Seriously… What the F**K is this crap ???
No one can learn how to tattoo in two weeks!!!
It takes hard work, long (unpaid) hours & pure dedication to become a REAL tattoo artist.. Not to mention a skill level that you are just born with… Not just “taught” over two weeks…. Imagine the shit work that will come out of this lot !
Instead of shows like this and Miami Ink/ LA Ink etc, how about something that focuses on how difficult and cut-throat it is to actually get an apprenticeship and all the shit your average apprentice has to deal with before they’re even legal to permanently tattoo on someone!!!
This is not just about “entertainment” and honestly, let’s put aside the pure artistic talent that is required to become a DECENT tattoo artist… You cannot learn all there is to know about blood borne pathogens, cross contamination, health & safety standards all in two weeks. You are putting lives at risk!!!! Not only of that of the “tattoo artist” but also the person getting their “tattoo”.
Seriously… Only in AMERICA !!!!!!!!
