It’s a longstanding tradition for tattoo artists and shops to offer $13 tattoos for one day only in honor of Friday the 13th. These days, it’s rare to find anyone sticking to the original price, but many places still celebrate and offer special flash design deals. Whether you’re looking to get your first ink or you need to find space for your latest addition, we’ve compiled a list where you can go get tatted as part of the occasion.

Black Hole Body Piercing & Tattoo List
Black Hole's Eastside location (don't go to the Beaverton shop lookin' for deals!!) will offer flash specials from 11 am to 10 pm. Walk-ins and appointments are available.

Dead Gods Tattoo
Both west side locations of this shop will have the first-ever custom flash event on Friday the 13th starting at noon. There will be two tiers of flash available based on size and color—tier one is $80-$120 and tier two is $130+, cash only. 
Tigard, West Linn
