Congratulations Tony and TeeJ. You’ve made it
into the top two. Based on both
your tag-team tattoo and your 35-hour master canvas, one of you will walk away
with $100,000, a feature in “Inked” magazine,
and guess what. The title of Ink Master. [cheers and applause] – Nothing but respect
no matter how this plays out. I just want you to know that. – Chris, what do you think? – The thing that rings out is definitely the backwards spine
on the dragon. The spine’s gonna go the
same direction as the scale. So where you have the back turn
on the backsideof the first top
of the S shape,the spine’s going
counter scales– I should have caught it.
I should have caught it. – Having a design flaw
on that dragon definitely knocks it
down a notch, but it’s still, to me,
a really solid, clean tattoo. The skull morph,
it’s not as much line work,as much detail as the dragon
in six hours.– If you look at the eyes
in the morph,that thing is alive.
– Challenge is a challenge. That’s supposed to be realism. I can peel just as many flaws
out of that thing. What are these, like,
hair thingscoming off the forehead?
That ain’t realism.[crowd booing]
It is what it is. There’s problems
with both of ’em. – Order up. – Let’s talk about
these back pieces. – For me, man,
Tony’s back piece is one of the most solid– One of the most solid
back pieces we’ve seen. Super clean, super rich,
super bold. For TeeJ’s,
it’s a big, beautiful,totally different wild takeon what we usually see.
TeeJ was right.He’s bringing something
to “Ink Master” that we’ve never seen before. – They’re both badass tattoos. It’s a tough one, man.
– Both warrior tattoos. Both guys came to fight.
– Damn. All right, guys,
I need a final decision. Bring it in for me. all: Tony! Tony! Tony! [chanting continues] – All right, guys.
This is it. The judges have decided.[tense music]♪ ♪Tony… [cheers and applause] You do have what it takes to be Ink Master.
Congratulations, buddy. [cheers and applause][rock music playing]♪ ♪– You won. – [laughing] – God damn it. [crowd chanting “Tony!”] – Congratulations, guys.
You both killed it. [cheers and applause]
