WHITE OAK TATTO CO. FAQ
Please read carefully before emailing us as most general questions are answered below!
DOES WHITE OAK OFFER BODY PIERCING?
Unfortunately, we do not offer piercings at this time.
DO I NEED A VALID ID TO GET TATTOOED?
YES. Valid government issued photo identification is needed FOR ALL TATTOOS. We unfortunately cannot accept copies or NON-Photo IDs.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO RECEIVE A TATTOO?
In the state of Pennsylvania you must be at least 18 years old with an original and valid state or federally issued ID such as a driver's license, passport, or military ID. We do not accept school ID's of any kind. We also WILL NOT Tattoo ANYONE under the age of 18 even with Parental Consent.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO GET TATTOOED?
As stated above, a valid state or federally issued ID, any reference or images you have for your Artist to use. All Walk-in service is dependent on artists' availability, so please call ahead of time if you have a concern about getting in on the same day.
WHAT SHOULD I LEAVE AT HOME?
Children, Pets, Friends. Under NO circumstances should children be brought into the studio. Any minors brought to White Oak will be promptly asked to leave. White Oak also does not allow pets in the studio except by the ADA demands regarding service animals. Please keep in mind that "emotional support animals" are not protected by the ADA and will not be allowed in the studio due to sanitary concerns.
WHAT ARE THE ARTISTS' SCHEDULES AND HOURLY RATES?
Our shop minimum is 200$. Rates differ depending on the artist, but most of our work is done at flat rates instead of hourly, to ensure the best tattoo possible without the added pressure of time constraints.

DO I NEED TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL AN APPOINTMENT?
We understand that emergencies and last-minute changes can occur, and we try to accommodate such rarities. Otherwise, rescheduling an appointment must be done with at least 48 hour’s notice to reserve your deposit. In the event of a cancelled appointment, all deposits are NON REFUNDABLE. Deposits will be honored up to two reschedules.
DO TATTOOS HURT?
Everyone has their threshold when it comes to pain, but a manageable amount of pain is to be expected. Of course, placement and length of procedure time can affect the level of pain or discomfort experienced.
CAN I GET TATTOOED IF I AM SICK?
No. Getting tattooed while you are sick is not a good idea as your body's immune system will already be under stress with any illness, and then further stressed being forced to heal a tattoo. If you do become ill before an appointment, please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule.
DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?
Yes, White Oak Tattoo accepts all major Credit Cards and Cash. Please keep in mind that White Oak Tattoo does not accept payment by bank transfer or online services such as PayPal or Venmo. Please also keep in mind if you would like to tip your Tattoo Artists, Cash is best!

We reserve the right to refuse service to any client that we suspect is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
