The final four shops race to secure spots in the finale as Dave gives them perhaps the most grueling challenge yet: a tattoo marathon.
The skull pick that determines what style each tattoo shop has to ink begins and everyone’s nerves are shot. One lucky shop gets “Shop’s Choice” while others aren’t so lucky.
The race to the finish line intensifies as the tattoo marathon kicks off. DJ throws a curveball at the rival tattoo shops, hoping they’ll take the bait and fall flat on their faces.
After Golden Skull Tattoo put inverted hands on their Buddha tattoo, the whole shop hammered them for it – and so did the judges. So close but yet so far, one again, for Cleen Rock One.
The last two tattoos of the day get laid out and inked with only 90 minutes on the clock. Erin shows signs of doubt as Doom Kitten wraps up their tattoo in a rush.
A fatal flaw is noticed in Aaron and Cleen’s Asian deity tattoo by the judges and they start to wonder if this may just send them home. Matt and Katie are delighted at the major blunder.
