What is “Tattoo Flash”?
“Flash” is a collection of tattoo designs classically printed or drawn on an 11″ x 14″ piece of paper. Flash is either drawn by the individual tattooer for display and use in his own studio, or traded and sold among other tattooers. By the turn of the new century, most tattoo studios have become custom shops with the flash serving as more of a reference for ideas. The Quick & Painful Flash will feature tattoo designs by a variety of pop artists.
