“Best Ink” — Tuesday, May 8 at 10PM ET/PTOn this week’s “Best Ink,” only four tattoo artists remain in the competition and they are determined to secure a spot in the final round. The “Flash Challenge” requires the artists to create an album cover for pop-rock musician Porcelain Black’s upcoming album “Mannequin Factory.” Her request for “stripper couture” cover art leaves the artists bewildered. Will they be able to use their talents to give Porcelain the album design of her dreams? Meanwhile, pop music continues to rule the tattoo shop airwaves as the artists are tasked to create Michael Jackson tribute tattoos. The late musician touched their clients’ lives in meaningful ways and the possible tattoo designs – from the Jackson 5 era to the moonwalk – are endless. With a spot in the finale and $100,000 on the line, there is Little Room for error as the final four fight for the permanent title of “Best Ink.”
“Best Ink” is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, a Banijay Group company, with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, and Rico Martinez serving as executive producers and Erin Cristall, Rene Rainey, and Peter Woronov serving as co-executive producers.
