A week before election day in Canada, feisty artists from a tattoo shop by the name of MTL Tattoo summoned their fellow Canadians, politicians Stephen Harper, Tom Mulcair, Justin Trudeau and Gilles Duceppe to take a step further in solidifying their campaign promises.

“It’s election time again, we hear many big promises but what’s gonna happen when one will be elected?” That's the question MTL Tattoo has for the men on the race.

As part of the federal election, MTL Tattoo invited the four Canadian running politicians to come collect their free tattoos. Sounds like a sweet deal, alright. But there's a catch. The tattoos MTL will be offering them are the same promises they included in one of their main platforms.

“Where I work, at MTL Tattoo, we tattooed quite many politicians, lawyers and businessman. It seems that they always want to hide their tattoo or put it somewhere ‘discreet’,” shares a tattoo artist from MTL Tattoo.

“I understand. But when it comes to promises that you make for a whole nation, there’s nothing to hide there,” he adds.

Advertisement agency DentsuBos helped out in making this video possible to get the message out there.
