Ryan Scafuro is a Brooklyn-based Director of Photography whose highly creative eye for narrative storytelling has earned him two Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow award for his cinematography.

In this short and elegant high-definition video, Scafuro takes us inside the comfortable Three Kings Tattoo parlor in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. It offers a glimpse into how the once taboo tattoo has transformed into widespread social acceptance, one needle-point of ink at a time, and sympathetically presents the artistic side of high-end tattoo making.
