TLC has a new show called Tattoo Wars. It has been on for four weeks, though you would not know it because they are doing zero advertising and promotion for it.
Here’s the show’s description:
“Tattoo Wars pits the best tattoo artists of our time against each other in a head to head creation competition. In each episode we explore the world, legend and work of two internationally acclaimed tattooists. Then we travel to a huge tattoo expo where our stars, in three hours time, ink a tattoo on the skin of two willing clients. These creations have a common theme, such as a dragon, a calla lily, a sailor, a tribal gauntlet, or a hanya (Japanese devil mask) but are rendered in the unique style of each artist. As the show closes, thousands of show attendees vote for the creation they like the best and the winning artist takes home the Tattoo Wars trophy.”
The participating artists are (so far):
Mike Rubendall vs. Bugs (1st week)
Leo Zuluetta vs. Rory Keating (2nd week)
Oct 25, 8:00 pm- Nikko Hurtado vs. Steve Morris (3rd week)
Nov 01, 8:00 pm- Guy Aitchison vs. Aaron Cain (4th week)
Nov 08, 8:00 pm- Deano Cook vs. Tom Renshaw (This week!)
Nov 15, 8:00 pm- Seth Ciferri vs. Michelle Myles
On November 1st, it was a great war between two legendary tattooists – Guy Aitchison and Aaron Cain both sat down to ink the sleeves of a man in organic and wildly imaginative design.
It is better late then never, so this time don’t forget to watch the Tattoo Wars. Mark the date and timings in your calendar so that now you don’t miss the last two tattoo wars.
Somehow, there is less viewer ship than expected therefore, Aitchinson’s official website (hyperspacestudios.com) requests public to flood the inbox of TLC in order to tell the authorities that they like such tattoo wars.
Simply, mail at http://extweb.discovery.com/viewerrelations and raise your voice. I’ve made my contribution and have posted the issue here also to increase few more mails to pressurize them to air more body art programs with your support.
