Friday the 13th can be viewed as an unlucky spooky day. With the addition of a full moon which just so happens to coincide with the day this year, some are viewing it the perfect day to get a tattoo.
“I got here right at 9 and there were already about seven people ahead of me," David Kitchens said.
Usually, Cloak and Dagger Tattoo and Fine Arts Gallery isn’t open until about noon, but not on Friday the 13th.
“This is our first year open, so this is our first Friday the 13th," William Howard co-owner Cloak and Dagger Tattoo and Fine Arts Gallery said.
Some walked through the doors for a bonding experience.
“I just thought it would be to come out with my daughter to get a tattoo with her," Evan Shows, who is a father, said.
Others, like Lauren Caron were looking for the deals.
“It’s Friday the 13th, you can’t really beat 13 dollar tattoos so here we are," she said.
Caron decided to stay in the October spirit and add a witch hat as her sixth tattoo.
“It’s a day, it is what you make it so, I think this is a great way to spend a day,” she said.
“I’ve done like a headstone, I’ve done a couple [of] Halloween themed stuff," tattoo artist Alexander Sapp said. “I’m not superstitious, I’m just a little stitious."
David Kitchens showed up with his fiancee.
“Like the most last-second tattoo choice I’ve come up with," Kitchens said.
For David Kitchens, it was a day to return to his new favorite artist that just completed a matching tattoo with his fiancee.
"Kind of like how people are with their hairstylist, he’s my new tattoo artist, it’s a match made in heaven," Kitchens said.
Whatever got them here, all are leaving with a new piece of their life.
Kitchens decided to give himself an extra life, by adding the 'Mario Mushroom' to his forearm.
"I need some more lives,” Kitchens laughed.
While there is no going back now, Kitchens added he wouldn't even if he could.
