something and still seldomely. Tattoos hurt ppl should expect that much walking into it. But yea ink eeze was my best experience. Didnt give the skin that Fatlip like texture. Hope this helps. Thanks

RE:Numbing Creams

the blue bottle of the numbing spray from cam works fine. i think its vasocaine, that sounds right. too lazy to get up n look. skin seems to tighten up a little bit, but nothing too crazy. makes it easier to tattoo whiners. $50 extra per tattoo

RE:Numbing Creams

Inkeeze is great stuff...use it after the skin is broken let it sit a few minutes and its great....they have alot of good products.

RE:Numbing Creams

you know what? I have a bunch of tattoos, some of which I have fallen asleep during. But the tops of my feet... FUCK ME. I have not numbed them yet, and have gone through 4 hours altogether. I need another 3 hours before they are done, but I don't think I can do it without help. Or else I might punch my boyfriend right in his tattooing face. It actually makes me feel a bit wussy, but enough is enough. I'm gonna try Xylocaine spray, and will let you know how I get on....

RE:Numbing Creams

I have about 100 hours on me, not once did I use numbing cream, or any type of pain killer, or alcohol.

Most of my tattoos hurt like shit, but that's part of the pride of wearing them... that I earned it. It's a rite of passage.

Why don't we just put people under during the tattoo while we're at it? Haha...

But whatever makes folks happy, I'm not knocking anyone's choices, but I do have to say this: you didn't REALLY get tattooed unless it hurt ;)

RE:Numbing Creams

I strongly recommend HUSH. It's a Great product. U put it on an hour prior to the tattoo and it numbs for about an hour tand a half o 2 hours. I wouldn't suggest it for anything that will pass that time frame. It's a really good product that works

RE:Numbing Creams

I use prescription I get from my doctor. Benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine 15%\ 5%\ 5% and I charge handsomely for the use of it, as it is very expensive. It is the absolute SHIT!! I let it soak for about 30 minutes and it doesn't wear off.... Ever! Actually it seems to last about 3-4 hours. Like I said its expensive, like $60 per ounce but I use it as an up-sell to my clients. Those who want it spend the money for it. Those who don't, didn't need it to begin with.

RE:Numbing Creams

You posted a numbing agent that would help ease the pain
a Dr.prescription mixer from experience does that really work, I'm having a piece that will take 3hrs and would like to have finished that really wouldn't like to have to come back and travel 3hrs to finish the art work,

RE:Numbing Creams

Hush just released a new formula that numbs the skin after the skin has been broken. Working like a strong bactine it, let it sit for about 15 mins n it will numb for a bit.
