No Payne, No Gain

Catching Up With the Ink Master Winner

Fresh off winning Season 10 of Ink Master alongside his coach DJ Tambe, Josh Payne is finally here to set the record straight. You may have already formed an opinion of the upfront and unabashed tattooer from upstate New York, but there's more to him than waht appears onscreen. Although he may have been portrayed as the ruthless competitor of the season, Payne went in with a game plan and did what he could to secure the title of Ink Master. And along the way, he learned a lot about himself as a tattoo artist and as a man. We caught up with the victor of Ink Master: Return of the Masters to learn how he successfully claimed the grand prize and how the fans at home can get a Josh Payne original for themselves.
