Its become a strange tradition of sorts. Tattoo parlors for as long as I can remember, have been doing special prices for tattoos and piercings for Friday the 13th. The tradition was said to have been started in a tattoo shop in Dallas Texas, but that's up for debate.

Shreveport and Bossier's tattoo shops are no different! So, if you feel like getting ink'd and are on a budget, Friday the 13th is the day to do it! And "lucky" for you, there are lots of options for getting that cheap tattoo or piercing in the area!

Bloodline Tattoo on Youree Drive in Shreveport is running their Friday the 13th flash special! Tattoos starting at $60. Plus, Piercing specials, discounted merch and art, tattoo raffles, and more!!! Noon -midnight. First come first serve. Walk-ins only.

Tattoo Paradise Shreveport will have a flash-sheet special happening at 2pm. Flash sheet tatts start at 13 dollars plus a mandatory 7 dollar tip.

The Body Electric Tattoo on Jordan Street, will be starting their flash-sheet special at 1pm today. Tattoos start at 20 dollars.

And, our neighbors over the bridge at Pens and Needles Tattoo on Airline Drive in Bossier are hooking up flash sheet tattoos for 13 dollars plus the 7 dollar good-luck tip starting at noon today.

There are a lot of great tattoo parlors in the area. Do some research, and find out which one works for you! Happy Friday the 13th! And, good luck!
