What to Know
Port City Tattoo in Long Beach
11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Chatting up a foodie friend about the foodstuffs you fancy?
It's a lovely way to pass the time, but then the moment arrives: Your eats-obsessed pal asks you about a sandwich you especially dig, one you have to gobble often, and suddenly your mind goes blank and your spirit sinks, just a little.
Being put on the sandwich spot can be intense.
Let not your spirit sink, however, for there's now a way to always, always, and we do mean always remember the meaty must-have in your life, if you're an Arby's aficionado: Get a free tattoo of it, so the image and happy memory of it remains forever close.
And if you do adore Arby's, the roast-beefy company wants to help you out on the whole showing-the-world-your-favorite-nosh front: There's an Arby's-themed complimentary tattoo event, at Port City Tattoo in Long Beach, on Saturday, Sept. 22.
The artist behind these pay-nothing, forever-and-always additions to your person? The acclaimed Miguel Montgomery.
The ink-it-up choices? They're plentiful, if you're looking for something a bit fierce, a bit fun, and very, very sandwich-centered.
But while the theme of this event is indeed "a free sandwich for life," that free sandwich is in the form of a tattoo, not actual free sandwiches at Arby's.
Yay. Now here's more free meat-a-tude, of the you-can-eat-it kind: There shall be Arby's for attendees to enjoy during the free tattoo-giving event, which is on from 11 a.m. through to 8 in the evening on the 22nd.
While the free Arby's tattoos will begin and end on Sept. 22 at Port City Tattoo, there is a flash sheet, online, of the designs, should you want to take your pick elsewhere, to another studio, on another day.
Nope, that tattoo won't be free, but it will remind you, for your own personal eternity, just what you love to lunch upon, when you're Arby's-adjacent and hankering for something to stave off the savory cravings.
