Miami Ink is a popular reality TV show filmed at their location in Washington Avenue, South Beach, Miami. This well known tattoo parlour is known to attract body art enthusiasts who are willing to apply any type of body art, from the most dainty to the wildest designs.
Here at Miami Ink, clients come and explain the type of tattoo they wish to get and give a detailed explanation of their life tales. It is amazing to watch the tattoo come alive while at the same time the client tells the artist their life story. Most of the stories being told here are truly inspiring. We get to live the experience, from the time the client enters the parlour, handing over their idea and watch as the idea is developed into a completed design and finally show off the end product.
This reality show serves as a great resource for beginners. Here you can learn how a simple idea can be transformed into a masterpiece suited for the individual. One very important decision you should make is where to place the artwork on your body and here on the show, you will see firsthand how this is done, and how hard it is to get a really good design.
Miami Ink also allows the clients to audition to appear on the show. One of the requirements for this is for you to have a good idea of the design you want, beforehand. They also allow you to choose which one of their artists you want to be tattooed by!
The different artists on the show who provides entertainment throughout are Ami James, Chris Garver, Darren Brass, Chriss Nunez and Yojiro Harada.
Kat Von D appeared as a full time artist for two seasons on the show until she left Miami Inks to create her own Show called LA INK.
Their various characters is a good mix and you get to see them as they put together great works of art and entertainment to keep people tuned in week after week.
