Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
First-time filmmaker Richard W. Bean directed and produced this independent romantic comedy that he also co-wrote with Gregg Saccon. Megan Edwards stars as Sara, a straight-laced school teacher who suddenly finds her life turned upside-down on show-and-tell day, when one of her students brings in freewheeling tattoo artist Virgil (Virgil Mignanelli). At first Sara is averse to Virgil, but gradually she can't get him out of her head, and it begins to disrupt her relationship with her boyfriend. Tattoo: A Love Story had its premiere at the 2002 Florida Film Festival where it won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award.
