Tattoos By CamelTattoo Care


The life of your tattoo is dependent upon the care it receives within the first few days... 
it takes about two weeks to heal, and two more weeks to settle in.

Keep your tattoo bandaged from 2 to 10 hours (or however long I tell you to leave it on!). Remove gauze and wash tattoo gently with cool, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly, lightly pat dry with a clean towel. 

Do not SCRUB your tattoo!
DO NOT re-bandage your tattoo

DO NOT use Vaseline or petroleum jelly
DO NOT use alcohol or peroxide
DO NOT pick or scratch tattoo
DO NOT soak tattoo in tub or shower- get in, get clean, get out!
Stay out of swimming pools, hot tubs, oceans, etc. for two weeks
Keep tattoo out of direct sunlight and/or tanning beds

                         With clean hands, apply a THIN layer of antibiotic ointment such as A & D Ointment or Bacitracin 2 to 3 times a day for 4 or 5 days;
after that, switch to lotion.

You may use a good fragrance free lotion such as Lubriderm, Jergens or Eucerin. Apply a THIN layer and work in well 5 to 6 times a day for the entire healing process. DO NOT over lubricate your tattoo; however, don't let it dry out, either. Should any seepage occur, gently dab off excess with a clean paper towel.

                 If a rash occurs (bumps on or around the tattoo as with an allergic reaction) or redness persists, discontinue use and call us for suggestions or product alternatives.
