AUSTIN, Texas — The time has come for Austin tattoo-lovers to flock to their favorite shops for Friday the 13th-themed tattoos!
Regardless of if you love spooky tattoos or dainty ones, you can probably find a design that's fit for you at the cheapest price you'll see all year long.
Here's what's buzzing around tattoo shops in the Austin area on Friday.
When Austin residents are in need of a Friday the 13th tattoo, the most famous shop to get one from is All Saints Tattoo on Sixth Street and Burnet Road. With over 600 designs, the shop offers no shortage of creative ways to get a "13" on your arms or legs.
Tattoos start out at $31 for a black outline and increase incrementally in price as more colors and shading are added to the design, to create a maximum price of $60. Tattoo lovers can get a maximum of two tattoos in one sitting and must wait in line outside the shop, as there are no appointments during the special.
Join the infamous line, if you dare!
Hours: 10 a.m. to midnight. Line closes at 10 p.m.
Locations: 514 E. Sixth St. and 8303 Burnet Road, Ste. 2
