Tuesday night’s Ink Master: Angels is set in Atlanta, and we have to say that the competition will be heated. Roger Parrilla, Grip, and Tim Furlow are all squaring off with one goal in mind: Trying to be a part of Ink Master season 10. One of them could have that opportunity, provided that they are able to win the Angel Face-Off — no easy feat, given that only one person this season has been able to do it so far.
Want to learn more about the three artists taking part? CarterMatt has some more information for you below:
Roger Parrilla – He co-owns the shop Black Owl Tattoo in Atlanta, and he does have a LOT of confidence in what he does. Makes sense though when you think about his resume. Roger has worked in the industry for years, is renowned for his new-school ability, and has several awards to his name. Of the three artists taking part tonight, he carries with him the most experience.
Grip – His story easily is one of the best this episode. He learned how to tattoo while in prison, and continues to work hard with everything he does to make a name for himself in the city.
Tim Furlow – What makes him so interesting is that he’s a self-admitted artist with plenty of mistakes. Even though he’s been tattooing for quite a while, he only considers the past four years to be especially effective. He decided to completely turn around his career and started to study under the right people. A very cool story that we haven’t heard before.
If you head over to this link you can see a preview for the episode and learn about the theme. The three artists are taking on a big challenge: Doing armpit tattoos in two hours. It’s a tough part of the body to work on, both in terms of design, application, and then also placement. Of the three our personal sentiment is that Roger is the best in terms of delivering something interesting and creative; however, Tim may have the most consistent color application. The cause for concern here with him is that EVERYONE within this franchise tattoos roses as opposed to whatever sort of expressive ice-cream cone design that Roger has going on here.
The reason that we don’t mention Grip is because his tattoo just doesn’t feel done. He needed more time in order to get it where it needed to be.
