Tattoo artists from all across Europe show off their body of work at the Sochi International Tattoo Festival in Russia. Artists drew a crowd at the three day event by inking new tattoos and other body art. Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood even made an appearance - on someone's chest. For most at the the festival, having just one tattoo seems somewhat taboo. SOUNDBITE: Aka Myshka, tattoo enthusiast, saying (Russian): "I have had tattoos done in many places. I have tattoos made by artists from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. I have had them done by twenty artists. So one could say I'm a collector." SOUNDBITE: Julia Chelipovich, tattoo enthusiast, saying (Russian): "It's kind of a hobby for me, let's say it like that. It's what I like to do, I get satisfaction this way. With every tattoo I satisfy some of my needs and I like it." So sit back, relax and enjoy - as these festival-goers attain lifelong satisfaction.
