Mimsy and Pony Gleeson, the husband and wife duo running Trailer Trash Tattoo in Annerley since 2008, are hosting a Flash Day with eight resident artists and three guest artists for a special fundraiser for the Brisbane City Rollers (BCR).
A Flash Day is similar to flash sales at fashion stores with huge discounts and promotions available for a limited period. Except with tattoos, you will have to wear what you choose for the rest of your life!
Trailer Trash Tattoo Flash Day will run on 24 July 2021 beginning at 10 a.m. at Mimsy’s establishment on Fanny Street.
The Annerley tattoo establishment has evolved as a bustling hub of art and creativity where the artists are known for their great attention to detail and excellent customer service.
Mimsy, who started doing tattoos inside a 1959 trailer (hence the name!), will lead the following artists covering various styles for Flash Day:
- Mimsy Gleeson
- Clayton Drew
- Marlon Maher
- Swasthik Iyengar
- Allerga Maeva
- Connor Marsh
- Kyle Easy
- Sean Miami Baxter
The artists’ stalls will be set at the back of Mimsy’s place, where visitors may also chill out and have fun with some lawn games that will be prepared for the event.
Sausage Sizzle, drinks, and a bake sale with vegan options will also be hosted at the back by the Brisbane City Roller Roller Derby League. The BCR was invited to run the sausage sizzle fundraiser for their travel teams.
“Our Shop Manager, Stevie, skates with BCR and knows how heavily the league relies on these opportunities to help support their competitive teams with travel expenses. Brisbane City Rollers are an inclusive all-gender league whose core values we respect and appreciate.”
“Come along and support our small business, get a fun tattoo, enjoy the sausage sizzle, buy some art, and have a good time!” Mimsy said.
Trailer Trash Tattoo Flash Day will be a COVID safe event with social distancing, sanitation and face mask. Booking for a tattoo will be on a first-in, first-served basis. Payment is cash only.
“We’re super excited to open the doors to our first Flash Day of 2021. We’re keeping a close eye on the ever-evolving Covid-19 recommendations from the government and will be monitoring the event to ensure it’s Covid-19 safe & enjoyable for everyone!” Stevie said.
