Tattoo Flash Event

Together we can make a difference!

Let your voice be heard!

My name is Krista Reid, a tattoo artist at Oak & Iron in Buffalo, NY. In 2022, our shop manager Bri and I organized this event in response to the overturn of Roe v Wade. This is our third year running the nationwide flash event to raise money for National Network of Abortion Funds.

Body autonomy goes beyond our reproductive rights. It’s the right to consent. The right to choose. The right to be yourself. We raised 400k with all of your help and we want to continue adding to that donation, continue making noise, and continue fighting for our rights!

$492,737.00

Raised and counting!
Since July 2022

That’s completely up to the shop/artist. Most shops will post specific details closer to the event date. Keep a look out on your local shop’s social media.

What if I can’t attend?

Feel free to share the event to get the word out. If you’re able to donate to NNAF that would be so helpful!

Receipts of donations are required to be sent to mbmcflashevent@gmail.com or future participation will be revoked. This event is not an opportunity for a quick cash grab or free promotion. If your heart isn’t with the cause, please don’t register.

Can I design my own flash?

Please feel free to make your own flash sheet! There will be a collective flash sheet of simple designs that will take 30 minutes or less to tattoo. You’ll be able to download the sheet when it becomes available. Whatever you’re comfortable with!
