  • A great show gone wrong

    The finale of season four and the clues to the new season of Ink Master "Rivals" are the culmination of an exceedingly obvious trend on the show; To manufacture explosive and petty drama at the cost of tattooing. This forced change was easily perceived throughout the season as the focus of each episode was conflict between cast members and not their actual skills as tattoo artists. Additionally, the show centered on the drama created from handing out skulls in a way that agrees with common sense from a competitive point of view. The three contestants were clearly anxious in the dismal final as they were presumably forced(by the producers) to talk about ridiculous drama from the season. The finale did not give the viewers any review of past tattoos from the season or a complete assessment of the contestants, which is what they desired. This show originally exposed viewers to the extremely difficult and interesting art of tattooing. The great potential of this competitive show has been lost to dim-witted manufactured drama. We fans are more intelligent and deserve better than the producers fetish with scripted conflict. I will not be watching season 5.moreless
  • Show is Fixed

    Really, really disappointed with this show. I'm an artist, and I know the judges don't know what they're talking about. They pick an artist and try to convince us in critiques that they're the best, then carry them through to the end (so they can make believe they know what good art is).

    It's completely fixed -- there is nothing left up to chance or viewer opinion, or even skill. The judges make every single decision, whether wrong or right, and when they favor an artist, that's who wins... Winners nominating an artist to eliminate, canvases nominating an artist to eliminate, America nominating an artist to win... It's all just distraction to make the choices seem more random or like the weight of power is more spread out than it is.

    It's not. If the audience votes for an artist to win, or a contestant votes for an artist to lose, the judges have the final say and therefore the ONLY say. Everything else is a distraction. Smoke and mirrors to cover up incompetence and power hunger.

    America voted Sausage was the best, but after constantly refusing to eliminate Scott (and trying to shove him down our throats as the best artist), the judges chose Scott as the winner. From the beginning it was obvious that he was their favorite, and with every decision lying in their hands; who goes, who stays, the audience vote is just a joke and to ignore their opinion is absolutely ridiculous and rude. He was never the best, but Sausage was. They can't fool us. The fact that America voted for Sausage and he still lost means they're not even trying to hide it. I knew that the show was fixed, but I knew if Scott won that there's no reason to even watch.moreless
  • this show has become total crap

    I think i am done with this show - it started out being about a great tattoo competition - and now its just another bitchy reality tv show, complete with cat fights and name calling. The judging is TOTAL BULLSHIT!!!!!! I know aren't going to always agree - and i know judging is subjective - but come on - their should be some criteria! They don't judge based on what the challenge was half the time- sometimes they base it on past work - sometimes not??? - makes noooo sense at all. The guest judging is ridiculous, the team tattooing is ridiculous, and the finale on every season just keeps getting worse - cause it is sooo obvious it doesn't matter what happens - they already have a winner . why did scott win? in season one - they told tommy he didn't win because he had one bad critique during the show - sooo even though he was more well rounded and his finale pieces were the best - he still lost to shane - who only ever did black and grey ( even the judges said so) but yet shane still won?? - soo, why didn't sausage win - scott had bad review and sausage never had worse tattoo - so why did scott win - im glad the entire audience was booing - its a shame - it was a great idea - and could have been a great show!!!!moreless
  • WTF! The judges all need to be fired!

    Sausage was the clear winner, his composition was well balanced, great line quality, good color choices, the proper far the better tattoo artist and the audience approved it! Scott did not do his best work on the last tattoo. If the winner is based on total scores, a running tally should be posted each week listing the artist's weekly and total points. Other wise the judging looks like bullshit! I won't watch the show anymore if the judging can not be objective, the audience understands the judges make a subjective critique, but the scores are a Charley Manson review!moreless
  • New Judges are needed!!

    Been watching since episode 1 however THIS SEASON (4) has made me realize that its too much bull***

    To continue doing so!Previous reviews indicate Nunez treated Kyle the SAME WAY he treated Tartu Baby

    (whose tattoos were AWESOME BTW) when she was voted back. Mentioning Kyle BY NAME during an elimination when he wasn't even there was in SUCH POOR TASTE on his part!! maybe he has been out of the field too long and he should reaquaint himself on how much things have changed since he sold out!! SCOTT

    winning tonight was SUCH CRAP! His tattoo style is boring and his Master Canvas had way too much orange!!! Sausage or Matti SHOULD HAVE WON!! Scottdidn't deserve it in any way! He bullied his way through the competition and they rewarded him for it!!! Then again TOMMY of Tattoo Nightmares deserved to win and didn't!! Soooo happy he's doing well with his OWN SHOW!! What does THAT tell you!! Can't even remember the guys name who won that season but I KNOW TOMMY!! Shows gone downhill since! Adios InkMaster!!moreless
