Steve Burton’s project, called ‘Skin Deep’, attempts to change the mindset people have with regards to former gang members. By showing us what these ex-gang members might look like without their tattoos, Burton hopes to change the minds and thoughts of people who judge others with tattoos.

The idea came to Burton after witnessing many of his own friends go through the process of removing their tattoos. Burton hopes that the upcoming book will probe into how people with tattoos are stigmatized.
