Tattooed Under Fire Film Features Fort Hood Soldiers
11:46 AM


All of us at Needles & Sins are deeply saddened by yesterday's Fort Hood tragedy where an Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and wounded 30 others on the Texas base.

Fort Hood -- the largest US military facility in the world -- is a major center for soldiers being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, and also houses the Army's Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program, which helps soldiers deal with post-traumatic stress when they return. In both cases, deployment and return home, soldiers work out heavy issues, and many seek tattooing as a way to express them or even see the process as therapy.

Tattooed Under Fire is film that documents the young men and women at Fort Hood who seek solace at the tattoo studio, confessing fears, expressing anger, sharing secrets, and relaying personal war stories.

The shows begins airing across the country next week, and while created long before yesterday's shooting, may nevertheless offer some insight into the tragedy.
