'Ink Master' is back with its 13th season on Paramount Network and it's only going to get better. This year, the format is a tad different as much as it is interesting.  It's a turf war. If you'd like to know more about what the show has to offer, read on!  

Release date

'Ink Master: Turf War' season 13 is all set to premiere on January 7, 2020, at 10/9C on Paramount Network.

The show features America's top 20 tattoo artists who will battle it out among themselves to win the title of Ink Master, a grand cash prize of $100,000 and an editorial spread in the Inked Magazine. The twist here is they are not going to be contesting head-to-head but in teams of four representing the four regions of America -  East, West, Mid-west, and South. This makes it even more interesting because one can expect variety in the process of tattoo designing, including approach and aesthetics. Each of the artists will have multiple chances to highlight their strengths. While some specialize in watercolor, neo-traditional, black-and-grey, there are artists who are pro at color realism, surrealism, fine line, and more. The talent is huge and therefore, there's going to be a lot of ego clashes. The contestants will have to remember that even though there's only one winner, the initial stages will require them to play as a team and therefore, the overconfidence, and ego have to be kept at bay.
