South Water Studios is a 100% disposable studio. All equipment is single use only and discarded after each client. All of our inks are made in the USA or UK by long standing companies who exceed proper manufacturing standards. We exceed all state and local health department requirements and encourage you to come and check out our studios for yourself. We will gladly answer any questions you may have.
Due to frequent changes in Covid rates our policies will adjust as needed to stay compliant with the local and state health departments. We ask that you just assume you will be required to wear a mask for the duration of your appointment. If things change we will let you know at the time of your appointment. We may ask for proof of vaccination in relation to mask wearing. We also ask that you do not bring extra people to your appointment unless you have let us know in advance. If conditions change, updated operating procedures will be posted on the door of the shop.
We offer professional eyeliner and eyelash enhancement, powder brow, and hairstroke brow.
Wendi has completed advanced brow training and color correction with Teryn Darling of Girlz ink, Nano line hairstroke technique with Mary Ritcherson of MR Natural lines, and SAF® smoky lash enhancement with Will Anthony of Will Anthony Permanent Cosmetics. She is also a PhiBrows certified Microblading artist.

Estimates are general estimates
Exact prices are determined once the tattoo is complete. Adjustments made to the final art, skin type and client breaks needed all factor into the total price.
If you have gotten a sunburn anytime in the 2 weeks prior to your appointment, you will need to reschedule.
We accept cash, Venmo and credit/debt cards (cards will incur a convenience fee).
Cover-ups require 2-3 times more work by the artist and will take more time and be more expensive than a normal tattoo.
