DON’T DRINK ANY FORM OF ALCOHOL within 24 hours of Tattooing, or the numbing may not be as effective or long lasting. Spot test the cream on a small area that’ll be tattooed in advance, especially if you have sensitive skin. Apply a small amount to ensure that your skin doesn’t become inflamed. Some minor localized redness is normal.
-- Wash and exfoliate the area to be tattooed, lasered or pierced thoroughly with soap, water and exfoliator to remove dirt and dead skin this will help the cream penetrate. Dry area completely.
-- Apply a thick amount of numbing cream (2mm thick) to the area and rub in thoroughly.
-- Cover with plastic wrap. The heat under the plastic wrap helps activate the cream and keeps the cream from drying out.
-- Leave cream and wrap in place for a minimum of 30-45 minutes before procedure. Anymore than 60 minutes shortens the time in which it is affective.
-- After 45 minutes, remove the cling film, wipe the cream away with paper towel and clean the area thoroughly once more. You’re ready for your pain free tattoo!
