This is the second feature documentary from the Austin-based digital studio, which has a robust online following. The first was “The Meme Machine,” which dug up the human stories behind Internet memes. In “The Tattooist,” the heavily inked Geoff Ramsey (credited as Geoff Lazer Ramsey in “Red Vs. Blue”), explores the sub-culture of tattoos and takes a master class from a well known tattoo artist.
“The world of tattoos is kind of exploding right now,” says Ramsey in the trailer. “The medium is being pushed, and the spectrum of what a tattoo is and means has just gone crazy.” As part of his master class, Ramsey hopes one of his Rooster Teeth co-workers will let him test out his new skills on them.
“Luckily, Rooster Teeth — a company that started with essentially three or four idiots, is now a company with over 250 idiots,” he says as he goes looking for subjects.

“The Tattooist” comes out March 24th, on Rooster Teeth FIRST.
