Show Summary

This show about the tattoo shop "Miami Ink" takes viewers inside the world of tattooing, showcasing both the artists and their clients. It gives an in-depth look at the emotional stories behind the tattoos, and the meanings people attach to them. Folk from all walks of life come for tattoos, from punk rockers, to South Beach socialites, to celebrities. The series follows four master artists: Ami James, Chris Garver, Darren Brass, and Chris Nuñez, and their apprentice Yojiro Harada. The four originally met ten years ago when they all studied in Miami under the world famous tattoo artist, the late Lou Sciberras. During their apprenticeship they all lived and worked together, becoming the best of friends. Then they went their separate ways and opened up their own tattoo parlors in Los Angeles, New York, Connecticut, and South Beach. However, they are now realizing their dream of reuniting and opening their own tattoo parlor together as partners.

    When I first started watching the show, I absolutely loved it. There is no doubt, that this show is not great or the people who perform the act of tatooing are not absolutely gifted, however, over time, it becomes kind of like the same old same old. Every show is almost the same. Tatoos are great, but yet some underlying story line is missing. And adding some half nacked girls is not going to fix this. I am convinced that if there was more background on the artist, home life, love life, night life,etc this show could go on and on. We need something new and fresh to keep going!!!!moreless

    I don't think I have watched more than 10 minutes of Miami Ink, but I am kind of glad I don't watch it nearly at all. From what I've seen, the base of the show gets rather old within minutes. I think some of the tats looks cool, but other than that, it gets boring after a bit of time. One thing that I think is unique is that there aren't too many shows in the business that are all about inking. Overall, a show I hardly watch, but not really bad either. Just not really for my liking. Thank you.moreless

    Miami Ink is a tattoo parlour. Customers will come in and get tattooed usually to mark a special occasion or for a serious reason. While they are tattooed they tell their stories and we get a little idea of why they want the tattoo. Sometimes they'll have celebs come in as well.



    The characters who run the shop are also given a lot of screen time as they design the tattoos and we get to know a bit about them. Yoji the apprentice in particular and his life with his girlfriend is followed and in one episode you learn that Ami used to be in the navy and he is doing a special Tattoo day for the troops. The Tattoos are usually amazing and very detailed and I have to admit that I really like Kat's stuff who does portraits. A different type of Tattoo to what everybody else seems to do. Most of the tattoos have sentimental value but nothing says that like a portrait of your new baby and your partner tattooed on your ribs.



    Great show and one of my most favourite reality programmes.moreless

    I loved this episode as well as all the other ones. The only thing is I didn't know this was the final episode :( My question is where is Miami Ink at, will the TV show ever come back??? I am such a big fan of Miami Ink. Please, Please, Please bring this great show back. I would definitely like to know what happened to each person and what they are doing. Is everyone still tattooing or something else? If there will be no more Miami Ink, will they be doing another reality show in the future? If anyone could let me know anything about where they are now, that would be just wonderful!!!moreless
