Summary

If you are an ink enthusiast, Tattoo Redo will be compelling and possibly inspirational, and if you’ve never had a tattoo before, then this series may make you feel grateful.

Netflix reality series Tattoo Redo season 1 was released on the streaming service on July 28, 2021.

Fortunately, I am one of the lucky ones that haven’t befallen to a bad tattoo decision; we’ve all seen the stories of the intoxicated on a dirty night-out who decide to head to a late-night tattoo parlor. Why are they even open at that time? Surely they know they are taking advantage of an individual who has had too many jaeger bombs. But then, some genuinely make a sober tattoo mistake; matching tattoos with their ex, a face of a person from an insignificant moment, or a friend that dared them to tattoo a p***s on their forearm.

Netflix’s Tattoo Redo is exactly what it means in the title; embarrassed, self-conscious people come on to the show to have their wronged tattoo covered up with a new design. But there’s a twist, the person who has joined them on the show, whether it be a best friend, a colleague, or a partner, decides what the cover-up should be. The horrifying becomes even more horrifying, but from a reality TV perspective, it is glorious.

Embracing highly skilled and insta-famous tattooists, Tattoo Redo goes through the entire process of the story, the cover-up design, and the result. It’s difficult not to hold your breath as the mirror is taken out, and the client sees what new tattoo they’ll be embracing for life. Will they hate it and subsequently break up with their partner? There’s a lot at stake, and it feels cruel and unwarranted (while warranted for the audience).

Tattoo Redo is a good commission by Netflix — they’ve obviously seen the success of Tattoo Fixers and saw this as a win. The production must be cheap, and with each chapter lasting 30 minutes apiece, it’s a breeze. The tattoos and the stories do most of the talking, meaning the format is easily consumable and binge-worthy. The reality series exposes the audience to the world of tattoos, the different styles, and the artists behind the ink etched onto our bodies.

If you are an ink enthusiast, Tattoo Redo will be compelling and possibly inspirational, and if you’ve never had a tattoo before, then this series may make you feel grateful.
