“Still Not Asking For It” is a worldwide tattoo flash fundraiser aiming to work towards awareness, prevention & recovery from sexual assault and rape.  We are working to create and embrace a supportive and healing community in an industry that has been quiet for far too long.
100% of proceeds from this event will go to Victoria Sexual Assault Centre

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who helped raise $10,236.00 for Victoria Sexual Assault Centre!


*for your safety, we ONLY accepted your donations directly to VSAC via our GoFundMe link above.



 1.  Silent Flash Auction: NOW CLOSED!

(For Vancouver Island residents)

We can’t host an in-house flash event how we have in the past due to COVID, so we’re going to silent auction our tattoo flash!  Participating Painted Lotus artists will be holding silent flash auctions via their INSTAGRAM accounts!



  • Bidding opens Sat, June 5 and closes Sat, June 12 @ 5pm PST
    • any bids placed after 5pm PST on June 12 will not be counted.
  • Auctions will be held via artist instagram accounts (individually linked above)
    • Pay attention to the individual auction rules!  Each artist is running their own tattoo auction and details may vary.  What is written on their auction post goes!
  • Only Vancouver Island residents may bid (due to our current shop COVID policy)
  • Flash pieces are ONE-OFFs!
    • This is NOT a flash day like the past, this is a silent auction for a SINGLE flash piece.  It will be tattooed only once onto the winner of the auction.
  • Comment on the flash post to bid
  • Highest bid at closing wins the tattoo flash piece!
    • By commenting to bid, you commit to donating your bid (if you win) to the event GoFundMe immediately after being notified of winning by your tattoo artist.  Do not bid if you do not commit!
    • SECURITY:  There are NO new accounts created to contact the winners.  Everything will be run through our existing accounts linked above.  Be wary of fake accounts.
  • Winners will be contacted Sun, June 13!
    • Winning bidder will be notified via instagram DM by their tattoo artist and will be asked to forward their donation receipt to the shop (paintedlotustattoo@gmail.com)
      • The shop will connect you to your artist to book (via email) once your donation is confirmed
      • Due to schedules, some artists are booking 2-3 months in advance
