About Skindigenous

Skindigenous explores one of the oldest art form and its relationship to Indigenous culture; tattooing. For millennia, humans have been marking their bodies with images and symbols giving visible form to what they hold sacred. Today, Indigenous artists around the world continue to practice this ancient art using their own techniques and traditions. For these artists, tattooing is an essential part of their cultural identity, as well as a vehicle for connecting with nature, the ancestors, and the spiritual world.

Each episode of Skindigenous focuses a master tattoo artist who reveal the secrets of their art. The master’s process of creating a new tattoo piece, and the origins and purpose to this form of body art in their culture will also be explored.
