Indigenous tattoo artists from across Canada are reviving their ancestral traditions that were taken away during colonization. The practices were thought to be lost forever, and this revival reflects a reawakening of pride, culture and identity. As we travel across Canada, we learn about the significance of tattoos for different Indigenous cultures, why they disappeared, and why they are now being brought back to life.
