These judges will give the candidates very difficult assignments that will put their ingenuity and accuracy to the test. Furthermore, the top prize is a cash award of $250,000.
According to the show’s official synopsis:
Contestants in Ink Master compete in a variety of tattoo challenges that not only put the artists’ technical talents to the test but also their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute a unique tattoo on command. Tattooing skills such as shading, line, and proportion, and styles like photorealism, tribal, American traditional, and pin-up are included in the challenges.
Dave Navarro of Ink Master was fascinated by a guitar when he was a teenager.
53-year-old Dave Navarro is an actor, singer, composer, and guitarist. Dave, who was born on June 7, 1967, was captivated by a guitar throughout his adolescence. This inspired him to enjoy a broad range of musical genres. In 1986, he joined Jane’s Addiction on the recommendation of his boyhood buddy Stephen Perkins, who had just joined the same band. Navarro worked with the band for four studio albums and garnered a lot of accolades for his contributions. In fact, becoming a member of the well-known band was one of Dave’s professional highlights.
The guitarist was linked with three highly praised albums with Jane’s Addiction, Jane’s Addiction (1987), Nothing’s Shocking (1988), and Ritual de lo Habitual (1990), which was also the band’s last production together. One of the primary causes of the band’s breakup was the band’s drug addiction. In truth, Dave was fighting a heroin addiction following the divorce. The band parted amicably in 1991, during the inaugural Lollapalooza event and at the height of their career. Despite the fact that the band had disbanded, the Ink Master star continued to pursue his ambition.
Later, he became a member of other spin-off bands such as Deconstruction and The Panic Channel, and in 2001, he released a solo album titled Trust No One. Furthermore, while Navarro was a member of Deconstruction, he continued to collaborate with bassist Eric Avery and drummer Michael Murphey. He did, however, leave the band after a few months.
Following their split, Navarro joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1993 as a replacement for guitarist Jesse Tobias. However, he soon parted ways with the band. He worked with the band for one studio album, One Hot Minute (1995), before departing in 1998 owing to artistic disagreements. Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock, and Andrea Richter executive produce Ink Master, while Donny Hugo Herran is an executive in charge of production for MTV Entertainment Studios. On September 7, viewers may watch the launch of Ink Master Season 14 on Paramount+.
