Friday the 13th isn’t so unlucky for tattoo lovers. It’s a tradition for tattoo parlors to offer discounted tattoos in honor of the day. Artists will often offer “flash” sheets, which are pre-drawn tattoos customers can choose from during a specific time period. For Friday the 13th, sometimes the designs will be in the style of the holiday — black cats, spiders, or otherwise “creepy” drawings — but often, they’re just simple, small tattoos emblazoned with the number 13.
No fear: 13 random facts to get you through Friday the 13th Here’s a roundup of tattoo shops in Austin offering special sales for Friday the 13th.
