Are free tacos for life worth getting a taco tattoo?

Union Taco is offering a deal

Union Taco, which has a location in Manayunk and Flourtown, is celebrating Day of the Dead with a taco promotion. On Nov. 2, the restaurant will serve $2 beef tacos all day to those who dine-in, which is a decent deal. 

However, Union Taco is also offering a way to score free tacos for life -- the best four words to hear. The first five people willing to ink Union Taco's logo onto their body will receive one free taco every day for the rest of their life, as well as up to 10 free tacos on Nov. 2.

Here's the logo:

Willing to ink this on your body?


Customers must post a picture of their tattoo on Union Taco's Facebook page and go into the restaurant on Nov. 2 to identify themselves.

"They’ll also receive an 'arm wash test' to verify that it’s not henna or ink," chef Nick Farina stated in a press release.

The idea might seem out there, but it's not the first time a restaurant has offered free food in exchange for a tattoo promoting the brand. 

On Oct. 13, &pizza opened in Center City and promised free pizza to those who got the brand’s signature ampersand inked on them.

So, the real question is: how far are you willing to go for free food?
