A&E Network will premiere a new unscripted series centered on first responders getting tattoos in June.

Hero Ink follows the work of tattoo artists at Prison Break Tattoos in Houston, Texas, who specialize in creating meaningful, custom tattoos for first responders, paying tribute to the work they do every day. Each artist has some connection to the work of first responders, informing their art.

Each 30-minute episode looks at both the work of the first responders in the chair, and the process of crafting their personal piece.

The series is produced by Matador Content for A&E. Executive producers for Matador are Jay Peterson, Todd Lubin, Brian Nashel and Jerry Carita. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Amy Savitsky and Devon Graham Hammond serve as executive producers for A&E.

A&E holds worldwide distribution rights.

Hero Ink premieres June 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E, with back-to-back episodes.
