Mark asks Jamie for advice on background colors but ends up ignoring his advice and going with a darker color. Jamie explains the obvious that Mark has no idea about color theory…maybe his ass is color blind and he only sees like…black and blue? The challenge finishes up and back at the loft Kay attempts to call out Clint for being disloyal since Kay looked out for Clint when he selected canvas’. Clint explains he gave harder shit to Jesse and Jamie and Steve of course says it is funny that Busta is complaining about being screwed over by others. Jesse explains that Clint is shooting for the middle players and asks where Kay would shoot. He replies that he’s gangsta and going to shoot up at the top because he’s going to die anyway. Tacky gets a lot of praise on her tattoo from the judges and Chris tells her that the ones underestimating her got knocked off. Sarah also gets praised from the judges for listening to their past critiques and improving. Mark, Kay and Sebastian are all around the bottom as well as Steve who is told by Chris that this could send him home despite his previous wins.
At the loft, Steve gives props to Sarah and Tacky with Jesse saying that his top three in order were Tacky, Jamie and then Sarah. Sarah gets mad defensive and says that the other tats were not as technical as hers and that she even looked up the definition of contrast to ensure she was on point. Shit you guys she used the dictionary as her defense. She even says that as a student of art she has a better understanding than everyone else. They all look at her like she has lost her damn mind and Steve says that she will likely have a mental breakdown if she doesn’t win. I wonder if she would have acted the same way if Cee Jay was still in the running or if there were more than one girl present. It’s really looking like jealousy at this point because Tacky is a good artist (in my opinion, I like her street style). Jamie then calls out Mark for not listening to his advice and Mark says he feels like he is embarrassing himself… which he totes is at this point.
Dave’s favorites are Sarah and Jamie which both displayed contrast the best. Tacky lands on the top as well and Chris says that while he knew Sarah was talented he had no idea that Tacky was too. I don’t know if that is a compliment or not but I’m sure Tacky would appreciate some acknowledgment. Kay and Mark are on the bottom along with Steve whose tattoo turned out too cartoony. As Oliver walks in Kay yells out that Oli must have missed him and tells him he will meet him downstairs right away. Oliver calls down Tacky, Kay, Mark and Sarah with Sarah and Tacky on top. Sarah looks like she is about to burst into tears when Tacky is declared the winner.
