'Ink Master: Turf War': Fans think Hiram was way better than Jason with the compass rose tattoo
Jason's created a compass rose in trash polka style with a splash of bright red thrown into the mix and it won him accolades from the judges.
A lot of drama went down in this week's 'Ink Master: Turf War' episode, with contestants coming out with their emotions, vulnerabilities, and their fierce need to win the title. Jason Elliott was one of them. He was enthusiastic and prepared to take on challenges head-on.
The show began with contestants working their way through the flash challenge, which had all four teams use postcards as a means to create an image on a tour bus. They had only six hours to wrap it up and it was tough putting everything together with the sun shining bright. But team South won it fair and square with their 'beach at sunset' piece. And earned itself the opportunity to assign canvasses to remaining contestants and also pick an artist for elimination.
Happy with the win, Jason had a little meeting with his team, said they have to define enemy lines now that there are live grenades (hinting at the benefit they've access to as part of their flash challenge win) at their disposal. Post the pep talk, the teams got to work on their compass roses and at the end of it judges declared Jason's as the best of the day. However, Hiram Casas seemed to be a close competition with his bottle and compass piece, which was extremely nautical and also very different from what the rest had to offer.
Fans too thought Jason's trash polka style compass rose tattoo with a splash of bright red thrown into the mix was not a match when compared to Hiram's work.
"How in the HELL did the judges pick Jason’s as the tattoo of the day?! His lines didn’t match up, his circles were different sizes based on where the color was, and they were wobbly! #InkMaster Hiram was the clear winner for this challenge," a fan wrote.
"Really thought they'd pick @hiramksas or @artbyangelrose over Jason's but whatever #InkMaster," another wrote.
"Jason's tattoo was good but Hiram should have won tattoo of the day. #InkMaster," a viewer expressed.
