Tattoo flash is a traditional art form displayed in tattoo shops throughout the world. Flash shows shop customers a curated selection of pre-designed art for them to draw inspiration or quickly pick a piece to ink.
The prompt challenged a wide range of visual artists to extend concepts from their bodies of work into the medium of flash - and in doing so challenge the form. The collected work will be exhibited at Canal Street Market and tattoo artists will be present to give these tattoos to willing participants at the opening.
