You Won't Regret That Tattoo by john cheng

A great documentary that explores the memories behind tattoos of an older generation that really challenges the idea that ink is something we'll regret later down the line. Moreover, the film really takes you to a place of intimacy. You get to hear the stories behind some of the tattoos these people have gotten and the film also forces you to think twice before you judge a book by its cover. There is most likely a reason behind that tattoo, why not take the time to hear the story behind it?

'You Wont Regret That Tattoo' is a short documentary that explores the meanings and memories behind the tattoos of an older generation, and challenges the belief that ink is something we will come to regret.

Rethink Homelessness by john cheng

How do we explain homelessness to children? Have you ever thought about it? Do you tell them that it's because they're bad people? Do you tell them that it's because they didn't go to school and get an education? That they're all crazy? How many assumptions have we made about people that we have never talked to? How often do we really think about their stories and the hardships that they have gone through? Are you really as nice and compassionate as you think you are? I'm definitely guilty of this and everyday I hope that I can grow to be more compassionate and understanding.

Artist: Thomas Doyle by john cheng

Located in a small suburb near New York City lives Thomas Doyle, who makes miniature sculptures that give a peek into the interesting lives of his tiny characters. The sculptures may be very tiny, but the very fact that they are created in that context makes you want to take a closer look at what seemingly looks like an ordinary situation... or is it?
