Genre: Reality, Art
Premise: The seventh season will be a lucky one for the tattooist who artfully navigates various technical and on-the-spot creativity challenges to beat 15 other competitors. In addition to eight newbies, this season returns eight of the series' favorite artists, with one introduced each week prior to an elimination challenge. As usual, a $100,000 cash prize and an editorial feature in Inked magazine is awarded to the ultimate winner, and judging is headed by renowned tattoo artist Chris Nunez (``Miami Ink''), veteran artist Oliver Peck and host Dave Navarro. In addition, the competitors obviously have to satisfy the show's ``human canvases'' -- the people getting tattooed -- who again get to vote in the elimination rounds, helping to determine who is sent home.
The final three artists reveal two master canvases; eliminated artists return and confront each other for the first time since the competition; a winner is crowned.
