How to Take Care of Your Tattoo Cream

When used properly, tattoo creams can reduce the pain associated with getting a tattoo. These products can also moisturise your skin and reduce inflammation and redness.

The ingredients, including nerve-deadeners lidocaine and prilocaine and pain-single blockers like tetracaine, require careful application to work correctly. You also need to properly care for the cream so that it remains fully effective for its entire shelf life.

If you invested in the best tattoo cream, you need to follow the following tips to ensure you get the expected pain-blocking benefits.

These tips are useful to keep the cream as fresh as possible and for those who want to enjoy the numbing effects over multiple sessions at your favourite studio.

Get the Most Out of Your Tattoo Numbing Cream

The first (and perhaps most obvious) step is to ensure that the top is tightly closed after each use. Prolonged exposure to air can dry out the cream, making it ineffective.

If you live in a hot climate, you might consider storing the container in a refrigerator. Otherwise, a cool, dark place without direct sun exposure is sufficient to ensure the cream remains potent.

Because of the numbing qualities, you must use a glove when applying the cream by hand. Covering the applied area with plastic wrap for 30 to 60 minutes gives the numbing agents time to be absorbed into the skin and provide a lasting numbing effect.

You should also consider safety when using and storing your numbing product. The container should be stored in a place that isn't accessible to children or pets who could become sick or injured if they ingest the cream or put it on their skin or in their eyes.

With the proper storage and application, it can provide a pain-free tattoo experience, even for longer sessions. Some users claim the effects last for eight to 10 hours.
