I paid 13p for a random tattoo as part of a Friday 13th promotion – it was a gamble picking a design from a lucky dip | The Sun

A TATTOO fan and mum of four has revealed the 13p tattoo she chose after a five hour wait.

Zaffron shared her journey in a TikTok video online. 

She said: “Hey TikTokers, come with me and get a 13p tattoo.”

Zaffron said even though she arrived early there was a already long queue of customers excited to get 13p tattoos.

She said: “So here we are, we arrived at 9.40 and the queue was insane already. It was freezing cold.”

“So I had to go and run in and get a coffee, wrapped a blanket round my legs because we were down by the coast and it had a bitter chill.”

“Looked it re-questioned my judgement then and saw how busy it was but for 13p yeah I had to go for it.”

Zaffron decided to choose her tattoo through a lucky dip. 

“I chose the lucky dip and ended up getting the ugly ducking which was so cute.”

Turns out Keepsake Tattoo hold regular events on Friday 13th but this year they took their tradition a step further. 

Roger Clark from Keepsake Tattoo said: 

“We are a tattoo shop steeped in tradition, so we often hold events on Friday 13th, charging £13 for tattoos. This year, we decided to switch things up and charge 13p instead. 

We had a feeling it would be busy, but the day was far busier than expected, with hundreds of people turning up.

Holding these events costs us a lot of money, but is a great way to give back to the community that supports us so loyally. Everyone has a great time, customers and tattooers alike.
