"Struggle, Joy, Failure, Success; words like these could serve as the backdrop for the next big hollywood blockbuster, or a description of a tattoo artist's life. Color Outside the Line is the first film that provides a deep look into the history, culture and lives of the world's top black tattoo artists. Creating a film that would accurately tell the stories of these amazing artists, was initially a dream that manifested into a reality when world renowned tattoo artist, Miya Bailey lined with burgeoning filmmaker Artemus Jenkins. After three years of filming and tattooing everywhere from Atlanta to Amsterdam, this film is here to make sure the story and legacies of these artist will live on forever." - Color Outside the Lines: A tattoo Documentary- Directed by: Artemus Jenkins Conceived and Produced by: Miya Bailey
