    Yeah, but most businesses don't leave permanent marks on your body.

    Clients know that going in.

    One of mine is less than perfect and I certainly am not angry at my artist- I may be disappointed but I know that crap happens and that just because I can dream something up doesn't mean it is entirely possible.
    That doesn't mean that I would enjoy listening to people discuss each little imperfection and pointing out how horrible it is.

    All I'm saying is that I find having the tattoo-ees there as part of the conversation is something I don't think is a good idea.
    The artists and judges are discussing the tattoo objectively while the person who received it (or in this case the subject of the portrait) can't help but take things a bit more personally.
    I just don't particularly enjoy watching people be hurt like that.

    That little old lady felt that the critiques reflected on her.
    Of course they did not, but still- IMO she did not need to be there hearing all of that.

    well there will be none of that
    - they sign a 20 page non-disclosure including they aren't even allowed to say they were there...
    my acquaintance who went in to interview won't even talk about it now...

    the elderly ladies tattoo - they hit the nail on the head
    it just wasn't aesthetically pleasing

    I forgot that the Ink Master finale is the reason they created the DVR. Snooze.

    Also, Craig didn't get the vote to go back? That's BS.

    Agreed.
    He was my favorite from the beginning.

    "Tatu Baby, you do not have what it takes to be inkmaster"
    Yeah, we knew that last year, Navarro.

    Craig started out as the one I expected to win, but he just can't do black and gray. Joey was my second choice, so all is good.

    Just watched the finale.


    I went into it a Joey fan, but left without having a favorite at all. I guess I'm a jime fan by default. Joey's bringing up the 'two right feet' in tatu baby's tattoo from who even remembers when felt unnecessary and petty. His comment that he would walk off th show if she wasn't eliminated first felt egomaniacal. He was the clear front runner. All he had to do was sit back and win graciously.

    Craig should have been in tatu baby's spot. It felt like they carried her the entire season for the ratings. Jason needed to STFU, he was just annoying. Josh persisted in being the villain even in the finale. i hope he was just some actor or amateur and for his sake doesnt need a job in the industry. who would want to work with him? I would have liked to hear a little from mystical mike and frank.

    The confrontational tone of the finale was unappealing. It felt like everyone was disrespectful to everyone else.

    I'm a bigger Kyle fan than I used to be. I even stopped calling him 'eyeball guy' and learned his name. I'm looking forward to seeing him back.

    Can someone remind me who was voted off because he fought with his canvas and was unable to do a tattoo in an episode? My gf says it was mystical mike, but I thought it occurred later in the season.

    He wasn't in the finale.

    Edit: Danger explains why he hasn't at the finale.

    In the end, Jimi and Joey deserved the final two.

    But mother effer, seriously no Craig? If he could take some time and learn black/white, he would have crushed it.

    If I had a list of people I wanted to be tatooed by, Craig would be it. The entire list.

    Somehow I think he'd be a little above my hebrew Grace tattoo. :)

    New season.

    First episode: I didn't hate the clipper ship as much as the did. It reminded me of the new style that is much freer going around right now.

    Second: holy meltdown.

    Also, ugh, Kyle.

    Recorded but no time to watch.
    I hope this new bunch at least has some interesting people.

    There are. "Gentle" Jay who is anything but.

    My front runner is Halo, which means he'll make it about half a season.

    Da boogie...
    There's a guy who suffered a back injury and it reared it's ugly head in the last episode. He ruined someone's arm for life. Even the judges said a cover-up would not help. YIKES!!

    I thought the one with squares looked worse.

    I think that those tattoos are at least 50% the shows fault and 25% that of the the canvas- who thinks five tattoos at the same time is going to result in five wonderful tattoos?

    Often having only one done at a time requires a bit of contorting to keep the skin properly taut and the artist in a position to be able to tattoo comfortably. But five? All crowded together and bumping?

    That was a stunt, plain and simple.
    Should the guy have said no, I can't tattoo in that position?
    He's left his home, family, and job to do this and he's supposed to give up the hope of the 100K because of this?
    Not even try?

    IMO he was put in a no win situation and it is the shows fault.

    Since it was only challenge tattoo and not the elimination tattoo, he should have stopped once he started having back pain.

    Yes, you are right.
    I watched very late at night and did not remember that.

    But I still think it was a silly stunt that was virtually guaranteed to result in at least one or two crappy tattoos.
