– Okay, artists. You have six hours to tattoo a sexy pinup
with appealing proportion. And your time starts…♪ ♪Now. – Let’s do this.– Today,
we’re testing proportionwith “Ink Master’s” favorite: pinups. – Go ahead and take a mirror. I want to make sure
you like where it’s at.– These artists need to
make sure that her proportionsare all voluptuous and sexy. – There is one spot
of this tattoo that is gonna hurt so bad…
[laughs]– We’re gonna make these artists
switch every 30 minutesbecause we want to see
that you can do it all.If you came
with a strong teammate,then you shouldn’t have
any worries. – All right, amigo.
Let’s rock and roll.– This girl has dark skin.She wants tons of information
put into this piece.Going big’s a risk,but there’s
no other option here.If we go too small,
it’d be very dark and heavy. – I’m feeling
really competitive. – Really competitive,
I like that. – I’m like,
I don’t want to lose. – No,
we’re not gonna lose today. – Yeah.
– I’m really nervous.I do not want to go home
on the first challenge. – Oh, this is cool.
– We had to redraw it. – He doesn’t like it? – We had to put the axe
in this hand.– Time started already.I mean, we haven’t even started
tattooing yet.I’m losing my mind right now.– Let him see
what it looks like now. – Can’t waste
much more time, dude. We’re already not tattooing. – And switch artists.♪ ♪– Ooh-wee.
– You okay? – Yeah, I got to be, or it ain’t getting done, right? – We’re definitely just feeling
the pressures of things, with our canvas
not working with usand not budging
on the black and gray.The color’s definitely taking
a long time. – There’s a skin tone there. – Oh,
that is more of a skin tone.– I just wish we would stopgetting dealt [bleep] canvases.– I’m so jealous
you guys got the cowgirl. Pinz and Needlez tattooing
a weird, unattractive ladywearing a big oversized hat
and a meat sack–it’s strange. – Yeah, it looks awesome.
We’re already late in this thingso we’re both panicking
right now. – So, right now,
whoever starts, ends. – Yes. We might be completely [bleep]ed
in this challenge. – Ready?♪ ♪– Four hours remaining. Switch it up. – Tag, you’re it. – All right. – Thirty minutes. This isn’t nerve-racking
or anything? – It takes the heat off.– Our canvas originally wanted
a fire breathersitting on a carousel horse,but that is impossible to tattoo
in six hours,so we got her downto just a fire breather
sitting in a ring,and we’re killing it,
but right now,the rest of the alliance
definitely seems likeit’s gonna implode. – Do you want to put
any, like, blush or anything, or anything in her face? – Yeah, I want to give her,
like, purplish maybe. – I’ve done a Medusa,
and I’ve done a pinup,but combining these things,
we’ve got to make surethe snakes are not too big
or too small on the head itself,so it’s another way
to show proportion.Also another way
to screw ourselves. This right here
needs to be mixed. You have to make a mid-tone.
– Okay. – Final hour, guys. Switch artists.♪ ♪– You’re on boots next, right? – Yeah,
I’m gonna do her shirt and boots and finish
the rest of the water. – The cool kids’ club scrambling
and struggling for their lives, and we’re sitting here
on easy street. – That looks sharp. – Dude, this thing’s
just coming together. It’s coming together. Black Cobra did a good job.They gave the worst skull picks
to the alliance.The veterans are gonna
take control of this thing.This cool kids’ club is in a little more trouble
than they realize. – I don’t know how much
I got left in me. – Light
at the end of the tunnel, bud. Butt tattoos,
definitely not the most fun. – His skin is starting
to become highly irritated.It makes the line work
look shaky and wobbly.It’s actually just swelling,and we’re starting
to worry about it.This guy could stand up,and it could be
completely jacked.♪ ♪– Five.
Two. One. That’s it.
Machines down. Time’s up. No more ink. – You’re good.
There you go… – Yay, thank you. – Done.
– Oh. – I love it.
That’s amazing. – Nice.
Yeah! – Yeah. – Holy Moly. I love it. – The talent pool here
is ridiculous. There are some pieces
that I looked at today that I was like, holy–
wow. – We have to keep up, for sure. – Well, we’re just warming up,
you know what I mean? So I just hope we don’t go home. Or, more importantly,
