ULTA - Tattoo Parlor

Illustrators Needed for Drawn on Fake Tattoos

NYC Creative Agency, Harley & Co. is looking to hire local artists to draw on fake tattoos in their custom Tattoo Parlor activation at ULTA's Beauty 2018 Conference. We would work directly with artists to create the tattoo designs and a 'flash sheet' for guests to pick from at the event. 


The event is on April 5th, during the day 11am - 4pm and will be highly attended with beauty stakeholders and ~1500 guests. We'd have a sign up process for the tattoos so it won't get too crazy. We are looking for two artists max. We'd really love to collaborate with local artists to make this a very cool event.

Please email Ryan Casucci at ryan@harleyandcompany.com with work examples and contact information.
