On last night’s episode of “Tattoo Nightmares,” titled “Birth Marks the Spot,” fans should remember Clint Cummings from the second season of “Ink Master,” as if anyone could forget that Mohawk. Rounding out the crew are Reese Hillburn, a contemporary artist from Southern California and High Noon, legally known as Samuel Suarez; the artist currently kicking ass on the Florida convention scene. These three tattoo artists are ready to take on the most outrageous tattoos and cover-ups on the East Coast.
The first client was David who had a very large back tattoo that was supposed to be a lion. Obviously the artist, using the term loosely, had no clue what a lion’s face looked like. High Noon won or lost the contest to do the tattoo. It is the largest cover up he has ever done. When it was completed, it was a ram with large horns and a mean face. David loved the job he did and will no longer have to be ashamed of the shoddy workmanship of the first tattooer.
Blair was next, who arrived in the shop with a birthmark on the back of his calf that was large and brown, and something he had all his life. He begged Clint to cover it, but he called Blair’s dermatologist to check and see if there were any reasons for not doing the tattoo. Once he got the go-ahead, he proceeded to do his best to match the color and make something that Blair liked. Clint was apprehensive about tattooing the birthmark, as he did not know how it would react when the needle went in, but when he was finished, Blair was so impressed with his anchor in an underwater environment. The birthmark was no longer an ugly reminder of his years of trying to wear clothes to cover it and the questions he received about it. Now he will be answering questions about this amazing tattoo.
Jamie came in to see Reese. She had an ugly biker-style tattoo on her upper arm. She wants something feminine. She would like a pair of pocket watches with her children’s time of birth on each. She loved the new feminine tattoo, that had beads and a bow surrounding the two pocket watches.
Thanks to incredible artists like, Clint, Reese and High Noon, these people are very proud and no longer victims of their “Tattoo Nightmares Miami.”
