“Bring Me Your Mistakes” is the invitation Ohio tattoo artist Billy Joe White makes. A documentary, set in the Appalachia region of Ohio, it tells Billy’s story as he shares his heartfelt mission to “erase the hate”. He provides, free of charge, redesigning of a tattoo representing hate. One by one, Billy reconfigures the visible signs of people’s distressing history that they are putting behind them into something beautiful.

Press Coverage for Beneath the Ink

Film Threat
Review by Paul Parcellin

“…this is a film that will make you want to stand up and cheer. It shows that change, even is small ways is important and powerful. And sometimes it takes just one person who is motivated toward taking positive steps to lead the way for others. It’s a much-needed ray of hope in what sometimes seems like a dark, difficult journey.”
