I thought that the Tattooist was quite a good horror movie. It was about an American tattoo artist called Jake Sawyer, who travels the world, exploring different ethnic themes in his tattoo designs. At a tattoo expert in Singapore, he gets his first glimpse at the exotic world of traditional Samoan tattoo (tatau), and, in a thoughtless act, unwittingly unleashes a powerful angry spirit. In his journey into Pacific mysticism, Jake must find a way to save his new love, Sina and recover his own soul. This ended up being a good horror film and i would strongly recommended it to viewers. And it also gave a good look into how Samoan tattoos are made.

Quite a good horror movie...Reviewed byMovieGuy01Vote: 5/10
This movie no doubt one of the best movies I know of. It got my attention and kept it all the way to the end. The movie also follows my ethnic background, however some of the wordplay and acting gets a little awkward and mediocre at times. Overall though, the movie in itself was very addictive and mind-boggling. It was a movie that I would watch forever.
Sometimes I would get annoyed with the history behind the tattoos and what they meant, and other etc as such, but in general there was nothing extremely painful about watching the movie. It has kept the friends of mine that have watched it interested as well. Not perfection, but not terrible either.
I am guessing that a lot of the low ratings have more to do with the fact that this movie does not immediately start splattering the audience with buckets of blood and splitting your ears with crescendoing screams.
This movie is NOT following the normal Hollywood script. There's no "Oh yeah-there's the Monster" There's no parade of "Oh Yeah, the A-hole is gonna get it"
This is Horror from the Suspense side of the formula. It's a story of a Guy who does something wrong in the pursuit of his art. And something is unleashed in return. Consequences and collisions occur in the context of a different continent and its own cultures and messy histories.
No, it's not a DEEP movie, but it's an interesting departure from the usual fare. Nor is it a non-stop splatterfest.
Watch this when you're in the right mood-- somewhere in the middle where you just want a good movie to fill the time and give you a story from a different place besides Hollywood.
