The art of ink

Chocolate Films produced this silent journey film, which explores the rich history of tattooing in London, giving the viewer a look behind the scenes at four contemporary London tattoo studios, documenting everything that happens within the studio from entering into each to tattooing taking place.  The film was on display at the Museum of London’s Tattoo London exhibition from January – May 2016.

Getting under the skin 

Shot from the point of view of the viewer, this film contains extensive use of a camera mounted on a gimbal to get the fluid movement of the journey. With the only sound in the film being that of the tattoo gun, you really feel like you are sitting in the chair!
