New York fashion on the racks and hip­ster “skin art” on the side

At Bright­side Bou­tique, two ex-pat New York­ers have part­nered to bring edgy cloth­ing in­spired by tat­too cul­ture to Bal­ti­more, a city that cher­ishes the off­beat. Marked by a sunny yel­low store­front in Fed­eral Hill, this vi­brant bou­tique packs quite a sur­prise in the back—a tat­too parlor. While Kike Castillo puts the ink and nee­dle to work, Christie Grif­fiths cu­rates funky cloth­ing and or­ga­nizes events like a Ca­sual Fri­day pop-up shop with re­fresh­ments from Union Craft Brew­ing Com­pany.— Rachel Chism
