And your time starts… Now!♪ ♪– Ooh, yes. My strategy to take Gia outis to show that I could do
more than one style.Ready?
– You know it.– I want line work.I want realism. I think it’s a unique design,
for sure. If I beat Gia, I get on
“Ink Master” season ten. That’s a huge deal.To anyone who doubted me
in the past,it means everything. – Just relax.
– Relaxing is key.I went out on “Ink Master”way earlier than I wanted to.So I feel like I have
something to prove.I’m definitely not a talker
while I’m doing line work ’cause I can’t do two things
at once.And it’s different tattooing
in a competition settingthan in the comfort
of your home.So I’m little nervous.[dramatic music]– Okay, you guys.
You have four hours left. [cheers and applause] – How’s it going over here? – I’ve been playing it safe. So I’m gonna be a little
ballsy this round, I think. – In size or in style?
– Both. It’s very symbolic ’cause
he didn’t want, like, a bird. He wanted something
that symbolizes something. I wanted to take that and implement
some artistic edge to it. – Deanna’s kicking ass
right now. I don’t think I’ve ever seen
her move that fast. – Yeah, and they’re doing, like, two completely
different styles. – Like Gia’s tattoo– it’s a crazy cool image, huh? It actually has, like,
the bird head in there, and everything
with the cool clock. – Yeah, I think, like, right
now I can’t really tell. – She’s trying not
to break my fingers. – I think I know
what it feels like to be a monkey in a cage.
– I know, right? – Is the crowd bothering you? – Hell yeah. It’s pretty obnoxious,
actually. – Just try to zone
all that [bleep] out. – Yeah, I’m trying. – Two hours left. [cheers and applause]
Two hours! – Deanna has these sort of
trash polka, like, points coming down. – Yeah.
– But they’re not solid black. – It’s kind of tough
to pick out what’s a design point
and what’s a smear, and if she doesn’t execute
that perfectly it’s literally
just gonna look– – Sloppy.
– Yeah. – Equally as concerning, Gia is having a really hard
time with the live crowd. – It’s definitely slowing
her down. I just wish she wouldn’t
make me so nervous. – The crowd is definitely
messing with my head. It’s distraction after
distraction after distraction. – So the noise
doesn’t bother you? – It’s the crowd
that’s annoying. When they walk by,
it shakes the floor. Like, that bothers me.I’m flustered.This is really not
what I expected.♪ ♪
