"From the ancient South Pacific Islanders and swarthy sailors of yore to modern-day, leather-clad Harley-Davidson bikers, the art of tattooing has evolved into a 21st century fashion statement. This documentary explores the rising popularity of the age-old practice and takes a look at tattoo parlors, conventions, artists and aficionados who aspire to cover every possible inch of skin as a means of creative personal expression. I enjoyed watching this documentary very much. A 5 stars movie!"

"Ok If only they did turkeys. But it got 1 star. I dont know where to start. Let me start with the Sound on it. They could have done alot better if they left all the music out. The music was like what the hell does this song have to do with anything yet tattoos.
Now the artistic view on this dumpumentarie ok. I felt like who ever was in charge wanted to do some sort of cool effects on the movie. So on alot of the parts it has this like this red target thing scrolling the screen and words scrolling at the same time. It got annoying.
What this is about. Ok if your looking for something that teaches of Tattoo or the History this is not it. You have a Guy thats wanting a Haunted house and is pissed because he is not accepted as an artist for his work. All I can say is if your an Artist and concerned of peoples thoughts then look and become a model not the actual artist.
It basically covers only New York tattoo shops.
