I was happy that Joey won Ink Master. I would have been disappointed if Jime had taken it. He's very talented, but needs to learn a thing or two about humility and class. Joey had it all! Talent, versatility, and was a stand-up/gracious guy throughout the competition He deserved the title, imo!
I happened to catch a few back-to-back episodes of Bad Ink. Dirk and Ruckus were mildly entertaining (for the first 5 minutes or so), but with each new 'cover-up' I couldn't help cringing and thinking 'damn, I feel sorry for that person!' So I did a little Google digging and it seems I'm not alone. Some people say the show is fake... that the tats are drawn on, etc. What a sham! lol
Some of the other shows (Black Ink, Tattoo Nightmares, Tattoo Rescue) I've seen have stupid/unnecessary drama, shitty work, or are so obviously fake that they're just too painful to watch, so... I don't! :P
Remember... tats are (mostly) permanent and will be there for life!! Proceed with caution or risk ending up with a monstrosity like these poor people! Damn!
[if anyone has any experience with tattoo removal or nightmare stories/pics to share, please do!]
