Ink of Yam

Germany 2017 | 75 minutes | English, Hebrew, Arabic | Hebrew, English, Arabic subtitles

Poko Chaim and Daniel Bulitchev, two Russian tattoo artists, have created a unique space in Jerusalem, a tattoo studio open to everyone, regardless of religious or national background. Here, they eternalize the stories of the city’s inhabitants - the ink beneath their skin connects them all. The diverse customers offer intimate insights into their lives, their beliefs and their fears. There are moments when Poko and Daniel are almost like psychologists. To escape the constant sound of the needle, they take us on their big Harleys to the Tel Aviv coast and into the mountains surrounding Jerusalem.
