On the Sixth episode of “Ink Master,” the competition continued to heat up.


Following a flash challenge in which the Masters tattooed under the chin, team members were then tested on adaptability. In the end, the judges felt that Lil’ D (Artist at Cap Szumski’s World Famous Timeless Tattoo in Atlanta, GA) did not have what it takes to be the next “Ink Master.”
