A body covered in meaningful, and useful to the plot, tattoos is not a first… think Prison Break. But there are significant differences. In Blindspot they are on a woman who has no memory, a person who is rediscovering herself — and it is likely a safe assumption each week she will uncover the meaning of another one of the marks on her body.
In the first episode not 1 but 3 of the tattoos were revealed to have meaning, we also discovered that there was a particularly heavily inked area that was covering up a tattoo she had before… whatever life-changing event happened to leave her with no memory and a body covered like a treasure map full of clues.
With the “back 9” episodes having been ordered to script, it looks like we can safely hope for a complete first season of Blindspot, which hopefully means a satisfying arc, with a few answers along the way.
