Come to me .... and live forever.


Ink Master returns for season 9 of the hit tattoo competition, Tuesdays at 10pm EST on Spike. We've seen rivals battle, apprentices challenge masters, even judges collide. This season, it's all about the shops.



Two artists from the same shop compete as a team through Flash Challenges that provide the advantage of choosing who tattoos what, and the Elimination Tattoo where they will face the judges and be eliminated based on their ability to tattoo a live human canvas. The winner will receive $200,000, a feature in Inked magazine, and the title of "Master Shop."

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! Every time one of these shops is eliminated, a new shop will take its place, featuring a returning artist who has competed for the title of Ink Master before, and failed. While they carry the experience of the competition, their partner is coming in fresh, and every other shop will have full knowledge of what brought them down. The elimination tattoos will be based on what got them eliminated, and every shop will form a new jury of peers in order to put one up for elimination.

THE SHOPS:

Allegory Arts of Florence, AL
-Ulyss Blair Co-Owner/Artist, 12 years' experience - his favorite styles include traditional and realism, he joins the competition alongside his wife Eva.
-Eva Huber Co-Owner/Artist, 13 years' experience - a gypsy spirit great at reading pepole, her illustrative flair balances Ulyss' bold style, hoping to put Alabama tattoos on the map.

Artistic Skin Designs of Indianapolis, IN
-April Nicole Artist, 8 years' experience - a headstrong artist with loud opinions, specializing in feminine and colorful styles, ready to bite back if someone calls her out on something she doesn't believe in.
-Dane Smith Artist, 6 years' experience - claims he thrives in competitive settings, and enjoys creating tattoos that flow and fit well on clients' bodies, including designing the 2012 Olympic synchronized swim team uniforms.

Black Anchor Collective of Hesperia, CA
-Carlos Rojas Artist, 15 years' experience - prides himself on attention to detail and considers himself one of the best realism artists in the country, which pairs with his "tell it likes I see it" attitude.
-Aric Taylor Artist, 25 years' experience - admittedly humble and his own worst critic, he enjoys realism with a twist, and plans to let his many years of art knowledge speak for themselves.

Classic Trilogy Tattoo of Cortland, NY
-Thom Bulman Owner/Artist, 10 years' experience - despite his tough looks, he describes himself as a big softy, enjoying new school and cartoony tattoos, and priding himself on his social following he hopes will help him win the competition.
-Derek Zielinski Artist, 12 years' experience - sure he'll get under people's skin, he practices a holistic and vegan lifestyle, as well as traditional, portrait, new school, and realism styles. He promises his clean lifestyle won't prevent him from fighting dirty.

Pinz and Needles of Baltimore, MD
-Jessy Knuckles Artist, 5 years' experience - known for her wildlife and animal portraits, she actually enjoys doing cover ups and her favorite styles include black and grey and color realism. As a mother of one, she's motivated to fight to the bitter end to take home the title.
-Allisin Riot Artist, 4 years' experience - confident her best friend Jessy will make them "the" team to beat this season, as she excels in the styles of new school, geometric, realism, and watercolor.

The Marked Society Tattoo of McDonough, GA
-Wes Hogan Artist, 17 years' experience - a kind, wise, and knowledgeable artist with a big beard you can spot a mile away, he describes his style as diverse and plans to let the others self-destruct before showing his stuff to eliminate the others one by one.
-Mike P Co-Owner/Artist, 5 years' experience - laid back and funny, his charm is lost when someone crosses him, and he describes himself as well rounded with super clean lines.

Thicker Than Blood of White Plains, NY
-Jhon Campuzano Artist, 8 years' experience - feels the rough times he faced growing up helped mold him into a strong person and better tattoo artist, well-versed in all styles but with black and grey as his go-to. He plans to use patience and his ability to work well under pressure to bring the win home to his wife and daughter.
-Babiery Hernandez Artist, 6 years' experience - very passionate about drawing and feels his artistry will put him above the rest, hoping to represent his family and make them proud as his inspiration for art.

Tri-Cities Tattoo of Atlanta, GA
-Bang Artist, 4 years' experience - began tattooing out of her dorm room before commissioning as an Army Officer, her styles include photorealism, portraits, sci-fi and surrealism, and she's on a mission to prove that artist of color are a force to be reckoned with.
-Danger Dave Artist, 9 years' experience - the son of a preacher, he rebelled and became a tattoo artist with a laid back demeanor but a loud personality when needed. His signature style is sculpture and draws inspiration from African themes, wanting to prove people of color are known for more than just "urban" tattoos.

Unkindness Art of Richmond, VA
-Erin Chance Owner/Artist, 10 years' experience - someone who literally moved across the world to broaden her art and career, her skills in New Zealand trasfer to the States with her color illustrative work, and her passion is unrivaled in the competition.
-Doom Kitten Artist, 6 years' experience - despite not tattooing very long, he feels confident in his neo-traditional style, and plans to use his skills as a gamer to pick apart the strong artists one by one with careful strategy.

THE JUDGES

Oliver Peck - Owner of Elm St. Tattoo and Original True Tattoo with 20+ years experience and world records in tattooing. He won Peck vs. Nunez and Nunez didn't.

Chris Nunez - Partner in Ridgeline Empire, former cast member of Miami Ink. He has his own wikipedia page and Oliver doesn't.

Dave Navarro - Founding member of Jane's Addiction. He likes to hang out.

As always, a new season of Ink Master: Redemption premieres right after Ink Master at 11pm EST. Over a hundred artists competing means as many angry human canvases wanting redemption for the poor tattoo they got on the show.

Plus, remember the Girls' Alliance from last season, consisting of Kelly Doty, Gia Rose, Nikki Simpson, and eventual winner Ryan Ashley? Well, Spike sure does, and that means everybody's favorite contestants are back! Coming this Fall, following this season of Ink Master, it's Ink Master: Angels featuring the top female competitors traveling the country to go head to head with some of America's most talented tattoo artists in a series of challenges. Whoever does the best will earn a spot on Ink Master season 10, coming in 2018.

First impression is that Classic Trilogy won't go very far due to big ideas they can't execute (and probably being in the nerd bubble.) Tri-Cities are already fighting, which means they'll make it until halfway at least, but it'll become a matter of when and not if they get eliminated. Allegory Arts strike me as top three.

Oh I don't disagree, but this competition finds a way to keep the drama queens around and so far they're the biggest. It's funny, but with Bang and the others like her, with respect to her race and gender and ambition, those who make a big deal about having something to prove because they're always underestimated, tend to be the ones who end up being loud and obnoxious and (unsurprisingly) at the bottom of the pack.

That Marked Society gator is awful though. Looks like a snake's body with a gator's face. Should have lost.

So there are new shops coming in every week. Guess that's how they stretch it beyond nine episodes.

Also nice to see the Redemption tradition of getting the craziest people to come back remains strong. This guy with the Bill tattoo is nuts.

Have to disagree. That gator last week looked like a snake, and this tiger was just as bad with the missing tooth. Lines aside, if they can't draw an animal, they deserve to go.

Agree that the right time went home. Missing parts of an animal is bad: be the same if they missed a finger on a person that tattooed. Plus, Tri-Cities will only be around for so long due to their drama, and I love seeing more bad tattoos.

Can someone explain what Old Town Ink did that caused the other teams to pick them? They used a mag? I don't know what that means.

A mag has like 4 parallel needles so you can draw 4 parallel lines at once instead of doing each line one at a time. Everyone else thought it was cheating, but it was just really smart.

That flocking challenge really showed some good artistry for the most part but looked really challenging.

I liked how DJ Tambe told Bubba to stop thinking about tattoos and just do art but his whiny freak out made him look silly.

As far as the elimination I thought for sure Bubba and Dj would go home for not doing the cover up.

Redemption was pretty good at first, but it's pretty obvious at this point they tell the canvas to go in as mad and insulting and swearing as they can to create drama for the commercial, and then Dave steps in to quell it.

Although almost every new tattoo is actually pretty nice, and a lot of these artists do seem to work a lot better at their own pace compared to the competition.
