I enjoy watching it. Some of the tattoos are good - nothing compared to my Instagram feed but still half decent. The odd one is terrible (usually by Sketch) but there's the odd really good one, too. As others have said, it's a fairly positive tattoo show so better for the industry than bodyshockers etc.

It would be great to see a show on a mainstream channel that just goes round top studios showing the work the artists are doing without the drama of cover ups, emotional stories etc but that's what the public want, they're not all tattoo enthusiasts like us so I accept that they have to dramatise it a little.

I have tried in vain to pitch a show about the art. Like the one on community channel. I forget it's name.

And, dare I say it, this one by sketch is fairly cool (terrible photo though).

And remember, I said "good", not world class. If someone rocked up on here with those tattoos we wouldn't be screaming at them to laser.

Anyone got a pic of the elephant groin cover up that jay did, was a black/grey skull with a coloured paint splot behind it?
I want to save it for the paint splot idea.

Lou is definitely good but she's not on it any more. That backpiece is excellent.

Just wanted to revive this thread because I'm interested in your opinions...

I was reading some of the complaints and backlash against this show, particularly the 'Fuck Tattoo Fixers' campaign.

Some observations are valid - Sketch in particular isn't the world's greatest artist, and has been guilty of copying, etc, but others - like tattoo fixers is 'bringing the industry into disrepute' - what do you think?

I suspect that a lot of tattooists may be pissed off because three previously obscure artists are being touted as the country's best (hardly their fault - TV hype) but as I see it the many positives outweigh the bad.

Positive portrayal of tattooing on TV.
For possibly the first time ever, 3 tattooists are household names.
People who would otherwise have visited the local scratcher and said 'gimme a tattoo' are now thinking about looking for specific artists for specific styles of tattoo.

What (if any) are the downsides, and are the 'Fuck Tattoo Fixers' tshirt wearers really secretly a bit jealous?
