Sacred Skin Documentary Trailer from Maellyn Macintosh on Vimeo.


Tattooing, piercing, scarification, body shaping and pain rituals have been used for centuries by communities for many reasons. In "Sacred Skin" friends Maellyn Macintosh and Andy Pinkney travel across the world to find the last communities who still use body modification as part of their culture, to document the fascinating stories behind these practices before they die out.
