The test on accuracy continues as the artists get started on their portrait tattoos. While Tatu Baby excels in her specialty, Kyle is worried that his canvas’s wrinkles may result in a not-so-flattering tattoo design.

- YOU THINK IT WAS STUPID FOR METO TAKE THIS ONE?

- IT'S A TOUGH ONE.

IT'S GOT A LOTOF CONTRAST.

- YEAH.- I WOULD GO IN AND ADD

A LITTLE BIT OF WHITEHIGHLIGHTS TO THE HAIR.

LIKE, YOU CAN BARELY SEETHE [bleep] DETAILS IN THERE.

- JUST 'CAUSE HAIR IS BLACKDOESN'T MEAN IT'S JET BLACK.

JIME DOESN'T DO PORTRAITS,

SO HE HAS NO IDEAWHAT HE'S DOING.

I'M JUST SAYINGLIGHTEN IT UP,

JUST SO YOU CAN PUTLITTLE WHITE HIGHLIGHTS.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?- MM-HMM.

THIS IS MOREOF HIS AREA OF EXPERTISE.

I'M DEFINITELY GONNA ACCEPTJOEY'S OPINIONS ON THIS ONE,

BECAUSE RIGHT NOWI'M WORRIED AS [bleep].

- YOU HAVE SIX HOURSTO TATTOO AN ACCURATE PORTRAIT.

IF IT DOESN'T LOOKLIKE THE PHOTO,

YOU'LL BE PACKING.

AND YOUR TIME STARTS NOW.

- LET'S DO IT. ALL RIGHT.- COME ON, BROTHER.

- ALL RIGHT,COME OVER HERE FOR ME.

- OUR BIG KEYWORD THIS WEEKIS "ACCURACY."

AND THAT FALLS IN PERFECTLYWITH A PORTRAIT,

'CAUSE WE'RE COPYINGTHE EXACT LIKENESS OF SOMEONE.

SO ANY INACCURACIESARE GONNA ACTUALLY CHANGE

WHO THAT PERSON IS.- I LIKE IT.

YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO BE ABLETO PASS THIS CHALLENGE.

- YEAH, THIS IS GOOD,RIGHT, MA?

- YEAH. LIKE THAT--YEAH.- YOU SEE IT?

- TO NOT SOUND TOO MUCHLIKE A BIG TATTOO NERD,

MY FAVORITE THINGABOUT THIS PHOTO

IS ALL THESE DETAILSIN THE WRINKLES

AND THE TEETHAND THE WHITE HIGHLIGHTS.

PERFECT.THIS IS GONNA BE PERFECT.

THE DETAIL AND RESOLUTIONON THIS PICTURE IS SO GOOD

THAT I KNOWI CAN KNOCK THIS OUT.

- NO TURNING BACK.

- I TOLD JOSHUATHAT I WAS BETTER THAN HIM.

THIS IS MY CHANCETO REALLY PROVE IT.

- ALL RIGHT, YOU READY?- MM-HMM.

[needle buzzing]

- I'M DEFINITELY AIMINGAT BEATING TATU BABY TODAY.

SHE'S TOLD ME THAT SHECAN TATTOO WHATEVER I TATTOO,

BUT BETTER--I WANT TO PROVE HER WRONG.

- YOU CAN GO NEXT.- NO.

I ALWAYS HAVE FEAROF NEEDLES.

- EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES.- YEAH.

- [laughs]

- AFTER LOOKING AT ALL THE AREASFOR THIS TATTOO,

WE DECIDED THE ONLY SPOTTHAT'S GONNA WORK NICE

IS ON HIS BICEP.

HAVING A FACE, LIKE,RIGHT HERE I THINK IS PERFECT.

- JOSHUA'S HAS THIS REALLY LONG,FLOWING HAIR,

AND HE ENDED UPGIVING HER A BOB CUT.

DOESN'T SHOW ACCURACY.

ONCE AGAIN, HE'S JUSTHALF-ASSING ANOTHER TATTOO.

JOSH JUST NEEDS TO PACKHIS BAGS AND GO HOME.

- I DEFINITELY WANT TO WINTHIS CHALLENGE.

I'VE WON MANY AWARDSDOING PORTRAITS.

- I HOPE THE JUDGESDON'T CRITIQUE IT TOO BADLY.

"NAH, IT'S [bleep] BAD."- [chuckles]

- I TATTOO DARKERON MY PORTRAITS,

BECAUSE I WANT ITTO LOOK GOOD IN TEN YEARS.

I'M HERE TO WIN.

I'M NOT HERE TO TAKEA SECOND SEAT TO ANYBODY.

- FOUR HOURS LEFT, ARTISTS.

- WOW.WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- I LOVE IT.- OH, MY GOD.

- WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- I WISH I LOOKED LIKE THAT.[both laugh]

- I NEED TO PROVETHAT I CAN DO OTHER THINGS.

IT'S GONNA BE A BIG FEATIN ITSELF TODAY

IF I CAN MAKE IT PASTTHIS POINT

AS ONE OFTHE NEW-SCHOOL KIDS.

- SO DO YOU DO MUCH, LIKE,REALISM PORTRAITS?

- I WOULD SAY ALMOSTABSOLUTELY NOT AT ALL.

- OH, LOOK AT DAVE.

- SO WHAT'D YOU DO--LIKE, BLACK TEARS OR SOMETHING?

- YEAH.

- JIME SHOULD HAVE WENTVERY SIMPLE AND BOLD,

BUT I THINK HE'S TRYINGTO FLOURISH IT UP

AND DETAIL IT OUTAND GIVE IT A LITTLE MORE WOW.

AND I THINKTHAT WAS THE WRONG DECISION.

- SOMEHOW, I WIPEDHIS ENTIRE RIGHT EYE

OFF OF MY STENCIL.

MY PATTERN IS GOING AWAY,

ESPECIALLY ON THE AREAS WHEREI DON'T NEED IT TO GO AWAY.

IF YOU LOSEPART OF YOUR STENCIL,

99.999% OF THE TIME,YOU'RE [bleep].

YOU DO NOT WANT TO TRYTO FREEHAND SOMETHING ON A FACE.

- JUST DID ONE EYE.

- AS IF IT WASN'TBAD ENOUGH,

THIS GUY'S SITTING THEREWATCHING ME [bleep] UP.

I NEED TO FIX THIS.

- YOU'RE NOT, LIKE,OVER HIS SHOULDER WATCHING?

- ONE MORE HOUR TO GO,EVERYBODY.

[needle buzzing]

- WE DECIDE WE'RE GONNATATTOO IT ON HER CALF.

SHE'S NOT A BIG GIRL,AND IT'S A LOT OF DETAIL

IN A SMALL SPOT.

EVERY WRINKLE,EVERY STRAND OF HAIR,

EVERY EYELASH IS GOINGINTO THIS TATTOO.

- I CAN'T BELIEVE THE WORKTHAT GOES INTO THIS.

- I HAVE TO AT LEAST TRYTO TAKE THIS HOME FOR MY FAMILY.

I CAN'T KEEP BEINGTHE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL.

- MAKE SURE YOU TELL HIMIF HE'S DOING SOMETHING WRONG.

- KYLE'S LOOKS LIKEA BALL OF RAISINS

KIND OF, LIKE,SMASHED TOGETHER.

IS THAT HORRIBLEFOR ME TO SAY?

HE SHOULD BE TRYINGTO SOFTEN HER FACE

AND JUST SHOW THE MAIN SHAPESOF HER FACE

RATHER THAN EVERY,SINGLE [bleep] WRINKLE.

- 15 MINUTES!

- I WAS ABLE TO RE-STICKTHE DESIGN BACK INTO PLACE,

BUT I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

ALMOST DONE.

THERE'S A LOT OF DETAILIN THIS THING.

I'M SCREWED.

- TEN, NINE,

EIGHT, SEVEN,

SIX, FIVE, FOUR,

THREE, TWO, ONE...

THAT'S IT.TIME'S UP. MACHINES DOWN.

NO MORE INK.

- HOW YOU FEELING--GOOD?

- I FEEL GOOD.- ALL RIGHT.

WE'LL SEE HOW YOU FEELAFTER YOU LOOK AT IT.

- OH, KYLE, I LOVE IT.

[crying]OH, MA.

I LOVE YOU.

- I LOVE YOU TOO.

- OH, IT'S PERFECT.

- I LOVE IT.

- JIME DIDN'T FOLLOWTHAT PHOTOGRAPH

EXACTLY HOW IT IS.

HE DROPPED THE BALL ON IT.

IT'S DEFINITELY NICE TO SEEA WEAKNESS IN JIME.
