Among the things you probably shouldn't try to save money on, tattoos rank right near the top. But if you're feeling lucky on this supposedly unlucky day, you can score a $13 tattoo in honor of Friday the 13th at a number of Tampa Bay tattoo shops.
The rules vary from shop to shop, but generally, you'll probably have to choose from a sheet of small, pre-approved flash designs (no alterations), add in a minimum tip (always tip!), get your ink in a basic spot on your arm or leg (no hands or bottoms of feet) and bring cash.
Most places are only doing first-come, first-served walk-ins for the deal.
Among the local spots offering $13 tattoos are all 10 Tampa Bay locations of Atomic Tattoos, including Brandon, Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Largo.
They're also offering $31 tattoos that, at the Ybor City location, include a Tampa Bay Lightning logo if you're that hyped up for the playoffs.
Here are designs by some of the other local shops doing Friday the 13th deals.
Some of the other local shops that are advertising a $13 special today include Brass Monkey Tattoo in Spring Hill, Foolish Pride Tattoo Co. in St. Petersburg, Tampa Tattoo Co. in Tampa.
