Every Friday the 13th we have a special sheet of designs we work from for the day for $13 and a lucky $7 tip. There's a few ground rules for the day to help move things along and keep the day fun for everyone. We take names and give you a number. There's usually a line starting early in the morning but once we get your name down you're free to wander off until your number is up. One person = One name on the list. The doors open up for tattooing at noon and we go until closing time around 10pm. We are usually able to tattoo about 200 people on Friday the 13th depending on the days designs. We usually shut down the list at about 200 people.
It's a very hectic day and your choices are limited on Friday the 13th. If you want a tattoo done to your specifications in a normal environment you should probably not get tattooed on Friday the 13th. If you see an extra fancy Friday the 13th tattoo (extra colors, design changes, or we're tattooing someone on their hand or something) it's probably one of our regular customers (customers who don't just come in for Friday the 13th). Our regular customers might get special treatment, it's true.
While you are waiting we encourage you to explore the neighborhood and visit some of the other businesses in the area. We post a map in the window with our favorite spots. It's a long day, it's very tiring so it really helps when people come in with smiles to go around. The shop doesn't make $$ on Friday the 13th, it actually cost us $$ and we are very tired at the end of the day so we really appreciate nice words and any nice reviews you can leave for us online. Thank you!
