    What does the tattoo mean?

      The term tattoo originated as one of the final bugle calls of the day at a military installation. This historical term is now also used to describe a military showcase and musical performance!

    Of course marching and drill are wonderful, but such a floor show-like performance is also fun.

    Everyone seems to forget that Louis Prima was the composer of Sing, Sing, Sing. Benny Goodman merely popularised it, albiet with an amazing rendition. The original had a handful of lyrics.

    What an incredible performance! I don't think it matters whether or not the songs were originally written for the military or not; the emotion and skill in all of them is wonderful regardless! Thank you so much for sharing this video with us!

    The military tattoo has become much less military. The tattoos some years ago was much better

      I agree, Edinburgh started it, and a lot seem to be following along the same path.

      You're right. But most of the music in the tattoos has nothing with the military to do. I wonder why they call it "military tattoo."

      The USMC silent drill platoon also traveled to Norway for the event. I assume that will be the “Drill” representing the US

      It says "floor show" in the title, i assume this was not the main event but rather a second more casual show. I might be wrong though
