If you're a fan of Ink Master on Spike TV like I am, then this is a really cool festival to head to. Oliver Peck, host and judge on the show, also owns Elm Street Tattoo in Deep Ellum downtown Dallas. I'm such a fan I even have a piece by Ink Master Season 2 winner Steve Tefft.

Starting Thursday and rolling through Sunday night the Elm Street Music And Tattoo Fest will encompass all things tattoo. From live bands to art shows, tattoos to karaoke and even a Sailor Jerry Harley Davidson unveiling. If you can make a quick trip to the metro then get some tickets here and head on to the party.
