    I decided to order this tube for a rib tattoo I was getting. I read some good reviews and some bad reviews so I was worried if it would work for me . Let me just tell you that I put this on at 9:30 in the morning . My tattoo was started at 11::15. I was numb and didn’t feel much. About the last 30 minutes of getting my tattoo was when it started wearing off so about 3:00. This stuff is amazing and will use it when I go back in two weeks to finish this one . Amazing product

    Best stuff ever!

    Posted by Unknown on 2018 Jun 25th

    I purchased this product prior to getting a tattoo on my hip/side. I have several other tattoos but this location was honestly unbearable. My artist suggested Dr. Numb and I was truly amazed. I didn’t feel ANYTHING. The only reason I knew when my artist started was due to the vibration of the tattoo needle. Worth every penny.

    Works well

    Posted by Ron on 2018 May 29th

    Works great but you need to apply it liberally. Leave it on till right before the procedure and hope it doesn’t go more than 3 hours. Doesn’t last longer and tends to end quite abruptly. Takes the edge off but not completely pain free.

    Nipple piercing adventure

    Posted by Jen on 2018 Apr 19th

    I recently purchased after reading a TON of reviews. I used for a nipple piercing and although I did still feel a slight pinch this cream definitely helped take the edge! My husband will be using on a tattoo this weekend so we hope it numbs him completely. Will update review if possible

    Made tattoo bareable

    Posted by Trish Engle on 2018 Apr 10th

    First time I used the cream was for a tattoo on my sternum. Some areas were fully numb while other areas were not. After 2 hours it had all worn off so I would advise to reapply.
