Painless tattoo NUMBING


We have Painless Tattoo Numbing Cream available for purchase before your appointment. 1 tube is generally enough for 1/4 an arm. If you would like numbing cream, please notify your artist prior to your appointment.

1 - Apply a thick amount of numbing cream (2mm thick) to the area and rub in thoroughly.

2 - Cover with cling film. The heat under the plastic wrap helps activate the cream and keeps the cream from drying out.

3 - Leave cream and wrap in place for 45 minutes before procedure.

4 - After 45 minutes, remove the cling film, wipe the cream away with paper towel and wash thoroughly once more with antibacterial soap. Pat dry and ensure treated area is completely dry. You’re now ready for your pain free tattoo!


We have Painless Tattoo Numbing Spray to be used during your tattoo available at the shop. It can be in addition to numbing cream or by itself. It can only be used after your line work is complete as the skin has been "broken". Let your artist know if you would like numbing spray during your appointment!
