A&E will debut the new original unscripted 12-episode series Hero Ink at 9 and 9:30 p.m. Thursday. The series follows the daily work at Prison Break Tattoos, a shop in Houston that specializes in creating meaningful tattoos for first responders. The shop's artists have a connection to the world of first responders and understand the life and the shop is a place for clients to share their stories and pay tribute to moments on the job that, oftentimes, have changed their lives.

Prison Break Tattoos is owed by BK Klev, a 25-year veteran of the Houston Police Department who matches customers with the artist he feels will connect with them best and help tell their story through the tattoo. The staff includes several former police officers, a firefighter, former members of the military and a woman who was rescued by police as a child.

In the premiere episode, Sgt. Sean "Sticks" Larkin, from A&E's Live PD, stops by to get a tattoo to commemorate his decades of service. Other stories include tributes to service animals, first responders who risked their lives to help others on Sept. 11, first responders to natural disasters and teams who have had to make difficult decisions during harrowing ordeals.

In each case, the clients honor their stories of bravery with unique tattoos that serve as a lifelong reminder to the moments and people who have affected their lives and the lives of others.
