to show contrast
tattooing outer space, and your time begins…[dramatic music]Now. – All right, buddy.
– Let’s do it. – Let me grab some gloves.
I’ll have you stand right here.♪– In this elimination tattoo,the artists
have to do outer space.Space is a vast field
of darkness,so you have to put
planets and starswith a lot of bright light
contrast to stand out.– Come towards me
as much as you can. Perfect. – I still have seven people.I’m trying to get
to that top five.Two more artists got to go home.[rock music]♪– I’m gonna kick
those boys’ butts today. – Uh, yeah.– Originally
my canvas requestedthree planets and three names,but I convinced my canvasthat we are not doing the names. Gian, dummy. – We’re a match made
in heaven, Gian. Sorry. – He thought he was throwing us
under the bus. – No. – Gian thought he was giving me
one of the worst canvases, and I turned
that [bleep] around. – Ryan’s [stoked].
She talked that lady out of that [bleep]. Stoked, right?
– Mm-hmm. – I would be.♪[tattoo machine buzzing] – Just a little bit, huh? – It tickles so good.
Oh, yeah.– This canvas
keeps moving around.He is not sitting
very well at all. – [bleep].
– Sorry.– Mike’s tuned in
to outer spaceright now with his canvas.He’s a [bleep] weirdo. [tattoo machine buzzing] – [groans] – I think I’m really [bleep]. – Three hours to go.♪– Gian’s has zero black
in there, dude. – Yeah.
– It’s outer space, bro. – Yep.– My strategy
is to just keep winningand solidify my spot
in the top five.My report card is great.I’ve been winning
tattoo of the day,flash challenges, and I’ve never
been in the bottom. – Two hours to go. – What’s your critique
once I get all my white in? – I think if you pull it into,
like, a peachy yellow– – Peachy yellow in there? – For the highlight? Yeah. – I am not
that big a fan of Gia’s idea. – I think Gia bit off way more
than she could chew. – I’m worried about my technical
skills in this tattoo, because the chest
is a tricky area to tattoo.You get a lot of inflammation.The skull picks are definitely
screwing me over. – One more hour to go,
everybody.♪– My canvas, she was really into
a lot of the same stuff that I’m into,
like horror stuff,but I decide to take a chanceand to make this
a colorful space piece.I was trying to make
the contrast dark here. – Yeah. You see these little areas right here with that pink?
– Mm-hmm. – Well, that pink it’s not 100%
saturated right there. – Okay. Maybe just do
a second pass on that? – Just make sure you button up
all your edges and clean them up.– I want to give the judges
what they wantand stay in this competition. – I like this. Turn to the side
a little bit for me.I don’t have a cluehow to show contrast
with this tattoo.My strategy is to
keep it clean, simple, and survive. – That’s intense. I jumped. – I’m from the projects.I have nine brothers
and sisters.In my household,
we were always competing.We raced home to get
the last slice of bread.Being here is
like normal to me,because I’m always around
a group of bickering peoplecompeting for something. – Five, four, three, two, one. – That is it.
Time’s up. Machines down.
No more ink. – Oh, yeah. It’s great.
I love the planet. It’s perfect. – Yo, that’s dope. The colors are mad bright. It’s awesome, man. – Boneface’s tattoo
is looking really dull. I don’t see any contrast at all,
and it looks likethere’s a flying meatball
across the front of it.It’s a [bleep] tattoo, and he shouldn’t be here.♪
