In order to ensure maximum numbing, please DON’T DRINK ANY FORM OF ALCOHOL within 24 hours of Tattooing, or the numbing may not be as effective or long lasting.


Please spot test the day prior to use on a small area that’ll be tattooed the next day, especially if you have sensitive skin to ensure that your skin doesn’t become inflamed. Some minor localized redness is normal.

Steps For Use:

1 - Wash and exfoliate the area to be tattooed, lasered or pierced quite thoroughly with soap, water and exfoliator to remove dirt and dead skin this will help the cream penetrate. Dry area completely.

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

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

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

5 - 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!

For long procedures lasting hours over large areas; it is recommended to split the tattoo into 3 hour sessions and apply and remove the cream to each section prior to starting. IE; a 9 hour day split into 3 x 3 hour sessions and 3 tubes of cream.


Skin typically remains numb for 3-4 hours once cream is removed depending on your skin type and location on the body.

We caution against re-application to broken skin. We encourage sectioning out the session as outlined above for best healed results. If used on broken skin, only leave on broken skin for 15-20 minutes at a time.

Follow standard tattoo sanitation practices when applying.


The expiration date is indicated at the bottom of the tube, which is usually 3 years after the manufacturing date. 

Store Painless Tattoo Cream in a cool area away from heat and moisture. Painless Tattoo can be re-used so long as the opened tube has been tightly closed. We recommend use within 5-10 days of opening. Discard if the cream is discolored.
