A stylish short about a hand-poke tattoo artist from Brooklyn.

A hand-poke tattoo artist reflects on her unique style of inking. Her work is a “meticulously placed wound,” one that will age with the recipient for years to come. Eschewing machines for her painstaking process, prick by prick she emblazons signature figures on limbs and torsos—her latest undertaking, a full back. These are the personal expressions of an artist who accepts the pressure of her work being with her client forever, who also relishes the thought of it being on display for the world to see.
