Ink Master begins with a Flash Challenge, a simple task of tattooing but has contestants utilising skills related to tattooing in an unusual way.
The competing rounds are based on criteria such as creation of a skull tattoo, technical precision, colour tattoo, shading, transforming a flat tattoo into a unique one, three dimensional design among others. The unique challenges will test the artists’ technical skills and on-the-spot creativity where they must create and execute an original tattoo.
