Best In Show: Katherine “Tatu Baby” Flores (Ink Master | Season 3)
In preparation for Ink Master’s third season, which begins airing on Spike TV this month, we asked the show’s contestants to complete a flash challenge of our own. To introduce you to the new crop—and reintroduce you to fan favorite Tatu Baby—we gave each artist a blank pinewood derby car to deck out. Unlike the Boy Scouts, we won’t be racing the cars; because we prefer form over function, this contest is all about the art. We’re going to let you be the judge of this flash challenge and choose the best design (and, like the Boy Scouts, we asked that the contestants’ dads not help out). Visit INKED’s Facebook page to vote for the car that you think best showcases the skills of a winner who will get to take home $100,000, a feature in INKED magazine, and the title of Ink Master.

INK MASTER MENTALITY:
“I’m coming in thinking that I have to do the absolute best job that I can each round.”
BREAD AND BUTTER:
“Photo-realism is what I feel I excel at. I will definitely try to capture what my clients want and add some frosting to the cake.’”
