Friday the $13 Tattoos
I’ve long been a fan of silly, nefarious tattoos. That’s why the Friday the 13th tradition of shops offering $13 tattoos tickles me so damn much.
The concept is simple: most participating shops provide custom 13-themed designs created especially for the limited one-day run—and the tattoos costs only $13. Call it a recession special and a shout at the devil, all in one.
Below are just a few of the tattoo parlors around the world offering the Friday the 13th special. If you do decide to take the plunge, remember to get to your local shop early as lines tend to form quickly.
And while I won’t be queuing up this time around, don’t put it past me in the future ;)
Death Or Glory
