Another Friday the 13th is approaching and that means you’re about to be super unlucky this Friday…or, not, but it does mean you can get deals on tattoos at shops around the Bay Area.
Why is Friday the 13th so special when it comes to getting a tattoo? A tattoo of the number 13 has been considered a lucky symbol in the tattooing world & is often associated with other lucky symbols. Thus, $13 tattoo deal on Friday the 13th became a thing & similar deals have been adopted by shops around the world.

These are shops that have had deals in the past so we advise calling ahead to see if they will be doing anything special this week.
