Friday the 13th — a superstitious day for some, but Black Friday for tattoo enthusiasts. Getting inked on Friday the 13th is a longstanding tradition in the tattoo community. Basically, shops will offer an array of flash tattoos (pre-drawn artwork) for a discounted price — some shops offering the ink as low as $13.

Not every shop participates in the holiday, but we found a handful that are gearing up for the big day. Pro tip: Get to the shop early — lines tend to form early.
