Rigged and scripted
26 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I work for a well-known tattoo studio so I have some pretty solid insider information that this show is now rigged. The winner is already selected before the show starts filming. If you're an artist on this show, you have to have a gimmick. If you don't have one, they give you one. If you're a woman, you are going to be sexualized (Tatu Baby for example). They tell these people what to wear and who to start s*** with. If you don't like their games, they will let you know matter-of-factly, that you'll never get another chance to show 4 million people your tattoos...so suck it up. Self-respecting tattoo artist have caught on to this bull**** and are not doing the show. So you get bottom of the barrel type artist who are just trying to get their name out there. Ink Master is a disgrace to the tattoo industry. An already misunderstood industry. Every year all the artist in our shop get the 2-4 emails, asking if they would like to try out for the show. To that we say, kick rocks. I know people who have been on the show and people who have tried out for the show, if you're not loud, rude, cocky, or a woman, you won't make it. They don't give a **** that 90% of the "human canvas" participants are going home with crappy tattoos. They just want drama. Also, the fact that they have a spin-off show that allows previous contestants to fix their mistake should say something to you. Bring back Best Ink and take this garbage off the air.
