Best Ink

Are you ready for the New Year? We are! In fact, we're already gearing up for some major excitement in 2011, including so new shows that we're sure you're going to love. One show that's been greenlit for development is "Best Ink" (working title), which will highlight the art of tattooing in a competition reality series.

Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, at Oxygen Media said, "Many of our viewers choose to express themselves through the ever-growing phenomenon of body art. We hope to capture the best and brightest tattoo artists and celebrate this unique art form."

Capturing the drama and culture of the tattoo scene, "Best Ink" will feature 12 top tattoo artists as they compete for a cash prize and bragging rights. These unique artists will produce bona fide masterpieces on skin -- something rarely seen in the competition world. The permanent artwork will be created for -- and on -- real people in a variety of challenges to showcase the artists' talents. The drama continues after hours once back at home, where viewers see the artists fight to stay in the competition each week as the stakes get higher and the challenges become more difficult. Only one artist will win the ultimate prize of BEST INK. If you’re interested in being on "Best Ink," check out the casting page here or attend one of these open casting calls:
