ACL Fest: Get your Flash Tats and Foo Fighters gear

After Lollapalooza this year, bloggers were all abuzz about a cool new fashion trend: Flash Tattoos. Wait a minute, that’s not new. The Austin-based company made their debut at ACL Festival two years ago and by last year, the graphic metallic temp toos were all over the fest.

This year the company, which recently launched a custom BeyoncĂ© line and has a new ‘Gem and the Holograms’ collection, has a bigger presence at the fest than ever. They’ve taken over the lawn at Shady Grove. We ran into them setting up their shop which opens at noon daily. Single tattoo applications ar $1 each and full sets are also available.


If you’re looking for a cool festival look with a little less bling you might want to stop by the ACL Fest satellite shop where the Foo Fighters have set up a pop up. The Foos are selling a special line of Texas-inspired memorabilia at the store. Standard ACL fest merch is also available.

The ACL Fest satellite store is located at 249 w Second St. It will be open daily through Monday, Oct. 12. Hours are 10 am to 8 pm Mon-Sat and 11 am to 6 pm Sunday.
