Posted on September 04 2018
Tattooing is in the trend since ages and it will stay here for long period of time. A tattoo expresses your persona and makes you look fabulous.
But what is the first thing that comes into your mind when it comes to tattoo? The pain incurred during the entire tattooing process is a big concern and no doubt, the process of getting a tattoo is painful. However, it does not mean you have to bear the pain always to get inked with a dream tattoo.
Solution to pain
NumbSkin is a topical anesthetic numbing cream and is known to be strongest and safest numbing solution available. It has been into usage by tattoo artists from many years because it is a perfect remedy to make the entire tattooing process painless. However, NumbSkin is now available to the non-professionals too. It is a topical anesthetic used to apply on the affected area to reduce the pain and produce numbness instantly.
FDA has marked a specific limit of using this local anesthetic and class-1b antiarrhythmic drug. The purest form of lidocaine resides in NumbSkin that is FDA approved. Forming water based solution, NumbSkin make sure to use this drug in appropriate amount.
What Lidocaine does?
Lidocaine works directly on the nerves and temporarily blocks the way of pain signals along the nerves by preventing the sodium to enter the nerve ending at the site of the pain. Hence, any electrical signal is prevented to grow and pass along the nerve fibres to the brain with use of lidocaine. And when the brain does not receive any signals, you don’t feel any pain.
Some other useful tips to get a healthy tattoo
• Tip 1: Keep distance from alcohol
If you really want to keep pain away on your tattoo day, keep liquor away. The reason being is that alcohol thins the blood and elongates the healing time. Moreover, it will make things difficult for the tattoo artist. Always remember, a tattoo that bleeds a lot takes longer time to heal.
• Tip 2: Make it clean
Before you go for tattoo sitting make sure that you get the surface cleaned properly. Whether you are going for a back tattoo or on your arm, it is better to get it clean two to three days before. Waxing or any other methods is completely your choice. On the appointment day, just take your daily shower and get it done.
• Tip 3: A deep sleep
This may sound to be little silly, but it is really useful. Make sure to take a good sleep before getting your new tattoo. The reason being if your body is tried and fatigued, this could affect the immune system and cause greater pain while getting the new tattoo.
• Tip 4: Vitamin C
Do you know that Vitamin C helps your body with the healing process? Yes, it is an active agent that boosts the healing agents and relieves you significantly. Hence, you need to consume foods rich in Vitamin C.
• Tip 5: Avoid Direct Sunlight
Avoid exposing your tattoo to direct sunlight unless it is very necessary. Healed tattoos, especially colored ones, can fade in the sun – so when it's completely healed, make sure it's covered in a high SPF if you're going to be catching some rays.
Tattoo is a perfect source of self expression and it reflects your personality very well. So, it is always advised to choose a tattoo design after thorough research because tattoo will stay with you for entire lifetime. Choose the one that you will never regret.
