Best Ink is a wonderful television show that is hosted by recording artist and American Idol finalist, Kimberly Caldwell. The show is meant to be a place for some of the world's best tattoo artists to bring about their creativity. Best Ink is a show that brings them all together to battle it out as the best tattoo artist on the planet. The wild world of tattoo artistry isn't very new, but this show depicts the lives of these artists and how they are literally coming up with the latest designs which go beyond the ordinary hearts or skulls used as tattoos. The show definitely delivers a much newer concept to reality TV since most television shows every now and then can be quite boring and way too common to watch. Best Ink brings together 10 of the best tattoo artists around the country and they compete over 8 long episodes for the chance to earn exactly $100,000. They literally showcase their tattoos over the episodes, and they are all judged over their quality and what they can deliver in each of their quality looking tattoos. The judges, Joe Capobianco, Sabina Kelly, and a guest judge every week, all decide who is going to be the sole winner. Each artist is forced to complete different kinds of challenges each time, which is what the judges use to see who is more capable of delivering the Best Ink. The show not only goes deep into how well they deliver their ink, but there are tons of different love stories in the show and tons of other sorts drama that goes well into each episode to add that special story and uniqueness to the entire show. There are thousands of different people who have found the show to be quite interesting and definitely very cool compared to other shows. Best Ink is a show worth watching. It isn't exactly a show for those who aren't so much into tattoos, but if you like art and you enjoy seeing people trying to win money for their talents, then you really need to consider watching Best Ink.
