So those of you familiar with season 1 of Best Ink know that returning judge Joe Capobianco can be, shall we say, intimidating and a tad critical. But he's just one big teddy bear, seriously. Just look at these cute pics of the curmudgeonly arbiter when we caught him relaxing behind-the-scenes. Oh, and there are a few close-ups of his tats, too.
How can you be afraid of this guy?
He looks quite satisfied in this photo. Maybe after ripping a contestant a new one?
Yeah, it looks like he might be ready to assess another contestant performance. Come and get it.
Aw, just kidding.
Is that a sexy World War II nurse?
Good morning heart. ...? Stay tuned for the backstory on that one.
And mark your calendars for the premiere of Best Ink 2 on Wednesday, April 3 at 10/9c!
