Rivals Match-up: "He Disrespected Her on Her Home Turf," versus Aaron Is
Emily Elegado spent three years completing a traditional tattoo apprenticeship before taking on her own clients. Other than her work in realism, Elegado considers herself infamous for having an in-your-face attitude. She enters the competition with a distaste for Aaron Is, the Tampa tattooist she first met when he did a guest spot at her shop. Elegado felt that Is had absolutely no respect for the industry, and matters were only made worse by his dating Elegado's co-worker.
