I think I had the name wrong for last week's elimination - was it David with the bad back? So, yeah, I agree with the above. Really, when I look at the finished products, mostly, I'm thinking about how another artist could either cover it up or add more to make it decent. A couple this week, Roland's, King Ruck, maybe even Randy's but not sure, could have been reworked and improved.
I'm tired of the artists getting to pick who gets which canvas with an eye to eliminating the artist...usually no concern for the tattoo the canvas ends up with. I wish they'd change that drastically. I think there may have been one or two challenges in past seasons where the artist who got to choose actually considered who would give the client what they wanted the best, and figured it would then be a fair competition. I think the judges should be more involved in "vetting" who gets what and helping to temper the canvas' expectations in order to get the best tattoo possible in their timeframes. There truly have been some hideous tattoos with no hope of covering up over the seasons!
