Summer is in full swing, and while you’re probably feeling more sunburned than spooked, this Friday is the 13th, and who knows what might happen? Might as well get a cheap tattoo to commemorate your fun, reckless summer, as Friday the 13th has become a regular special day in the tattoo industry. Bring in your own self-designed unlucky mermaid or ghostly shipwreck to Citizen Ink, or pick out a sketch from a shop’s flash sheet — like the ripe red cherries with a “13” tag from Gristle or the barbecue pit labeled “13” from Asylum. Here are five places that are offering specials this Friday, which is the last Friday the 13th until September of 2013!
For a list of places offering the tattoos on this year’s Friday the 13th, check out our list here
178 N. 8th St. between Bedford and Driggs, Williamsburg
This Williamsburg shop provides vegan tattoo services. Check out the flash sheet. They’ll ink you anywhere except your torso, “private bits,” or neck.
1603 Avenue U between E. 16 and E. 17 streets, Sheepshead Bay
The folks at Citizen Ink will do any designs from their Friday the 13 flash sheet (available at the shop) and will consider drawings you bring in, provided they fit the Freaky Friday theme.
Greenpoint Tattoo Company
131 Meserole Ave., Greenpoint
The gang at Greenpoint Tattoo will have their flash sheet ready on the day itself, so head on in and make a spur of the moment decision that’ll last forever!
