Trailer: Tattoo Documentary Starring Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons


As tattoo culture grows ever more widespread, we’ve seen ink devoted to all sorts of artistic subject matter, from indie comics to song lyrics. And it appears that we at Flavorpill are not the only ones who have noticed the intersection between high art and body art. In the new documentary Skin, filmmaker Ryan Hope enlists such artists as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Richard Prince in what is described as a “dark, stylish examination of tattoo culture as high art.” The glacially paced trailer doesn’t give away much of what’s in store for viewers, but the visuals sure are intriguing. Watch it after the jump.
