Mad for Ink?

Duration: 13:51

Tattoos are thought to be more popular than ever, but why? Is it the influence of inked celebrities, a growing need to feel individual, or have they simply become easier to get? Reporters Adina Campbell and Anthony Baxter meet self-confessed tattoo addict Philippa, who tattoos herself and her mates, and follow Sarah Jayne as she gets her first tattoo. They also visit a tattoo convention to meet those with more extreme designs, and take a look at the growing concerns of unlicensed artists and online tattoo kits.
