'The Tattooist' follows the dark obsessions of a tattooist whose studio is acclaimed for its exceptional and intricately crafted tattoos. Those who receive his prized masterpiece are drugged, imprisoned, and then forced to fight their fears in a race against the clock to escape. Can they escape or will they become victims of The Tattooist?Written by
The Tattooist (2018) is a micro-short (or, let's say, a vignette lasting a little over 1 minute) which focuses on the titular Tattooist. As in the case of the director's previous short film, The Story of 90 Coins, I was again surprised at the complexity of a story that was conveyed in an extremely short time span. Michael Wong not only is able to compress meaningful tales, but he also has a great eye to detailed visuals. It is impossible to talk about this short without giving away the spoiler, so you need to check it out for yourselves. This one minute shall not go to waste! I sincerely hope that The Tattooist will be turned into a feature movie.
