- IN THE ELIMINATION TATTOO,IT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER

TO WIN TATTOO OF THE DAY,

BECAUSE THE WINNER MUST PUTONE ARTIST UP FOR ELIMINATION.

THIS WEEK,WE'RE TESTING NEGATIVE SPACE.

- NEGATIVE SPACE IS THE PARTSTHAT YOU DON'T TATTOO.

IT'S EVERYTHING THAT YOU BUILDAROUND THE SKIN

THAT YOU LEAVE OPEN.

- TODAY NEGATIVE SPACE ISABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL,

BECAUSE YOU MUST TATTOO

BLACK AND GRAY.

- [bleep] RIGHT.

- IF YOU DON'T HAVEENOUGH NEGATIVE SPACE

IN A BLACK-AND-GRAY TATTOO,

THE ENTIRE THING BECOMES DARKAND UNREADABLE.

- YOU'RE ONLY USINGBLACK INK,

SO YOU HAVE TO LET THE SKINPEEK THROUGH

TO REPRESENTALL OF YOUR LIGHTER AREAS.

- TODAY YOU MUST TATTOOA CREATURE

THAT APPEARSIN ALMOST EVERY CULTURE,

WHEREVER HUMANS STRUGGLEWITH GOOD AND EVIL--

A DEMON.- YES.

BLACK-AND-GRAY HORROR TATTOOS

IS SOMETHING THAT I CAN DOIN MY SLEEP.

I DO THEM ALL THE TIME.THIS IS [bleep] AWESOME.

- LET'S MEETYOUR CANVASES.

HALO AND SCOTT, YOU GUYSWON THE FLASH CHALLENGE.

YOU NOW HAVE THE POWER TO ASSIGNALL HUMAN CANVASES TOGETHER.

THIS IS A HUGE ADVANTAGE,SO DO NOT WASTE IT.

- HALO'S JUST AS THREATENEDBY SAUSAGE AS I AM,

AND WE'RE GONNA BEGUNNING FOR HIM.

- WHAT ARE YOU LOOKINGTO GET DONE?

- A FEW DIFFERENT SUCCUBUSESON MY LEG.

- ALL RIGHT, SWEET.- ALL RIGHT.

- I DON'T WANT TO TELL SCOTTTHAT I'M AIMING AT MATTI,

BUT I'M DEFINITELY TRYINGTO BREAK THE ALLIANCE UP.

I FEEL LIKEIT'LL MAKE SCOTT WEAKER.

- LOOKING TO GETA TERROR DOG DEMON.

- OH.- A SEXY, DEVILISH DEMON.

- ABOUT HOW BIG?- AS BIG AS YOU WANT TO GO.

- IF YOU GETA FEMININE DEMON,

IT MIGHT COME OFF TOO PRETTYTO ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE A DEMON.

SO THIS IS ONE TATTOOTHAT I REALLY DON'T WANT TO DO.

- I'D LIKE TO GET SATANFLYING OUT OF MY LEFT THIGH.

- I WOULD LIKE TO GET A GARGOYLEON THIS PORTION OF MY BODY.

- CAN WE SEE THE CANVAS?

JUST SIT NORMAL.DON'T SUCK IT IN.

- I'M NOT SUCKING IT IN.- NO WAY.

- I'M REALLY NERVOUS,BECAUSE I REALLY FEEL

THAT THERE'S A HUGE BULL'S-EYEON MY BACK.

- YEAH.

- SCOTT'S MY BOY,

SO I'M PRETTY SURE THATI'M GONNA BE SAFE IN THIS ONE.

- MM-MM.

- I'M GONNA HAVE TO MAKE A LOTOF LAST-MINUTE MOVES

IF I'M TRYINGTO SCREW MATTI OVER WITH A SKULL

UNDER SCOTT'S WATCH.

HERE YOU GO, BUD.- ALL RIGHT.

- CANVASES, ONE BY ONE,

PLEASE READ THE ARTIST'S NAMEON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SKULL.

- HALO.

- SAUSAGE.- WHY ME?

HOW IN THE HELLAM I GOING TO TAKE THIS CANVAS,

PUT ON A WINNING PIECE?

- REMEMBER, GUYS,AFTER THE ELIMINATION TATTOO,

THE HUMAN CANVAS JURYWILL VOTE ON THE TATTOO

THAT THEY THINKIS THE WORST

AND PUT ONE OF YOUUP FOR ELIMINATION.

AND THE WINNEROF TATTOO OF THE DAY

WILL ALSO PUT AN ARTIST UPFOR ELIMINATION.

YOU WILL HAVE SIX HOURSTO CREATE A TERRIFYING,

BLACK-AND-GRAY DEMON.

BASED ON YOUR WORK,ONE OF YOU WILL BE CLOSING SHOP.

GOOD LUCK.

- NEGATIVE SPACE IS THE ESSENCEOF BLACK AND GRAY.

ALL YOU HAVEIS BLACK AND THE SKIN.

IF YOU TATTOO TOO MUCH, YOU'RETAKING AWAY YOUR NEGATIVE SPACE,

AND YOU'RE GONNA CLOUD UPYOUR DESIGN.

- WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?- BUSTY AND SEXY, VOLUPTUOUS.

- OKAY. SO YOU'RE THINKING MORE,LIKE, DEMON PINUP STYLE.

- YEAH, LIKE,EVIL AND SEXY.

- ALL RIGHT,SO YOU WANT SATAN HIMSELF.

- YEAH. PITCHFORK IN HIS HAND.- ALL RIGHT.

- SO YOU WANT TO DO ITON YOUR STOMACH.

- YEAH.

- WHEN THE SKIN IS VERY LOOSEAND DEFLATED,

IT MAKES IT EXTREMELY HARDTO TATTOO.

IT'S EXTREMELY HARDTO WORK ON THE STOMACH.

AND IT'SA DISADVANTAGE TO ME,

BECAUSE IT'S SKINTHAT WAS NOW STRETCHED DOWN.

I HAVE TO MAKE SUREIT LOOKS DAMN GOOD

SO THAT I CAN IMPRESSTHE JUDGES...

- OKAY.- AND WIN THIS THING.

- LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR.- MM-HMM.

- I DO NOT CAREIF YOU GO HOME.

I DON'T CAREIF YOU LOSE OR WIN.

THIS IS GOINGON MY BODY.

- DON'T THINK THAT I'MSITTING HERE ARGUING WITH YOU,

'CAUSE THAT'S NOTWHAT I'M DOING.

- NO, I'M EXPLAINING.YOUR STATUS IN THE COMPETITION

IS NONEOF MY [bleep] CONCERN.

- WHAT THE HELLAM I SUPPOSED TO DO?

I'VE LEFT MY FAMILYTO COME HERE TO WIN.

AND THIS GUY'SGONNA COME IN MY ROOM

AND TELL METHAT HE DOESN'T GIVE A [bleep]

AND ALL HE WANTSIS HIS FREE TATTOO.

I'M SCREWED.

- STOMACH TATTOO, HUH?I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT.

- WELL, IF YOU KNEWI COULD DO IT,

WHY WOULDN'T YOU GIVE ITTO SOMEBODY ELSE THAT COULDN'T?

- THAT WOULDN'T BE NO FUN.

YEAH, I WAS GIGGLINGA LITTLE BIT.

I WAS LIKE, "OH, MAN, SAUSAGE ISGONNA HAVE HIS WORK CUT OUT."

- YEAH, YOU DIDN'TGIVE A [bleep] ABOUT ME

OR THE COMPETITIONOR ANYTHING ELSE.

- REALLY?SAUSAGE IS TOTALLY BUTTHURT,

AND HE'S POUTING A LOT.

- ARTISTS, YOU HAVE SIX HOURS

TO TATTOOA BLACK-AND-GRAY DEMON,

AND YOUR TIME BEGINS NOW.

- STAND NICE AND STILL.- ALL RIGHT.

- LET'S DO IT.

- THE DIFFICULTYIN CREATING NEGATIVE SPACE

IN A BLACK-AND-GRAY TATTOO

IS THE ARTIST UNDERSTANDINGWHERE THE LIGHT'S SUPPOSED TO BE

AND BEING ABLE TO DOREALLY SMOOTH, GRADUAL FADES

LEADING UP TO THAT LIGHT

TO CREATETHAT NICE, BEAUTIFUL HIGHLIGHT.

- PERFECT.- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS, BRO?

- THIS IS NOT GONNA WORK.I'M REALLY DISAPPOINTED,

'CAUSE I REALLY WANTEDTHAT PILLAR.

- JUST THE PILLAROR IS IT EVERYTHING ELSE TOO?

MY CANVAS DOESN'T WANTTO WORK WITH ME.

HE DOESN'T GIVE A [bleep].

- THIS IS NOT WHAT WE DISCUSSEDAT ALL.

THIS IS NOT WHAT WE DISCUSSEDAT ALL. THIS IS NOT THE PICTURE.

- YEAH, IT IS.- NO, IT'S NOT.

- I WILL TATTOO MYSELFTO STAY IN THIS COMPETITION,

BUT THE LAST THING I'M GONNATATTOO ON MYSELF IS A DEMON.

BEING A NEW MAN OF FAITH,

THAT GOESAGAINST MY RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

WHEN I LOOK UP PILLAR,THERE'S THIS KIND OF PILLAR.

IS THIS WHAT YOU WEREKIND OF HOPING FOR THEN TOO?

- I WAS KIND OF HOPINGTHAT YOU WOULD DO IT.
