Epicenter Studios puts a creative twist on the superstitious day Friday the 13th.
Epicenter, located on Sixth Avenue is giving $13 tattoos on Nov. 13 in honor of the “holiday.”
Anyone interested in getting a tattoo can pick from a series of tattoos the shop has already designed specifically for Friday the 13th.
Each tattoo is small in size and has the number 13 somewhere in the design of the tattoo.
Tattoos must be selected from the designs the shop has already provided on the list. No custom orders or adjustments can be made to the tattoo design the artists have already provided.
Tattoo artist Ryan Worley said the first time Epicenter Studios did Friday the 13th tattoos, approximately 200 people got tattoos. The second time, approximately 170 people got them.
Epicenter Studios has been giving 13-themed tattoos for five to six years and give them every Friday the 13th.
All tattoos are done in black ink; however, color can be added to some designs, but not all of them.
Epicenter Studios is the only tattoo shop in the area that gives Friday the 13th tattoos.
Worley said a large number of people typically come out for the tattoos and the wait can last up to two hours.
The trend has received a lot of positive feedback from the Huntington community for several years.
Senior communication disorders major Mary Margaret Wolfe said she got a Friday the 13th tattoo last year with her friends and said she is considering getting another one this year.
Tattoos will be given on a first-come first-serve basis and can only be paid for in cash.
Epicenter will follow its normal operating hours opening at noon and closing at 8 p.m.
