I think this is great show, very funny to watch! "Funny", but maybe not for the right reasons, that's true 😁 . Man, 2/3 of the tattoo artists suck so much! So it makes me laugh when they announce that these are the best tattoos artists of the country. First of all, the best tattoos artists wouldn't bother taking part in such show. The bests are already famous, making good money, and don't need this kind of exposure. So of course, those we see in Ink Master, are wannabees, who believe they'll kick start their fame and career thanks to the show. This is true for some of them, I recognize that the last 3-4 of each seasons are really good, but the others are so crappy! This is scary sometimes! But their epic fails are so fun to watch! Especially since it's not on me! LOL. I love the Pin-up challenge, each time they screw up so much! That's unbelievable, but funny as hell, excepting for the skin models!
Now, there is something I don't understand. This show has existed since 2012, the tattoo artists know perfectly well there will be challenges in which they'll have to do pin-ups, portraits, old-school/traditional, covers, Japanese style, and other things like that. But each time, you get guys crying and complaining, because they don't know how to do this, or haven't done this in years. I don't get it! They know they'll have to do this, at some point, so why don't they learn or train before applying?!
