Beneath the Ink is a 13-part tv documentary series that champions the modern-day tattoo artist while unlocking age-old stigmas that are commonly associated with the tattoo industry.
Many tv shows focusing on the tattoo industry focus on drama and eccentricity of the people getting tattooed and less on the tattoo artists and their art. Our aim is to provide a platform for some of Sydney’s most talented and sought-after tattoo artists.
We gain insight into each artist as people; the varied social stigmas they encounter daily, male versus female tattoo artists and how to build a respected career within the tattoo industry. We highlight the integrity with which they practice their art and their process while hearing some of their heartfelt and inspiring stories.
We learn how they emerged to be where they are today within the ever-changing landscape of tattoo history and culture.
Without focusing too heavily on the politics we dive deep into a fiercely competitive industry learning what it takes to rise to the top and become one of the best in the business.
