Artist and writer Paul S. Flores received a call in 2009 from Ana Perez and Andrew Wood, who worked at the Central American Resource Center’s tattoo removal program. They had just received a grant and wanted to work on a creative project.

Flores agreed and started researching a play he later decided to name “PLACAS: The Most Dangerous Tattoo.” PLACAS is barrio slang for graffiti tags, a nickname or body tattoos.

It took Flores three years to finish the play. The show will premiere on Sept. 6 at Union Square’s Lorraine Hansberry Theater.

Tickets are $13 to $30 and the show starts at 8 p.m.
