How do you feel about The King? How do you feel about 100 of him? Whether you consider yourself a fan of The King or a good time, get your blue suede shoes ready for the 17th Annual Night of 100 ELVISes.

Other forms of entertainment, like the annual ice sculpture of Elvis with his guitar, will pay tribute to The King as well, not to mention the complimentary southern buffet filled with some of Elvis’ favorite dishes.

Art is known for its expansive array of subjects, materials, and mediums. One art form that pushes the limits of all those aspects is certainly tattoos. At the Baltimore Tattoo Museum, not only can you brush up on your history of electric tattooing but there’s a fully functioning tattoo studio as well.
Tattoos are gotten for all sorts of motives – aesthetic, spiritual, remembrance, etc – and it’s likely someone you know has at least one. Tattoos have been a large part of culture for a long time, but electric tattooing has sprung up just since the late 19th century. In the museum, you’ll get to explore the rapid history along with modern technology and masterpieces. From American to Japanese techniques, black and gray portraits, photo-realism and more, you’re sure to walk out knowing something you didn’t before.
