Located right next door to Two Hands Tattoo on Ponsonby Rd, Flash City is one part barber, one part tattoo parlour.
The concept was originally launched as a pop up by Two Hands owner Stefan Sinclair, who wanted to tip his hat to some of the first tattoo parlours that were often found out back of a barber shop. You’ll be treated to tattoo designs and vintage posters on the walls and will be in good hands whether you’re keen for an inking or a shaving. On this occasion I opted for the latter and took part in some quality man banter that traversed weekend small talk to misshapen heads.
They provide sharp cuts and straight razor shaves and have complimentary Coopers on Thursday nights.
