Tested on their adaptability, this week the artists have to ink their canvases with a word that represents how they get the most out of life. Halo sets out to prove both Scott and Matti wrong.

- OHH, DOPE!

- OOH!THIS IS AWESOME!

- THIS IS MY [bleep] RIGHT HERE!BAM.

- WELCOME, ARTISTS.

THIS WEEK, WE'RE TESTINGYOUR ADAPTABILITY.

- ADAPTABILITY IS JUSTBEING ABLE TO DO

EVERYTHINGTHAT COMES YOUR WAY--

A HARD CANVAS, AN EASY CANVAS,LIGHT SKIN, DARK SKIN.

ALL OF THAT IS ADAPTABILITY.

- TODAY, YOUR CANVASESARE RISK-TAKERS.

FOR THIS CHALLENGE,YOU MUST TATTOO YOUR CANVAS

WITH A WORD THAT REPRESENTS HOWTHEY GET THE MOST OUT OF LIFE.

LETTERING IS INCREDIBLYDIFFICULT TO TATTOO

BECAUSE IT REQUIRESCLEAN, CONSISTENT LINES.

- IF YOU CAN'T MOVE SMOOTH,FLUID LINES

ALL THE WAYTHROUGH YOUR DESIGN,

YOU'RE LETTERING'S GONNALOOK LIKE [bleep].

- BUT THAT'S NOT ALL.

YOU MUST ALSO INCORPORATEAN IMAGE INTO YOUR DESIGN.

YOU MUST USE ADAPTABILITYTO MAKE THE IMAGE

AND THE LETTERINGWORK TOGETHER PERFECTLY.

- I PRETTY MUCH SUCKAT LETTERING.

I'M NOT LOOKING FORWARDTO THIS CHALLENGE.

- YOUR CANVASESHAVE BEEN RANDOMLY ASSIGNED

AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE HOURSTO TATTOO.

LET'S HEAD INSIDEAND MEET YOUR CANVASES.

- HI.

- HOW YOU DOING?- HI.

- ARTISTS,YOUR TIME BEGINS NOW.

- WHAT DO YOU WANT IT TO SAY?- "TRIUMPH."

- "TRIUMPH."- "TRIUMPH."

- THESE ARTISTS NEED TO SHOWADAPTABILITY

AND INTEGRATE WORDSWITH THEIR DESIGN.

- "SHRED."- "SHRED."

- LIKE YOU'RE GONNASHRED THEM OUT.

- YEAH, EXACTLY.- TOTA--OKAY.

- THE WORD IS OBVIOUSLYGONNA BE A FOCAL POINT,

BUT YOU DON'T WANT ITTO TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR DESIGN.

IT HAS TO BE ONE PIECE.

- WHAT'S THE WORD YOU WANT?

- "CONQUER," TO REPRESENTMY CONQUER OVER MY ADDITION.

- I COME FROM A HISTORYOF ADDICTION ALSO.

I WASTED MY LIFE FOR ABOUTEIGHT YEARS ON METHAMPHETAMINES.

I DID NINE MONTHSIN A REHAB HOME.

- I DID TEN MONTHSIN A REHAB HOME.

- BECAUSE OF OURSIMILAR HISTORIES,

MY CANVAS AND I ARE ABLETO COME UP WITH A GREAT IDEA.

I KNOW I CANROCK THIS ONE OUT.

- I'M KIND OF LEAVING ITIN YOUR HANDS,

SO HAVEAS MUCH CREATIVE FREEDOM

AS YOU WANT.- SWEET.

NOW THAT SCOTT AND MATTIHAVE SET A FIRE UNDER MY ASS,

I PLAN ON TAKINGTHIS COMPETITION BY THE BALLS.

THE MAIN WAY I'M GONNA SHOWADAPTABILITY

IS BY HOW THE LETTERSACTUALLY ADAPT WELL

TO THE DESIGN PART OF ITTO MAKE ONE SOLID, SMOOTH PIECE.

- TWO HOURS REMAINING,EVERYBODY.

- MY CANVAS WANTS REALISTICHANDS HOLDING THE WORLD,

AND THE WORD HE WANTS DONEIN TRIBAL--

TRIBAL.

IT'S GONNA LOOK HORRIBLE.IT'S NOT GONNA FLOW.

I THINK I'M SCREWED.

- WHAT IS THIS RIGHT HERE?- THAT IS A PETAL FALLING.

I THOUGHT IT KIND OF ADDEDTO THE SENTIMENT OF IT.

ALL I WANT TO DOIS MAKE AMERICA PROUD OF ME.

I WANT TO SHOW THEM THAT THERE'SA REASON THEY VOTED ME BACK.

THERE'S SUCH AN ADDED PRESSURETHAT I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

LAST TIME.I GET IT NOW.

- ONE HOUR REMAINING.ONE HOUR LEFT TO GO, EVERYBODY.

- I THINK WE'RE DOING GOOD.

TO MAKE THE LETTERINGJUST AS EXTREME

AS WHAT THE WORD'STRYING TO SAY,

THAT'S KEY IN THIS DESIGN.

"SHRED" MEANS REALLY FAST,BROKEN UP, GNARLY LETTERING.

- TATTOOS REALLY REFLECTTHE ARTIST THAT ARE DOING 'EM.

IF THE ARTIST IS REALLY WIMPY,YOU'RE GONNA GET WIMPY TATTOOS.

- MY CANVAS WANTSGRAFFITI LETTERS.

I'M A GRAFFITI ARTIST.THIS IS IT RIGHT HERE.

GRAFFITI LETTERS ARE BIG.THEY'RE BULKY.

YOU CAN'T DO THAT STUFF SMALL.

YEAH, YEAH, IT'S GOOD...WHEN I FINISH.

- FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO, ONE.

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

- WHEW.- NO MORE INK.

- WHAT DOES IT SAY, THOUGH?

- T-R-I-U-M-P-H, "TRIUMPH."

- TRIUMPH.

YOU CAN'T EVEN READWHAT SCOTT'S TATTOO SAYS.

I DEFINITELY KNOW I DIDA BETTER PIECE THAN SCOTT TODAY.

- I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUBEASTED THAT OUT IN THREE HOURS.

- THANK YOU, SCOTT,FOR TALKING ALL THAT [bleep],

BECAUSE NOW, I'M COMING OUTIN BEAST MODE.
