Ally Lee struggles with her design while Josh seeks to prove himself with a difficult challenge of his own.

- HEY, BABY.

SO THE GUY WANTS TO DO GREEN,YOU KNOW, IN HERE.

I WAS GONNA DO YELLOW,LIKE, HERE.

- WELL, YOU DON'T WANTTO KEEP IT TOO BUSY.

- OR IF WE DOTHE YELLOWS IN HERE,

THAT'S WHAT I'M THINKING.- YEAH, I DON'T RECOMMEND THAT.

LOOKING AT ALLY'S TATTOO,

SHE DEFINITELY GOT ONEOF THE MOST STANDARD DESIGNS,

BUT ALLY SEEMS TO BE STRUGGLINGWITH THIS ONE.

- WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?- I WOULD RECOMMEND EITHER,

LIKE,A GRAYISH OR A BROWNISH,

'CAUSE THAT'S GONNALOOK TOO BRIGHT.

- THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

MY DESIGN ISN'T AS GOODAS IT COULD BE.

I'M DEFINITELY WORRIED.

- ARTISTS, YOU HAVE SIX HOURSTO CREATE A CELTIC TATTOO.

ONE BAD LINE,AND YOU'RE SCREWED.

YOUR TIME BEGINS NOW.

- ALL RIGHT.- READY.

- COME ON, BUDDY.- ALL RIGHT.

- CELTIC IS THE EPITOMEOF LINE WORK FOR THE SIMPLE FACT

THAT ALL THE LINESHAVE TO BE PARALLEL,

PERFECTLY STRAIGHTON BOTH SIDES,

SAME LINE WEIGHT,SAME THICKNESS.

IT'S A STYLETHAT ALL PROFICIENT TATTOOERS

SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO.

- MY CANVAS WAS EXTREMELYSPECIFIC ON WHAT HE WANTS.

- YOU GOT THE KNOTSEXACTLY THE WAY I WANTED THEM.

- I HAD TO REDRAWQUITE A BIT.

I PUT THE 13sIN THE BACKGROUND

SO THAT IT DOESN'TMESS WITH THE CROSS ITSELF.

- YOU NAILED IT.

- LINES HAVE TO BE PERFECT.

ARE YOU READY?

[rock music]

[tattoo gun buzzing]

- I'M GONNA GOFOR AS BARE BONES

OF A TRADITIONAL CELTIC DESIGNAS I CAN.

I WANT TO DOREALLY LIGHT SHADING ON IT.

I NEED TO REDEEM MYSELF.

- FOUR HOURS REMAINING.

[tattoo guns buzzing]

- AHH...[breathing heavily]

- MY CANVAS WANTSA CELTIC STARFISH ON HER SIDE.

IT'S REALLY, REALLY NICEAND FITS YOU REALLY WELL.

I LIKE IT A LOT.

I'M GONNA FOCUS ON MAKING SURETHAT ALL MY LINES

ARE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

- HOW ARE YOU DOING HERE,MR. QUIET MACHINES?

- MY BACK HURTS.- UH-HUH.

- AND I HAVE AROUND,LIKE, 1,000 LINES.

- RIGHT.- THAT'S ABOUT MY DAY.

DUDE, MAYBE YOU SHOULD GOAND FINISH YOUR TATTOO.

- LOOKS WONDERFUL.

- WHAT A SWEETHEART.

- I'M DOING A REALISTIC ELEPHANTAT THE TOP,

AND GOING TO A CELTIC DESIGNAT THE BOTTOM.

POTENTIALLY,I CAN BE THE NEW INK MASTER.

I TOTALLY FEEL I CAN WIN IT,ALMOST SOMEWHAT DESTINY.

IT'S NOT GONNA BEA EASY CAKE WALK EITHER.

DEFINITELY GONNA HAVETO FIGHT FOR IT.

- HOPEFULLY, ONE OF THESE DAYS,I'M GONNA GET TO TRY

TO SHOW OFF LIKE YOU.[laughter]

- CRAIG'S TATTOO IS JUSTA PAINTERLY STYLE TATTOO

WITH SOME CELTIC IN IT,WHICH I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO DO,

BUT I FELT LIKE THISWAS A LINE WORK CHALLENGE.

- I'VE GOT A BIG TATTOO TO DO,AND TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.

I'M PULLINGSTUPID-LOOKING LINES.

THEY'RE CROSSING OVER.

I FEEL LIKEA BEGINNING TATTOOER.

I DON'T EVEN KNOWWHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.

- HOLY MACKEREL!GETTING BIG WITH IT.

- THIS IS NOT GONNATURN OUT WELL.

THERE'S JUST NO GOODOUTLINE QUALITY ABOUT THIS,

AND THE DESIGNOF THIS ENTIRE TATTOO

IS JUST MUDDY AND JUMBLEDAND LOST.

LATER, GUYS.

- I'M MAKING POOR DECISIONSWITH MY DESIGN.

I NEED TO SIMPLIFYTHESE TATTOOS.

- TWO HOURS TO GO.

[tattoo guns buzzing]

- [winces]

- I DIDN'T DO SO WELLIN THE FLASH CHALLENGE,

AND NOWI HAVE TO REDEEM MYSELF.

- OH, MY GOD.

I DEFINITELY FEEL LIKETHIS IS AN OVERAMBITIOUS TATTOO.

I'M TRYING TO MAKE LEMONADEOUT OF LEMONS.

- UGH.[inhales sharply]

THAT [bleep] HURTSSO BAD.

- I HAVE TO STAY FOCUSEDON WHAT I'M DOING.

I'M IN IT.I'M IN MY ZONE.

- [exhales]

- GOT THE BIG CROSS?- YEP.

- ALLY'S LINE WORKIS JUST VERY UNCLEAN.

IT'S GOT BLOWOUTS,WHICH IS

WHEN THE INK ACTUALLYGOES UNDER THE SKIN

IN A WRONG DIRECTION

AND CREATES, LIKE,A BRUISING EFFECT.

THAT'S NO GOOD.

- I'M NOT USED TO BLOWOUTS.

I TRIEDTURNING THE MACHINE DOWN.

I TRIED GOING LIGHTER.

I'M OFF MY GAMEIN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.

- 30 MINUTES TO GO.

- I SPENT SO MUCH TIMEON MAKING MY LINES CLEAN.

I'M VERY NERVOUSTHAT I'M NOT GOING TO FINISH.

- I'M GONNA HAVE TO REALLYSIMPLIFY THE COLOR WORK ON IT,

AND HOPEFULLY,I CAN GET DONE WITH IT.

- TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN,

SIX, FIVE, FOUR,

THREE, TWO, ONE...

THAT'S IT.MACHINES DOWN.

NO MORE INK.

- YOU LIKE IT?

- IT'S EVEN BETTERTHAN I IMAGINED.

- IT IS SO AMAZING.- YUP.

- THAT IS SICK.

- ONCE AGAIN,I RUSHED THIS DAMN TATTOO.

MY LINE WORK IS [bleep].IT'S NOT SMOOTH.

I DON'T TATTOO LIKE THIS.

I JUST DON'T EVENFEEL LIKE MYSELF ANYMORE.
