Tattoo Lover Gift Ideas

This is such a fun gift idea for the tattoo lover. I love the idea of filling the jar with a couple of products or get them started with a little cash for their fund!

What a fun gift for someone who is a tattoo artist in your life. This fun shirt is the perfect stocking stuffer for the artist!

3. Temporary Tattoo Collection

Do you know someone who is trying to decide if they want new ink or not? This temporary tattoo collection is perfect for them. A new tattoo technology. Ink sinks into the top layer of your skin (called the epidermis, if you wanna get technical) and develops into a dark blue or black color. It lasts 1-2 weeks and fades as your skin naturally regenerates.

4. Tattoo Machine Keychain

Another perfect gift for the tattoo artist in your life. This fun keychain perfectly replicates the tattoo machine they use to create fun and unique pieces of art everyday.

5. HUSH Anesthetic 

The HUSH numbing gel is a popular choice among tattoo artists worldwide. They recommend applying a thick layer an hour before the skin is broken. Then wrap the spot in plastic wrap to let it absorb. It is known to be one of the best and strongest tattoo numbing creams on the market.

The gel is based on 4% lidocaine with other ingredients like aloe, propylene glycol, and glycerin to help it penetrate the skin. It also has soothing plant extracts like comfrey, chamomile, and menthol. The effects last up to two hours and they won’t interfere with the ink or your blood circulation. Also important, this product is FDA-compliant for tattooing, piercing, laser hair removal, and other procedures. It’s not oily and it’s free of parabens.

6. Ebanel 5% Lidocaine Numbing Cream 

Ebanel’s NUMB 520 has a slightly higher concentration of lidocaine than the HUSH gel above, but that doesn’t mean that it’s more powerful. Part of what makes a tattoo cream effective is more than the anesthetic ingredient. It’s also necessary to have good absorption and the ability to keep numbing as long as possible.

This water-based tattoo cream gets to work fast in as little as 20 minutes. Then the effects last between one to two hours. Plus, this product has a technology called Liposomal to help it penetrate the skin.

7. Clinical Resolution Numb Master Topical Anesthetic Cream

The Numb Master cream contains 5% lidocaine. It reaches maximum power in 20 to 25 minutes and continues to work for about one hour afterward. As the product absorbs into your skin, it won’t leave a greasy or sticky residue.
