Watch How Far Is Tattoo Far?
- 2 Seasons
How Far Is Tattoo Far? is a unique and entertaining reality show on MTV that tests the trust and limits of friends, family members, and even couples, by asking them to design and ink a permanent tattoo on each other's bodies. The show, which first premiered on October 11, 2018, has quickly gained a cult following for its shocking yet entertaining premise, and the charismatic hosting skills of Nico Tortorella, Nicole Polizzi, and Courtney Raimondi.
The show is filmed in a tattoo parlor where two participants, who are often close friends, siblings or a couple, share the same goal of creating a tattoo, but with different designs in mind. Before they unveil their respective tattoos, the participants sit down with Nico, Nicole or Courtney to explain the meaning behind their design and the reason for being on the show. This part of the show is often emotional and intense, as the participants share personal anecdotes that reveal the love, betrayal or grudges they hold for each other.
Once the participants have given their explanations, they are taken to opposite sides of the tattoo room, where they reveal their designs to each other. The first reaction is always the most entertaining, as the participants' faces fluctuate between shock, horror, and despair. The surprises of the tattoos are often high, with designs ranging from hilarious, to completely inappropriate, or even downright mean. Some tattoos are small and simple, while others cover entire body parts such as multiple legs or even their backs.
As the tattoo artist begins to ink the tattoo onto the participant's body, the animosity can rise as participants begin to realize the extent of their friendâs betrayals. Unsurprisingly, some tattoos turn out to be unappreciated, and tempers can flare. That's when the cast members come in handy, calming things down and bringing a touch of comic relief to the cringe-worthy moment.
Each episode has two parts, where at first, the cast and crew observe the process of creating the tattoos and then the participants reveal their tattoos to the show's hosts. These reveals are again a funny yet intense affair, as hosts get to see the final product and gauge the response of each participant. Some participants have broken down in tears while others put on a brave face and accept the tattoo.
Overall, How Far Is Tattoo Far? is an entertaining and unique show that explores the boundaries of friendship and relationships. While the show might not be for the faint of heart, it is a definite must-watch for those that enjoy the thrilling ride of unexpected drama and comedy. The hosts, Nico Tortorella, Nicole Polizzi, and Courtney Raimondi, are the perfect blend of comedic talent and empathy, striking an excellent balance between teasing the participants and showing genuine concern. The show invites viewers to witness the boundaries that should never be crossed in friendships or relationships, and how one person's honest intentions can hurt the other. Truly a rollercoaster of emotions, How Far Is Tattoo Far? takes viewers on a ride away from their usual mundane routine and adds a new depth to the reality show genre.
In conclusion, if you want to see how far people can go to get revenge on their supposed best friends, siblings, or partners, and enjoy dark humor, then How Far Is Tattoo Far? is the perfect show for you.
