Signatures of the Soul

United States, 1984


Counter-cultural icon Peter Fonda takes us on a comprehensive journey through the world of tattooing. From early tribal origins and eastern influences, right through to adoption in the mainstream and gradual acceptance as an art form, tattooing has been elevated to both art and an intense form of self-expression.
