This week you had to demonstrate
adaptability. Based on your work, one of you will be
packing your machines. Alexis.
What do you think overall? The Broccoli Tattoo, you have
a really rough application in the shading and the color. You’ve had problems
with this time and time again throughout this competition
and here it is again. Who is going home? Alexis, I got to say, you’ve had
a lot of technical hiccups. I’m sorry, my vote’s for you. Today, it’s going to be Alexis. The judges have decided. Alexis, you do not have
what it takes to be Ink Master. I don’t think my tattoo
should have been the tattoo that got me sent home.
However, that being said, I still think
it’s an awesome tattoo. There are two tattoos
that I would stand behind. I love my sandwich tattoo. I don’t understand how
they think Jake did a better tattoo
than I did. Jake’s tattoo versus
Alexis’ Tattoo. I like them more open skin
in Jake’s. I think I tattoo for tattooers. I think tattooers could see
what I do and appreciate it, but I don’t think
the judges… I just don’t think
I tattoo how they want. I guess Jake does. We push for people to put more
black, but you put too much. It does look a little burnt. He made that bread, like, that
kind of blah color that I got yelled at
for last week. So it’s like, I just, you know,
I’m kind of just at the point where I don’t know
how to make these people happy. It is a trauma problem.
It is a technical problem. I had high points and low points
in this competition. I think I’ve made awesome
tattoos that were torn apart. I think my drawings
have been great. I think I didn’t deserve
all the shit that I’ve gotten because I do think
I performed well. Having Tattoo of the Day
meant a lot. It’s a cute tattoo.
I think you did a great job. Thank you. It’s cool to be validated
at least once. You’re a great artist
and you’ve got a deeper look into your tattoos
over this last couple of months and I have no doubt
you have the ability to correct all these problems. We’re sure we’re going
to see you again. Sounds good. I would’ve liked to get further.
I wanted to make it to the end. Please pack your machines
and close shop. I’m always going to tattoo
and it’s just what I do. That’s not going to stop.
