I love this show, have followed every season, and I agree with your spoiler. Homeboy got screwed.
This is the only reality show I watch and its awesome. Love watching tattoo artists work.
I love this show, have followed every season, and I agree with your spoiler. Homeboy got screwed.
I also watch and love this show, followed all the seasons, and then chase it with Tattoo Nightmare.
Regarding the spoiler:
The human canvas jury this season cracks me up. It's basically a bunch of people arguing in favor of their tattoo. Everyone slams the shittiest tattoos in the jury but the person who is stuck wearing it forever defends the hell out of it, then he/she intentionally points out the smallest flaws in other tattoos. Makes me laugh every time.
In regards to the spoiler comments.
I felt kinda bad on this last portrait challenge, the jury made that poor old lady cry.
I caught part of the first season and it was weird to see Jesse Smith on there. He's one of the best artists in the country and never imagined he would take part in some shitty reality show.
Watching that old lady cry was harsh, I felt that in my gut. But that tattoo was spot on, when it heals its going to look just like her. You coukd see it on the artists face like man I dont want to do this a good tattoo will look ugly because shes so ugly. He looked upset to.
which one is this? my wife and i used to watch both tattoo shows, the one with dave navaro or the one with the pretty blond? i believe from memory the one with dave navaro was better, idk why tho. is this the one on spike?
Fuck, I missed last week, didn't get to seeget kicked off.Spoiler:
This finale is going to be amazing. Should have been Craig, Jime and Joey though. Craig better get voted back next season.
So apparently the very first commercial that aired during this latest episode showed the 3 remaining contestants, essentially spoiling who was going to be voted off that episode. I agree, the finale is going to be amazing and with them having 35 hours to do what they want over the course of a couple of months, there should be some amazing artwork come out of it.
I thought the 4 tats at the same time on the same canvas was a nice twist.
Watched the finale last night, aside from seeing the 35 hour tattoos and Tatu Baby's tits hanging out it sucked. It was like a Jerry Springer episode hosted by Dave Navarro.
I thought Jime should have been the first elimination, it was flat as fuck and didn't read well at all from a distance. Joey definitely deserved to win, but I thought Baby did better than Jime in the end.
Still I would not have been sad to have any of those tattoos on my body so they all did a pretty good job overall.
Just watching the Finale now, Craig not getting voted back is insane.
Just finished it, Jimmy should have taken that. All the stuff leading up to the 35 hour tattoo's was really hard to watch.
Next season less drama, more tattooing.

Necroing this thread a bit - so...."the big fight", what a bunch of crap. I think the producers think they have some great reality show where people care about the interactions of the tattoo artists. When in reality, we just want to see cool and well done tattoos. So much meh interactions. Really liked the negative gunpowder "flash" challenge.
I enjoy watch this show, but i fast forward through all of the bitching and arguing. I agree with people just want to see the Tattoos.
kyles tattoos were pretty basic imo
now i don't have a single tattoo and i can't draw a circle, but hey those who can't do, critique, right?
imo, only the beast tattoo looks good, not cuz i like comics, but cuz beast is fucking a fucking hairy furball, hell he doesn't even get this level of detail in the comics, usually he's just blue and a few lines to signify a hair or two.
he's just your avg hothead and he didn't deserve to come back with this level of skill, so i guess the judges were having fun with him (they were riding him harder than the other contestants)

These final 4 did some excellent work this week! The breast cancer survivor tattoos were all just top notch quality and quite beautiful. The "cover up" stuff came down as more of a tiebreaker I think. I think these three are the strongest tattoo artists I've seen on the show as a group. I am very impressed with the tattoos this week can't wait to see the final pieces!
And if they do the "person coming back" thing again, I think it's Melissa as well.
they'll probably have the person coming back is whoever had the most twitter votes or whatever stupid online voting. or just melissa vs halo.
Melissa is super talented. Halo had a lot more personality and camera time, also did good work.
I don't know how they missed the ring on the middle finger looking so strange, like it was between the fingers.
My favorite of the final 3 back pieces was Matti's. Just appealed to me the most. The color choices on Scott's were awesome, though. Anyone else think the woman on Sausage's tattoo looked weird?
Umm..fantastic ass on Sausage's canvas...holy crap.
scott drew such an ugly face, matti's boob shot looks like an ass, since it was also like 3in away from the guys ass, it looks like he has double ass.
this season tho, all 3 were actually talented and it wasn't a landslide imo, not like all previous seasons, also the final 4 (inc, halo) i think were the only ones to win challenges and have best tattoo, no one else won shit.
overall i think sausage pulled out better tattoos, knowing the way these guys vote, they just wanted the controversy more than to award a deserving winner.
I was a bit surprised Sausage didn't take it, but really he and Scott were very close throughout the whole season. And yes, the whole live finale thing is pretty cringe worthy and we fast forward all the crap in between just to see the tattoos and what the judges think. I could give a rats ass about all the sabotage, back stabbing, and fake melodrama.
Season 5 started up focused on rivals. Basically they figured out that they need to add drama to keep the series going. Right off the bat I can't wait for Emily Elegado to be eliminated, she's annoying as fuck.
I have never watched this show but I powered through the second half of last season when the marathon was on the other night. I find tattoos really interesting but this show is hard to sit through because of all the drama and the cornball dramatic pauses that last 20 seconds. That said, I don't really understand the fascination with cheesy gore, monsters, skulls, etc in the tattoo community. These dudes all get to make a whole back tattoo of anything that they want and they all do vampy women with snakes and hearts and one of the women eating a fucking heart. Who in the fuck wants a giant picture of a cartoon woman eating a god damn heart raw on their back? It seems like all of these dudes idea of "art" came from the t-shirt stand at the Sturgis bike rally.

is this your first time watching the show? you'll be amazed at how famous this show is. the first season they practically had to have walk-ons/volunteers sign elicit wavers that they won't get fucked up tats, and i'm sure even a few of the judges said "i'll fix that".
now they're swamped with volunteers, who just want any god damn fucking tat.
mona lisa on a shaved head challenge! sign me up!
if anyone else whose watched all the seasons please comment on this, as i know zero/ziltch about tats have none, don't care for them, but my wife and i like watching good reality comp shows.
this show is one of the best, b/c the judges give real honest opinions, and don't sugar coat shit to look good for tv, they also don't have a girl on the judging panel, just to have a girl. cuz honestly 99% of all female judges suck and are pathetic, best female judge, heidi klum, every other female, wants to be your bff, or cause dramz for tv cuz they're ugly like that one horseface on top model. (like i said we watch these shows)
HOWEVER, the fake drama in s4 was pretty much dogshit, kyle didn't deserve to comback and when he did they picked on him for the LULZ and wait for him to explode for dramz.

Oliver is probably the best judge on any competition show.
Started watching the new one last night and it took about 30 seconds before I started wishing that girl Emily would get hit by a truck. She's trying to be a female Josh but she just comes off as a super cunty try-hard. You can tell she's lowering her voice to seem more edgy too. Girl just wants her tits on tv as long as possible.
The rivalries seem pretty trite, two dudes had never even met and were just beefing on Instagram.

i would counter the instagram beef.
apparently most of these tattoo artists live and die by instagram now. they finish a tat, they take a pic for their book then post on instagram.
instagram is like the de facto outlet for all artists
i'm the opposite with cunty mcboobs, i hope she stays, not cuz i like her, but well dramz. the dramz created by the contestants is cooler to watch than the fabricated shit between judges like that contrived nunez/kyle bs.
also seems like they all attacked that black boy like fresh meat since he's only got 2 1/2 years in the industry.
just 30mins of that, that'd be cool.
After a couple of weeks in now, and it seems pretty clear to me who the final 3 or 4 will be. Sadly I don't give enough shits to know their names versus their faces except for Josh. And if cunty mcboobs if the black haired chick, they are gonna keep her there until just at the end to keep giving the other tattoo artists both a hard time and hard ons.
Maybe he set out to draw a hula girl with broken ankles and different sized boobs that just received 100 bee stings on her face and used jizz for hair gel like Cameron Diaz in "There's Something About Mary".
They are having all kinds of messed up fun this year, aren't they? Butt tattoos with cheek vs. cheek being a head to head (), and several people who put out some very good tattoos. Still wouldn't want a tattoo on my butt cheek.
Josh got kicked for doing weed, reason:
contract of the show,
I guess you're not allowed to have contraband while doing the show, which is pretty bullshit, look at everyone there, they're all poster children for say no to drugs,
Fuck look at dave navarro!
This is more bullshit, sure it's a contract, but i bet dollars to donuts give everyone a drug test and 50% will fail.
It's also the second bullshit excuse to get rid of josh, his first kick on s3 was b/c he can't draw, wtf, they kick a guy who was almost final four b/c they "think" he can't draw.
I'm not on the Josh train, but i've seen this bullshit show try to conjure up as much drama as they could.
Like Josh will always change the placement of a tattoo , well NO FUCKING SHIT, who wouldn't.
The other competitors hate on Josh cause he's got the gift of gab, sorry if you fail at communication!, what Josh is doing is being a fucking salesman, as a former salesman it's hard, and i can respect what he's doing, while the other competitors are jelly.
Yeah that was super-bullshit. He had the best tattoo of the day and still went home. He and Clean were the #1 front runners and I think Josh could have taken the whole thing. Real bummer, he didn't bother me nearly as much this season as he did last time.
I swear they ONLY cast sandy vaginas for this show. Never in my life have I seen such a collection of whiney bitches who complain about everything. That fucking ginger beard is the worst too. Weed gives you an unfair advantage, really? All they do is bitch, bitch, bitch.
While I also thinks it was a weak excuse, if I was one of the other artists on the show, I'd have been pushing to get him booted over it. He's clearly one of the top to win it, and getting him booted gives other artists a better chance. It was still pretty lame though. Looks like it will come down to Kleen(?) and Eric imho.
No it's lame b/c every cunt on that cast thinks they're top dog and "I WILL OUT-INK YOU!!!", but fuck it if i can circumvent directly challenging you, i'll do that too.
If they were real competitors, they'd be like "fuck it, it's only weed, let's fucking ink-battle!!!"
No instead they hide behind a piece of paper, when these cunts are supposed to be like outlaws and shit.
(truthfully everyone was scared of Josh, imo, he was easily top 1 or 2)
Yup, pretty much my thoughts exactly lanx. I am far from a Josh fanboy but damn those other whiney cunts talk all this shit about being such a better artist and "let the ink speak for itself", then the second someone farts in the wrong direction they run tell the teacher on them. In that episode they were acting like Josh got caught taking steroids in a baseball hitting competition. It's fucking weed!
If Josh wasn't smoking during the actual competition (during the process of inking), then there is no unfair advantage. The same can be said about smoking cigarettes: nicotine can act as an anxiolytic to these smokers. Hell, the same can be said about alcohol. He is coming from a state where weed is legal. I wonder if the contract specifically states weed is a contraband or if it just says, "no contraband" -- leaves room to debate.
Navaro said "contraband", they also film in NY (growing up in nyc public school systems they have a big "just say no"). At this point it's not as subjective as wtf judges thinking, (like does weed help you perform better or shit) but rather objective, they ALL signed a piece of paper, having to do with contraband, one person got called out on it.
I've never done drugs and I think Josh is a sleaze ball, but wtf look at swim GOD Michael Phelps, 14 Gold medals, his face on wheaties (or whatever cereal) and he got tons of kids interested in being a fish, a twitter pic with a bong and he's fucked.
It's basically Corporate America, you have to learn to Cover your Ass (CYA) and not be taken down over semantics. Josh should have been smarter, just cuz you can Hippie your life away in Oregon doesn't mean that shit can work in NY, also wtf, he was a previous cast member, does this mean he also smoked weed on s3 and no one gave a shit?
The "advantage" Josh got from weed was basically getting rid of his anxiety. Which, you know, Jason was popping fucking Xanax for. But hey Xanax is okay because rules.
HA! So Jason "I'm having a panic attack" Dunn wins this seasons Ink Master.
What is up with the live finale stuff. It's just terrible. Glad we record it so we don't have to watch all that shit. Good to see Sausage again.
He should have gone home the night they sent Josh home.
Just got around to the finale, i am shocked that fatbeard won. Honestly, he did have the best back tattoo, erik or whoever boring fucks back tat was boring, and clean who always on top sucked dick with that nasty ass back tattoo. I'm shocked that they actually let fatbeard win, not that his tattoo didn't deserve it, it was nice, but the fact that they all were lusting after clean the whole season. i did think josh had the best tattoo and clean was either phoning it in, or just sucked ass with the style given.
also during the finale sausage was doing an elf tat on a chick, and that's the best tattoo i've seen all season cuz this bunch of losers really suck at tattoo'in.
this was the casting call.
you got beef with someone who inks also?
I didn't watch this season. Did anyone manage to come up with something that didn't involve a snake, a vampy chick, and a skull for the finale? I swear for people who are calling themselves artists when you leave them to their own devices, they go straight for "Dude, there could be a chick and like a snake around her, and she's holding a skull or a head or something, and she's got a knife and there's blood and maybe her boobs are showing and she has a lot of eye makeup. That would be totally badass! No one has ever done a tattoo like that before am I right?

The twist on the final piece was that they all had to do back pieces, but that the other two people would pick the third person's style that they had to create it with.
Jason "Xanax" Dunn had to tattoo new school style and won with this:
Which to be honest is probably my favorite tattoo coming out of a finale. The other two guys were supposed to do color photo realism, and both of them looked cartoony as fuck, like they didn't even understand what the challenge was.

Watching the Christmas special was a breath of fresh air. All pretty amazing tattoos. I had never thought of getting a Christmas tattoo but I think it wouldn't be so bad with a interesting idea and a good artist.

Sausage's elf tat was the best of the entire season.
