About Ink Master
Ten of the country's top tattoo artists hope to make a lasting impression on the judging panel in this competition series. Those judges include renowned tattoo artist Chris Nunez, best known for his work on "Miami Ink," veteran artist Oliver Peck and host Dave Navarro, plus a roster of guest judges such as Inked magazine creative director Todd Weinberger and NBA player Chris Andersen. Competing for a $100,000 cash prize and an editorial feature in Inked, the contestants face technical challenges as well as one that tests their creativity, where they must execute an original tattoo on command. And in addition to the judges, the competitors obviously have to satisfy the "human canvases" -- the people on the show who are getting tattooed -- who range from tattoo virgins to those with full sleeves of body art.
