FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR STERILIZATION STANDARDS?
Tulsa Tattoo Co meets and exceeds all Oklahoma Health Board standards: All of our staff is knowledgeable in sterilization and cross contamination prevention, and takes great care to adhere to the required practices. Brand new pre-sterilized needles are used for each tattoo and piercing application, and both needles and needle bar are disposed of thereafter in sharps containers. All sharps are picked up regularly and incinerated by a professional medical waste disposal company. Tattoo tubes and non-disposable equipment are logged and processed through a steam autoclave that is spore tested each cycle and monthly with Mesalabs sterilizer monitoring program, these results are available to the client upon request. Barriers and hospital grade cleansers are used on all applicable surfaces and equipment to prevent any cross contamination.
HOW MUCH DOES A TATTOO COST?
A simple question with a not so simple answer... Asking “How much does a tattoo cost?” is similar to asking “How much does a bag of groceries cost?”… it varies hugely based on what’s in it, how big the bag is, and whom you’re buying it from. There are as many factors in pricing tattoo as there are factors in designing tattoos, so we cannot give you a price until the tattoo is designed and sized with you in person. Your idea of “small” or “simple” may not be the same as our idea, so we do not want to give anyone inaccurate information. After talking with your artist at a consultation, they can give you a ballpark range for a single-session tattoo, or a rate for a larger, multi-session tattoo.
Our minimum price to set up for ANY tattoo (even smaller than a quarter with no color) is $50 and they go up from there. We cannot give you a price range for a tattoo over phone or email.
Q: WHAT IS A TATTOO CONSULTATION?
A consultation is an appointment booked with a tattoo artist, generally for larger and more complex custom work. It is requested that you bring a hard copy of any reference materials that you’d like your tattoo artist to use as a source for your tattoo, so that he or she might have a clear understanding of the direction you’d like to take your idea. Please feel free to ask the tattoo artist for any advice on your design, remember, they are professionals and can offer a specialized opinion and suggestions of what will work, and what might not be tattoo-able!
WHAT IS YOUR APPOINTMENT POLICY?
All appointments are made in person. All deposits are non refundable and count toward your tattoo with your artist upon completion of the piece. Please do not be late for your appointment, as you maybe asked to reschedule and risk forfeit of your deposit.
CAN I BOOK APPOINTMENTS OVER THE PHONE, EMAIL, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, OR TWITTER?
The short answer is no, and this is why: consultations and bookings can only be completed in person due to the nature of creating your personal piece. Phone booking exceptions made only if you have a standing deposit and artwork with Tulsa Tattoo Co.
Deposits are a minimum of $50 dollars cash and are taken at the end of a consultation appointment and applied to the final sitting of your tattoo.
We do not accept credit card or electronic transfers as a method of payment. Requested deposit amounts may increase with larger work or with our guest artists.
Q: HOW MUCH IS A JEWELRY CHANGE?
It will depend on the nature of the piercing and the jewelry we are switching to.
HOW SOON CAN I CHANGE MY JEWELRY?
When your piercing is totally healed, based on the minimal time period for that specific piercing, as established by our tenured artist. Please do not prematurely change jewelry as you risk damaging your investment.
DO YOU SELL ALL THE AFTERCARE PRODUCTS I’LL NEED?
We sell Provon, Tattoo Goo, and Redemption aftercare products. We'll discuss aftercare options with you during your visit and we're here for any questions.
DO YOU TATTOO PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WITH PARENTAL CONSENT?
No. There are no exceptions.
CAN YOU PIERCE MINORS?
