Back in June, Sherwood tattoo artist Matt O’Baugh and his apprentice, Katie McGowan, embarked on an inky journey to the top spot of Spike TV’s Ink Master.
Now, weeks after McGowan’s elimination, O’Baugh holds a spot in the show’s Top 3.
With the grand prize of $100,000 and an editorial feature in Inked magazine in mind, Black Cobra Tattoos owner O’Baugh won Tuesday night’s challenge on composition, contrast, saturation and details. The remaining artists were tasked with tattooing four different designs in four different ways, each drafting a design based on skulls that all the artists would tattoo on a human canvas within 90 minutes.
Winning the 15th challenge of the season automatically placed O’Baugh in the Top 3.
Be sure to tune in to the Oct. 13 live finale, a first in Ink Master history, to see which artist takes the grand prize.
