Gang Member’s Tattoos Were Removed In A Powerful Social Experiment.
Burton said that despite facing several obstacles at the beginning he pressed on because he knew it would change people's lives.
Here you can see a clip of a before and after subject. Francisco is amazed at the results of his "now" pictures without all of the tats. But he still has them all in real life.
Burton had a hard time tracking the former gang members down to deliver the finished results. Many of them had moved and no longer had the same phone number.
He took the time to make sure to do the best job he possibly could so the photos came out great.
The concept is to give the subjects a look at what could be if they didn't put tats on every part of their body.
The work that he does is actually kind of cool. But remember they are only pictures.
