Default Miami ink-L.A ink & numb creams

still on the subject of numbing creams i'm a avid viewer of miami ink & l.a ink & before i got my 1st tattoo yesterday it didn't occur to me that none of the people getting tattoos don't even flinch when getting a piece done & i refuse believe the americans are better at taking pain than us brits lol...surely they have to use numbing creams...right? because i know 1 thing i couldn't hold a conversation with my tattoo artist maybe it was because my tattoo was on my spine i dunno....what you think?

They only show small sections of the tattoo being done on those shows and it always depends where you are getting work done. I was able to chat to my artist during the entire process of getting a sleeve with the exception of the elbow.

Flyboy- maybe you have a low pain tolerence. I have never been offerred numbing cream and have been tattooed by the American Richard Stell who is very heavy handed for hrs at a time. I could hold conversations but at the end It was not fun

No doubt it hurts but that's all part if the journey isn't it?!

I'm not entirely sure what you're asking?

Most artists use rubbing alcohol as standard, if you don't want it just say you don't want it.

Never had any sort of numbing cream and always have been able to have a conversation with tattooist.
