The search for Britain's best tattoo artist is the premise of a new competition show, Tattoo Artist of the Year, to air Tuesday, April 4th, on UK TV network E4.
The new series will follow a group of 10 tattooers from across the UK as they go head-to-head on a series of challenges designed to test their adaptability, creativity and technical skill.
Competitors will present their work to be judged by Rose Hardy and Jay Hutton, two accomplished, professional tattooers with specialties in different fields.
Each episode will focus on a different style of tattooing ranging from Neo-traditional to Japanese, Realism, Portraiture, and everything in between. The weakest performances will face elimination as the challenges become more difficult, until only one remains to claim the title of Tattoo Artist of the Year.
There will be melt-downs. There will be blood.
Tune in for the premiere Tuesday, April 4th at 9pm. Only on E4.
