Photographer Steven Burton started an ambitious project, photoshopping out the tattoos from 27 ex-gang members. He did this to understand the effects tattoos have on people escaping the gangs, how they are judged by society and ultimately how they judge themselves.
While the photoshop aspects of removing tattoos are quite fascinating (over two years and 400 photoshop hours), it’s the affect that the shopped photos had that caught my eyes.
