A traumatized woman seeks penance and personal transformation through tattooing after surviving a devastating pregnancy. One night, drenched in booze and ink, her deepest fears threaten to consume her.

Words from the Press

"It haunted me quietly, almost like a shadow. It’s a disturbingly beautiful story with layers of emotion and a great female lead."
- PopHorror

“(INK’s) damp sound and grey visuals create a dread that is simultaneously touching and creepy.” 
-Rue Morgue

“(INK) messes with your head and leaves you dumbfounded, but begging for more” 
-Atomic Age Renegades

"Sometimes film is prose visualized — and sometimes it’s poetry. INK is an example of the latter."
-Morbidly Beautiful
