It seems the trend of reality television shows will be around for a while. All networks have their own niche in the reality television market, including A&E. The first time I saw or even heard about Inked on A&E was from the tattoo circles. Ever since the show premiered on July 20th, I have watched every single episode, sometimes multiple times because I have my TV on when I work.
Since not everyone has the luxury of TiVo in their homes, I would like to narrate a recent episode of the show for you:
Christina wants tattoo, actually airbrushed onto her prosthetic leg.
Thomas accepts the job and gave estimated time of two days.
The air compressor is busted because Thomas forgot to refill it with oil.
Instead of looking for replacement (or while waiting for replacement), Thomas decides to take this $100,000 Hyundai show car out to drive in the rain and kill some time.
Thomas, watch out for that curb!
Of course, he wrecks the car and ripped the front wheel off. Nice going, Thomas “Andretti”.
Meanwhile Thomas is off camera to tell his business partner about the loss, here is Jesse:
“Hi, I am Jesse. Girls think I am creepy, and I would have never gotten laid if weren’t for my tattoos. Oh I work in the shop too. I do tattooing so I can get closer to chicks and if I am lucky I would see their tits and asses.”
What a big surprise.
Warehouse gets robbed. You would think they would have better security system to guard the place, but no…
To lighten up the mood, here is a lovely pseudo lesbians’ couple. Ms. Cleavage wants an Asian symbol for “happiness”. Are you fucking kidding me, you “walking silicone bags”?! Asian symbol?! It is a Chinese character for “happiness”. FYI, there are more than two countries in Asia.
Jesse is secretly masturbating in his pants while doing tattoo on Ms. Cleavage.
Finally Thomas sits down to do some work that he promised almost two months ago.
The Pick Up. (Christina does not look too pleased)
Thomas has the balls to say this to Christina: “leave it for another six months until it gets done…” It took him almost two months to paint one Virgin Mary, one spider web, and dagger in the heart. I am surprised that she did not smash him with the prosthetic leg for being such irresponsible A-hole that he was. Thomas, there are two things you need to learn: ethics and responsibility.
I am sorry to say this but I am not impressed at all.
