We’re going to have a full review of tonight’s “Ink Master” finale a little bit later, but for now, we’re going to go ahead and say that one of our favorite twists of the entire series to date (or if nothing else, the live finales we’ve been seeing on the show the past few seasons) has to be an epic showdown between Sausage and Matti Hixson. Basically, the two artists decided to square off in a tattoo battle where the loser has to get a tattoo from the other one.
The funny thing about this “battle” is that throughout the first twenty or so minutes of the show, we saw host Dave Navarro go back and forth with both guys. It actually seemed like Sausage was done with his tattoo the whole time, while Matti continued to work on his.
At about 42 minutes into the finale, we finally had the showdown between the two artists. We do think that both of them did a really awesome job with these, but if we were Matti, we would’ve protested the audience in the studio being the people to decide this given that Sausage is far more popular across America. We probably liked Sausage’s tattoo a little better, but why go on about honesty and integrity in the studio? It’s a game! you do what you gotta do to win.
When the votes came in from the audience, it was pretty clear that Sausage had won and with that, Matti now has to walk around with a tattoo of Sausage’s for the rest of his life. So what did Sausage tattoo on Matti? A picture of a sausage with the hashtag #TeamSausage written inside.
