    I was only giving it partial attention, but I believe the public vote also brought the finalists from three to two, eliminating Sebastian. The winner between the final two was chosen by the judges. Like Angie said, the public made the right choice but it didn't make sense to me to leave a relatively big vote up to them.

    ok, got ya..

    A couple of things bothered me about the finale.

    Why weren't the human canvases there ?
    They brought out Tommy Helm(show promotion), but no mention of last year's winner.(Shane)
    No matter what Peck said, I believe Jamie was unfairly eliminated due to not having any tattoos. Especially, that the guest judge immediately hated Jaime because of that.
    Peck should've taken Jaime up on his offer and cut his hair and mustache off. Also, get rid of that freakin' toothpick !

    Oh yeah. Jamie. I managed to miss the episode where he was eliminated, but I thought he'd win. What happened there?

    Between Jamie getting eliminated for a really stupid reason, and the really poor producing of the finale, this show really bombed at the end.

    I don't think the canvases were ever there in person during the tattoo critique portion of the show.
    I always thought it was so the judges could speak freely without feeling like they were offending the guy wearing the tat. I mean, presumably they watch the show and know that their new tattoo was judged as crappy and ill conceived, but standing there on camera hearing it might not be so easy.
    The showrunners must feel as if keeping the judging more impersonal is the best way. Plus I doubt they want disgruntled canvases speaking up on live television. Especially that poor finale lady that got the guy bursting out of her back.
    I felt bad for her but she sat there and let it happen, so...

    I was surprised that they only gave away the one cover-up- that portrait that Jesse did was bad.

    I agree with you about Jamie- he was called out for the way he chose to adorn -OR NOT- his body and IMO that is the height of hypocrisy for a tattoo artist. You could feel the hate coming off that guest judge toward him- that is just wrong.
    The drawings on his skin didn't help matters but honestly I thought that Jamie thought it would lighten the mood a bit when instead it absolutely tanked it.

    Way to make a TV show not fun, Spike.

    I'm not a fan of the toothpick. But he's a handsome fella. Not sure what it is about him-probably the hair. I like long hair.

    I wouldn't kick any of the three out of bed. ;)

    I can't stand him, mainly because he was married to Kat Von D and I just can't get behind anything/anyone she deems acceptable.

    And yeah, the toothpick has to go.

    I think they were together way back before she was KAT VON D. So I'll give it a pass.

    You know, I think this was rigged, in the end. I think they liked the visual Tatu Baby added, and they got rid of her so she could come back next season.

    Because there is no WAY that tattoo Sebastian did should have gone through.

    Also, I know they were supposed to be able to tattoo anything on their person, but seriously, they did not touch on how inappropriate the tattoo Sebastian did was for that woman?

    My recording stopped early, or the ep didn't synch up with the time. Did Steve win? And based on comments, I take it Tatu Baby is the one coming back next season, correct?

    Tatu Baby is coming back. Although IMO, that is not a "prize". She should'e been given a fan prize ala Survivor. And yes Steve is Ink Master.

    Steve did win and the viewers voted Tatu Baby back next season.

    NEW SEASON!

    Anyone watching?

    How do you attend a big competition like this with only one gun? I'm very confused by him.

    Maybe this thread title should be changed to Ink Master (whole series)

    Did anyone believe those were actual real inmates?
    I was thinking that maybe the guy that brought the one gun thought everything he needed would be supplied, but brought one special gun of his own to use. Either that or he's actually as simple minded as he seems.

    I was hoping he didn't mean he could only afford one. Like, he only brought one because that's all he had. I have a feeling we haven't heard the end of it.

    I'll see about the thread title.

    This is why I hate spike.
    Just once, I'd like to get the end of the episode recorded. Because of a conflict, I get the second airing of each new episode. I added 5 minutes to the end because I missed who got booted off at the end of an episode. Then it still happens so I change it to 10 extra minutes and this week I went with 15 extra minutes and still just missed the end.

    I think Craig might be the most talented all-around tattoer this show's seen.

    These people drive me crazy when someone wins a flash challenge then picks an easy on for the elimination challenge. Someone has to do it!!
