Welcome to Tattooland where the body is a canvas. Relive the history of the ink art form's transformation from generic stencils to contemporary freestyle masterpieces. Tattoo legends—including actor Danny Trejo and tattoo artist turned designer Ed Hardy—spill the chronicles of the “ink revolution” at the height of its metamorphosis in East Los Angeles. The documentary covers a number of milestones such as the introduction of the ink gun as well as a number of more taboo topics, like the influence of black-and-gray-style prison works on professional “photo real” artistry today. Thu 7 p.m.
