    I don’t think Draco Malfoy walked into a tattoo parlour and got the Dark Mark inked onto his skin. I don’t think it’s supposed to look like a tattoo at all.

    Divergent one is cool. Similar to the work of Hanumantra, B.e.wooten, or Abusevtattoo. Check them out on instagram.

    I appreciate the guy @2:00 and what he said about Polynesian tribal tattoos. They have become just another tattoo trend and sooo many people get them not knowing where it originated from. If you insist on getting a Polynesian tribal tattoo(or any cultural tattoo) then at the very least, respect the culture. And if you don't know the culture, then maybe you shouldn't be getting the tattoo in the first place.

    To all the comments regarding “polynesian tattoos”
    OMG I KNOW! I hate it when non continental based Americans get American Traditional tattoos, its like, cmon, these are sacred traditional tattoos to white culture...god it makes me so angry when people dont view things by race and think they can just be “equals” to other humans on this planet. You and I are on the same page brother!
    What is really disgusting is when black people get traditional asian tattoos, it is like, cmon bro, you are black, you should only be getting tattoos of martin luther king and rap know, their history and culture...
    But I think the worst is when Mexicans get Sak Yant Traditional Thai tattoos THEY KNOW BETTER! They should only be getting Santa Muerte and catholic symbolism tattoos, you know because THATS THEIR CULTURE
    Ugghh, all of this cultural diversity makes me sick too bro...we are the same...

    Some of the tattoos in movies are meant not to look too clean or proffessionally made, others are, and others are there to be legible or to state a message. reviewing them is pointless unless you talk about their true meaning and place in that movie/context. Saying they are bad or good has nothing to do with what their purpose is in a movie imho.
    with that said, joker's tatts looke like those ones that you customise your character with in an online game, just look out of place and should be more weathered in my opinion so as to fit joker's character better( i mean that visually, i know the text has on him does that already, but some more attention to detail wouldn't hurt)

    The reason the Dark Mark (Harry Potter tattoo) was blurry was because it was in motion! They should have used a better shot or a promotional photo or something. Fail!

    I get that they are reviewing them from a professional and technical point of view, but you need some context... Jack Sparrow's tatoo was made in the 1600's, and Draco Malfoy's isn't just a tatoo he asked an artist for, it is a magical mark that burns when the Drak Lord summons it... I wouldn't mind to much for it to be blurry

    Joker's tattoos might be aesthetically pleasing (the artists here seemed to like some of them, anyway), but oh my god are they the dumbest, from a narrative perspective. Why show the audience that he's damaged when you could just put a 'Damaged' tattoo on him?
