As fake as they may be, tattoos in film are more permanent than any ink on the body.
Never fading, never stretching, always keeping with the same message, color, and form. As long as there's TV, we can always go back to our most idolized inked characters.
From the classic Al Pacino scene in Scarface to the low-grade comedic scene in Dude Where's My Car?, Tastefully Offensive made the YouTube video, The Mark of an Actor: A Supercut of Tattoos in Film, to show the best ink work throughout filmography, going all the way back to 1955.
Snippets from 47 movies prove some of the most important, hidden messages of a film lies in the ink.
