"Color Outside the Lines" Documentary, Free Online
In my top five of tattoo documentaries, there is Color Outside the Lines -- the first film to explore the experiences of professional black tattoo artists in America. I wrote about the film here, and I interviewed Miya Bailey, the tattoo artist who conceived and produced the film, which was directed Artemus Jenkins.
I'm revisiting the film today because I just found out that Miya has graciously posted the film in its entirety on YouTube, which I've embedded below. I highly recommend the film for its insightful interviews with legends such as Jackie Gresham, the first professional black tattoo artist renowned in the US, and Zulu, (whom Miguel interviewed for N+S, posted here), as well as talks with the new generation of tattooers of color. Engaging storytelling and a history lesson, all in an hour & a half.
You can also purchase the DVD for $10 online here. For more, click Miya Bailey's site.
