Your Ultimate Guide to NYC's Friday the 13th Flash Events

Looking to snag a lucky number 13 this upcoming Friday? Look no further!

Every time Friday the 13th rolls around people can't help but feel a little superstitious. For centuries the 13th has been viewed as a day when all the mischief, bad luck, and demons in the universe are unleashed upon the world, resulting in a slew of unfortunate events for us mere mortals. In recent years though, Friday the 13th has also become a shining beacon of sorts for the tattoo community, as quite a few shops have begun incorporating some sort of Friday the 13th flash event into their schedules. So whether it be a broken mirror, a black cat, or just the good ol’ classic number 13, there’s at least this to look forward to alongside the bad luck and misfortune. 


Here at Tattoodo, we pride ourselves on bringing you the best curated content from the tattoo community, which is why we’re so excited to announce that we’ve done the light work for you, and have compiled a list of shops around New York that will be offering Friday the 13th flash art, as well as the dates, times, and prices. So without further ado, may we proudly present New York’s finest Flash Events for the first Friday the 13th of 2017. If you can't get out to grab a new tattoo this time you're going to have to wait all the way until October, and no one wants to wait that long. So get out there, have fun, and get a new tattoo. Enjoy!
