In honor of Friday the 13th, people across the country are rolling up their sleeves to some discount ink.
It’s a tradition that started back in 2001 according to Mad Dog Tattoo owner Marc DeLeon. It was a sort of customer appreciation event he says.
Every Friday the 13th Mad Dog Tattoo joins in by offering $13 tattoos.
DeLeon says he expects to tattoo about 250 to 300 people Friday with many lined up around the shop.
Mad Dog Tattoo isn’t the only local shop participating. Modern Electric Tattoo Company is also taking part with discount tattoos.
The tattoo special is first come, first served, but you must pick from a pre-selected group of designs at Mad Dog Tattoo.
