What numbing product works best for tattoos?

I'm getting a cover-up done on my ankle. All I could handle was the outline. I started going into shock from the pain. I'm getting the coloring done in a week. What numbing product works best so I don't have to go thru this again? Also I have had other tattoos done before. I have one on my arm... show more I'm getting a cover-up done on my ankle.

Also I have had other tattoos done before. I have one on my arm that's been touched up and one around my belly button that has also been touched up. I don't know y I have this much pain with this tattoo. My other 2 I didn't even feel. This one also bled quite a bit where my other ones didn't bleed and the one around my belly button is even scarred cause he went too deep
