We filmed this documentary on Adrian Stacey as a look inside the mind of an amazing tattoo artist. The idea was to move away from popular TV style documentaries, so we removed any focus on the subject being tattooed and focused on the person creating the tattoos.  With the film, we created photography to compliment it and both will be shown as an installation at Nine Boyce Street tattoo studio in the near future.

The use of unique lighting styles and trick photography helped to create a previously unseen style to this genre.

We filmed in Nine Boyce Street, the studio Ade works out of and also filmed some studio work in Lolly Film studios in Brighton.
