Friday the 13th

  • Black Lagoon Tattoo 118 East Santa Clara Street San Jose, CA, 95113 United States (map)

Due to the popularity of the event and the high turn out we have changed the structure of the event from the format of previous years. To reduce wait times we have created time blocks. Creation of these allow you to choose the time that you will arrive at the shop and guarantees you will be tattooed within that time block on Friday the 13th. Sign ups for the event will be held Wednesday April 11th at 9am. The doors will open at 9am allowing 5 people at a time to sign up themselves for their desired time block. To sign up you must be present with photo ID. You cannot sign up friends or family.

There is a $20 non refundable cash deposit required to sign up. On the day of the event if you “no show,” or arrive late; the deposit is forfeited and you will not be tattooed. This deposit will be subtracted from the cost of the tattoo when you pay on Friday.

On April 11th (sign up day), when you are let in, you will select your time block, fill out a consent form, and choose the one tattoo you desire from the available flash boards and it’s placement on your body. Like years before we will not be tattooing heads, faces, necks, ribs, hands, fingers, feet or genitalia. Be sure to plan ahead because the design and it’s placement on your body cannot be changed at the event on Friday the 13th.

No changes will be made to the designs available. All designs are available in Black and Grey or color for $80+$7 mandatory tip. There will be a limited number of time blocks available, so plan accordingly.
