A film that piqued my early interest in tattoos

My first interest in tattoos began in the early nineties.  In my curiosity I rented out a film that was already ten years old - "Tattoo" with Bruce Dern in which he plays a somewhat crazed tattooist who decides to drug a a beautiful woman and then while she is unconscious covers her with tattoos.  In my distant memory it was a thriller with a very kinky approach to tattoos.  I found it titillating and troubling at the same time.  I remember that my first wife was very unimpressed by my fascination with the film.
This was not a great film, even if the idea behind it was, but whereas today tattoos are ubiquitous and so they are in films too, back then this was a truly unusual theme.
