Episode 1: Fresh Meat



Up till now, I have avoided any and all Tattooing shows. It just never interest me because there were/are so many different types of shows that I really didn't know what was good and what was bad. Well, I had some down time and I was browsing through my Spike TV Channel via Plex on Roku and it was actually another Tattoo show called Tattoo Rescue that I ended up checking out. But there was only one episode up. So, I did some more digging, seeing a handful of shows to choose from.

I knew Ink Master was the one that had Dave Navarro as host and decided I'd finally give this a shot. Very impressed with this show. It looks and plays exactly like Master Chef as this is a $100,000 competition pitting Tat Artist against each other to see who is the best. It has an elimination format meaning one person gets kicked off the show if they are deemed the worst in each round. So far, I'm impressed with a couple of the artist that just after one episode blew me away. And there are a couple that just absolutely suck and do not belong in this competition.

Botched Head Tattoo



The title of the episode says it all. That was embarrassing. To not be able to finish the job and leave it looking like that is extremely unprofessional and that fact that he chose to do that after winning the flash challenge. Yikes. Why put yourself out there? Let someone else take the fall and do the hardest job. What's interesting is hearing every artist come up with lame excuses to circumvent what is being asked of them in the challenge. I don't do this, I don't do that. Blah blah blah. If you can't do everything, then why the f*ck do you think you should be called Ink Master?

I use to watch (gawd, it must be years now) the LA Ink show. I like it because of the stories the people brought in with them. Not so much the tattooist themselves, while some were interesting, it was 'everybody has a story' premise.

I remember that one, but never watched it. Is it still on? What channel was it on? I may be able to dig it up on Roku and check out some past episodes.

Actually I had it wrong. It was Miami Ink and then they had a spin-off with Kat and made LA Ink, which I have not watched. The series are cancelled. I thought they were on MTV, but looks like they were on TLC.

Pasties And A Cameltoe



Good God. I've never seen a bunch of whiners complaining about how judging is being handled on a competition like this one. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE has some lame excuse about why their tattoos suck. I know why. It's because you guys do suck. So far, there's only a couple of artist that are really bringing their A-Game. Top dawg right now would have to be Shane.

I don't get how he was the only one that understood what the challenge of Black To Grey (Gradient Shading) was. It's simple. Black to grey. Sheesh! I'm glad that Al Fliction got the boot. He was horrible, but you never would have guessed with the amount of time he kept running his mouth. FYI, what a dumb name too.

I loved the Flash Challenge at the beginning of the episode when they brought out a bunch of naked chicks to basically be used for body painting. Hubba hubba!!

Ink Disaster Piece



Lea is coming back strong now. That Snow Leopard Tat was awesome and she nailed it in the Photo-Realistic challenge. I think it's gonna come down to her and Shane. But here's the thing, so far, Shane hasn't done any color work on his tats. It's been nothing but Black/Grey, which if you think about it, gives Lea the edge because she is more well-rounded and if Shane doesn't dip his needle in some color soon, it's gonna come back to bite him in the ass. Not surprised to see Heather go. Horrible "Fireman's Helmet". Get rid of Billy too. He's just as bad in both style and whining.

Game On



Thank God they finally booted Billy from the show. He is a horrible artist and never belonged in the competition and he ALWAYS had an excuse why he couldn't do anything the judges asked of him. I hope I never have to see him and his stupid soul patch anywhere. Good riddance! Lea is back on shaky ground again after that awful Pirate Ship tat. Ugh.

Permanent Mistakes



Oh man, that was BRUTAL. This was the challenge I have been waiting for: Pin Up Girl Tattoo. Honestly, the only one in my eyes that nailed it was Shane. He rocked the hell out of it! Josh basically skated by without doing a true Pin Up and went to a Cartoon look rather than realism. His tat colors looked great, but I think he just cheated his way into the next round. Not sure why the Judges didn't rip him a new one. The other tats, especially by Lea and James were a joke. Lea arm and hand were horrible and James, he gave his Girl 2 right feet! 2!!!! Yikes! Lea gets the boot.

Picture Imperfect



Shane rocked the Portrait tattoo. He was so good in this challenge. There was just no way anyone was going to beat him. As for the other 3, they gave Tommy 2nd best, but to me it was still a bad tattoo. So, it came down to Josh and James, each handing in a very crappy tat. I was sure that Josh would skate into the finale based on better results in the past. So imagine my surprise that he got the boot, giving James the 3rd spot.

Ink Master Revealed



I'm not surprised that Shane was named Ink Master. But I did think it was a little biased and unfair that he was crowned. Based solely on the final 2 challenges, it should have been Tommy who won. His two tattoos that he did far exceeded what anyone else did. He rocked it. I think Shane only nailed 1 of the final 2. His Buddha Statue was great. His flaming skull sucked. The judges gave him the title because overall he was the most consistent artist.

So this thread is 3-1/2 years old already.

I'm under the weather with a summer cold, so I'm surfing around and landed on a full day of Ink Master.

I love the art of good tattoo's. I have one I designed, with cleanup from the tattoo artist. It's nice but not great. Over time I've come to appreciate good art.

I find Ink Master rather interesting for character study. The first and foremost trait is arrogance. Personally I hate it in any context. If you are the worlds best, I don't want to hear from you how great you are. Being humble speaks wonders. Arrogance blinds. Everyone of the arrogant guys was blinded to their work. They sucked. The artwork spoke for itself. Of course there were more quiet artists that sucked too.

Another thing I found interesting were the clients blindness. These folks were totally buying into their commissioned sucky work and defending their art and artist. Wow.

So, what have I learned? First, this show not about the client. It's about the artist and the competition. also I've watched enough of these reality shows to realize everything is manufactured. The way they edit, add dramatic music. It makes for enticing viewing, but it's far from real.

The other thing I learned... I've got another tattoo in mind. I cannot get one at this time, because of my blood thinners (I have to wait a year). But when I do go, I'm going to interview artist, but more importantly look at their body of work. Like I said... The art speaks for itself.

What season is this series on now? I never moved onto Season 2 because I just don't watch Spike TV at all and just totally forgot about the show all together. Your perspective about Art Vs Artist on the show is spot-on.
