If you’re thirsty for a cheap can of iced tea, some colorful swag and a new tattoo, this new pop-up sounds just about right for you.

On Wednesday, Arizona Iced Tea opened up a week-long pop-up shop in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, where it is selling limited quantities of branded merchandise guaranteed to make any brand faithful swoon. The over-the-top event was organized to honor the brand’s 25th anniversary.

In addition to 99-cent cans of the convenience store requisite tea, the pop-up is offering everything from hats and jackets to belts, bags and wallets. Customized Nike kicks are available, as are boogie boards and weekend bags. There’s even an Arizona bike for sale.

But it doesn’t stop at clothes and consumer goodies; the pop-up will have two well-known tattoo artists on-site, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sunday and Monday. And—get this—the tattoos are free.

JonBoy—who has tattooed the likes of Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner with his signature tiny designs—kicked off the festivities on Wednesday, and will return on Sunday. Rob Green, of Manhattan’s Bang Bang Tattoo, will be doing designs on Friday and Monday.

While Arizona claimed that the tattoos would be tea-themed, snapshots of Wednesday’s ink tell a different, more free-wheeling story.

So if you’re an iced-tea superstar or if you’re just in the market for a colorful new lid, make your way down to SoHo, and prepare for a line. At least there’s cheap refreshments once you get inside.
