Plan ahead, tattoo shops usually have long lines for specials

Generally, tattoo shops will have a list of flash tattoos to choose from for the $13 special, however, rules vary from parlor to parlor.

Some tattoo shops extend the Friday the 13th special through the weekend and some shops start several days early.

Call your local tattoo parlor to see if they are participating in any $13 tattoo events.

Celebrity Ink SA and Ink Masters Tattoo Studio reached out to KSAT and will also be running a special for Friday the 13th.

Most tattoo parlors require a $7 tip or setup fee, so expect to pay more than $13.
