I force myself to watch Ink Master.
Honestly, it’s mostly just to be able to make Dave Navarro jokes. (I call him ladyface. Not going to lie. Totally do) Occasionally they have a good guest judge (Mr. Stell!) that makes me not hate it, but for the most part I watch it because I can’t not. The entire time I’m watching scratchers get reputations, I’m usually thinking “god, there needs to be a new episode of The Gypsy Gentleman airing soon’.
Finally… there is.
This time Marcus sets his sights on London, during the Jubilee.
The formula got GG is a little different than most of the Tattoo media out there- Marcus picks a city and two artists and spends the episode aquatinting us with it all. It’s more of a travelogue than a documentary- but it works. So well.
The London episode features Valerie Vargas (who’s also the subject of a three episode Tattoo Age Arc this year) and Ian Flower. I really hope that Marcus keeps these up- I for one would love to snag a DVD set of all of the Gypsy Gentleman’s adventures!
