We’ll post previews of the designs on our Facebook Event Page, however the full range of designs will be available to view in our studios from 8:00am the morning of the event.

Where can I see what designs are available?
We’ll be posting ‘sneak previews’ on our Facebook event page to give you guys an idea of what will be available, but the full sheets will only be revealed in the studio windows at 8am the morning of.
What price will the flash be?
A variety of designs will be available from $50-$200.
Can I make changes to the designs? What about making them smaller/bigger?
No, sorry, all designs are as is. Exception: a design in colour can be tattooed in black and grey (but not the other way around); the price stays the same.
Will all the flash be available ALL day?
All designs can, and most probably will, be tattooed multiple times during the day. Its a good idea to make sure you’re at the front of the line however, as once an artist becomes booked out for the day, their designs will no longer be available.
Can I get tattooed more than once on the day?
To ensure we fit in as many people as possible, it’s one tattoo per person. Again, it would be a good idea to make sure you’re at the head of the line on the day so we can make sure you’re locked in with the artist and design of your choice.
What time are you open?
On flash days we kick off registration at 9:45 and first tattoos from 10am.
Should I line up?
Yes! Tattoos will happen on a first in, first served basis, so if you want to be certain of getting in, we’d recommend you come down EARLY and line up. Our last event saw people lining up as early as 3:00am and the event certanily drew a crowd.
What time can I start lining up?
That’s up to you. Last event there were people out front as early as 3:00am. Crazy!
Will there be somewhere to park?
Miami: There is underground parking in the centre.
Surfers Paradise Studios: There are several car parks throughout Surfers Paradise from as little as $9 a day.
Can I book in advance?
No, however, we will begin registration from 9:45am on Saturday morning, at which time we will give you an estimated appointment time for later in the day.
Can I be assured of getting tattooed if I turn up?
We’ll try to get to absolutely everybody, but obviously can’t be sure how many people will be here on the day. If you want to be certain, get here first.
Can I choose what time of day I get tattooed?
Unfortunately not. To enable us to see everyone that wants to be seen, we’ll be slotting people in with the artists in the order that they arrive and line up. That may mean you will have a period of time between when you first register and when you actually start tattooing.
Do I have to leave a deposit when I register for my tattoo in the morning?
All tattoos must be paid for IN FULL when you register. With the huge number of clients in and out the door all day, it’s a logistical pain in the ass to take deposits in the morning and then the balance of each throughout the day. Plan ahead and come armed with cash when you first turn up.
How can I pay?
Our studio is a cash only business, and as such does NOT have facilities to take payments via credit or debit card. There are ATM’s within 100 meters of all our studios however.
What am I supposed to do while I’m waiting?
Please also enjoy the other local business in the centre, or grab a few mates and a picnic and go chill out at the beach, or down a beer or two at a nearby pub (we didn’t say that!).
I don’t finish work until 5pm? Can I still get tattooed?
Call us before you come down after work and we’ll be able to tell you what each artist’s day is looking like. They want to tattoo and will do their best to tattoo you all.
