I'd agree with it being the numbing cream. I had a client use Hush numbing cream for a rib piece. The directions said to lather this stuff on and wrap with plastic wrap about an hour before the tattoo. Now he said it worked great, however for me it was a nightmare. What i've have found and noticed is that numbing creams/sprays have a tendency to contract the skin or tighten it up and makes it very difficult to get proper penetration....Now when the guy came back for the second sitting I advised him to not use anything, and it was night and day for getting the ink in there. If anything I'd say vasocane or bactine but like TexasPT said it's really only somewhat affective after the skin has been broken, and I would recommend only using it if absolutely needed to get that last 30 mins to hour done. With bactine I've found that pretty much any more then 2 applications and the skin starts to tighten up and fights you.....I did the same tattoo on a mother and her daughter, the daughter used numbing cream, the ink took longer to pack into the daughters skin and after healing the daughters tattoo wasn't as bright, could've been down to skin type or it could've been down to the numbing cream.
