DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, April 2019) A&E Network will premiere the new original unscripted series "Hero Ink" following the daily work at Prison Break Tattoos, a unique shop in Houston, TX that specializes in creating meaningful tattoos for first responders. Bringing together artists who have a connection to the world of first responders and understand their sense of duty, Prison Break Tattoos is a haven for clients to share their stories and pay tribute to the moments on the job that have had a profound impact on their lives. "Hero Ink" premieres Thursday, June 6 at 10pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes. Each half-hour episode features stories from several first responders - including cops, firefighters, EMS professionals and members of the military. Prison Break Tattoos owner BK Klev, a 25-year veteran of the Houston police department, matches each client with the artist he feels will connect with them best and help tell their story through a tattoo. Featured artists are Rich who served in the NYPD for 11 years, military wife Janice Danger, former Marine "Tony 4 Fingers," Zoey who was rescued by police as a child, and current Houston firefighter Robbie - all with a strong connection to the world of first responders. As the artists work to create a permanent tribute, each client shares their personal and often emotional stories of heroism which are brought to life through body-cam footage, news coverage, and personal photos.
