Most Tattoo Shops Use Dr. Numb for Painless Tattoo Experience
What is Dr. Numb - Topical Numbing Cream?
Dr. Numb Cream is a topical anesthesia consisting of 5% lidocaine (the highest amount allowable). It is made with pure lidocaine. Dr. Numb uses water-based solutions. Therefore Dr. Numb cream doesn't interfere with the ink or the skins elasticity, making it safe to use for a painless tattoo process.
Because Dr. Numb is pure lidocaine at its highest concentration and water based, it will completely numb the skin right away for a painless tattoo. It works great for relieving the pain associated with the tattooing process and numbing the pain of piercings.
How It Works
Dr. Numb Cream - topical numbing cream works by blocking nerves from transmitting painful impulses to the brain. After applying a thick (quarter inch) layer of the cream to the area to be tattooed, cover the cream with saran wrap for at least 30 minutes to give enough time to ensure a painless steel tattoo. Once the air tight bandage has been removed, the skin will remain completely numb for at least two hours.
