This film delivers all you would expect, if you have any knowledge of Brandon Bond's lifestyle and philosophy in life. It is a fly on the wall type film, with a crew following him throughout 2006.
If you are only familiar with Brandon's tattoos, you will not be disappointed because you get to see some stunning examples of both Brandon's work and that of his many talented artists at the All or Nothing Studios. However this is NOT a tattoo video. It does cover many aspects of Brandon's life and his views on many things, from girl's kissing to firearms to his art.
You will see that his charisma and personality, coupled with buckets full of talent, make him a leader of men. You also get a clear understanding of why he is so successful in so many aspects of his life but you can also see why, as his wife says, he has so many enemies.
For those of you who write and object when Skin Deep shows nipples and a glimpse of genitals, this is not the film for you. It has clear adult content and those of you with older kids; I recommend you watch it first. The film is conveniently broken down into chapters so you can either dip in and out OR do what I did, open some beers, put my feet up and watch from start to finish. As a film it gives you access to excess. Any of you who shoot in this country will enjoy seeing Brandon having a day out with his guns, especially the difference in regulations. The thought of using a gun within a few hundred feet of a main road are so alien to us all now.
I found watching the film a roller-coaster ride. One minute taking in Brandon's commitment to tattooing, packing up and smoking and working 24/7, and the next watching him play the psycho kidnapper during role-play with the local SWOT team (all sporting his tattoos). Listening to him explaining why he hates some women and discussing what he ultimately wants to achieve. I must have changed opinion of him at least half a dozen times during the film. And maybe that is his charm.
