WHAT TYPES OF ANESTHESIA CAN BE USED WHEN GETTING A TATTOO?

When we talk about anesthesia for tattoos, there are three types that can be used thanks to current scientific advances: topical anesthesia, local anesthesia, and general anesthesia.

To discover them, keep reading:

TOPICAL ANESTHESIA

Have you heard of numbing cream for tattoos or numbing spray for tattoos?

Well, that's exactly it.

It's a product that is not invasive (meaning it won't hurt you) and is applied to the skin to be tattooed.

This type of anesthesia is perfect for small and medium tattoos and in areas of the body that are not very sensitive.

If you have doubts about this, always ask the tattoo artist who will work with you, they can advise you better on the area and its sensitivity!

LOCAL ANESTHESIA

Local anesthesia for tattoos is a bit more complex, but it's still very safe and also used when tattooing.

To use it, the anesthetics are injected directly into the tattoo area.

And why is it done like this? Because it's much more potent than the topical one. And it's used for tattoos in very sensitive areas or for longer sessions.

GENERAL ANESTHESIA

In general, the anesthesia used for tattoos is safe when administered correctly by trained professionals.

This anesthesia makes you sleep like a baby while a team of professionals like the one at Noble Art, ensures that, upon waking up, you have that great tattoo you always dreamed of.

And you'll only have blinked, for you it will be a snap of your fingers.

HOW DO THESE ANESTHESIAS WORK?

Topical Anesthesia

This anesthesia blocks the pain signals sent to the brain.

It is applied 30 minutes to an hour before starting the tattoo so that it takes effect and you can get tattooed calmly. And what are its pros? That it is easy to apply, has a lower risk of reactions, and is ideal for people who are terrified of needles. However, it also has some cons (like everything in life). And it may not be effective in all areas of the body or for all people, in the end, each person is unique. And also, that it may not be ideal for long sessions.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia allows you to block pain in a much more concentrated area because it is injected into the area your tattoo artist will work on. The good thing is that its effect is much stronger and longer-lasting, and it is perfect for tattoos of high sensitivity.

As for cons? That the application may be a bit more painful and that there are some possible side effects. That's why it's important, as we'll tell you later, to tell your tattoo artist about your health or if you suffer from any illness.

General Anesthesia

It is the best for large tattoos. Especially those that require more than one session. It is administered through a combination of intravenous anesthetic medications. During general anesthesia, you don't feel pain and you're not aware of what's happening around you. The duration of the state of unconsciousness is carefully controlled and monitored by the anesthesiologist throughout the procedure.

WHAT CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD I TAKE INTO ACCOUNT TO GET TATTOOED WITH ANESTHESIA?

To make this process a pleasant experience, you should consider a few things:

INITIAL MEDICAL EVALUATION

The safety of our clients is our top priority. Therefore, we start with a detailed medical evaluation that includes a complete medical history. This process is carried out remotely with a specialist.

CONSENT

In the days leading up to it, we send you the informed consent, the questionnaire, and pre-anesthetic instructions. Then you have to return them signed and delivered on paper on the day of the tattoo.

FASTING

On the day of the tattoo, you have to fast for 6 hours. Don't worry about eating, after the tattoo, you can feast.

FINAL CARE

After the tattoo, it's important to rest while we observe you for an hour. We always advise you to be accompanied when you leave, as we don't recommend driving during the hours following recovery. Additionally, we will provide you with a guide on how to care for the tattoo for the next 10 days.

LARGE TATTOOS WITH ANESTHESIA

How many times have you dreamed of a tattoo that extends all over your back? Or a complete arm or leg?

When it comes to tattoos with anesthesia, the truth is that we often only think about numbing cream for tattoos and not much else. Sometimes, we even want to find this anesthesia for tattoos at the pharmacy...

But this type of topical anesthesia is not effective when it comes to large tattoos.

That's why, at Noble Art, we help you create your tattoo with general anesthesia in the safest and most professional way possible.

If you want a large tattoo, we have the best anesthesia for tattoos for you thanks to the project led by Matias Noble, a tattoo artist with over 11 years of experience

What areas of the body can I tattoo with anesthesia?

Now that you know it's possible, surely your next question is: where can I get tattooed with general anesthesia?

The areas we recommend are the chest, back, arms, and legs. Here's why.

CHEST TATTOOS WITH ANESTHESIA

The chest is an area that can vary greatly in sensitivity, especially near the sternum and ribs. Depending on your pain threshold, it can be more or less uncomfortable for you. That's why using anesthesia for chest tattoos allows you to go through the experience without the pain that accompanies this sensitive area.

BACK TATTOOS WITH ANESTHESIA

Dreaming of having your back covered in ink? Being in such a sensitive area as the spine, the back is the perfect place to tattoo with anesthesia. This way, you'll avoid the discomfort of the lower back, where the skin is quite sensitive to pain. Additionally, back tattoos tend to be more extensive, so the time for completion is higher.

FULL ARM TATTOOS WITH ANESTHESIA

Full arm tattoos (or sleeves) are favorites of many ink lovers. Their designs are versatile, unique, and also long and painful.

Using anesthesia allows you to have the tattoo of your dreams without long and uncomfortable sessions, with relaxed muscles and better recoveries.

FULL LEG TATTOOS WITH ANESTHESIA

The same goes for legs as with arms, making them a perfect area for tattooing with general anesthesia.

In conclusion, general anesthesia allows you to get tattoos that are authentic works of art thanks to its many benefits and a qualified team of professionals, both artists and healthcare staff, who will be with you at all times.

At Noble Art, we specialize in painless tattooing thanks to general anesthesia, so if you're considering taking the plunge, schedule a consultation call with us, and we'll be happy to assist you in your specific case.
