While Joshua struggles to put together a funky-sounding tattoo machine, Ally Lee and Tatu Baby have it worse when they can't even build theirs.

- FOR AN ARTIST,YOUR TATTOO MACHINE

IS YOUR INSTRUMENT.

IT IS YOUR TOOL.

- THIS IS THE ONLY THINGI'M A GIRLY GIRL WITH.

I DO NOT BUILD [bleep].

- YOUR UNDERSTANDINGOF HOW THAT WORKS

IS IMMENSELY IMPORTANT.

- WHERE'S THE INSTRUCTIONS?

- THERE'S A BIG CLOUDOVER MY HEAD

WITH A QUESTION MARK ON ITRIGHT NOW.

I'M FREAKING OUT.

LAST TIME I BUILTA TATTOO MACHINE

WAS MANY YEARS AGO,

AND I DON'T REMEMBERHOW TO DO IT.

[clatter]UGH!

- I COULDN'T IMAGINE TRYING TOPUT THOSE BOTTOMS ON WITH NAILS.

- IT'S SO HARD.

- THE FIRST THOUGHTTHAT'S COMING THROUGH MY MIND

IS THAT I'M GONNABE EMBARRASSED

BECAUSE I'M NOT GONNA KNOW HOWTO PUT THIS MACHINE TOGETHER.

HOPE THIS IS RIGHT.

- WHERE'D MY OTHER WRENCH GO,DUDE?

WHAT THE [bleep]?- WOW.

- THE ONES ON THE BOTTOMDON'T EVEN FIT IN THIS [bleep].

- GREAT LORD, HAVE MERCY.[bleep].

- WHAT THE [bleep]?- WHAT THE [bleep]?

- TURN IT ON,SEE IF IT WORKS.

[tattoo gun buzzing]

WHO'S THAT, GOT THE [bleep]FIRST ONE TO TURN ON?

IT LITERALLYIS LIKE RIDING A BIKE.

I NAILED IT.[tattoo gun buzzing]

- IS THATA BEAUTIFUL SOUND?

[tattoo gun buzzing]- [bleep], I'M GOOD WITH THAT.

[tattoo gun buzzing]- NICE.

- WAS THEREA SPRING TENSION GAUGE

FLOATING AROUND HERESOMEWHERE?

NOBODY'S RESPONDING.

- 60 MINUTES, EVERYBODY.60 MINUTES REMAINING.

- THE CLOCK'S TICKING.

I AM WILLING AND DETERMINEDTO PROVE A POINT,

THAT I CAN PUTTHIS TATTOO MACHINE TOGETHER.

WHAT THE HELL?- I THINK YOU PUT THOSE

ON BACKWARDS,FROM HERE TO THERE.

YEAH.- I'M SO LUCKY I GOT YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.- YOU'RE WELCOME.

- I CAN'T DO ITWITH THESE NAILS.

I AM VERY NERVOUS THATI'M GOING TO EMBARRASS MYSELF

IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY.

IF I DON'T GETTHIS MACHINE RUNNING,

I'M NOT GOINGTO GET TO TATTOO.

[tattoo gun buzzingerratically]

- NAH,THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

MY MACHINE JUST ISN'T RUNNINGHOW I WANT IT TO.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIMETO STOP AND RETUNE IT.

SOUNDING OKAY TO YOU?

- JOSHUA?- CLICK-CLACK-CLACK,

CLICK-CLACK-CLACK.

- SLOW IT DOWN AND MAKEA FEW ADJUSTMENTS HERE.

- WE GOOD?

- YEP.- YOU SURE?

- LINE WORK IS EVERYTHINGIN A TATTOO.

IT IS THE STRUCTUREWHICH YOU BUILD FROM.

IF ANYTHING THAT ISTHE SUPPORTING STRUCTURE

IS WEAK, THE STRUCTURE FALLS,JUST LIKE TATTOOING.

- 30 MINUTES LEFT, EVERYBODY.30 MINUTES TO GO.

- LET ME SEE IF THAT WORKS.

OH, I JUST BROKE IT.

- I'M FREAKING OUT.IT'S SO EMBARRASSING.

[nails cracking]

- FIVE MINUTES.

- I BROKE MY COIL,SO I HAVE TO PIGTAIL

THIS WIRE BACK TOGETHER.

I MORE OR LESS GOT THIS.

I MEAN, THERE'S NO REASONIT SHOULDN'T WORK NOW.

DOESN'T WANT TO WORK.

I DON'T KNOW.

- TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN,

SIX, FIVE, FOUR, THREE,

TWO, ONE--TIME'S UP.

MACHINES DOWN,NO MORE INK.

- THAT SHOULD DO IT, MAN.

THE WAY HIS ARM ENDS UP,ALL MY STRAIGHT LINES

ARE NOW THESE,LIKE, CURVED LINES.

IT'S A [bleep] NIGHTMARE.

I PUT MY MACHINE TOGETHER.AT LEAST THAT'S SOMETHING.

- SORRY.- NO, THAT'S OKAY.

- I AM VERY EMBARRASSED.

I HATE THE WORD,"I CAN'T DO IT."

I'M SO FRUSTRATEDAT THIS POINT.

- I'M ACTUALLY SHOCKEDTHAT TATU BABY FAILED AT THIS.

THIS IS SOMETHING EVERYBODYSHOULD KNOW HOW TO DO.

[nail cracks]

- TATU BABY,WHAT HAPPENED?

- IT'S BEEN YEARS SINCEI'VE PUT A MACHINE TOGETHER.

IT DIDN'T TURN ON.

- BEING A WELL-ROUNDED TATTOOER,YOU HAVE TO KNOW YOUR EQUIPMENT.

MAYBE IT'S TIME TO FOCUSA LITTLE BIT MORE ENERGY

ON KNOWING YOUR TOOLS.- DEFINITELY.

- YOU DO A LOT OF DIFFERENTSTYLE TATTOOS.

KNOWING HOW TO WORK THIS MACHINEAND KNOWING HOW TO TUNE IT,

YOU COULD POTENTIALLYDO A LOT BETTER TATTOOS

IN THE LONG RUN.

- THE WEAKNESSHAS BEEN EXPOSED.

- ALLY.

- I DIDN'T GET THE MACHINEPUT TOGETHER.

- EITHER YOU KNOW YOUR CRAFTOR YOU DON'T.

BEING ABLE TO PUTA MACHINE TOGETHER

IS DEFINITELYKNOWING YOUR CRAFT.

- NOT KNOWING HOW TO PUTA TATTOO MACHINE TOGETHER

DOESN'T MEANI'M A BAD ARTIST.

- BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHINGFOR US TO CRITIQUE,

YOU GOT TO BRING INSOME SOLID LINE WORK

IN YOUR ELIMINATION TATTOO,

IF, IN FACT,YOU'RE STILL WITH US BY THEN.

- OH, [bleep].

- JASON.

- TATTOO LOOKS SUPER CLEAN.

THE LINESHAVE ENOUGH DISTANCE

SO THEY WON'T BLEED TOGETHER.

- AND OBVIOUSLY,YOU'RE PROFICIENT

WITH YOUR TATTOO MACHINE.

- I THINK I WAS ONEOF THE FIRST

TO GET MY MACHINEPUT TOGETHER.

- GOOD JOB.

- ES.

- OBVIOUSLY,I DIDN'T FINISH IT.

ONCE AGAIN,I HAD THE TIME ISSUE.

- NOT FINISHING YOUR TATTOOS,IT'S GONNA HAUNT YOU SOON.

- I'M HEARING IT.

- JOSHUA, ANY TROUBLEGETTING THIS MACHINE TOGETHER?

- ABSOLUTELY NOT.VERY EXPERIENCED.

- THE LINES AREN'T SUPER CLEAN,AND IT'S A LITTLE CROOKED.

THERE COULD BE A LOT MOREVARIANCE IN THE LINE WEIGHT.

- JESUS,JOSH'S TATTOO SUCKS.

HE CAN'T FOLLOWA STRAIGHT LINE.

- KYLE.- YOUR FLATNESS ON THE TOP

AND THE BOTTOM AREN'T AS PRECISEAS WE'D WANT TO SEE.

YOU'VE JUST COME UPA LITTLE SHORT.

- CRAIG.- IT REALLY SHOWS

THAT THE MACHINEWAS RUNNING RIGHT FOR YOU.

YOU WERE ABLE TO USENOT ONLY VERY FINE LINES,

BUT THICKER LINES.

YOU SCULPTED OUT YOUR LETTERSAND NUMBERS.

THEY LOOK REALLY SUPER TIGHT.- THANK YOU.

- I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOMETHINGTHAT CRAIG CAN'T DO.

HE'S DEFINITELYTHE NUMBER-ONE RUNNER RIGHT NOW.

- JACKIE.

- IT'S DEFINITELYA TOUGH SPOT TO WORK.

YOU CAN SEE A LITTLE BITOF INCONSISTENCIES

WITH KEEPING IT STRAIGHT.

SOME OF THE LINESIN THE BAR CODE

LOOK LIKE THEY COMEA LITTLE BIT CLOSE TOGETHER

TOWARDS THE BOTTOM.

- JOEY.

- A LITTLE BIT OF A TRICKY AREAON THE BACK OF THE NECK,

BUT MAN, THIS TATTOO IS CLEAN,IT'S SUPER TIGHT,

AND THAT LETTERINGIS ALMOST FLAWLESS.

- YOU GOT IT A LOT MORE SOLID

THAN SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLEWE'VE SEEN.

IT'S A GOOD JOB.

- JIME.

- IT LOOKS FLATACROSS THE TOP AND THE BOTTOM

AND THE NUMBERSARE SUPER CLEAN.

- MAKING IT THAT NICE,THAT SOLID,

IT'S KIND OF LIKE YOUSHOWED EVERYBODY WHAT'S UP.

- MADE RICH.

- FOR THAT SMALLOF A BAR CODE,

YOU COULD HAVE DONEA LITTLE BIT BETTER

GETTING THIS THINGNICE AND SQUARE.

- CHRIS.- TATTOO'S DEFINITELY

THE ROUGHEST ONEWE'VE SEEN.

- YOU'RE NOT GONNA BE ABLETO WALK AWAY

OUT OF THIS ELIMINATIONCHALLENGE

UNLESS YOU GET YOUR LINE WORKA LITTLE BIT BETTER.

- I UNDERSTAND.

TO COMPLETELY BOMB

IN FRONT OF SOMEBODYI RESPECT,

THAT'S BULL[bleep].
