Many tattoo shops hold sales for Friday the 13th. Customers pick through a series pre-drawn images, referred to as “flash,” to be tattooed onto their body. Typically, the flash for these Friday the 13th events are smaller tattoos, drawn in the american traditional style, often with subject matter relating to good or bad luck, and often feature prominent numeral 13s.
Rather than reuse the same sets of flash from one Friday the Thirteenth to the next, Steel and Ink artists create a new set of flash for each event. The flash sheet pictured above will be available for customers of Steel and Ink Studio on February 13th 2015, but the full set will only be shown in the studio on Friday the Thirteenth.
