Spontaneous tattoos. Performed live. And decided by carnival games. Brave and adventurous people of Adelaide, this is for you!
There’s a 2018 Adelaide Fringe Extravaganza like no other coming soon. Called ‘Flashy Friday’s,’ this event will see live tattoos, roaming street performers, live music and carnival games hit our streets.
Held over three Friday nights in Port Adelaide, Black Diamond Tattoo will be turning into a tattoo carnival like Adelaide has never seen before. With 21 international, interstate and local tattoo artists over 3 separate nights, there will be many opportunities to stop on by.
All you need to do to get tattooed is play a carnival game to pick your tattoo. We’re talking spinning flashy wheels, flash scooters, and darts at the big bang. Your fate lies entirely in the hands of flashing games. (Of course, if you don’t like the first design chosen, you are able to play as many times as you like).
With food being supplied from La Popular Taqueria and beer from Pirate Life Brewing, the carnival spirit will well and truly be down at the Port.
So there you go, an event for the spontaneous, the adventurous and the brave… and probably not those of us who regret a haircut the minute we ask for it. (Because, you know, tattoos are a lot more permanent).
Where: 232 St Vincent St, Port Adelaide
When: 23 February, 2 March & 9 March
