London wins even though I think Alexis had the better piece. Jessica Junior says that she should have won because she’s the only one who embraced the white on black like Porcelain asked for. She goes on to say that she is tired of being the nerdy kid getting judged by the cheerleaders who don’t get her ideas. OMG…she really is Jessica Junior!
Kim and Joe turn up and Joe’s shirt is buttoned this time around. I really hate Kim’s hair throughout this episode…it just progressively gets worse and worse. Joe tells the artists that the stakes are very high and the winner of this challenge will have a guaranteed spot in the finals. The skins come in and Kim says they want an original tattoo to pay homage to the most influential artist of all time…Michael Jackson. I don’t understand why people want tattoos of other people on them that they personally do not know but whatever floats your boat I guess. Jon and Alexis are huge fans and Jon even attempts to moonwalk around the floor but his stupid boat shoes prevent him from getting a good grip. The clients were all randomly assigned and go to meet their artist.
London’s client is Chris and he’s in his 30’s but he can still remember how Michael started what music videos are today. He believes that Michael transcended race and was a true icon. He wants something iconic with religious tones and reveals that Smooth Criminal is his favorite song. Alexis has Katie Ann and she says that Michael sparked her interest in performing and wants to get back into dance again. Charlie’s client is Rocio and she feels a deep connection to Michael though she had never met him. Charlie suggests the iconic image of Michael’s shoes and to add the words “connected souls”. Jon’s client is Julie and she has been in love with MJ since she was 3 years old. She wanted glitter gloves so badly that when she couldn’t find them she glued glitter to a white glove she purchased. She proves to be challenging as she want to incorporate the glove, MJ and zombies because she apparently has a Day of the Dead/skull theme with her tats. She even brought along a zombie MJ doll complete with glitter glove. The skins leave so the artists can start their sketches and get some mentoring from Joe.
Joe meets with London who says that his client wanted the stoic Catholic pose and he thinks that he took on more than he should have. Charlie’s decided to add a swirl of musical notes around her piece and make it look like it was painted with a brush. Joe tells her that he is very critical of that style and that her proportions need to be on point. Alexis is doing an abstract piece that looks more like an ink blot. Jon says it’s too simple and Joe is not feeling it so she worries about what she has gotten herself into. Jon’s zombie MJ is not getting good remarks from Joe who says that it needs to look like Michael Jackson while Jon argues that his client wants a skull.
The inking begins and Jon takes his shirt off because his bony ass thinks that will turn his client on. What’s with Jon trying to hook up with all his Spanish clients? He says that it makes them feel more comfortable but I don’t know any female that is comfortable with sexual harassment from a 4 foot midget covered in ink. Just saying he’s getting a little close to getting sued for rape with his eyes. Oh wait it gets worse because she asks him which of his tattoos was his most painful one and he says the one above his magical place…I’m not making any peen jokes when Jon is concerned. I hate seeing midgets cry. Joe asks London how they are making out and I heard are you making out. I don’t know where my mind went with that one… Tattooing ends and everyone leaves London and Chris to continue making out for an extra hour.
