Spike presents a new series, Ink Master: Angels.
It was the alliance that changed Ink Master. In season 8 of the Spike reality show, the female tattooists rejected sabotage and dirty tricks in favor of mutual support and friendship. Now four of the best have taken to the road as part of Ink Master: Angels.
They’re on a whirlwind tour across the US. Today they’re at a hip bar in Austin, with season 8 winner Ryan Ashley Malarkey poolside, braving the 100-degree-plus temperatures. Inside, third place runner-up Kelly Doty and fifth place winner Nikki Simpson are beating the heat (Gia Rose, who came eleventh, is back at the hotel). It’s not all fun and relaxation, as the quartet are on the hunt. At each of the 10 city stops for Angels, locals will challenge them: if they beat the veteran, there’s a place on Ink Master season 10 waiting for them.
