OF THE ENTIRE THING,

WITH THE WINGS BEINGREALLY BEVELED AND DEEP.

IN THE BODY HERE,I WOULD'VE WANTED TO SEE

SOME DETAILON THAT FEATHER.

- TATU BABY.

IT'S A LITTLE ROUGH, MAN.IT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE

YOU USED A TOOLTO CARVE THAT IN.

NOT A LOT OF DETAILON THE PUPPY.

LETTERING LOOKSA LITTLE JANKY.

- KINDA WAVER A LITTLE BIT,AND LOOK A LITTLE CHOPPY.

- THIS IS ONE OFTHE MESSIER ONES.

- MOST OF US COULD'VE CARVEDINTO A PICNIC BENCH

WITH A POCKET KNIFE SOMETHINGBETTER THAN WHAT SHE DID.

IT'S NO BUENO.

- LALO.

- I LIKE HOW DEEPTHE LETTERING IS,

IT LOOKS VERY HARD AND CHISELED,BUT THE BACKGROUND,

THE LACK OF DETAIL.

HE TOOK A COMPLETELYDIFFERENT APPROACH AT IT.

IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKEA WOOD BRAND.

- DEFINITELY PUT JAMIEAT THE TOP OF THE PACK.

MARK.

- EXECUTION OF THE LINESWAS SO SKETCHY,

AND THE BACKGROUND HE PUT ON ITJUST [bleep] THAT GUN UP.

- TATU BABY.- WORST ONE OF THE LOT.

THE DOG LOOKED LIKE AFOUR-YEAR-OLD'S CRAYON SCRIBBLE.

AND LET ME [bleep]DRIVE THE BUS.

THAT'S WHAT I'M HERETO DO.

HE'S LAYINGSTILL AS A BOARD.

I'VE BEEN WORRIED ABOUT WOWINGTHE JUDGES WITH HUGE TATTOOS.

I WOULD NEVER TRYTO DO A FACE THAT SMALL.

- JESSE'SJUST DOESN'T HAVE

REALLY SMOOTHBLACK AND GREY SKILLS.

HE'S HAVING A REALLY HARD TIMEGETTING THE SHADING.

THAT'S IT, TIME'S UP.MACHINES DOWN. NO MORE INK.

- ALL RIGHT,WE BETTER WIN THIS [bleep].

LET'S DO THIS.

I FEEL LIKE I DROPPED THE BALLON THIS ONE.

THIS TATTOOCOULD DEFINITELY

IT LOOKS TOO DARK.THE AREAS THAT I WAS TRYING

TO GET THE TIGHT DETAIL IN,MISSED THE MARK.

I COULD VERY WELLBE GOING HOME.

[bleep]!

[sighs]

- YOUR TATTOOWAS [bleep] TOO DARK,

BUT THEY DID NOT SAY [bleep]ABOUT HERS!

- HERE'S THE PROBLEM, MAN,IF YOU LOOK AT THAT HAND,

AND DON'T THINKIT LOOKS [bleep],

THEN THAT'S THE PROBLEM!

- KAY'S BEEN SO COMBATATIVEWITH EVERYBODY,

HE'S GOOD AT [bleep] TALKING,BASICALLY.

- KAY'S PLAYINGA GOOD GAME.

- LIKE, I DIDN'T THINKHE WAS GONNA MAKE IT THIS FAR.

I THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA BE GONEON THE THIRD WEEK.

- I MEAN, HE'S PROBABLY PLAYINGMORE OF A STRATEGIC GAME

THAN ANY OF US ARE.

- HE'S THE ONETHAT HAS TO.

HE'S WORRIEDABOUT EVERYBODY ELSE.

THERE'S WHERETHE FLAW IN HIS GAME.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS,"YOU DESERVE TO GO HOME,

I'M GONNA HELP YOUGO HOME."

IT'S TIMEFOR HIM TO GO.

HE'S LOUD,I'M THE SAME WAY.

DIFFERENCE IS, I'M LOUD'CAUSE I'M INTELLIGENT.

[laughter]

- THIS WEEK,WE ASKED YOU TO TATTOO A PINUP

AS GORGEOUS AS THE REAL THING,BASED SOLELY ON YOUR PHOTOS.

WE WERE TESTINGYOUR ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

SARAH,LET'S START WITH YOU.

HOW WAS THE PHOTO SHOOTFOR YOU?

- I TEND TO TRY AND WORKA LITTLE BIT MORE ONE-ON-ONE

WITH THE MODEL, BUT I THINKWHAT HAPPENED WAS PRETTY GOOD.

- IT'S A BEAUTIFUL TATTOO,

BUT I HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMSWITH IT.

HER LEGS LOOK SQUATTY.

- IF YOU LOOK ATA HULA DANCER,

THEIR LEGS ARE REALLY,REALLY THICK.

- PINUP CLASS 101,YOU MAKE THE LEGS

A LITTLE LONGERTHAN THEY REALLY SHOULD BE,

'CAUSE IT'S AESTHETICALLYPLEASING.

IF YOU WOULDELONGATE THOSE LEGS,

AND STRETCHHER BODY OUT,

IT'D GIVE HERA LITTLE MORE SEXY FEEL.

- I LIKE WHAT I DID.

- THE PROBLEM THAT I HAVEIN THE FACE,

IS THAT ONE BUCK TOOTH.

IT LOOKS LIKE JUST ONE TOOTHSTICKING OUT OF THE LIP,

AND ITTHROWS THE FACE OFF.

I KNOWYOU'RE GOING FOR THE DETAIL,

BUT WHEN YOU WORK THAT HARDON THE FACE,

AND PUT THAT MUCHINTO IT,

SOMETIMES IN THAT LITTLE AREA,LESS IS MORE.

- TATU BABY.

THE PIE BEING HELD LIKE THAT,WHY DID YOU MAKE THAT CHOICE?

- MY CLIENT TELLS MEHE'S AN ASS MAN.

HE WANTS THE PINUP TO BEFROM THE REAR,

BUT STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TOSEE HER HOLDING THE PIE.

- THE PIE BUGS ME.

YOU'RE NOT GONNA HOLD THE PIEUP ON ITS END.

I DON'T CAREABOUT THE PIE,

'CAUSE I CAN'T STOP LOOKINGAT THE ASS.

IT TAKES A LOT OF GUTSTO GO INTO A FACE THAT DARK

AND COMMIT TO THAT.A LOT OF PEOPLE IN HERE

ARE SCARED TO PUT SHADINGWHERE IT BELONGS AND OWN IT.

YOU ARE NOT.I LOVE THIS TATTOO.

I THINKYOU DID A GREAT JOB.

- THANKS.

- CLINT.

I [bleep] LOVETHIS THING.

I LOVE ALL THE DETAIL,I LOVE ALL THE TATTOOS,

AND SHE'S SEXY AS HELL.

- THE THINGS THAT STAND OUT:THE FACE, THE SHOES, THE HANDS,

ALL THE THINGS THAT PEOPLESTRUGGLE WITH, YOU NAILED IT.

- YOU DID GOOD, MAN.IT'S A COOL ONE,

AND I LIKEYOUR FIGHTING STYLE.

- I'M NOT GIVING UP.I KNOW WHERE I BELONG.

I KNOW WHAT I CAN DO.

- YOU'VE SHOWED USYOUR TECHNICAL TATTOOING.

NOW, IT'S JUST A MATTEROF GETTING YOUR DRAWING RIGHT.

- YEAH, AND I THINKIT'S A LOT BETTER FOR ME

IF I JUST, INSTEAD OF TRYINGGO OUT OF MY ELEMENT,

JUST DO WHAT I DO.

- LALO.

- THIS ISA DETAIL CHALLENGE.

WE'RE HERE LOOKING FORFINE LINE DETAILS.

THIS TATTOO HASVERY LITTLE DETAIL AT ALL.

THE LITTLE STRAP OF HER DRESSIS JUST SCRITCHY-SCRATCH LINES

THAT DON'T CONNECT.

- I HATE TO SAY THIS,BUT I RAN OUT OF TIME.

- NOW, IF WE LOOK AT THE HANDTHAT SHE'S HOLDING UP,

YOU TRIED TO PUT A LITTLE DETAILIN HER FINGERNAILS,

BUT THE FINGERNAILSARE, LIKE,

GROWING OFF THE TIP OFHER FINGER LIKE THEY'RE CLAWS,

AND THIS IS PROBABLYTHE UGLIEST FACE OF THE DAY.

DAMN!IT'S KILLING ME.

I'M TRYINGNOT TO LOSE MY MIND.

- I KNOW THE FACE DIDN'TCOME OUT AS I WAS EXPECTED.

- THIS IS A BAD, BAD TIMETO DROP THE BALL,

AND TO COME INWITH THIS?

THERE'S OTHER PEOPLETHAT SHOULD PROBABLY GO HOME,

BUT THEY MIGHT GETA SECOND CHANCE,

JUST 'CAUSEYOU [bleep] UP.

- JESSE.

EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONEHAS BEEN EXTREMELY DETAILED,

AND THEN HERE'STHE DETAIL CHALLENGE,

AND SOWE DON'T HAVE IT.

THAT'S JUST WEIRD, DUDE.WHAT HAPPENED?

- EVEN BACKWHEN I USED TO DO PINUPS,

I WOULD NEVERDO A PINUP THIS SMALL.

- IT'S THE TRICK.YOU CAN STILL SHOW THE DETAIL

IN WHATEVER SIZE THE TATTOOWOULD BE.

SAYING THAT IT'S TOO SMALL,I'M NOT BUYING IT.

HER RIGHT HANDIS JUST ANOTHER ONE

OF THE TOTALLY JACKED HANDSTHAT WE HAVE.

YOU LOST IT ON THIS.

- GODDAMN, THIS THINGLOOKS LIKE IT HURTS.

IT IS SO RED AND JUST BEATTHAT IT LOOKS PAINFUL.

IT LOOKS LIKEYOU TOOK WATER

AND MARKED OUTWHERE YOU WERE GONNA SHADE,

AND THEN TRIED TO RUN SHADINGOVER THE TOP OF IT.

YOU SHOULD BE THAT GUYTHAT CAN DO IT ALL.

HOW CAN'T YOU DOTHESE BASICS?

- JAMIE.

SO WHAT DIDYOUR CLIENT WANT?

- A FOOTBALL PLAYER PINUPON HIS RIBS.

- THIS JERSEY AND THIS OUTFITIS AWESOME.

- I LIKE THE ATTENTION TO DETAILIN THE FACE.

YOU SHOWED PEOPLE IN THIS ROOMHOW TO DO A FACE.

YOU DID SIMPLE HAIR,BUT YOU DID NICE STRANDS IN IT.

- I'M BACK IN MY GROOVE,I THINK.

- YOU DID IT ON THE RIBS.IT'S JUST AS CLEAN

ON THE RIBSAS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

ON THE ARM,AND THAT SHOWS US

THAT YOU KNOWWHAT YOU'RE DOING.

- SEBASTIAN.

YOU DID A GREAT, NICE,DETAILED OUTFIT,

I JUST WISH THERE WASA HOT CHICK WEARING IT.

SHE IS ROUGH-LOOKING,MAN.

- THE CROSS BETWEEN THE HOT,YOUNG GIRL WITH VOLUPTUOUS TITS,

AND THE OLD LADYIN THE HANDS AND THE THROAT,

IT'S WEIRD-LOOKINGTO ME.

I FEEL LIKE,AT 14 YEARS OF TATTOOING,

YOU KNOWHOW TO DO A PINUP GIRL.

- I DON'T DO PINUPSREALLY.

I MEAN, THAT'S NOT SOMETHINGTHAT I GET.

- SO WHAT HAVE YOU DONEFOR 14 YEARS?

- I DOA LOT OF PORTRAITS.

- IF YOU DO PORTRAITS,YOU KNOW HOW TO DO HAIR.

THERE WAS NO DETAILIN THAT HAIR.

- I DID WHAT I SAW.

- NO, BECAUSE I KNOWYOU CAN DO BETTER.

- I'M GLAD I'M GETTING RID OFTHE STUFF I'M NOT THAT GREAT AT.

- MAN,IT'S INK MASTER.

YOU HAVE TO BE THAT GUYTHAT CAN DO IT ALL.

I LOOKED AT YOU AS A GUYWHO WAS GONNA GIVE

A COUPLE OF THE OTHER GUYSTHE RUN.

WE HAVE ISSUES.

- MARK.

- THERE'S BEEN A FEW TATTOOSYOU'VE DONE IN THIS COMPETITION

WHERE WE'VE SAIDIT LOOKED LIKE A COVER-UP.

THIS TIME, YOU ACTUALLY DIDA COVER-UP OF YOUR OWN DETAIL.

THE DETAIL IN THE JACKET,THE BOOTS,

THE HAIR, THE CIGARETTE,NOW THE TATTOO'S DONE,

CAN'T SEE ANY OF IT.

- MAN, THAT WASA TEN-HOUR DAY FOR US.

MY HANDWAS KILLING ME.

I WAS BEATTHE [bleep] UP.

I BROKE MY THUMBRIGHT BEFORE I CAME IN.

I COMPLETELY UNDERESTIMATEDHOW MUCH IT WAS GONNA AFFECT ME.

- IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKEBEING HERE, THROW IN THE TOWEL.

YOU OWE YOUR CLIENTS.YOU OWE THE PERSON

THAT YOU'RE GONNAPUT SOMETHING ON FOREVER

THE RESPECTTHAT YOU DEMAND FOR YOURSELF,

BUT IF YOU CAN'T RUNA CLEAN OUTLINE,

THEN PLEASE DON'T.

- STEVE.

- YOU DID THIS NAVY PINUP.WHY DID YOU SELECT HIM?

- I'M FROM A NAVY TOWN,HE WAS IN THE NAVY,

HE WANTED BLACK AND GREY,SO IT JUST SEEMED TO FIT.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU WEREABLE TO PACK SO MUCH DETAIL

INTO SUCH A SIMPLE DESIGN.

- THIS IS HOWIT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DONE.

THIS IS THE RIGHT WAYTO SHADE A FIGURE.

USE THE LIGHT AND DARK.

YOU REALLY ARETHE SHINING EXAMPLE

FOR HOW TO DO A PINUPIN THIS FIELD.

- IT LOOKS BADASS, MAN.

- KAY KUTTA.

- OVERALL,THIS TATTOO'S A MESS.

WE GOTTA TALK ABOUTTHE DETAIL.

THERE'S A LOT OF SHAKY LINESIN HERE,

HER RIGHT HANDIS WONKY AS HELL.

HER FINGER GETS BIGGERAT THE TIP OF THE FINGER

THAN IT ISAT THE BASE OF THE FINGER.

- WHICH FINGERARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

- THAT BIG-ASS[bleep] WEIRD FINGER

HANGING DOWN THERE.LOOK AT THAT HAND.

- WHICH ONE WE TALKING ABOUT,THE RIGHT HAND?

- THE ONE THAT LOOKSTOTALLY [bleep] UP.

- CLOSEST TO YOU.- YOU DON'T TELL ME

THAT HANDDON'T LOOK [bleep] UP?

- I CAN'T REALLY SEEWHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

- I DON'T--- GIVE ME A [bleep] BREAK!

- THE BIG ONE.THE THIRD ONE.

- LOOK AT THIS HAND!- THAT'S HER RING FINGER.

HER HAND IS BENT LIKE--HER HAND IS BENT LIKE THIS.

- IF YOU DON'T--IF YOU--HERE'S THE PROBLEM, MAN,

IF YOU LOOK AT THAT HAND, ANDDON'T THINK IT LOOKS [bleep]...

- I THINK THE OUTLINE--- THEN THAT'S THE PROBLEM!

- I THINK THE OUTLINE IS--- THERE IS OUR MAJOR PROBLEM.

- I CAN'T SAY THATTHAT HAND IS [bleep] UP.

- THE FACT THAT I CAN SAYTHIS HAND IS JACKED,

AND YOU STAND HERE AND SAY,"I DON'T THINK IT IS,"

YOU GOT TO START OVERAND LEARN.

- FROM HERE ON OUT,THERE'S NO MORE FORGIVENESS.

THESE KIND OF FUNDAMENTALSARE NOT GONNA

BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUIN THIS COMPETITION.

- HEAD BACKTO THE LOFT.

WE'LL CALL YOU BACKWHEN WE'VE MADE OUR DECISION.

- THEY WERE WAY MOREHARSH ON ME

THAN THEY WEREON OTHER PEOPLE.

- AT THE END OF THE DAY,THEY STILL HOLD YOU

IN VERY HIGH REGARDS.

- THEY DIDN'T LIKE IT.

- THEY TORE PEOPLETHE [bleep] UP,

AND YOU'RE MAD?

- THEIR JOBIS TO PICK IT APART.

- IF THEY SAY NOTHING, THEN--- BUT IT'S NOT FAIR!

THEY PICK APARTONE PERSON'S,

AND THEY DON'T PICK APARTANOTHER PERSON'S

THAT HASTHE EXACT SAME THINGS IN IT.

LIKE, THEY CALLED ME OUTON THE DARK SHADING ON THE FACE,

AND THEY DIDN'TCALL YOU OUT.

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN?- YEAH.

YOUR TATTOOWAS [bleep] TOO DARK.

I JUST DON'T THINKIT'S [bleep] FAIR

THE WAY THATTHE CRITIQUES ARE.

I [bleep] FOUGHT HARDFOR THIS.

BUT--THE SAME THINGS--

IF YOU WANT TOTHROW SOME BLOOD ON ME,

IT JUST SHOWS METHAT YOUR TATTOO WAS UGLY,

LIKE, WHAT DO YOU WANT METO SAY? YOU'RE RIGHT.

YOU'RE RIGHT. THAT FACE,YEAH, IT'S [bleep] UP.

WHAT AM I GONNA SAY?

I HATE TO BE OUTWITH A LOT OF EXCUSES.

THAT'S WHYI DON'T SAY ANYTHING, YEAH.
