For years people saw tattoos as a sign of rebellion. A middle finger salute to the rest of the world. Outlaw bikers got tattoos. Sailors on leave in Singapore got tattoos. Lifers in the joint got tattoos. But now in the United States one out of every three adults under forty has a tattoo! So what happened? How did tattoos go from something that was put on you, to an expression that comes from within you? Tattoo Nation tells the story of how four artists, Charlie Cartwright, Jack Rudy, Ed Hardy and Freddy Negrete, helped transform the world of tattoo, and the way we think about tattoos, forever. Narrated by LA Ink's Corey Miller, and featuring the most incredible line up of artists and collectors ever assembled on film, TATTOO NATION tells the tale of how it all started when Charlie Cartwright and Jack Rudy boldly opened the first tattoo parlor, Good Time Charlie's, in the heart of East LA's Chicano community in 1975."
