One woman's story of looking for light in the dark black world of tattoo schools, reality TV and bloody ink. More
A small-town tattoo artist/single mother finds herself cast as the star of a reality TV show. She dreamt of her future as a tattoo celebrity with lucrative offers and million dollar endorsements. But reality for Lisa meant no endorsements, no flattering publicity and 50,000 angry tattoo artists threatened to kill her. Lisa was thrust into a brutal and vicious world that she wasn’t prepared for. She learned quickly that the colorful world of butterflies and fairy tattoos were just the superficial overlay concealing an underground culture knit together with insidious characters, violent threats and murky black ink. Experience Lisa’s journey from inking her first tattoo to launching a world-famous tattoo school chain that exploded with a nasty dose of reality TV. Meet Jeff, who just wants to stay sober and the zany and always unpredictable students and their struggles with self-doubt, drug abuse, suicide, and misspelled tattoos.
