Tattoo Relief that Lasts

Let’s be real, getting ink can hurt but there are a lot of other aches and pains we deal with on a daily basis, tattoo-related or not. That’s where Lidocaine comes in. It’s a local anesthetic that numbs the area it’s applied to help ease any current or anticipated pain/trauma.
Provides fast-acting pain relief
At 5%, the Lidocaine in our formula is going to dramatically decrease a lot of the pain associated with your new art.Long story short: it blocks the receptors in your skin responsible for sending signals to your brain that something hurts.
Minimizes visible redness associated with fresh tattoos
A combination of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory ingredients and lightweight hydrators support skin’s natural barrier to soothe irritability and promote optimal skin function: both surface and below.
Versatile formula, perfect for any pain-sensitive treatment
We highly recommend using our Numbing Cream for treatments beyond just tattoos: piercings, microblading, hair removal, permanent makeup, waxing, injections, etc. It can be used on the face, just don't get it in the eyes or mouth.

Tattoo Tip: To make the effects EXTRA concentrated, apply a thick layer to skin, wrap with plastic wrap for max absorption and let it sit 45 minutes to 1 hour before your session to help numb pain receptors before the artist starts.
01
Prepare by cleaning and shaving (if necessary) the area of your tattoo before applying.
02
Apply a thick layer to desired area and rub thoroughly in until fully absorbed.
03
Wrap the area with film (plastic wrap). The wrap activates the cream and stops it from drying out. For maximum numbing effect, leave cream and wrap on for 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to appointment.

FAQS

Can you use it before a tattoo session?
Of course, and we highly recommend it! At 5%, the Lidocaine in our formula is going to dramatically decrease a lot of the pain associated with your new art while naturally anti-inflammatory ingredients keep skin’s surface soothed and calm, so all you have to worry about is how great your new ink is going to look when you’re off the chair.
Can this be used on permanent makeup?
Yes! You can use it on your face, just do not put it in your eyes or ingest it.
Can I use this in other areas where I don't have tattoos?
Yes. For other pain-sensitive areas, you can use numbing cream because the main ingredient is Lidocaine - a common topical ingredient known for temporary pain relief.
Is this Vegan?
Yes, our Numbing Cream is vegan and fragrance-free.
How soon do I need to apply this product before getting a tattoo?
Apply to clean, dry skin 45-60 minutes before your session to help numb pain receptors before the artist starts! To make the effects EXTRA concentrated, apply to skin and instead of rubbing in, wrap area with plastic wrap for max absorption. For extra relief post tattoo session, partner with Mad Rabbit Soothing Gel and Tattoo Balm Stick.
Can I re-apply Numbing Cream during a session?
Once you are in session we recommend not reapplying on broken skin. You may reapply post tattoo session to help with the pain management if needed every 3-6 hours.
What else can I use Numbing Cream for?
Piercings, microblading, hair removal, permanent makeup, waxing, injections, etc. Any pain sensitive procedures!

Pretty good

I’ve been working on a fine line floral sleeve and it came time to do the outline of my elbow and inner bicep. I reapplied a few layers on and wrapped it per the instructions. I was pleased to find that in some spots it really helped, but in others it felt like I didn’t use anything. I only had the outline done so when I go back for shading I plan to layer up again.

Rib tattoo

Used this for a small, yet detailed, 3”x3” rib tattoo. Applied as directed 45-60 before and only felt vibration and a few sharp spots. Tattoo took 15 minutes. Much less painful than my foot tattoo, without numbing cream. I would use again.

This stuff is amazing!!

I used this before my tattoo the other day and I barely felt it! And, usually I’m a huge wimp! It also helped with the post-tattoo itching!

It works ok...

Went in to finish my large thigh piece. 90 mins before I rubbed some cream into my thigh, then put a good layer over it and covered it with saran wrap. For the first hour I was decently numb feeling pressure in some areas and sharpness in others (like the inner thigh which I sort of expected). After the first hour I could tell the numbing wore off. I felt it all and those tender spots got REALLY spicy. So for smaller tattoos, around an hour, yeah this should do good. For me it wore off way too quick. I have some smaller tats scheduled and will use it for that buy may need to go back to my other brand that lasted me a couple hours for my next large piece....

Glob it on, and LEAVE it on

I used this to get the Linework done on my giant sternum piece. At first, I was panicked coz I saw the directions say to do it one hour before the session, and we didn’t get started until it was on for close to two hours. BABY! GLOB IT ON AND LEAVE IT ON. For almost 3 hours all I felt was the vibration of the machine. About 3.5 hours in (the end of the Linework) I started to feel it again but that was seriously amazing. I would not have been able to sit this still for my artist if not for this cream. Literal life saver.
