This one was for all the marbles (plus the $100,000 and cover of Tattoo Magazine!) After Alayna was eliminated in the Flash Challenge, Top 2 finalists Karly and Darnell were tasked with creating a full back piece each, in just two eight-hour sessions. Karly's skin wanted to represent his journey coming out of the closet after being raised in a Christian family. Darnell's skin wanted to represent the struggles he and his family faced being raised by a single parent. In the end, Karly's piece impressed the judges just a little bit more and she won the title of Best Ink! Do you agree with the judges' final decision? Vote in the poll below!
