A semi-rare occasion, Friday the 13th arouses the superstition even in the most rational, level-headed of us. It’s also a day that has become associated with tattoo specials for some reason.
While the correlation between Friday the 13th and tattoos is foggy at best, there’s also never a good reason to argue about great tattoo deals, much less when they’re done by experienced professionals.
Some shops, like South Philly’s Forever Valentine, have dropped out of the tattoo deals this year due to it diminishing value of usual business, but others remain.
So whether you’re looking for a shiny new tombstone tramp stamp or just a new addition to the collection, these are Philly’s best places to go for your new ink this Friday.
