Opening Event Free Flash Day

Free flash day was a huge success thanks to everyone who came out! We completed 130 tattoos in one day with 5 artists working. We hope to have the same amazing turn out for our future events. Check out our video (on the left) to see or relive some of the action from that dat. Thank you so much to the 400 people who showed up for this event and we are so sorry we couldn't get to everyone. We definitely didn't expect to have such a high turnout, but are so pleased that we did. We hope to improve the way the event is run in the future for increased convenience of our clients, so thank you again to everyone who came out and participated!
