The second AddiDraws studio Valentine’s flash tattoo event took place 15 and 16th of February! Can’t believe how fast time flies. Having been super successful in 2019, I decided to make it even bigger and set up for the whole weekend. Both us and the clients were very happy with that decision!
Flash tattoo means that clients can choose from pre-drawn designs. A cool aspect of this type of event is that tattoos are generally cheaper than usual, plus you get free food and drinks, a chill atmosphere and great company. I think flash tattoos carry a fun vibe which gives them a unique, special meaning.
This time around I decided not to go for one specific theme, instead each of us drew what we wanted. For me, Valentine’s day is mostly connected with friends (from the Estonian meaning – friends’ day), so I made my flash sheet about love for animals. Should be something a lot of people can relate to! Janely’s drawings were more romantic and Kerli’s had a slight twist and were cute in their own way. Our designs were completely different so the clients had a wide range to choose from.
I took clients on Saturday, while Janely and Kerli helped change supplies and meet guests. I baked a whole bunch of vegan treats and other goodies for the table, Janely once again took to decorating the studio (it’s incredible how she finds this stuff!). The whole tempo and setting was nice and calm, although I had 8 bookings. At the end of the day, I was really happy with the designs which were picked! It was great to see both familiar and new faces.
On Sunday, Janely and Kerli took over the tattooing: it’s awesome to watch how much they’ve developed over the year and how both tempo and quality keep improving! Sunday was also the day where more people came through just to have a coffee and chat rather than get tattooed. The AddiDraws studio always aimed to be a nice place to just chill and spend time with friends and clients. Loved observing it!
The Valentine flash was truly a success this year, so many great memories! Although we were quite tired by the end of it, the atmosphere kept everyone in a great mood. Thanks to clients, there are lots of new ideas for next flash events!
