The Tattooist follows the dark obsessions of a tattooist whose studio is acclaimed for its exceptional and intricately crafted tattoos. Those who receive his prized masterpiece are drugged, imprisoned, and then forced to fight their fears in a race against the clock to escape. Can they escape or will they become victims of The Tattooist?

Wang Yanhu plays The Tattooist with his victims including Lu Li, Myra Mala, Chase Lichtenberg, Simon Shiyamba, Mayela Magrou, and Dan Litza.

The 80-second film has won some accolades including Canada’s Bloody Horror International Film Festival, Horrorhaus Film Festival in LA, Canada’s Terror in the Bay Film Festival and multiple wins at Diabolical Horror Film Festival. It is still making the rounds at horror film festivals.
