The Flash Challenge is designed to give the winner an advantage in the Ink Challenge. This challenge focuses on the creativity of an artist. It's like making a tattoo without the skin and ink. The challenge is to tell a story of an emotional time in their lives using flowers. Flowers are very colorful, so it should be easy for the artistic mind to run wild. Unfortunately it wasn't easy for Roman at all. All he did was complain about how hot it was and talk about how he "turns people into robots." The Winner of the Flash Challenge was Kyle with his wonderful bouquet of flower. They represented the love for his girlfriend and child at the top and the frustration of being away from them at the bottom.
The Ink Challenge specializes in tattoo time management, creativity, and Skin satisfaction. The clients on Best Ink are called Skins, pretty obvious why, right? The competitors had 4 hours to complete a tattoo that reflects an emotional time in their Skins lives. Kyle won the Flash Challenge, so he got to choose his skin first. The guest judge was Aaron Carter!
Charlie: An owl in the night holding a shattered pocket watch with script saying "Live Though This"
London: Chinese guardian with great shades of red, blue, and gold.
Nicky: Combine death of one and birth of another with a rose blooming out of a skull.
Jessica: A sweet samurai to show the warrior within her Skin's son.
Jon: Advertised the Skin's brother on his favorite drink, Tequila.
Alexis: A colorful secret garden with a script picked out by her Skin.
The winner of the Ink Challenge was Charlie. She truly deserved it and that owl was amazing. When it came time for someone to go home, Roman threw himself at the bottom and said this show just wasn't for him. Good luck with you robot thing buddy!
