Tattoo Nation - Boston Premiere!
April 4 - April 5, 2013
For years people saw tattoos as a sign of rebellion. A middle finger salute to the rest of the world. Outlaw bikers got tattoos. Sailors on leave in Singapore got tattoos. Lifers in the joint got tattoos. But now in the United States one out of every three adults under forty has a tattoo! So what happened? How did tattoo go from something that was put on you to an expression that comes from within you? Tattoo Nation tells the story of a few people who helped transform the world of tattoo, and the way we think about tattoos, forever. Helmed by Executive Producer/Director Eric Schwartz and Producer John Corry (FORKS OVER KNIVES, THE COLOR OF WAR, THE RUNDOWN, SWORN TO SECRECY, THE LONG MARCH), TATTOO NATION features the world’s top tattoo artists and clients as they tell the story of how the uniquely Chicano “black and grey” tattoo style helped redefine tattoo as a legitimate art form.
