TATTOO NATION – DVD and Stream Available May 9th


Tattoo Nation is the real story about how ink evolved in southern California in the 1970’s. The feature-length documentary film follows three pioneers – Charlie Cartwright, Jack Rudy and Freddy Negrete and shows how they revolutionized the world of tattooing.

Back in the day, tattoos were a sign of rebellion and represented a tough and misunderstood connotations about the person. Today tattoos have become accessible to all and represent anything the canvas wants to show about their personalities and life story. Tattoo Nation highlights tattoo history but pays special attention to the history of SoCal’s “Black and Gray” style tattooing. The film is still being release in various cities and you can pre-order the DVD and purchase the stream here: http://tattoonation.com/

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. This is the true story of the ink revolution.
