Virgin Inks anyone?
The Flash Challenge starts in the beautiful Underwood Farms. The challenge is to create a stylish wedding band for guest judge Dean McDermot! Most people know Dean and his amazing wife Tori Spelling. Many of the competitors swung their bats at family and they were in the right ball park.Jessica made a tribal piece that could be worn by the bride and the groom because it was their names. Nicky need a little boost on his sketch and, thanks to Alexis, he designed a piece that's until death while Jon's is always forever. Alexis decided to make a lock and key with Tori and Dean's wedding date on it.London was all about family and Charlie tied the knot with a ring connecting love, marriage, and children. My favorites were Charlie's, Alexis', Jessica's and London's bands. Dean liked many of the bands, but the top two were Alexis and London. Alexis won the Flash Challenge and her reward was and extra hour to tattoo her Skin in the Ink Challenge.
The Ink Challenges are always full of surprises. This time the competitors have to tattoo virgin Skins or skins who have never had a tattoo before. Everyone is well aware of how difficult it can be and on top of that they'll be tattooing two Skins instead of one. The Skins are all present with their best friends and the competitors only have 4 hours to complete their work. Except for Alexis, of course, she has 5 hours. Everyone's doing great with the adjustment, except poor Nicky. His Skin won't sit still for nothing and she might cost him the challenge. The Ink guest judge was Taryn Manning!
Charlie: Wonderful feather and flock of birds flying away to symbolize Nola's life then and now. Her best friend recived a beautiful cactus flower with the same flock of birds.
Jon: Created two burning hearts to symbolize the intensity of love.
London: A nice feather with nice colors.
Alexis: Army Skulls. One with a Parachute to symbolize the Airforce and one with Binoculars to symbolize a scout.
Nicky: A sweet swallow symbolizing the migration of friendship always returns.
Jessica: Roller blades of careers. One worn and at the end while the other fresh and new to the scene.
Kyle: Doves to keep the Skin's mother in memory forever.
The judges were proud of the amount of work done in such a short time, but two competitors stood out. Alexis and Jon had the two best tattoos of the night. In the end Alexis came out victorious. However, the bottom happened to be a 4-way tie between Jon, Kyle, London, and Jessica. The judges have been very generous, but it was time for Jessica to go home. Was it really time for Jessica to go home? Who would you send home and why? Voice your opinion and join us next week for the next episode of Best Ink.
