Should I Use Tattoo Numbing Cream?

Have you thought about using tattoo numbing cream for your next tattoo?

You have probably heard many different things about it. Some people think that numbing agents negatively affect the ink. Some people believe they don't need numbing. And many have experiences with products that don't work.

In this blog post, we'll discuss the different concerns and help you figure out if you should use tattoo numbing products.

Do Tattoo Numbing Products Affect Ink?

Short answer is our products don't ruin ink. We use our Tattoo Candy Cream and Tattoo Candy Gel on Permanent Makeup clients. As PMU Artists, we work on brows, eyeliner, and lips and always achieve wonderful results.

Check out our Pigment Results Gallery to see how hundreds of other artists use our numbing products and inks together to create beautiful cosmetic tattoos.

Now body tattoo ink is different from Permanent Makeup pigments in some ways. However, we have traditional tattoo artists who use our numbing products to amazing effect.

There is nothing in our numbing agents that would affect the enduring qualities of body ink. So ultimately, our products will not reduce the quality or lifespan of your tattoo.

Do I Really Need Numbing?

Would you get surgery done without numbing? Would you have a dental root canal without numbing? We live in the 21st century and have benefitted from scientific advancements where you no longer need to feel pain during otherwise painful procedures.

We always use numbing agents in Permanent Makeup. Imagine getting Microbladed Eyebrows and feeling every stroke of the needles drag across your skin. Not only would that pain be unbearable, but it would make it difficult for the artist to do a good job.

We understand that enduring pain is part of the body tattoo culture for many people. But did you take a moment to think about your tattoo artist? Put yourself in his or her shoes and think of their part in the process.

It is not easy to tattoo beautiful art on a person who is squirming around in pain. The process takes much longer because they need to wait to work on a still surface.

If you use numbing agents for your tattoo procedure, you won't feel pain, and you also won't move about. Your artist will have a much easier time making all the fine lines and details on your skin since your body will be so calm.

You don't have to prove your pain tolerance to anyone. Ensure your tattoo is as perfect as can be by using numbing topicals that will keep you calm and pain-free.

Do Tattoo Numbing Products Work?

Our line of numbing agents absolutely work! If they didn't, we wouldn't have such a large following of dedicated artists who buy our numbing creams and numbing gels every month.

The best part is that our products were formulated with Permanent Makeup in mind which means working specifically on the most sensitive parts of the face. If our products work on the eyebrows, eyelids, and lips, you better believe they will work anywhere else on your body.

We have a fantastic, easy to read resource page with instructional videos to show you how to use the products. They are super easy to use. Visit our page How To Use Tattoo Candy to learn more.

Our products work very well and very fast. No need to occlude cream for an hour before treatment like other products advertise. Our cream works in 15 minutes and the gel works almost immediately.
