Friday the 13th has become an unofficial holiday for many tattoo shops across America, and Lubbock has many shops that participate as well. It's a shop-to-shop thing, so don't show up to a shop at random expecting a Friday the 13th deal.

For shops that are willing to brave the ruckus, the day is filled with long lines and near constant tattooing. So be courteous, patient and follow all the rules. Be nice to your tattooer; they probably have a sore back making sure you have a fun experience.

The designs featured here are from Stay True Tattoo (1111 Avenue J), which is also offering piercing deals today.
