tattoos 101
22 June 2013 | by (Calumet, Mich.) – See all my reviews

They believe that a lot of us are tuning in to the Prison Break series itself to see the tattoo -- which should give you some idea of how accurately they have us viewers pegged. But then they also imagine that "if he had the blueprints of the prison, the only way he could bring them in is on his body". Yeah, sure, that makes as fine sense as a hundred other details of the series'. But this review is for this short, not a review of the series' logic. And this short DOES give you some insight into where the TV series developers were coming from and how closely tied in to reality they were.

Are these peoples' ideas of art to be blueprints? No, not at all. As you'll see, what all these guys & gals see as art is tattoos. They're supposedly cramming as much data as possible onto the character's bod. So why is this simply an all-black tattoo instead of with lots of different colored inks, as I've seen on plenty of nude models? I'm afraid we do not get an answer to that.

But I sure did learn a lot more about tattoos than I knew before. And more about how tattoo artists look at things than I ever knew either. And more explanation of the designs that they're hiding the maps in than the series provides + various details of design changes.
