♪ – Hello, Charlotte! What is up? [cheers and applause] We have two incredible artists that are gonna do
some sick tattoos. – Competing on this side,
we have Teej Poole. [cheers and applause] And on this side,
we have “Ink Master” season 8 finalist Kelly Doty. [cheers and applause] – All right, guys, we’re gonna
need your help today ’cause you guys get to vote
on which tattoo you like best. – Hell yeah!
[cheers and applause] You guys have six hours
to tattoo, and your time starts now. [cheers and applause] – Does that look good to you?
– Looks good to me.♪ ♪– It’s beautiful.
This is gonna be awesome. – I’m excited for it.[tense music]I’m going in today doing
black and gray again.I know it’s a huge risk.Like, I’m a one-trick pony,
but that’s my strong point,so I got to deliver.This is a style
I’ve been working onfor the last seven years.If I get beat today,
[bleep] out the window. – You were made
for getting tattooed. Like, your skin is just great. Someone moisturizes.
– [chuckles] – Teej is a phenomenal
black-and-gray artist.To go up against him
is absolutely daunting,so I have to rely entirely
on my bag of tricks.Hearing your story, I would
feel remiss if I didn’t say, like, it dredged up
a lot of, uh… a lot of stuff for me. I was in very much
an abusive relationship. It was terrifying,
and the things that happened are, um, still
in the back of my head all the time. I need you to know
how much it means to me that I get to be the one
to do this for you. [sniffles][Lykke Li’s
“No Rest For the Wicked”]– It’s such a horrible thing, and it’s happening
all over the place, and I’m glad that you got
away from it.– ♪ There’ll be no rest
for the wicked ♪♪ There’s no song
for the choir ♪♪ There’s no hope
for the weary ♪♪ You let them win
without a fight ♪– Two hours left, guys.
Two hours.[tense music]– Is the majority
of the gourd rendered? – Not the details. Tricky thing is I have
to leave the focal point to the last thing. – You’re leaving
your main focal point to the last thing you tattoo? – It’s yellow.
If I do that first, then I’m gonna be wiping
all these dark colors over it, and it’s gonna stain it
all to hell. I have to do it last.♪ ♪– Hello there, needle. That’s tender. Ugh. I’m gonna have to go to
the bathroom, I feel nauseous. – My canvas is sick,
and now time is ticking, and my stomach is starting
to turn into knots, and I’m starting to lose
my mind a little bit. – I am worried
about Kelly, dude. She’s not a fast tattooer, and her canvas
is having a hard time. – I know. – Every single one of these
minutes is gonna count. – If my canvas doesn’t
come back soon, then the rose is
gonna be unfinished, and ooh, boy, it’s
gonna be real obvious.
