Sorry for the delay folks! Been having some technical difficulties!
Sooo is there something I dislike more than Best Ink?
Why yes, yes there is…
Their names are Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling. I find them both fake and well frankly annoying.
So I wasn’t too thrilled to see Dean as the reason behind this week’s flash challenge.
This week in the flash challenge the contestants were asked to come up with an end to end script piece representing McDermott and the love he has for his wife and family.
I was very happy to see everyone try their hardest. London did the best followed by Alexis whose work was totally bad ass. On the other hand Jessica and Nick didn’t do so great.
Actually Jessica’s work isn’t really that great. I think it is very childish and on the fly. Really, I find her very childish. I liked when Alexis called her a one upper. She always seems to be trying to be the center of attention even if that means crying.
This week’s ink challenge involved tattoo virgins and that says it all doesn’t it? People who have never been inked before were there to get tattoos to represent their best friends.
Judge Joe reminded them that they were the first people to touch these people with needles so they needed to be sensitive. The judge then threw them for a loop when they announced that the “Skins” best friends would be there to get matching or semi matching tattoos.
They were given four hours. At this point I think judging them is totally pointless.
Why judge them when they aren’t given adequate time to finish the tattoos? This isn’t what the artists signed up for a now we are hearing it more and more from them.
Alexis’s final tattoos were really nice. And she definitely has a chance of winning the competition.
The judges seemed to like John’s work and I couldn’t disagree more. I thought it was sloppy and badly planned out.
Once again Jessica was in the bottom and this time she received the axe. I’m just fine with that. She shouldn’t be tattooing in my opinion. It’s really getting down to the best.
More disaster next week from Best Ink and some other great blogs!

My beautiful half sleeve! Around 15 hours total to finish.
It’s Poseidon and Aphrodite because I’m obsessed with Greek Mythology.
