Lots of ink, fighting, and tears.

Why Ink Master is Guilty Pleasure Gold

Like most kids that grew up in the 2000s, I've perfected the craft of binge watching reality shows. From American Idol , to Flavor of Love , to I Love New York , to Rock of Love , to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition , my reality television taste is all across the board. Now that I'm 25 and addicted to tattoos, I discovered a world that combines my love of ink and reality tv. Ink Master . It's a great show, a guilty pleasure, an underrated one at that. It has overwhelming negative reviews on IMDB and conspiracy theorists picking it apart, calling it fake. Fake or not, Ink Master has binge worthy reality television down to a science. Allow me to explain:

1. The tattoos are pretty amazing. Whether or not you like tattoo competitions, the tattoos are damn near magical.






Does it matter who wins with works of art like these?

2. And the bad tattoos are REALLY bad. Brace yourself.




3. The show is quotable as (censor bleep).

This is why I love tattoos *ugly cries*.

6. If you love drama, the spin-off Ink Master Redemption will give you an overdose of reality tv drama and some fantastic tattoos. Dave Navarro is Dr. Phil and Jerry Springer all in one.

7. And the other spin-off, Ink Master Angels , uses tattoos to help others while finding competitors for future seasons of Ink Master.

8. But for real, I live for reality tv fights. Another spin-off, Ink Master: Grudge Match, has the artists settle scores with tattooing. I'm excited for the sass.
