Numbing Cream Application
Wash the area receiving tattoo with soap and water.
Cover the area with a with a hot towel for 5 minutes, then dry the area completely.
Apply a thick amount of numbing cream to the area and rub in thoroughly.
After rubbing into the skin, apply a second heavy layer of numbing cream (about 1/8 of an inch thick) over the area.
Cover the numbing cream with plastic wrap (Saran wrap) and keep warm. The heat under the plastic wrap helps activate the cream and keeps the cream from drying out.
Leave the numbing cream and wrap in place for one hour before tattoo. For long procedures lasting hours over large areas; apply numbing cream over the entire work area, then remove in sections as procedure progresses.
Skin typically remains numb for three to five hours once numbing cream is removed from skin, depending on skin type and location on body.
Please note: Numbing time depend on the thickness and sealing time.
