Recording artist, entrepreneur, and humanitarian Pete Wentz guides 14 of the nation’s top tattoo artists through the cutthroat and wildly unpredictable world of tattooing as the season three host of Oxygen’s hit competition series “Best Ink.” Combining his raw musical talent, unique personal style, and love for tattoos, Wentz serves as a passionate and business-savvy role model to the eager and determined contestants.
Wentz is best known as the bassist and lyricist of the Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum band Fall Out Boy, which released the #1 album Save Rock And Roll earlier this year. Save Rock And Roll features the hits "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" and "Alone Together." Wentz recently completed a sold-out arena tour in support of the album and additional tour dates are in the works.
An entrepreneur by nature, Wentz also founded the record label Decaydance and discovered and signed influential artists including Panic at the Disco, Travie McCoy/Gym Class Heroes and Tyga. Wentz is at the helm of his own one-man DJ company, an independent production company, and is co-owner of Angels & Kings, a popular bar and nightlife destination in Chicago.
A Chicago native, Wentz currently resides in Los Angeles.
