WOW! What an EPIC event we had at our Grand Opening Celebration!
Check it out here:
WHAT IS A SURF N INK FLASH DAY?
Your opportunity to get an awesome piece of unique art at a ridiculously good price. Our featured artists have prepared several sheets of ‘flash’ with a price tag of only $50 each design for one day only. Join us for a day of live music, fun, and the new tattoo feeling.
NEXT FLASH DAY EVENT?
*No bookings; first come, first serve
A single ‘pineapple’ (aka a $50 note)
Featured Artists (from last event)
Where can I see what designs are available?
We’ll be posting ‘sneak previews’ on facebook and instagram to give you guys an idea of what will be available, but the full sheets will only be revealed in the studio window at 8pm the night before..
What price will the flash be?
All designs will cost you a mere pineapple. (That’s a $50 note for those non-aussies)
Can I make changes to the designs? What about making them smaller/bigger?
No, sorry, all designs are as is.
Will all the flash be available ALL day?
All designs can, and most probably will, be tattooed multiple times during the day.
Can I get tattooed more than once on the day?
Absolutely. 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 as many artists as you want.
What time are you open?
On flash day, our doors will open at 10am.
Should I line up?
Absolutely! Tattoos will happen on a first come, first served basis, so if you want to be certain of getting in, we’d recommend you come down EARLY and line up.
What time can I start lining up?
That’s up to you. Last event there were people out front as early as 4:30am. Crazy!
Will there be somewhere to park?
Yes, there is underground parking in the centre.
Can I book in advance?
No, however, we will begin registration from about 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’s an ANZ a few meters away tho.
What am I supposed to do while I’m waiting?
We have live entertainment booked in throughout the day including singer songwriter Jason Kafoa and special guests from Shakafest! We also have a few games and surprises to keep you guys entertained so feel free to stick around and hang out. 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 (it’s only 2 blocks away), or down a beer or two at Miami Tavern (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.
What are the prizes and giveaways and how do I win them?
Each artist is giving away a tattoo voucher to get inked by them, plus you’ll have the opportunity to win t-shirts and other merch, as well as aftercare, stickers and even chocolate! Entering is easy and fun… but you’ll have to turn up on the day to find out what we have in store for you! Anyone can enter and you don’t need to get tattooed on the day to enter the comps.
Fine Print: First come first serve; no bookings. Be here at 10am to register. Once registered you will be given an estimated time that the artist will be ready to tattoo you later in the day. Tattoos must be paid for in full at the time of registration. Cash only. No changers (including enlarging/reducing) of tattoo designs.
