Rivals Match-up: "Ink Master Fight Full Circle," versus Erik Siuda
Don Peddicord is a self-made man who has learned to turn struggle into triumph, going from an unsuccessful apprenticeship to co-owning his own tattoo shop, where he specializes in neo-traditional, portraiture and realism styles. After a motorcycle accident left Peddicord severely injured, doctors estimated that he would not be able to walk again for over six months, but Peddicord persevered and proved the doctors wrong, doing so in less than three. Peddicord is challenged by Erik Siuda, the versatile New York shop owner he met during casting for season two. Neither man was able to stand the other's arrogance over what each perceives to be subpar work.
