actually i would not recommend to using a topical anesthetic, I went to a very good tattoo shop and they do not recommend using and numbing cream because it swells the skins so after you get your tattoo or skin goes back to normal and can leave lines untrue. another thing is ppl can go into shock after the cream wears off from the sudden pain

Dexter Kirby says:

where have you got your tattoos on your body, just wondering? Like I have a pretty high pain tolerance and have had some major injuries and just recently got a tattoo on the whole inside of my bicep, definitely was not enjoyable by any means, especially by the elbow and armpit

I’m 22 and I’m planning to my get my third tattoo but I have a VERY low pain tolerance. I got my first one done when I was 19 and I was screaming and crying at the same time due to my sensitive skin.

Ibuprofen can thin your blood. I learned that from an actual tattoo artist.

Savannah Carden says:

Thats why they said “non-aspirin”. Non-aspirin pain relievers dont thin your blood.

RylieJaye397 says:

Actually, you aren’t supposed to have any kind of pain reliever within 24 hours of a tattoo appointment. It thins your blood. Ibuprofen, aspirin, or whatever you use will thin the blood and make you more likely to bleed.

HoennMaster says:

Well of course Democrats are more likely to have them…we aren’t as uptight. 🙂 😛
