“Hero Ink” follows 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. 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 “Four-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. In the premiere episode, Sgt. Sean “Sticks” Larkin, from A&E’s “Live PD,” stops by to get a special tattoo to commemorate his decades of service. Other stories featured include tributes to service animals, first responders who risked everything to help others on September 11th, heroes who came together to protect people and property from natural disasters, and teams who have made difficult decisions amid harrowing ordeals. In each case, the clients honor these stories of bravery through a unique tattoo that serves as a lifelong reminder to the moments and people who have impacted their lives and the lives of others.
