Cast: Ariana, Chloe, Charlie, Alyssa Allure, Angelica Sin, Porsche Lynn, Kiss, Emily Hill, Herschel Savage, John Decker, Dick Nasty, and Frank Towers in sexual roles, and Solveig, Rampart, and Allysin Chaynes in non-sex roles
Initial Expectations: Iíve heard mediocre things about Tattoo, but with the cast I canít help but have some decent expectations.
Initial Reaction: Itís not great, but the variety of the scenes take it much further than I expected.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a variety of scenes and something a little harder than the normal couples feature.
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting extremely soft and romantic porno
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects leave more than a little to be desired. The audio is pretty well balanced and clear, but the video has more than a little grain. It almost looks like a second or third generation VHS copy.
Music: The music is soft and sexy feeling, and really helps out the scenes. It ranges from nicely balanced with the rest of the audio to being way too loud.
Disc Problems / Complaints: Thereís no time stamp here, which is really rare for Adam & Eve. This is one of Adam & Eveís first DVD releases, so Iím not going to complain about it much since theyíre shown that they can learn!
Menus: The menus are extremely basic, some of which is due to this being one of Adam & Eveís earliest DVD releases. The main menu is an ugly looking still picture, while the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a still of each chapter and a chapter number.
The Feature: Years ago, talented artist John Decker was enthralled by the tattooed lady at the circus. It convinced him to let the skin be his canvas, and he never forgot where his inspiration came from. Years later, Ariana, the tattooed lady has returned, and now others see the amazing art on her skin which magically transports people into the world within each tattoo.
Things start out with John Decker and Chloe. He initially turns her down, but finally gives in and lets Chloe suck his cock. John lets his tongue run over Chloeís entire body and gives her nipples a few good hard bites before picking her up and flipping her over so he can eat her pussy while she continues to suck his cock. Chloe gives him a few more sucks before laying back on the tattoo chair with her legs in the air to make it nice and easy for John to fuck her twat. Chloe moves on to ride Johnís cock, but does lay back for him to fuck her ass and play with her pussy. John finishes things up by blasting Chloeís stomach with his ball butter.
Itís a pretty good scene and has good chemistry, but the music doesnít seem to fit it right. The music is slow and sensual, and with performers as intense as Chloe and John, the slow and sensual music didnít seem to fit right. Chloe and John are just that here, and it makes a great start for the feature while also knocking out some of that thought of Adam & Eve being just soft and mushy couples features.
Angelica Sin and Frank Towers get it on in the second scene after heís transported into the medieval world of Amazon warrior Angelica. After some bad sword fighting, Angelica slips on a banana peel and Frank wins the duel. He refuses to kill her, so she lets him know that his body is hers. He tries turning her down but she lays down the law and lets him know that she really wants his other sword. Angelica sucks and strokes Frankís skin sword, and even allows him to reciprocate a little as they sixty-nine. Angelica climbs up to ride Frank and play with her ass a little before letting hum pump her from behind. He spanks her ass a few times and finally pops on her ass.
This is an okay scene. It starts off nicely with some great oral action, but I was a little disappointed that it didnít have any anal with how Angelica was looking like she wanted it. She puts some nice energy into it, but it just never gets as hot as it feels like it could get.
Charlie and Kiss get busy in the third scene after Kiss finds herself transported to a world where Charlie appears to be a princess. They strip down and share a strawberry on Charlieís bed, as well as the fruits of the flesh as Charlie lets her tongue explore Kissí fruited plains and honey pot. Kiss finishes things up and returns the favor kissing Charlieís bald beaver and then parting it with a strap-on.
Thereís some great energy here, and once again the scene doesnít go with the soft and laid back sex that so many people think of Adam & Eve for. Thereís some hair pulling and spanking, and the intensity between the girls really helps to make this scene a winner.
Ringleader Herschel Savage finds himself drawn into the jungle by Emily Hill in the fourth scene. They exchange oral favors before Emily climbs up to ride Herschel cowgirl style. They change things around to get in a bit of missionary work before Herschel finally pops on her stomach.
This scene didnít do too much for me. Everything about it seemed very average, and the camera work didnít impress me too much as I thought it kept too much hidden. Keep the remote handy for this one.
The appropriately named Dick Nasty appears in the next scene with Alyssa Allure when theyíre drawn in by Porsche Lynn. Alyssa and Dick start out warming up Porsche from the front and back with their tongues before the girls lower themselves to suck Dick Nastyís cock. Dick moves on to fuck Porsche first, and then let her play with his ass as Alyssa rides his cock. Porsche returns with a strap-on, and first fucks Dickís ass before moving it up to Alyssaís ass to give her the double penetration after she begs for it. Alyssa finishes things taking a decent pop in her mouth and then letting it drip out so Porsche can see it.
Despite having Dick Nasty, itís a pretty hot scene. Everybody seems to be well into it, which almost always makes a scene great. I love the nastier feel of this scene, including Porsche fucking Dickís ass. Alyssa can be a little annoying at time, but I still really like this scene!
Finally, Ariana and John Decker get it on. John lets his tongue run from Arianaís ass up and around her pierced pussy before she mouths his manhood. Ariana climbs up to ride John cowgirl style before letting him fuck her from behind. Finally, John pokes Arianaís pussy missionary style before popping from her stomach up to her face and letting Ariana lick it up.
This is a pretty good scene to finish things up with. John and Ariana have great chemistry together, and donít hold back on the energy either. The only problem with the scene is that camera work, which seems a bit soft and artistic and loses some of the intensity of the scene.
Tattoo is a decent adult feature. The storyline is simple, and works even better than it might due to some special effects which I think were pretty top notch for adult films when Tattoo was made. It also works great to bring in a wide range of locations and styles of scenes. I really like how much of the sex got nastier than people think of for Adam & Eve, such as Porsche Lynn fucking Dick Nasty up the ass. The biggest problem with the feature is that the camera work often gets a little soft, and tries hard to hide some of the action rather than showing just how far itís going. I guess this works good for a couples feature, but it does leave some of the scenes with a feeling of untapped potential. Tattoo is a good adult feature with a nice variety.
Themes: Straight, anal, spanking, group, lesbian, toys, and male anal penetration
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
Overall: Currently, Adam & Eve DVDs can be found online for between $7 and $25, with this line of DVDs often being available for around $10. The low end is pretty fair here. The movie has a nice variety of creative sex, but the technical aspects are weak and thereís no extras.
Note to Adam & Eve: Thank you for keeping this one low priced!
