Ink Master Season Two Episode 6 Recap- Pinup Tattoos

By November 7, 2012

Follow me on:

Just last night as the Presidential Election polls closed, the tattoo artists competing for Ink Master on SPIKE's reality tattoo competition had their own task at hand- to design a pinup tattoo from a live pinup model.

Just as American Traditional threw most of the contenstants a whirl, pinup tattoos posed their own set of challenges. From the hair to the hands, no detail was spared from judgement.

Kay Kutta found himself in the bottom three after changing the placement of his Geisha inspired pinup, as Clint Cummings showed off his attention to detail with a pinup tattoo the judges were clearly impressed with. But the leader of the challenge was Steve Tefft, who created a pinup anyone would be proud to wear. For the elimination, Lalo was sent home.
