If check engine light are blinking DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR. Bring the car back to the mechanic before more damage into the engine.

A flashing check engine light is warning you that the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. Probably one of the spark plug wires wasn't on tight and fell off. I had that happen to me once. Definitely take it back to whomever did the tune up. HTH. -Jim
