– Okay, artists,
you have six hours to create a stonework tattoo, and your time begins now. – Nice.
– Let’s do it. – Hi, guys.– For this elimination tattoo,
we’re testing dimension,and all the artists have to
create stonework tattoos. – Gonna be dope. – Think that’ll be fine?
– Yeah. – Biggest thing
in this challenge is showing a lot of different
textures, cracks, beveled edges, and to make
things really jump out and look dimensional
on a 2D surface. – This is pretty important.
I would make a new stencil. – Yeah.♪ ♪– All right. – All right, you ready?
– Yep. [machinery buzzing] – Very, very light
with the shade. – Yeah, I’m going real light
on the face. – Super light.
I mean super light.– The thing that worries me
the most is,I did this tattoo small
to be able to finish it,but I’m not sure
how to add all the detailsand not make it muddy. – You just got to remember
there’s a lot going on. I just want to be able to
read it from across the room. – Okay.♪ ♪– Just never stops.I’m so frustrated right now.I regressed in my tattooing.
I can see it.All of a sudden,
I can’t even drawwhat should be something
simple to me.You have to get
every shadow right. Those dots can kill you.
– Yeah.– I’m focused on
where I’m not.Missing my kids
and missing my wifejust puts me in a place where my head isn’t
where it’s supposed to be.♪ ♪– Four more hours to go. Just flow with it, bro. Just,
here. Give me some cracks over here. Thin line, thin line.
Just follow the fabric. – All right. Okay.♪ ♪– How’s it going, bro? – I’m just putting blacks
on here. – Yeah.
Then you’re good.– Well, Steve,
you tried to fire again.It’s like you’re shooting
that gun drunk.You can’t hit
any of your targets.Your team is crumbling.– [speaks indistinctly]– Roly’s stencil–
this thing’s eyesare so far off,
it can see its own ears. What do you think of
these eyes?♪ ♪– Really?
Is that really happening? – It’s happening,
unless his coach notices.♪ ♪– So Roly’s is very scratchy. – I know.
Its eyes are [bleep]. – No they’re not.
– Yeah, they are. – They’re, like…
[whistles] Like chameleon eyes.♪ ♪– [groans]
– What happened? – You hit a spot
that was sensitive. [groans] – My canvas
is in a ton of pain. She’s moaning. – [moans] – She’s groaning.
– [groans] – Does that help?
– Yeah. – Really?
– Yeah.– This is making me
a little bit nervous,’cause I really need to win
tattoo of the day with this. – [groans] – I’ve gotten tattoo of the day in the best competitions
in the world,and here, I haven’t won
anything yet.I know I am the strongest
competitor here,and it’s about time I show it.♪ ♪– Don’t forget your
light source, Daniel. – I’m not.Even though I’m inexperienced,I’m not used to somebody
telling me how to tattoo. – Look at how much–
how much shading you’re doing. – Was I not supposed to be
shading at all at the bottom? – Not, like, stripes,
you know what I mean? – That one’s
gonna be like a sticker. I was a troublemaker
through high school. And I was selling drugs
throughout the whole thing.When I was 19, I got caught.After I got out of jail,I had no one to rely on,
and I had to rely on myself. – This is underneath, right?
– Yeah. – So that needs to be darker,
but don’t overdo it.– This is something
I’ve never done.This statue
is an iconic image.If I drop the ball
on how intense this thing is, I’m gonna go home.♪ ♪– Two hours to go, guys. Two more hours.♪ ♪– That looks good, bro. Then during critique, they’re
just gonna [bleep] all over it, but right now, it looks good. – I’m really not happy
with Team Steve right now.They gave me a [bleep]
Mayan calendar.– You don’t want to do
the whole Mayan calendar? – Not the whole Mayan calendar.
What she asked for.There’s a lot of heat
on Team DJ,but knowing that they probably
can’t get to Josh,everyone shifted their aim
to me and Deanna.I have no choice but to fight. – You’re a painter,
so put tattooing aside for a little bit, and use your
tools, and just make fun stuff. – All right.I’ve escaped gang violence.I’ve lost loved ones
repeatedly.None of that has stopped me,and I don’t believe that
anything can or ever will.♪ ♪– I put a bunch of black.
It keeps popping it out. – [sighs]– My canvas’s skin
is fire engine red.The more we work on it,
the less I can see. – Because of that redness, you’re gonna lose those eyes,
man, a lot.– The redder the skin,
the more blood to the surface.Grays are really thin,
so if my gray goes inand the blood
is pushing it out,then I really have no structure
or depth to my tattoo. I got to still
tighten up in here. This does not look like stone.I am panicked in my head.♪ ♪– Five, four, three, two, one. That’s it.
Machines down. Time is up. No more ink. – All right, lady,
you ready to check it out? – Yeah.
– All right, man. And we are done.
– Excellent.♪ ♪– Oh, man, that’s [bleep] sick.
Thank you. – Oh, yeah. That is awesome. I really like it a lot. – How did yours went?
I didn’t see it. – [sighs]
It was definitely… Bit off a little bit more
than I should. – Really? – I put the whole background
on my tattoo in, like, 15 minutes. – Anthony seemed to have it
way worse than we got hit. – Really? – I think that Steve realized that some of his guys
might not be as strong, and a better bet is to take out
Anthony’s people.Could get interesting.
