We Take walk-ins every day and try to tattoo everyone, but you may have to wait or make an appointment for another day. A deposit is required for all appointments and drawings. No appointments will be scheduled or drawings started without a deposit. The deposit will go toward the final price of the tattoo, and it is non-refundable. 48 hours notice is required to reschedule or cancel an appointment. If proper notice is not given, the deposit is forfeited and another deposit is required to set up another appointment.
Tattoos will not be quoted over the phone or internet. It is always better to talk to the artist in person at the shop to discuss your tattoo. For out-of-town clients, electronic communications are at the discretion of the artist.
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 taken 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.
