IBAS-VOD-Still_2A

I just received word that Ink, Blood and Spirit, a documentary on Little Swastika whose work has been featured on ModBlog in the past, is available on-demand as an online download.  Here’s what the filmmakers had to say about it:

A biographical portrait of the self-taught tattooer and artist Marc ”Little Swastika” Lu, whose work is well known worldwide. Filmed in december of 2013 at Marc’s studio and gallery – Psyland – located in the small village of Tengen in southern Germany. The main focus is Marc’s life story with topics such as inspiration, religion, drugs and body modification.

The film has screened in twelve countries, has been nominated for best documentary and has been officially selected to several film festivals.

If you’d like to watch the trailer or rent the film, it costs a whopping $1.99, click here.

 I would imagine that healing a missing fingernail isn’t the easiest thing in the world, so the fact that more ink didn’t fall out of this is pretty neat. I can clearly tell what it is, and I wonder if it will hold up as well (or better) than a conventional tattoo.
