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.

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 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.

I'd rather have the bad tattoo that David did than the ugly colored squares that Gentle Jay did.

I have two problems with this show. First, six hours is not a lot of time. And second, those six hours should not include design and stenciling time. Creating and applying a stencil, especially for larger pieces, can take a decent amount of time if you want it done correctly. The clock should start when stencils have been applied and everyone's ready to go IMO.

I believe the stencils are ready, just not applied.

God. Kyle is just a big idiot. He completely threw his second chance away. He should have never gotten that second chance and I said so initially.

Ugh.

Nunez is that you?

I felt Nunez was totally against him but he was right when he asked are you better than Scott or Sausage.

At least the drama is over.

I always liked Sausage purely because he stayed out of the lounge drama, but boy if he didn't disappoint me last night. His attitude about being given the stomach piece was ridiculous. I think the canvas only got an attitude because they pointed out his ... slack skin post weight loss on national television and it took Sausage a long time to cool him back down. But he pulled it out in the end.
Note to self- never ask for a tattoo on my tummy

And goodness, but that pyramid/starry night gunpowder piece was beautiful!

I'm pulling for Halo, I guess-there just aren't any stand-out likable super talents.

I wish they'd brought Craig back.

Sausage is growing on me, too. I hated his name so much I kind of wrote him off.

I don't agree with that. The canvas walked in the room during the lineup with a glare on his face, ready for a fight. I think some of these canvases want the episode to be about them.

While if I was getting a tattoo I'd darn well want it great, I don't like it when the canvas tries to be difficult and it puts drama in the episode. If Sausage had gone home over a bad canvas, that would have been beyond unfair. Sausage and Halo and Scott are the best three, and that's clear. If they don't make the last three, at least let it be because they screwed something up all by themselves.

And when I saw Sausage's tattoo, I was like....damn. Nice.

Two possibilities:

1) The whole thing was contrived drama for ratings -- it's just a silly reality TV show after all, or

2) Kyle knew he wasn't going to win and probably wasn't even going to make it to the final four, so he purposely got into a fight rather than lose on the quality of his work. A strategic move to save face.

Like most of the drama in this show, I just can't believe it was genuine.

He's my prediction for who will be viewers choice to come back next season. I believe at least two (halo and scott), maybe three (matti) of the others are better than him, but sausage usually comes across as a nice guy and a calm professional.

I believe Kyle's anger was justified. But if you really want to have it out with someone, why are you shoving instead of throwing a punch. LAME!

It appears to me that they consult and design with the clients the day they are picked but the tattooing takes place the next day - so yes - the canvasses are seeing the final version of the artwork on the stencil but they only re-design if the clients bawk at it. I don't think putting a stencil on takes all that long.

I kind of wish the had some type of point system.

Force rank all tats and it is accumulative for the season. Each week the lowest goes home. Prevents artist from going home if they have one bad outing.

Has someone with a lot of tattoos I can say proper placement of a stencil can take awhile. Some of mine took 45 mins. Placing a flat image on a body is difficult especially if the image is geometric going on a curved surface like an arm.

I agree that stencil placement should not be included in their six hours.

How lame was Gentle Jay's attempt to discredit Scott? Not to mention he complaining about his client and all he does is bitch and moan!

I disagree. Doing a worse tattoo than everyone else kind of automatically says that they aren't an ink master, so there's no reason to keep them around.

I disagree about the client. I'm tired of clients coming in trying to make the show about themselves. As Jay said, in his shop, that client would have been told, "sorry, I can't accommodate what you want." That's professionalism.

I really think they need to have a backup client or two for those times when someone is unsuitable. I'm not sure this episode would have risen to that level as the tattoo was completed, but there have been other episodes where a contestant could not complete a tattoo because the client couldn't take the pain.

It's unfortunate that a bad client can doom a contestant, though in this case I feel Jay would have been in the bottom two regardless. There was quite a skill gap between the bottom two and the top four.

I actually thought it was valid. It was VERY similar. I do understand working with a source material. But that seemed to be90% and 10% creativity.

Jay''s not my favorite anyway.

And I like her personality, but I'm not sure why the gal is still there.
