‘Ink Master’ season 3, episode 5 preview: Tatu Baby given edge in scar challenge

Does Tatu Baby have an edge this week? -This season of “Ink Master” has a lot of talent within the group this year, where as seasons past we’ve felt there were one or two stand outs and everyone else was just treading water trying to stay alive in the competition.

Although Tatu Baby has an advantage over the other contestants in that she has been through the competition once before (last season) and has a better understanding of not only the judges, but also the process as a whole, she has struggled a bit with one or two of the challenges so far.

Coming up on Tuesday’s all new episode of “Ink Master” (airing at 10 p.m. on Spike TV) the flash challenge will be covering up their canvases scars focusing on “value” (being able to show dark and light in smooth transitions). There are a few preview clips up at Spike TV for the flash challenge if you just can’t wait to see how our tattoo artists do.

The theme for the elimination tattoo will be Day of the Dead tattoos… something that is Tatu Baby’s specialty. Some of the other contestants are already worried about her having an advantage or getting special treatment after not getting eliminated for her garter belt tattoo (which she wasn’t close to finishing, but what she did have was pretty incredible), so it will be interesting to see how they react when they learn that next week’s challenge is something that Tatu Baby is an expert at.
