Underneath The Ink is a feature length documentary that seeks to discover the psychological reasons why North Americans get tattoos. The filmmakers dig deep into the psyche of tattooed individuals who get tattoos and the consequences they face by getting permanent ink. Tattoos have been part of human history for thousands of years and with it came different perceptions about tattoos, some good and some bad, but always fascinating. Behind the eyes of tattooed people we get a first hand look into the world of modern tattooing and their amazing stories.
There are many reasons why people get tattoos so, the filmmakers took it upon themselves to conduct a study to better understand our reasons for getting a tattoo. If you or know someone with a tattoo, we highly encourage them to fill out the questionnaire at underneaththeink.com/tattoo-study.
