MAKING ART THE CUSTOMER'SGONNA BE HAPPY WITH

THAT YOU CAN FINISHWITHIN THE TIME PERIOD.

- JIM.

- THE LETTERING IS SUPER CRISP.

IT STANDS APART FROM THE LION.

THIS IS PERFECTFOR WHAT THIS CLIENT ASKED FOR.

- JAY.

- ADAPTABILITYIS ALL ABOUT WALK-INS,

SO I JUST WENT AT ITTHE WAY I USED TO TAKE WALK-INS,

NO REFERENCE,JUST DRAW IT UP AND GO.

- IT IS A LITTLE OFFIN THE SHAPE AND THE DESIGN.

A LITTLE BIT OF REFERENCEWOULD'VE HELPED YOU OUT.

- MELISSA.- WHEN YOU HAVE LETTERING

MIXED IN WITH THE DESIGN,

THE LETTERINGNEEDS TO BE BOLDER

TO MAKE IT STAND APARTFROM EVERY OTHER LINE.

- SAUSAGE.

- THIS STYLE OF LETTERINGYOU CHOSE,

IT FITS THE IMAGEBECAUSE IT GIVES US

THAT THRASHER DESIGN AESTHETIC.IT'S A GREAT JOB.

- THIS GUY WANTEDA BADASS DESIGN

AND HE GOT DESIGNTHAT YOU WOULD SEE

ON A LITTLE KID'S LUNCH BOX.

- LYDIA, WHERE DID YOU GETTHIS FONT FROM?

- HE LOVES TRIBAL.I WANTED TO DO SCRIPT.

- IF YOUR GUY WANTS TRIBAL,DO IT.

CAPTURING THAT TRIBAL FEELOF THE LETTERING

IS A LITTLE BIT LOST.

YOU BASICALLY JUST HAVEBOLD, POINTY LETTERS.

- HALO.- I'M A BIG PIT BULL GUY.

THE SMILE THAT THE DOG HAS,IT'S THE ONE

THAT YOU'RE LOOKING FORWHEN YOU GET HOME,

AND YOU CAPTURED IT.

- THE LETTERING ESPECIALLYIS VERY, VERY NICE.

THE FINE DETAILS ARE REALLYWHAT MAKE IT STAND OUT.

- MATTI.

- I'M A BIG FANOF SIMPLE LETTERING,

BUT I LIKE TO SEE SPACINGEXACTLY THE SAME.

YOU GOT TO MAKETHAT LETTERING DEAD EVEN.

- MATTI SHOULD WORRY LESSABOUT TALKING [bleep] ABOUT ME

AND GET HIS HEADBACK IN THE GAME,

'CAUSE HIS TATTOO LOOKSLIKE STRAIGHT GARBAGE TODAY.

- SCOTT.

- YOU SHOWEDGREAT ADAPTABILITY IN THIS,

BEING ABLE TO PULL OFFGRAFFITI LETTERING.

IT'S KIND OF HARD TO READ,BUT THAT'S KIND OF

THE IDEA OF GRAFFITI STYLEWRITING,

SO I THINK YOU DIDA VERY GOOD JOB.

- KYLE.- THIS IS A NICE, SOFT TATTOO,

BUT YOU DEFINITELY NEEDTHE OTHER SIDE OF THE VEINS

IN THE LEAVES.I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT STEM

CUT BACK IN A SILHOUETTEBEHIND THE "CARPE"

TO GIVE US THAT INFERENCETHAT IT'S BACK THERE,

BUT YOU GAVE YOUR CLIENTA REALLY NICE TATTOO TODAY.

- OF COURSE THE JUDGES FINDSEVERAL THINGS

THEY DON'T LIKEABOUT MY TATTOO.

IT'S FRUSTRATING,ESPECIALLY WHEN

THEY FIND NOTHING WRONGWITH SCOTT'S TATTOO,

EVEN THOUGH ITS FLAGIS GOING BACKWARDS

AND YOU CAN'T READWHAT IT SAYS.

- ALL RIGHT, GUYS.TODAY'S CHALLENGE, ADAPTABILITY.

- I'M PUTTING KING RUCKIN THE BOTTOM

JUST FOR NOT FINISHING.

YOU HAVE TO BE ADAPTABLETO YOUR TIME LIMIT.

- SOMETHING THAT SURPRISED METODAY WAS MATTI'S TURN OUT.

- THIS IS THE FIRST DESIGNTHAT'S A TOTAL HICCUP.

- AND THAT LETTERING WAS WEAK.

- I THINK WHAT WE'RE SEEINGOUT OF MATTI IS EXTREME FATIGUE.

THIS ISN'T A PLACETO BE TAKING A REST.

- SAUSAGE CAME UPWITH HIS OWN LETTERING

THAT FITTHE EXTREME SPORTS VIBE.

- VERY SOLID,VERY CLEAN TATTOO.

- YEAH.ONE OF THE TOP TATTOOS

OF THE DAY,UNDOUBTEDLY HALO.

AND LEFT LITTLE HINTSOF OPEN SKIN

REALLY CAPTURE THE LOOKOF THAT DOG.
