Paris' top tattoo artist brings his body art to town

In today’s show we meet the man responsible for the body art gracing the biceps of stars like Jean-Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. Tattoo artist Tin-Tin chats to us about the international tattoo fair he’s putting on in Paris and how the perception of body art has evolved over the years.
