Tattoo Artists of TLC'S 'MIAMI INK' Return for New Episodes
MIAMI, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Skin is in! With tattooing becoming more socially acceptable for men and women alike, the trend-setting series MIAMI INK returns to TLC. With a new special and 10 all-new episodes, artists Ami James, Chris Nunez, Chris Garver and Darren Brass -- along with apprentice Yoji Harada -- bring viewers more compelling stories and insights into the intriguing world of tattoo artistry and into their own lives. Popular artist Kat von D -- who joined the cast after Darren Brass broke his elbow last season -- also will return to SoBe for several more episodes, adding her expertise, creativity and funky personality to the mix. MIAMI INK: Hawaii airs Sunday, January 8 at 9 PM (ET/PT); the 10 new episodes of MIAMI INK will air beginning Tuesday, January 10 at 10 PM (ET/PT).
In MIAMI INK, TLC's cameras captured all the action as these best friends, life-long brothers and creative craftsmen banded together to open a successful tattoo shop in South Beach. From the hilarious-yet-relatable drama surrounding Yoji's continuing apprenticeship to the stress of managing the shop's finances to the challenge of wowing customers and continuously attracting new clientele, the guys have had their hands full.
During MIAMI INK: Hawaii, Ami James and Chris Garver travel to the Hawaiian island of Oahu to meet Keoni Nunez, a master of traditional Polynesian tattooing. This trip is both a professional and spiritual journey for Ami and Chris. Keoni teaches them about the ancient art of tapping and gives each of them a traditional-style tattoo. The guys also guest artist at a shop in Honolulu and tattoo six colorful locals. Along the way they meet up with their friends, Sunny Garcia and Rico Jimenez, professional surfers who take them to catch some waves, party at their beach house and mingle with the beautiful women of the island.
The debut season of the series, which premiered this July to praise
from critics and audiences alike, focused on the stories of the
clients visiting MIAMI INK. Audiences learned that there is more to
tattoos than meets the eye, and now they learn the same about our
artists. New episodes provide viewers with a deeper look into the
lives of the men who create these complex, beautiful and meaningful
works of art. From their family histories to their current romantic
prospects to their relationships with each other, viewers are given
a glimpse into the motivations and passions behind the artists'
