North Texas haunted houses — and a tattoo shop! — capitalize on Friday the 13th
Posted by Flickr user alicia rae
Friday the 13th is that spooky, unlucky day that inspires us to suffer through horror flicks and play mean jokes on our friends. Those who are terrified of this specific day have friggatriskaidekaphobia. Friggin' right.
Those who aren't afraid of the curse(s) of Friday the 13th have a few frightening options to choose from in North Texas.
Elm Street Tattoo is hosting a 24-hour tattoo marathon where every tattoo costs an unlucky $13. (All told, your tat will set you back $20 cash because they request a $7 tip. You don't want to skip that part; those things don't erase easily.) The marathon is all day on Friday the 13th, from 12 a.m. to midnight.
Also, four haunted houses are cashing in on the calendar. Visit any of these wicked spots on Friday:
- Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth
- Moxley Manor Haunted House in Bedford
- The Fatal End in the West End in Dallas
- Zombie Manor in Arlington
