Every drop of ink paid off for the very talented Jason Clay Dunn as he finally stakes his claim, earning the title of ‘Ink Master’ and taking home $100,000.
The first round of elimination tattoos begins as the artists are given just 5 hours to ink human canvases with decorative trimming tats. James already has a non-jolly client.
Past Ink Master favorites James Vaughn, Tatu Baby, Sausage, and Jime Litwalk return for a chance to win $10k just in time for the holidays.
Jime steps out of his newschool norm and pushes the boundaries with his decorative trimming tattoo while Sausage stresses over his canvas’ choice of design.
As if getting judged by Dave, Chris, and Oliver wasn’t gut-wrenching enough, the artists braced themselves for an onslaught of critiques when three guest judges were brought in.
Perhaps the most controversial elimination ever: Josh was a top dog in the competition, but after multiple rules violations, sadly, he had to close shop.
Part of being a great tattoo artist is being able to deal and work with really, really difficult clients – guess Julia didn’t get the note.
Aaron just couldn’t catch a break this season with canvases that were writhing in pain, shaking uncontrollably, and in this one extreme case, passing out.
Tattooing against Tommy Montoya was undoubtedly intimidating, but ol’ Cleen wasn’t afraid to give the black and grey guru a harsh critique of his own.
Mark showed a lot of heart in the competition and made a huge comeback, but in the end he just couldn’t snag a spot in the final 3.
