Tattooed people and their families will be the focus of a documentary due to air on the BBC iPlayer later this month.
The programme, called Tattooing the Body, will be a three-part series, exploring how the human body can be altered to make you more attractive.
The programme will also explore the challenges posed by tattoos in today’s society.
It will feature some of the world’s top tattooists, including Hairy Girl Tattoo, Sydney tattooist Tony Perez, The Tattooers’ Tattoo Studio, Bristol Tattoo and The Body tattoo.
As well as highlighting the importance of tattooing in our culture, the programme will include the stories of some of Australia’s best tattoo artists and the tattoos that are being made on their bodies.
In the first part of the programme, Tony Perez will reveal how he has worked with celebrities like Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Ariana Grande.
The story will also see Perez revealing the origins of his tattoos.
Tony will also share stories of his first tattoos, and reveal how his family have been inspired by the work of the tattoo artists he has met.
“This is a beautiful part of my life and my family have helped me through it,” Tony Perez said.
“It’s been amazing, and a wonderful experience.
I’ve had so many incredible people come up to me and ask me how I got my tattoos.
It’s all been incredibly inspiring.”
In the second part of Tattooing the Body, Holly Wood and her husband Dave will share their own journey of finding the perfect tattoo.
They say it’s about finding your own body image.
“We’ve had tattoos from everything from people who were on the moon to our children, but we’ve always found the perfect one,” Holly Wood said.
“We started to really work with the artist and have really created something out of that.”
Hollywood actress Rosario Dawson, who has tattooed at least 40 times, says the experience has been a life-changing experience.
“I’ve learned so much,” Rosario Dawson said.
She added that the journey was a reminder to live the way you want to live and she is grateful for her tattoos.
“When you do something for the right reasons, you never want to be disappointed,” Rosary said.
“It’s a reflection of the things I’m trying to express to myself.”
The show Tart-Tattoos will be shown on BBC One on Saturday 18 March at 8:30pm and will also be available on BBC iPlayer.
