Storyline

Sara is a "straight arrow", no nonsense school teacher who has earned the respect of her family, friends, colleagues and community. She frowns on anything that is deviant, until she meets Virgil, a tatoo artist who prefers watching romantic movies to sleeping around. As their friendship turns to romance, Sara finds herself questioning her life's decisions, including her future with her fiance, Brett, and whether she should continue her current life or break free from her bonds to find her true self.

Quotes

Virgil: [explaining why he gets tattoos] It's for different reasons. Sometimes it's a person I've met, or a place I've been. Sometimes it's just some cool thing I saw on the wall.
Sara: So... nouns, basically.

A courageous movie about ordinary people/influence on others
18 February 2004 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

Tattoo: A Love Story is a courageous independent film that explores the lives of ordinary working people and how they influence each other. Richard Bean is a real up-and-coming director. I'd like to see him interpret a Kurt Vonnegut story in the cinema medium
