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.
