Scottish independence: Do tattoos help shape what we believe in?

4 February 2014 Last updated at 07:22 GMT

Voters in Scotland will decide on their country's future when they go to the polls in the referendum on Scottish independence.

In the second of a series of documentaries ahead of the vote in September, broadcaster and journalist Stuart Cosgrove asks what it means to be Scottish.

He visits a tattoo parlour in Hamilton to examine what role identity will play.

The programme asks how identity, be it Scottish or British, will influence people's voting intentions.

Newly tattooed Gary says: "I'm getting a tattoo just to symbolise my feeling on my Britishness." Meanwhile Toni, sporting her new Saltire tattoo, says: "I feel more Scottish now I've got the Scottish flag tattooed on my skin."
