The winner of the challenge is Clint and Busta says it’s a good thing because now they don’t have to watch him mope around kicking rocks. LOL I love that someone pointed it out because he really does mope around and kick rocks. Mark isn’t falling for Clint’s rollercoaster of emotions saying that it’s just part of his strategy. Jamie thinks that Clint will now target the big guys while Mark says that it might just end up that he shoots himself in the foot. Clint explains to Steve that he isn’t really an emotional guy and that it is a disguise. He is looking at the big guys who he knows will go far in the competition but who can’t handle pressure like Sarah. He knows that Mark, Kay and Tray are all at the bottom so he won’t go after them because they can weed themselves out.
The next Elimination challenge will focus on horror tattoos which excites Steve because that is a majority of his business. The horror tattoo is a broad style but the goal is to scare and it’s a good one for testing texture. Busta is a bit nervous as he has never done a horror tattoo before and that it’s looking funky for him. Clint gets up to match each canvas with an artist and says he wants to fuck with as many people as he can in one round. Sarah says that she can’t get screwed because she knows how to do a good tattoo and will prove herself no matter what…but I thought you didn’t have to prove yourself? Sarah ends up getting a tattoo that will be done in black and white which was set up to throw her off her game since she’s only done color up to this point. She takes it as a chance to prove that she can do it all instead of getting caught up. Jesse might be trying to mental fuck Mark when Mark shows him three different sizes for the canvas to pick. Jesse tells Mark to go big or go home and though Mark seems unsure of his time limit, he opts to just go big. Steve knows his biggest threat is Jesse but says that Jesse only has one style he excels at while Steve does 4-5 styles fairly well and that an Ink Master has to be well rounded…unless your name is Shane O’Neill.
Clint interviews that he isn’t into gory stuff and Oliver notices that his tattoo isn’t coming together that well and the proportions are wrong from the start. Sarah finishes her piece early and decides to continue adding more elements but Chris warns her that they had better be complete elements. Mark wants to put up all-star numbers instead of sitting on the bench and feels good so far about what he has accomplished. Tray is having a hard time with his tattoo but decides to fuck texture and just create something that is in his style and reads as a Tray tattoo. He says he has been having a hard time in such a stressful situation and doesn’t care anymore and that if he goes home on this tattoo that he is okay because he just wants to show the world what he can do. Time is called and back at the loft Tatu starts to call out Mark for not having done a lot of texture and deserving to be on the bottom. They get into a yelling match because Tatu Fatty is a typical chick who tries to win arguments by being the loudest person. Clint just sits back and says that if they fight and knock each other out then it just helps him in the long run to stay. He then says that he is only thinking about donuts.
