The story of tattoo artist Zhuo Dan Ting

“Ink & Needles” is a personal, casual, dreamy, intimate, and away from stereotypes short film/micro-documentary about the daily life of the renowned Chinese tattoo artist Zhuo Dan Ting.

When Ting emigrated from the Hubei province to Shanghai, the tattoo culture was still a taboo in China, only associated with gangs and jail time. Her perseverance and strong character made her one of the most respected Chinese tattoo artists and an icon of the Chinese tattoo culture.
