NEW YORK, N.Y., Sept. 26, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The worldwide phenomenon of ink-on-flesh will be the subject of the NewFilmmakers New York screening of "Tattoo Nation" on Monday, October 6, 2014 at 6 p.m. The indie feature film's director, Eric Schwartz, will appear after the screening for a Q&A session.

Schwartz, a sculptor and photographer, became a film director after becoming fascinated by the growing tattoo phenomenon. "The stories people told me about their tattoos during photo sessions were fascinating and as I began compiling them it grew into an entire film about the artists and the people who are their living canvasses."

Today, it is estimated that 45 million Americans have tattoos and "Tattoo Nation" is emerging as the definitive look at how "ink" went from underground and illegal just a few years ago to mass acceptance and the status of art.

The film has garnered rave reviews when screened at film festivals around the country and director Schwartz has appeared with the film at sold-out events on college campuses and museums.

"The reactions of people who come up to me after the screenings are very gratifying," Schwartz states. "Those who are into tattoo art are excited about seeing the history and the beauty of it handled in such a respectful manner. And I also hear from parents who now say they have a better understanding of why their kids are into tattoos."

NewFilmmakers New York screenings take place at 32 Second Ave. (at 2nd Street) in the East Village. Tickets are $6.
