My Tattoo Addiction
ABC2  |  March 6, 2013

No longer a taboo, for millions of people, having a tattoo is the closest they come to owning a unique work of art. Funny, eye watering, jaw dropping and uplifting, this documentary explores the world of tattoos; the people who do them, the people who have them and what they say about their lives, why they get them and what they feel about them. It's about the stories behind what gets printed on the skin. For many what starts as a drunken dare becomes a compulsion, with full arm, leg, chest, back and even head tattoos now far more popular than ever before. And on the flip side, as tattooing kits become cheaper and more accessible via the internet, more people are 'having a go' at tattooing themselves - with predictably varying results. And, when it all goes wrong, it's the professional tattooists' job to try to fix them.
