IT’S been three months since we had spoken to Tattoo John.
We had heard that he was attempting to dry out, so the last thing he needed was our camera poking its nose in.
We’re in no doubt that the story of John is a story going nowhere – and there’s a fine line between reporting and simple voyeurism.
With John there’s also a contrast between his honest self reflection and the relationship he has with the police. The John you see here is a million miles from the one the police have to cope with in the cells.
