For most designs, Black Water Tattoo & Design requires an in-person consult (special arrangements can be made for out-of-town clients). The best method is to e-mail the tattoo artist with a general description and some basic reference material attached. From there, they will contact you to arrange the in-person consult. A $100 deposit is taking during the consultation before any drawings are made, and the deposit is non-refundable. The deposit does go towards the total cost of the tattoo and is deducted from the final session of the tattoo.
