Eastern Promises - Also prison style fake tattoos but from Russia. Nikolai's (Viggo Mortensen) tattoos where intricately designed to tell the life of a Russian gangster each image being a sort of badge showing his rank in the Russian under world. There where 37 individual fake tattoos designed for Eastern Promises, from larger back pieces to small detailed finger tattoos. The tattooed images while appearing religious in nature are actually symbolic of a criminal lifestyle. Eastern promises uses the fake tattoos as a plot vehicle and the story could not be told without the tattoos.
American History X - Arguable the most powerful scene in the movie takes place as Derek Vineyard (Edward Nortan) pulls his shirt down showing the swastika tattoo on his chest and spouting "see that..that means not welcome" a scene that could not have taken place without the fake tattoo. The charterer has several upper body tattoos all nicely done. The tattoos are well done and look very realistic with over ten separate pieces designed and applied.
