How Does Tattoo Numbing Cream Work? Toochi Tattoo's In-Depth Exploration

Welcome back to Toochi Tattoo, where we unravel the mysteries of pain-free tattooing. Today, we embark on a journey into the depths of a common query: "How does tattoo numbing cream work?" Join us as we unveil the alchemy behind the numbing sensation that transforms your tattoo experience into a canvas of comfort.

So you want to know how tattoo numbing cream actually works? Well you've come to the right place.

The Magic Ingredients:

Tattoo numbing creams operate on a simple yet ingenious principle. The primary magic lies in the inclusion of local anesthetics, typically lidocaine, prilocaine, or tetracaine. These ingredients work by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the skin, creating a sensation of numbness.

Blocking Nerve Signals:

When applied to the skin, numbing creams penetrate the outer layers and reach the nerve endings it works by blocking the influx of sodium ions into the membrane surrounding nerves. This prevents the initiation and conduction of impulses along the nerve, which results in an anesthetic effect.

The active ingredients interfere with the transmission of pain signals from the nerves to the brain. As a result, the brain perceives a reduced sensation of pain or discomfort during the tattooing process.

Toochi Tattoo's Approach to Numbing:

  1. Precision Formulation: Toochi Tattoo's numbing creams are meticulously crafted, striking the perfect balance between potency and safety. Our formulations are designed to provide effective pain relief without compromising your well-being.

  2. Extended Comfort: Recognizing that tattoo sessions can vary in duration, our numbing creams are formulated to provide extended comfort. Whether you're in for a short session or a more extended artistic endeavor, Toochi Tattoo has you covered.

  3. Deep Penetration: Whether your tattoo session is long or short, a deep penetrating tattoo numbing cream is important. Areas such as hands and feet can be more difficult to numb due to the fact there is less muscle and fats beneath the surface of the skin where the numbing happens. In these situations, numbing the front and back of an area can be very helpful, depending on how much numbing you have. Say if you were getting a tattoo on your wrist, numbing the whole way around the wrist, this will give a far more effective numb than just numbing the one side, regardless of whether or not your are tattooing each side. 

Navigating the Application Process:

  1. Clean the Skin: Before applying numbing cream, ensure the tattoo area is cleaned, we recommend a greensoap like this one. This helps in the optimal absorption of the active ingredients (and stops any germs entering with the cream that should not)

  2. Apply Adequate Amount: Follow the recommended guidelines for application, ensuring that you use the right amount to cover the entire tattoo area. A 3 - 5 mm thickness is recommended for most creams - and be sure not to rub it in - simply apply and leave it sitting on the surface of the skin and wrap well with cling wrap.

  3. Wait for the Magic: We suggest waiting 90mins for the numbing cream to take effect before your tattoo session begins. The waiting period is a small investment for the comfort it brings, but does require some organization beforehand.

So, how does tattoo numbing cream work? It's a carefully orchestrated dance between specialized ingredients and your body's nervous system. At Toochi Tattoo, our commitment to precision and effectiveness ensures that the alchemy of numbing becomes a seamless part of your pain-free tattooing experience.
