    S10.E06: Chin up

    I think if you cut, fold, spindle, or mutilate the skin, you should automatically be on the bottom. Josh should have gone down, too. The judges can then use the time to determine if the skin trauma was bad enough to merit sending someone home. But send a message - skin trauma is serious and avoiding it is a vital part of tattooing. It's going to happen - mistakes happen - but the tattooers should be trying to minimize the chance of it happening.

    I covet that piece, actually. LOL.

    They're pretty difficult to do correctly. Alexey does some pretty cool ones. The mermaid one is close to something he would do. They're a little more subtle, more like glitches in his work.

    When are these people going to realize that you will only get so far in the tattoo world if you can't draw? Unless you're the one they come to for flash, your career will stall without the ability to draw.

    And he continues to be a dick and not at all humble.

    I hated almost all the tattoos and I hated most of the attitudes. Start casting for talent and stop casting for arrogance.

    I've been trying to maintain my interest in IM:A, but I find it just plays as background in my living room. Last night's episode was clearly run out of order, it appeared to be the actual pilot as the format was a little different. I liked the guy who was in the last challenge, but I HATED HATED HATED Jesus' floppy and skinny arm, chest plate, and face.

    The back piece was actually not horrific. It just really needed a few more hours to close up some of those feathers and shade the other side more similarly to the cover up side. She has talent, just needs time management/determination skills. The trash talk is super annoying because in reality, very few tattooers are that arrogant once they've had some years under their belts. The arrogant ones tend to be the newer tattooers. Once you've been to the cons and guested in each other's shops, etc, there's a camaraderie that develops. I don't know that I ever heard Oliver Peck trash talk another artist, witch the exception of his ex. Most are supportive of one another. One of the best tattooers I know is Thomas Hooper. And there is NO arrogance in that man, and he is a true artist.

    Daniel was incredible for someone who has not been tattooing for very long. He has that one skill that is imperative to be a good tattooer.... he can draw.

    y'OK. Pinups can have on shoes, even boots. Who said they had to be barefoot or wearing stilettos? And there's no "rule" that pinups have to have their hands visible. Pinups should be cute, curvy, express personality, have an interesting pose, and not look trashy. And you are not actually comparing Roger to Picasso, are you?

    I was saying that to my husband last night. She really looked pretty with the minimal makeup look,

    Thanks @azshadowwalker, I like your comments, too! OK, last night. At first I was not in the corner of Graydon. I thought he would be unbearably cocky. In the end, he wasn't. He was more than competent, absolutely no whining or complaining about the skin of the final canvas, and he gave her the best ink she had on her body. He really seemed to want to please her, and I liked that. That attitude is sorely missing from IM: Original Edition. 1st Tattoo: The right person left. It's less than 24 hours later and I don't even remember Nicholas' piece. 2nd Tattoo: Whitney's landscape tattoo was overshadowed by her mandala (which had some janky lines and blowouts) and while Graydon's landscape was a little overshadowed by the bee, it wasn't as jarring as the mandala. It fit within the vignette. Final Tattoo: Nikki's final tattoo... was it me, or did the tattoo look like Nikki, facially? She did have the most readable and complete tattoo. Graydon's could have used an hour more to fine tune. Both canvases ended up with solid tattoos they can be proud to wear. I hope that Graydon will take some time to finish his canvas' tattoo the way he really wanted to. I actually agreed with all the judging last night night, from the first artist to leave to the end.

    Much love for Kelly, but I actually thought she was out tattooed. Her piece was top heavy and dark, making it difficult to read. Yes, it will lighten up a bit as it heals, but I still thought Jose Rosado had the better final tattoo. I got such a laugh out of Mel Vespertine claiming that Jose F-ed himself because he did black and gray and she did color in the second tattoo. REALLY? Sorry Mel, that little splash of red does not constitute you doing color. You merely accented in color. High Noon's tattoo was too ambitious and too big for the time limit.

    Deanna should not have won the second round. Her tattoo did not meet the criteria for American Traditional (I was taught by a master in American Traditional, I KNOW it when I see it). Her piece was a nicely applied geisha. But the challenge was American Traditional and the other piece was just that. So yeah, you don't meet the criteria, you shouldn't win the challenge.
