Ink Master

Spike gets under viewers’ skin with “Ink Master,” the network’s hit tattoo competition reality series.  Some of the nation’s top tattoo artists battle it out in permanent ink for a $100,000 cash prize, an editorial feature in the preeminent tattoo magazine Inked and the title of ‘Ink Master.’

“Ink Master” contestants compete in various tattoo challenges that not only test the artists’ technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, where they must create and execute an original tattoo on command.  Challenges focus on different tattooing techniques, such as shading, line and proportion, and styles including photorealism, Tribal, American traditional, and pin-up
