Ink Master, Spike TV’s hit show, was back in Newark last August to film season 2 of the reality show competition. The production was primarily set at the Ironbound Film and Television Studios, which also housed the contestants during the competition phase.
Host and judge Dave Navarro, rock star (Jane’s Addiction) and tattoo aficionado (see picture above), guided the show’s 16 talented finalists on a series of challenges both in studio and outdoors in the NY/NJ area. The tattoo artists competed for $100,000 and bragging rights. Judges also included Chris Nunez (“Miami Ink”) and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo) and other guests.
The inaugural season of “Ink Master” was filmed last year at the WISSOMM center and contestants lived in a brownstone in the University Heights area.
Ink Master Season 2 included 8 episodes, and screened Tuesdays on Spike TV from October 9 to November 20.
We look forward to welcoming “Ink Master” back to Newark for another terrific season in 2013!
