The judges walk around and look at all the work noting that Kay did better waves than Clint. This provokes Clint to say that the competition wasn’t about who could color a wave better but color in general. Steve is pissed that Tray got complimented because he feels like he should have been doing a good job the entire time. Busta fucks around with Nick as he tats to try and throw him off again…getting old at this point Predator. Round 1 goes to Tray and Round 2 goes to Sarah who FREAKS out that she won to the point that Oliver was trying to hold back giggles. She gets into Tray’s face shit talking about how he’s going down and how she has this because color is her thing. The piece they have to tat is a gypsy woman and they get 60 minutes this time.
Sarah (L) Tray (R)
Tray and Sarah get started on their tattoos and midway through Mark and some of the others come take a look at Tray’s work. They give him little hints and a heads up on the time left. This pisses off Sarah who wonders why she isn’t getting any help from the others. They are probably scared to death of your face at this point and no one likes you, duh. The judges discuss the pieces and Chris notes that almost all of the artists are scared of black which would have helped pop the colors. He then accuses Tray of creating his piece in a way that impressed only Oliver. I would do what I could to impress his ass too, it’s all good Tray. Oliver isn’t too impressed with Sarah’s because he knows it will have to be redone in a few years while the others really like Tray’s piece.
Tray ends up winning the round and then says it feels incredible to beat Sarah at something she thinks she is great at. Sarah, on the other hand, goes to the staircase to cry because she let herself down. At the loft, Kay starts in on Sarah saying she can’t handle the pressure. Sarah says she is better than Kay who replies that they are sitting next to each other and on the same level. Kay brings over Tray to re-enact Sarah getting in his face that she would win. She says she was just playing when she did that but once Kay tells her that she wasn’t playing when she lost she gets up and cusses him out and calls him a dick before walking off. Now who throws tantrums? As she walks away they all yell “Pressure” at her while Kay says that people like her lose because they can’t handle it. The artists all meet with the judges to find out what the Elimination Challenge is and when it is Tray’s turn to pick the canvas’ we get the infamous “bird shooting fire from my vagina” chick in the trailer. There is also a guy who wants a head tattoo which leaves Clint remarking that it is insane of them to want that and that it hurts and he knows this from experience. Tray’s strategy is to pair people with work that he believes they will excel at because he wants the victory to be that much sweeter. As the canvas’ announce who they will work with, there is a drum roll before vagina girl reveals that Jamie will work on her.
