Marked, The: Complete Season 1
Travel to some of the most menacing places in the world for an inside look at modern-day societies whose ultimate symbols of acceptance are tattoos earned through unique rites of passage.
From outlaw bikers to hardcore prison gangs, History uncovers the culture and customs of these fringe societies, delving into the minds of its members as they explain what the mysterious ink decorating their bodies means on the street, inside prisons and to them personally. Tattoo artists and cultural experts explain the technique and history behind these "marks" and the groups they adorn, putting the experiences of the main characters into perspective, and detailing a world in which initiation rites, turf wars, and the fierce pride of belonging to an outlaw family are all part of the territory.
From prison and street gang marks to U.S. military tattoos, Marked: The Complete Season One unravels the meaning behind these secret symbols on 2 DVDs.
