    Im not too sure why tattoos need a culture. Ive got plenty but dont consider myself a part of the culture. I just have certain memories that I choose to hold on too.

    Though, I have never gotten or given myself a tattoo that I decided while under the influence of anything. ALL of my tattoos, self drawn or not, have some type of inspiration motivation.

    Thing is, tattoos are also not as permanent as they used to be, especially if you got one after they stopped using heavy metals in the inks. Lasers are the ultimate eraser, but goddamn do they hurt WAY more than the tattoo.

    That`s not a very short documentary. I`ve only got 1 tattoo, but do not consider anyone with a tattoo in a different «culture» than any other person.

    you probably have a car too...doesnt mean you`re part of car culture. Tattoos have a culture because some people have a passion for them that goes much further beyond simple memories and inspiration. Anything that has a group of people who share a passion will create a sub culture.

    This film was produced at the same time of the release of the new art/fashion magazine Garage. It has the vagina tattoo on the cover.

    This makes it seems like only alcoholics, drug addicts, criminals, outcasts, pretentious art students get tattoos.
