From Artemus Jenkins and acclaimed tattoo artist Miya Bailey comes the documentary film, Color Outside the Lines: A Tattoo Documentary. Ah, a topic close to my heart! From their kickstarter page:

The film is the brainchild of one of the world's most widely recognized black tattoo artists; Miya Bailey. For over 5 years the idea has always been in his head to create a film that not only sheds light on the artform, but also allows the artform to be represented in the right way. There are a lot of stigmas attached to black tattoo artists and their side of the culture; ranging from a lack of creativity to overall poor quality of work. This in turn has lead to artists from other backgrounds and those in the black community choosing to take their business elsewhere in search of quality work.

Color Outside the Lines creators go on to state their purpose behind making this film:

The primary purpose here is education, basically if people knew better they would do better. There are dozens of black artists who are trained and highly skilled in any form of tattooing one could ask for. Once people watch this film we really want them to have a better understanding of their options and a deeper appreciation for the art form.

Although the production has reached its fundraising goal, you can still donate to this film's fund on their kickstarter page, HERE. You'll also find more information on Color Outside the Lines...as well as some background the producers and director.

I love ink, and being that ink is my family's business -- it's great to see a documentary like this being made. Check it out!

H/T to Afropunk.com for putting me on to this doc.

Until next time
