Today's Worlds > Ethnology

Tattoos: The Way of the Ink

A 53' & 70' documentary directed in 2011 by Pamela Valente, Pascal Bagot

Tattoos: The Way of the Ink, can be interpreted on several levels.

It's a film about art that emphasizes the aesthetic of Irezumi designs.

Japanese tattoo art inscribes true works of art on human skin.
The film can also be interpreted as addressing one of the big questions in Japanese society today: the balance between tradition and modernity.

Tattooed Japanese youth seem to be more interested in western style than in Pacific tribal designs.

Each year, there are less and less individuals learning the art of Japanese tattoo.
Will traditional Japanese tattoo art turn a page in its history?
