Directed by Nicholas Luciano

Inside a tattoo shop in Los Angeles, Roksana (Kimia Behpoornia) at age 30 is about to get her very first tattoo with the help of her supportive friend Nico. When Nico decides he also wants to get a tattoo, the two decide to contact their parents to let them know what they're doing and it does not go well. Blending a cast of professional actors and non-actors, Lunch Tattoo comedically explores what happens when a Queer first-generation Iranian American, and a repressed son of a religious mother and father, go against their parents' wishes in an effort to break an ancestral pattern by getting their first ink.
