Friday the 13th Tattoos in History

In society, there has always been fear surrounding this time of the year due to events in our history that have fallen on this date. A popular myth used to help explain the origin of this superstition comes from an event on Friday, October 13, 1307 in France, where hundreds of Knights Templar were arrested and burned. According to Catholic belief, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ also occurred on Friday 13th. With so much fear mongering put in place, it’s no wonder why the tattoo industry has proudly flipped the scenario and considered it good luck to get a tattoo on Friday the 13th.

Generally, when it comes to tattoos, impulse decisions based on price are never a good idea, until Friday the 13th rolls around. The incentive to get good quality tattoos fractioned in price as well as size is hard to refuse. Generally, people line up around buildings during this time of year to get a unique tattoo offered by a talented artist.  If you’re considering getting one, show up early or risk missing out. You will also want to see what tattoos will be offered for an event like this. Some artists only offer one tattoo design, and you should see a preview of it to be sure you want this permanently on your body. Also, be sure to check their reviews and see what other clients have thought of their previous work.

This year, our artist Leah, will be offering her flash tattoos on Friday, November 13, 2020. She has several pre-drawn designs that she will be offering to the public at half price, for one day only. Her designs range from skulls to flowers and many options in between. They will be first come, first served  and their small size will make them one of a kind!
