‘Best Ink’ season 2, episode 9 preview: The final four tattoo surprising clients

Best InkWe are getting very close to the end of “Best Ink” season 2, and on Wednesday night’s new episode (airing at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time on Oxygen), the four contestants remaining in the competition are going to be taking on a very different sort of client than what they have already seen throughout the season. What’s the twist? Let’s just say that these are people that they know rather well already.

For the first time, the artists are going to have to tattoo loved ones who have come in and made a very major sacrifice: Give up their skin in order to further along the careers of someone they care about. When it comes to Teresa Sharpe’s boyfriend Chris, it’s an even bigger sacrifice since the guy has never gotten a tattoo before. (Does this make it more challenging for her? Probably.)

In addition to this, we see DJ Tambe’s wife and Alli Baker’s older brother, but for whatever reason Jerod Ray’s loved one is left out of the promo below. Let’s hope that it’s his girlfriend, since he did win a Flash Challenge a little earlier on this season with a piece of art that was inspired very much by her.

We still don’t know who is going to end up winning this competition, but we still feel that DJ and Teresa are locks for the finale pending some sort of catastrophe. Alli seems to be the biggest long shot, mostly since Jerod has come on strong after struggling around the midway point.

What are you hoping to see take place in this challenge, and who are you pulling for? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below! Also, you can head on over to the link here if you want to read our review of last week’s “Best Ink” episode.
