Would anyone happen to have any photos of the gates of Graceland? I am wanting to get a tattoo of the gates but can't seem to find a very good picture for the patteren......

This shot may not be close enough, but maybe it will work for you...

ColinB, I was scrolling down to type in your reply, but you beat me to it :lol:! MattC, if you get one on each cheek, don't go hanging any brown eyes, for you may have a shuttle bus come driving through - five o'clock tour - number seven :lol:! Smile, brother! Cheers!

I was just thinking that when Matt smiles, it would look like the gates were opening........

I'm sure that's what you had in mind, Colin.......

Nah guys, actually I am going to print out the picture after resizing it to a smaller size and have it put on my back or chest, not sure which yet. I think it will look cool :lol:

It's interesting they've removed the white guttering - must have caused issues for the shuttle buses.

Nobody has ever been able to tell me.....

If the gates were designed & built in 1957, how come he is wearing his 1970's Vegas-style flared trousers ?

Wed May 09, 2007 2:59 pm

Same reason he is sporting 70's sideburns?????

Funny thing is that if you walk through the gates and then look back he moves to the other side - how about that then.


Oh, they just wanted to keep the design symmetrical !

And each gate a mirror image of its twin, too !
