**This season, on Ink Master** it's all about hometown pride. Season 13 is Turf War, which has brought together tattoo artists from the East, West, Midwest and South regions of the United States. And in the first 10 minutes of the premiere, the judges don't waste any time splitting up the artists and making it known how apparent their stomping grounds will be in the competition.
After being welcomed into NYC by Lady Liberty herself, the artists are tasked with crafting tattoos representing the culture and style of their home States. They're also told that for the entire competition, they'll be competing on one of the four teams alongside a returning artist. For the West Coast, that's Angel Rose of season 11. For the East, it's Jimmy Snaz of season 11. For the Midwest, it's Frank Ready of season 10. And lastly, for the South, it's Jason Ellis of season 10.
During this preview, we're given a taste of the artists personalities and flair—especially when it comes to a past rivalry. That's right, after duking it out on Grudge Match, Jimmy Snaz and Angel Rose still have beef! Take a look at the preview below and stay tuned for the premiere of season 13 on Tuesday January 7th at 10/9c.
