This Discovery Channel reality series takes viewers inside their world. It's a glimpse into the stories behind the often elaborate body art and the personalities who dream of making their bodies their canvases.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show is pro-body art and doesn't spend a lot of time talking about the risks of getting a tattoo. Also, a lot of the parlor's clients get tattoos to memorialize deceased loved ones. Some of their stories are bittersweet, and younger viewers might find them upsetting. In one episode, for example, a couple talks about their baby who died two hours after birth.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


The tattoo process is shown; no blood, but the needle-phobic may want to tune out.


"F--k" is bleeped but still recognizable. Other mild language.

Social Behavior

The artists are caring and solicitous of their clients, and the patrons are often endearing in their desire for body art.
