There is another new episode of Ink Master: Angels coming up on Spike Tuesday night, and this one features Rose, Cavan Infante, and Tai Often. What’s the setting? Think along the lines of Music City! The Angels (at least three of them, as Gia Rose is absent) arrive to Nashville in order to continue their quest of finding the next great tattoo artist. Once again, the winner among the three artists has a shot of making it onto Ink Master season 10 if they can beat one of the Angels in a Face-Off at the end of the episode.
We know that we’ve seen a good streak as of late of artists managing to beat the Angels — we’ve seen it twice in recent memory — but having it happen again this week could be an uphill battle. All three of the artists below had some flaws with their first tattoos.
Rose – In terms of backstory he is one of the most interesting artists here as he spent time in the Israeli military before coming to America and looking to turn his American Dream into a reality. He was able to do that by getting his tattoo business off the ground. Also, he likes to raise animals! Clearly, the man is staying busy.
Cavan Infante – He’s a guy who loves to do a wide array of comic illustrations and really prides himself on being original — he is also one of those guys who has an enormously high opinion of himself to the point where he doesn’t think that anyone can compete with him. He’s easily the arrogant artist of the week in that regard.
Tai Orten – Of the three artists she’s easily the most introverted — she doesn’t seem to be all that interested in trash-talking. Yet, she’s been doing tattoos for more than ten years and she considers herself to be fairly well-balanced.
These three artists all have to compete with bellybutton tattoos (seriously, who wants these?) and as we mentioned earlier, all of them draw mixed results. Tai probably has the best overall tattoo in our mind, mostly because she’s the only person who really did a tattoo with her canvas in mind. Rose and Cavan chose designs that weren’t very feminine — as a matter of fact, Cavan chose something that was almost aggressively masculine and it’s hard to imagine the canvas being that happy with it. He did succeed, however, in making it original — Tai’s tattoo was a mandala, and they have been done on Ink Master more times than we can count.
