maybe they see tattoos as alternative culture.

Where the balls did you hear this?

Sure, a lot of older russians are conservative, because they've been living behind an iron curtain most of their lives, but the younger generation in Moscow (and only in Moscow) are familiar with the "alternative culture" of the west.

You're quite likely to see a typical metal-head at least once a day in Moscow.

Disclaimer: life in Moscow does not represent life anywhere else in Russia.

You don't get a tattoo in Russia because if you don't speak the language, you'll have trouble communicating what you want tattooed to the guy who'll be doing the job, and you'll end up going home with a penis etched on your face.

Perhaps because tattoos in Russia are associated very highly with organized crime? I couldn't tell you exactly.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

AKA

The publically owned, publically controlled, non corporate in any way, un-biased television network? You can be blamed for lack of common sense.

I think that tattoos were bad back in communist times, when did the dude get it done?

Then the only thing I can think of is that they disaprove of it because of criminal connotations. Maybe try google/actual russian dudes? I think you may be here at the wrong time for russians.

It's controlled by Points of View and anything else is a lie.

all the highrisen CEOs and executives in the BBC are either MPs or former MPs if im not mistaken or misinformed.

its paid for by the TV licensing fee, which is controlled by the government isnt it?
