I found the following site called Vicker And Scrivener, while searching the internet for dip pens. Although they make glass handle dip pen holders, i.e. a dip pen, they, also, produce ink wells and inks. I noticed that they are located in Galveston, Texas (Gulf Of Mexico) and wondered about the properties of their inks and how they might compare to other permanent and waterproof inks?

I like the looks of the poison pen ink.  :)

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Nice looking bottle too. Quite elegant.

I received the following reply to my queries from V&S about the Visker & Scrivener black inks and/also ink well. I believe V&S sells their ink at Renaissance Fairs and similar events.

"Our "Sumi" ink is denser and will create finer lines than our black "India" ink. The India ink is more permanent than the Sumi, however, neither one of the inks is 100% waterproof. Unfortunately, if you were to watercolor over them, the ink would smudge.
The wood inkwells are very stable and hold a small amount of ink, perfect for dipping a quill point into. I like using them because I don't have to think about accidentally dipping too far into an ink bottle or touching the sides of a bottle opening with the handle (which subsequently could get ink on my fingers.... then on the paper.... and probably the table or my clothes.... etc..."
