Steven Tefft Named Season 2 Winner of Ink Master

In a live finale that was filled with both controversy and surprises, Steven Tefft was named the winner of season 2 of "Ink Master." Tefft goes home with a cash prize of $100,000, a feature article in the premiere tattoo publication Inked and the ultimate bragging rights title of 'Ink Master.' In a first-ever series twist during the live telecast, viewers went online and voted one artist, Tatu Baby, back for a second chance which will put them into competition for "Ink Master" season 3 airing next year.

Sixteen of the top tattoo artists from around the country battled it out each week, competing in various tattoo challenges that not only tested the artists' technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity. The challenges focused on different tattooing techniques and styles. 

After every challenge the contestants faced a tough panel made up of Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction), renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez ("Miami Ink") and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo) and a roster of guest judges including tattoo legends Forrest Cavacco, Freddy Negrette, Mike Rubendahl, Richard Stell and Bob Tyrell. Each individual artist's work was critiqued and each week at least one contestant was sent home.

The final three contestants: Sarah Miller, owner and tattoo artist at Wyld Chyld Tattoo in Pittsburgh, PA, Sebastian Murphy, tattoo artist at Detroit Ink in Mt. Clemens, MI and Steven Tefft, owner and artist at 12 Tattoos in Groton, CT were each assigned their own master canvas. They were sent back to their home bases to complete a 24-hour tattoo, where they had four, six-hour sessions with their master canvas to create a tattoo design that was completely left up to the discretion of each artist.

In the finale Miller, Murphy and Tefft revealed their master canvases to the judges and America. Murphy was eliminated from the competition after receiving the lowest number of votes based on season-long online fan voting. In a surprise twist, season 2 contestant Tatu Baby was voted by viewers to get a second chance at the "Ink Master" title, by awarding them a spot in the Season 3 competition.

In the end, it came down to Miller and Tefft with the judges in a close call, ultimately naming Tefft the season 2 winner of "Ink Master."
