Bad Ink is a reality television series featuring Dirk Vermin and his best friend Rob Ruckus. Vermin is a professional tattoo artist and owner of Pussykat Tattoo in Las Vegas. Ruckus is long time rocker and tattoo aficionado. The premise of the show is simple. Each episode, Vermin and Ruckus travel the streets in search of Sin City's worst tattoos. The show features a diverse mix of people ranging from students to senior citizens. The one thing that they all have in common is a tattoo that they regret. A big part of the show is the comical exchanges between Vermin and Ruckus as they poke fun at people's terrible tattoos. In exchange for being the butt of a few jokes, Vermin uses his skills to fix people's 'bad ink'. At his shop, Vermin transformers unwanted tattoos into body art masterpieces. For all his talents, Vermin isn't perfect and occasionally misspells something on a tattoo. The relationship between Ruckus and Vermin is what sets Bad Ink apart from other tattoo reality shows. Vermin has described Bad Ink as more of a buddy comedy than anything else. The series also shows off Vermin's softer side as a father raising two girls.
