Becoming a tattoo artist in prison

Channel 4

8 x 3′ 15″

Matt cut this online series, directed by award winner Ioana Mischie, which achieved a record number of views on Channel 4 online. This series is about the human stories behind tattoos that get covered up or changed, for all kinds of reasons, from wiping memories of an ex to creating a ‘new you’.
Brendan honed his tattooing skills in prison and made a new life for himself on the outside through his passion for ink. But today he’s the one under the needle, fixing his very first tattoo.
