Ten of the nation's top tattoo artists compete against one another in an attempt to win the grand prize of $100,000 and a cover story in Tattoo magazine. The contestants compete in two challenges per episode -- one testing their overall artistic and creative skills with the other challenge testing their ability to produce bona fide masterpieces on skin. After each challenge, the tattoo artists are critiqued by head judge Joe Capobianco, judge Sabina Kelley and a rotating roster of guest judges. One contestant is eliminated by the judges each week until the last remaining contestant is declared the winner. Singer Kimberly Caldwell hosts.
