“This is some footage that didn’t quite make the final cut, primarily because there wasn’t enough space to incorporate the entire segment in my opinion. Originally I wanted to include an entire section focused on femininity within a male dominated culture. It would talk about how women with a lot of tattoos are often perceived by others, their relationship preferences, how hard it is to maintain those relationships as well as being the best at what they do in something traditionally masculine. A couple of the artists were single mothers as well, so we talked about how they balance that part of life as well. Unfortunately there were somethings we needed that we couldn’t get and we couldn’t figure out how to make this segment flow seamlessly with the rest of the film. It didn’t make sense to just put it in, if it didn’t flow. Women are still represented in the film and now here is some additional footage for your viewing pleasure”
Just some of the extra content from “Color Outside the Lines“

“Struggle, Joy, Failure, Success; words like these could serve as the backdrop for the next big hollywood blockbuster, or as a description of a tattoo artists life. Color Outside the Lines 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 linked 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 artists will live on forever“
A couple of weekends ago I finally took the time out to watch Miya Bailey’s[@MiyaBailey] tattoo documentary, “Color Outside the Lines“. While eating plantains I sat and not only watched the film, but I was also well informed on a few a lot of things in the tattoo world. Granted I don’t have an interest in ever being a tattoo artist, I was still amazed at what I learned. To hear each tattoo artist tell their story about how they got into the craft, and to see how passionate they feel about it was something I personally needed to see. There is so much sacrificed when one is pursuing their dreams, their passions. Unfortunately from the outside looking in no one really sees that, and to be honest not too many people understand that passion that drives them to make those sacrifices.

Download: Spree Wilson + The Flush Presents: Life In Technicolor Vol. 1. Artwork by: Miya Bailey[@MiyaBailey]. Entire Project Produced by: The Flush[@theflushmusic].
Here it is the latest project from The Flush and Spree Wilson[@SpreeWilson].
“The reason we started working on this is because we wanted to make a fun project that was influenced by being young in the summer and falling in love. A lot of these ideals stem from my childhood and spending my summers in Atlanta living with my grandmother. This EP owes as much to the city of Atlanta as it does to the people who impacted my life there musically during that time” - Spree Wilson
“Crafting the musical soundtrack for the Life In Technicolor EP was nothing short of amazing. Embarking upon this musical journey with Spree Wilson taught us so much about our city (Atlanta), it’s culture, and our role in continuing the musical legacy that inspired the creation of this project. We found a great team mate in Spree, and thankfully we were able to successfully articulate his music vision as the sole producers of the Life In Technicolor EP” - The Flush
