Karlmann, Albert and Herbert have shared a life-long passion for a life outside conventions – as Europe´s leading tattoo artists. A moving, funny, tongue-in-cheek portrait of three ninety-year-old friends who express their creativity in unique ways. Herbert, the prosperous entrepreneur living amongst postcard-like Swiss mountains. Karlmann, son of one of Northern Germany’s richest families. And Albert, the old-style sailor. Three lifelong friends who have devoted their lives to a common passion when this was seriously taboo: tattooing.
