Clean Slate Program
Tattoo removal for San Jose young people through a collaboration with the city, county and non-profit.
The City of San Jose's Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force came to us in hopes of shedding light on the intricate program they call "Clean Slate." We were asked to create a video that could help tell the story of the program. After our first pre-production meeting we knew that the story existed in the transformation of the participants as they removed marks on their skin that often branded traumatic times in their lives.
