Skin Deep – Erasing the tattoos of former gang members

By erasing the tattoos of former gang members, the photographer Steven Burton wants to offer a new life to these repented gangsters, revealing a face forgotten for many years. Entitled Skin Deep, this project erases the prejudices and clichés displayed on their faces thanks to Photoshop, enabling them to rediscover a personality hidden behind the tattoos. This series of portraits will soon be published in a book, currently being funded on Kickstarter.
