When it comes to female horror icons, few are as beloved as the great Elvira; and if you’re among her legion of fans, you’ll want to tune in to A&E’s “Epic Ink” next week, when she gets her very first tattoo! Here’s a sneak peek.
The Mistress of the Dark visited Area 51 Tattoo during the shop’s Friday the 13th celebration. The episode airs Wednesday, September 17th, at 10:30 pm ET/PT on A&E.
It’s Friday the 13th, and to celebrate, Chris 51 and his crew are about to blow the roof off Area 51 with the biggest party of the year and a surprise celebrity guest. First, three female friends come to the shop and get epic horror and sci-fi themed tattoos. Chris Jones inks a hyper-real zombie from one of George Romero’s classic horror films, Jeff engineers an impressive ray gun, and Josh goes to the dark side with a lifelike portrait of Elvira, ”Mistress of Dark.” Then Elvira herself (Cassandra Peterson) appears.
“Epic Ink” follows the artwork and exploits of the staff at a tattoo shop unlike any other, Area 51 Tattoo, located in Springfield, Oregon. Area 51 sits at the intersection of pop culture and cutting-edge tattoo art. The artists at Area 51 specialize in hyper-realistic tattoos featuring beloved characters and scenes from favorite sci-fi films and pop culture.
