If horror is your thing, you should wait no more and watch Michael Wong’s micro-short film The Tattooist which is crafted with an unalloyed passion for the slasher movie buffs. The film conveys a deep dark secret behind a renowned Tattoo studio within minutes. The Tattooist is hyper-stylish, urban and morbid at the same time. Michael Wong’s quirky approach to reviving the horror genre is commendable throughout the film. In the era of instant gratification, this film serves as a perfect food for the mind-bending content hungry audience. It’s sleek, fast and beautifully shot.

From stunning performances from Troy's Team Action to gritty music by Found in the Attic, The Tattooist leaves no room for the critics to exploit its perfection. Currently making its round at the horror film festival circuit and has been winning a number of international accolades, Michael Wong’s The Tattooist is a winner at Canada's Terror in the Bay Film Festival, Horrorhaus Film Festival in LA, Canada's Bloody Horror International Film Festival, Diabolical Horror Film Festival, Calcutta International Cult Film Festival, to name a few.

The Director of ‘The Tattooist’ Michael Wong took up filmmaking, after spending 16 years as an ad agency art director and creative director. In the late 90s, he left his native Malaysia and arrived in China, where he's worked at such leading agencies as Ogilvy, TBWA, BBDO, Grey and Saatchi & Saatchi. His directorial debut short film ‘The Story of 90 Coins’ picked up 60+ accolades from international film festivals. His ad agency experience is highly visible in his work as he perfected the art of capturing the audience’s attention within seconds. The Tattooist looks like a trailer yet it feels complete, which probably makes it unique and praiseworthy.
