SAN ANTONIO – It’s common practice for some tattoo shops to offer $13 tattoos in celebration of Friday the 13th, and many San Antonio-area tattoo parlors are participating with discounted 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.
KSAT has confirmed that the following parlors plan to participate:
- Ink Masters Tattoo Studio
- Boerne Tattoo Company
- Ink Couture Tattoos
- Master Minds Tattoo
- Live Through This Tattoos
- Legion Ink
- Off the Clock Tattoo
- Inkline Tattoo
- Celebrity Ink SA
- Nite Owl Tattoo Studio
Plan ahead, as all the shops listed expect to have long lines and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.
Most tattoo parlors require a $7 tip or setup fee, so expect to pay more than $13.
By the way, did you know there will never be more than three Friday-the-13ths in one calendar year?
Editor’s note: This story previously included Skin Graphics Tattoo & Body Piercing. A spokesperson for the parlor reached out to KSAT Thursday and said “we’ve decided no to do the Friday the 13th this time.”
