New Sponsor: Face & Body Professionals
Needles and Sins has a new supporter, Face & Body Professionals, and we're excited about all they have to offer the tattoo, piercing and permanent make-up communities. Face & Body is not some newcomer to these industries. They have been developing products for permanent cosmetics and tattooing professionals since 1995 and offer pigments, topical anesthetics and studio supplies.
There's been some debate over the use of numbing creams and gels, and it seems that more and more artists are using them for larger works. Even the esteemed Horiyoshi III has said, "Sure, it's better if it doesn't hurt" when guest blogger John Mack asked about anesthetics for his body suit. And Robert Atkinson told us that he numbed up for his last sitting with Filip Leu, adding, "At the end of the day, no one is giving out trophies for being tough."
Those looking into topical anesthetics should check the pre-procedure numbing cream Super Trio and the during-procedure numbing gel Sustaine Blue Gel. Face & Body also carries After Inked and H2Ocean aftercare products that help keep tattoos looking new.
