The judges pull no punches this week and start off with Jesse saying that they do like his piece and he showed a lot of dimension but he lost it in some spots. Sebastian did a good piece as well but should have added more hair details. Sarah’s piece looks like a cover up even though she did a good job on the face and the edge details. Kat also did a good job and pulled a ton of tricks in the small amount of time she had. Jamie gets his ass handed to him because he doesn’t have tattoos. This is such a stupid time to bring this up as an excuse to send him home considering we are half way through the damn competition. After he gets beat up for not having any tattoos, they all agree that the piece looks good but there is a ton of wasted space where it looks blobby. Chris tells the artists that they aren’t going home for doing a shitty tattoo but for getting out-tricked. Jamie takes the time to complain about how tattooed people get judged for having them but how can they can judge him for not having any. He explains that he likes nice things and is willing to wait until he can get exactly what he wants and that he has earned his stripes for his 17 years of work. Jamie and Steve speak about Jamie’s plan to stay in the game by stating he has been consistent and that Sarah’s piece looks like a cover-up.

The judges argue over Jamie and Sarah being on the bottom and who ultimately should go home. Oliver says that Sarah did a better face on her wolf and that he would rather wear Sarah’s piece. Chris defends Jamie saying that Sarah’s looked like a cover-up with Forrest on his side. Oliver calls in Kat, Steve, Jamie and Sarah for judging where Steve and Kat end up on top and Steve wins. Jamie says that he has been more well-rounded and consistent and that this is his first time on the bottom. He also says that at least his piece can be fixed while Sarah’s will always be a dark spot.
Jamie is going home and again it’s the worst decision they could have made. One week they sent home Mark because he was on the bottom more than Sarah was and this week they send home Jamie for…not having tattoos. Jamie is pissed and rightly so but I think he’ll be okay in the end.
Who are you voting for each week and who would you like to see win? Did you think kicking Jamie out was because of his tattoos or because of a bad tattoo?
