About Best Ink
Oxygen’s hit tattoo competition series “Best Ink” returns for season three with more artists, bigger challenges, and extra attitude. Returning with Fall Out Boy bassist and tattoo enthusiast Pete Wentz (@petewentz) as the host, this series lays bare the cutthroat and wildly unpredictable world of tattoo artistry as 14 of the best artists from around the country compete for $100,000 and a cover story in Tattoo magazine. The judges’ panel is also back with world-renowned tattoo artist Joe Capobianco (@whatsnottalike), international pinup model and tattoo removal shop owner Sabina Kelley (@Sabina_Kelley), and distinguished pinup and portrait tattoo specialist Hannah Aitchison (@hannahaitchison).
“Best Ink” takes the competition to a whole new level this season with unique challenges- from wrecking a car at a demolition derby to creating 3D artwork, as well as creating visually stunning biomechanical tattoos that show skin pulling away from the body to reveal biomechanical bones. Season three also brings fresh new guest judges including Hannah Aitchison’s brother, tattoo artist and painter Guy Aitchison; legendary special effects artist, Glenn Hetrick; and surfing icon Laird Hamilton.
