    Pretty sad Craig is gone, but it was necessary with his lack of talent with black and white.
    Not sure how Joshua or Baby are hanging on, really. Both are careening. And what's her name, whose mother is dying. I think she's going to crash soon, too, and rightfully so. That's a lot to have on your back.

    I just don't feel the quality is up to par this year.

    I don't get this show. Most people would be thrilled to have these tattoos.

    I think a lot of the tattoos look aweful. I don't know if it's the time constaints they put on them but I wonder if the have the 2 judges clean them up afterwards. The landmark tattoos were really bad.

    That's another thing I don't understand. Tattoo artist rushing my tattoo to meet a ridiculous deadline?

    Uhm..no thanks.

    I have to believe the show will pay for finish work or cover ups.


    ...but sure, I'm a sucker for skills competition shows, so I watch it anyway.

    Even the mask in the ass?

    There are a share that are just BAD.

    And then there was the canvas that volunteered for anything for the finale last year and the artist tattooed something really, really horrible for her personality.

    The tattoo itself was fine. Better than average even. As far as placement...if the dude didn't like it, all he had to say was "Nope - not there". But the guy didn't complain about it at all....in fact, 90% of the time, the canvases defend the work.

    I wonder about that. I wonder if they're just being nice in front of the artist, or what.

    The canvas jury is an excellent addition this year. I appreciate hearing a little of what they have to say.


    Speaking of bad tattoos, I'm not Baby's biggest fan, but I kind of liked the stylized lion. I'm weird that way I guess. :)

    Josh must have some incriminating pictures of Nunez or something; I can't understand how he's still around.

    Overall it's been a pretty terrible season so far. Even the conflict has been manufactured and centered around Josh's a-hole-ness, about which I just don't give a flying flip. Except for Jime Litwalk, I once again wouldn't let any of these people near me with a ten-foot pole.

    I watched season 1 then stopped and just started this new season after an addictive marathon this past weekend.

    I have a friend who is going in to be a human canvass so I will get the 411 on whether or not they get fix up clean up corrective tattoos if the artist messes up.

    I know this comment is from season 1 but I was thinking about that myself - i figure during a 6 hour session you would have to take breaks - bathroom breaks, pain breaks, stretch breaks - I think that's when the visiting of other stations probably happens - - - but this is a reality competition show so the producers probably encourage it.

    Gawd, this week was nothing but sob stories. One guy is having panic attacks. Jackie cries constantly and wants to show mommy she can do something. Another guy has to win cuz he's soon to be homeless. Geez, grow up.

    And don't get me started with the in-fighting. I know that's a signature of this show and most of it's contrived, but it's really, really old. I'm FF through 70% of this show now.

    As bad as Jackie's lines were, Jimmie's comic book villain was one of the worst things he's done. He should've been sent home.

    Wow. Harsh. I feel bad that her Mom is dying. That has to really suck and making the decision to go or not can't be easy.

    And having severe anxiety disorder, I totally get his struggle. It sucks and makes you bad at just everything.

    This show has turned out to be just mean. Judges mean to the artists, artists mean to each other, now this week the human canvas mean to the ol' lady with the wrinkles. I know most of it is editing, but I'm tired of it all. They're gonna lose me very soon.

    I don't like the "human canvas" (they're people, dammit) discussions at all.
    No one wants to sit in a room and hear how a tattoo they have dreamed about, just gotten, and are very happy with is the worst. They feel defensive, groupthink overtakes the others and they all pile on the "loser" and it just gets ugly.
    Plus it was extra horrible when the subject of the portrait was included in the conversation.

    If we want to judge these pieces dispassionately and critique freely, they shouldn't be there.
    That older lady portrait was truly hideous and she felt personally attacked.
    That was not good TV.

    Are they supposed to be lovely to each other? Tattooing is a harsh business. It's a TV show.

    The older lady, I did feel terrible for her. That was awful. I hope someone can fix it.

    The contestants can say and do what they like, but IMO to do so objectively the tattoo-ee should not be included in the conversation.

    I don't find it a "harsh business."
    The shops I have frequented have always been very professional.
    Not saying there aren't meth head Nazi tattoo shops, but I think the rough edge is a bit of a stereotype.

    You have to do things that are tremendously difficult and do them perfectly or you are going to have some very angry customers.

    I dated a former artist for a while. He was really, really talented until he developed carpal tunnel and wasn't as sharp. People weren't exactly forgiving.
