Tattoo Reality Show? How about Real Tattoo History!

By sedano223
Written April 05, 2013
Definitely a must-see for tattooers and tattoo history buffs/enthusiasts. As a tattooer myself, I am constantly trying to learn more about the history of the craft. This movie did a great job in telling the story of West Coast Cholo style tattooing and its integration into professional tattooing. Real tattooers will recognize all the greats featured in the film, but it does a good job regardless if you know who is in the film or not. The work featured is top notch and super inspiring. I recommend every tattooer out there that has any type of respect for what they do to go see this movie and then buy the dvd when it comes out!
