My canvas is passed out
in my chair. Hello? [bleep]. Hello? Hi. Hi. You know you were
just passed out, right? I was sleeping. I think you were doing
a little bit more than sleeping. Probably not the best idea
for you to get tattooed today. It’s my judgment call.
I can’t have you stay here. What the heck am I supposed
to do–tattoo my own butt crack? Are you serious? – Hey, Chris, let’s have a chat.
– Yeah. Obviously,
this isn’t your fault. In order to move on
in this competition, you’re gonna have to tattoo
the same exact body part. We have arrangements
to get another canvas in here. Once your canvas arrives,
you’ll have three hours of design time
and six hours to tattoo. – I’ll take that. Thank you.
– All right, buddy, good luck. In this competition,
you must tattoo. So now Chris is gonna have
to rethink his entire concept for somebody else
that’s coming in, and this could definitely
throw someone off their game. Artists, you have six hours
to create an illusion. And your time begins now. All right, let’s do it. I’m gonna go ahead
and put the stencil on you. (Chris)
In order to achieve an optical
illusion tattoo properly, you’re going to really have
to know the anatomy and dynamics of the image that you’re tattooing
and the body part that you’re placing it on. Dude, that’s perfect
on the first try. If you’re not a genius
doing these tattoos, you will not succeed. Oh. Ah. I really do not like
the shell. There’s not much elements
besides the scales on her face that are going to make her look
like a mermaid. I just know my pain tolerance,
and I just want you to be able to have a finished piece. Whether I do a hand
or a hand with a shell in it, it’s gonna be
about the same amount of time. I have to show ingenuity
with this tattoo. If I start taking details out,
it might make no sense. I’m going head-to-head
with my mentor, Kruseman. I really, really just need
to win an elimination challenge. – Hi, guys.
– Hey, buddy. – How you doing?
– My final tattoo… before I go home-skie. I feel like I can’t win
for nothing, man. I’m just getting screwed
left and right. I have too much integrity
to give this lady a headless pinup
on the back of her head. I’m not gonna do it. Sometimes
you can’t be bought. This is the type of challenge that’s making me want
to throw in the towel.
