Feeling bummed out that the super elaborate costume you worked so hard on (or spent so much money on) will only be good for one night? Well there’s a way to make this Halloween last forever, and your dollar go a little farther, by costuming your body, permanent-style. We’ve listed four Brooklyn spots that are offering $31 tattoos, plus a $9 tip, on October 31.
143 N. 4th Street
At Asylum this year, it’s first come, first serve $31 tats from noon Wednesday until the clock strikes midnight Halloween night sending all the ghouls back to wherever they normally live. Check their flash above, which offers an homage to the Simpsons with Mr. Burns and a slutty witch just because.
178 N. 8th Street
The all-vegan ink spot is offering up scary stigmas that are ethically and financially sound. Their flash sheet has traditional spiders and skeletons, plus artist Franco’s gothic Durer-esque sketches of Mr. Death and an hourglass with jack-o-lantern teeth.
Greene Ave Tattoo
755 Grand Street
The Williamsburg establishment will reprise last year’s deal. Save on the eye candy, then treat yourself to a couple picklebacks at the Bushwick Country Club.
44 Wyckoff Avenue
The folks at Bushwick’s Morningstar Tattoo are aiming for a scary surprise by not revealing their flash until Halloween day. Spook yourself into being spontaneous this year!
