Premise
Bad blood stirs as tattoo guns spin in the fifth season of ``Ink Master.'' The competition begins with 18 tattooists -- and rivals alike -- linked by their love of the art form and their distaste for one another. Featuring convention circuit foes, a former boss vs. a former employee, brothers, and even two of the most infamous rivals in ``Ink Master'' history -- Joshua Hibbard and Jason Clay Dunn -- this go-around is more personal than ever. As usual, a $100,000 cash prize and an editorial feature in Inked magazine is awarded the player who best navigates various technical and on-the-spot creativity challenges. Renowned tattoo artist Chris Nunez (``Miami Ink''), veteran artist Oliver Peck and host Dave Navarro return as judges, joined each week by guest judges. In addition, the competitors obviously have to satisfy the ``human canvases'' -- the people on the show who are getting tattooed -- who again get to vote in the elimination rounds, helping to determine who is sent home.
