Tattoos On The Heart
Father Boyle is a familiar figure in Los Angeles, as he built Homeboy Industries into the largest gang intervention program in the country. Homeboy offers services such as tattoo removal, job training and employment, bringing together members of enemy gangs to work side-by-side in a safe environment. The idea of Homeboy Industries came after the rise of gang violence in Southern California in the early 1990s.
“Tattoos on the Heart” was released in 2010 and serves as the inspiration for this series.
