Beautiful movie about a young woman obsessed with painting skin with calligraphic images. What is the title of this film?

I've found the name of the movie: The Pillow Book, Peter Greenaway.

If you're into the tattoo thing, there's a real Japanese film that deals with the topic of a Japanese woman tattooing (is that a proper verb) all of her body. The English title is "Tattoo" and I have seen it at video stores in the US.

The Pillow Book is right.Not Greenaway's best, i thought(i much prefer The Draughtsman's Contract) but the book it refers to (though the film is completely different)is The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, a diary of a court lady's life in 10th/11th century Japan(i can't remember the exact dates and i've lent the book out).It is wonderful, one of my favourites, if anyone's interested!
