Reelz has acquired the U.S. rights to tattoo documentary “The Illustrated Man” from entertainment and media music agency Mibe Music.
Directed by photographer and filmmaker Sophy Holland, the feature-length documentary captures the evolution of tattoos from their historical associations with criminals and sailors to the art form’s adoption by mainstream culture and the rise of tattoo fashion.
Featured in the film are interviews with celebrity and fashion icons including Dave Navarro, Rocky Rakovic, Jason Santore, Ricki Hall, and the late Rico “Zombie Boy” Genest.
“The Illustrated Man” premieres September 28 on Reelz.
