On the Road with Jacob Hanks: “Tattoo Nation,” the Movie

Boo-Boo-Negrete-his-farther-Freddy-negreta-and-Compton-David-Oropeza-300x199

By Jacob Hanks Reblogged from: http://tattooroadtrip.com/tattoo-nation-the-movie/ I am clearly not a film critic or member of the press, but I was fortunate enough to get invited to the private screening of the new film, “Tattoo Nation,” at the Arclight Theatre, in Hollywood, California. For a younger tattoo artist like me, it was a pretty big deal. If you have not heard of “Tattoo Nation,” it is a documentary, directed by Eric Schwartz and written by John Corry, about the “true story” of the black-and-gray tattoo revolution, and features several of the tattoo icons, many of whom I was exposed to, as a little boy, with my father, tattooing in Southern California. That is where the film takes place, when three unlikely tattooers—Jack Rudy, Good Time Charlie Cartwright andFreddy Negrete—came together to become the innovators of modern, fine-line, black-and-gray tattooing. The story, narrated by Corey Miller, addresses how the prison style that originated with young Mexican Americans has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon, giving rise to many new styles and pushing the limits of the popularity of tattooing as we know it today.

By Michelle Salemi (Original story appears at: http://variety.com/) Skin artwork was not a sign of rebellion but camaraderie at the L.A. preem of D&E’s doc “Tattoo Nation” on March 28. “There’s just such great soul in these tattoo artist, and then if you have the talent, pass it on!” tattoo artist Don Ed Hardy said before the Arclight screening. Actor Danny Trejo, whose tattoos include a family portrait of his children on his back, gets asked a lot about his ink: “People ask me if my tattoos have hindered my career.
