– You’re certainly more seasoned
at this than I am.– It sucks me
and John Collinsgot put on the bottom.I don’t want to have to
take out my teammate,but if that’s what I got to do
to stay in this game,then I’ma do it. – How are you doing, man? – Putting all the competition
and everything out of my mind. I’m just gonna do
a nice tattoo.I feel pretty confident
that I’ll be able toproduce a tattoo
that’s nicer than Sirvone’s.I can see how it might be hard
for some people to go against another teammate.
I don’t feel that way.I’m sending him home.♪– Let me show you what I got
for you–nice fighting rooster with a lot of texture. – Looks good.
– Nice. Team Nuñez picked black and gray
animal realism as a fair stylefor me and Nate Beavers
to fight over.– Dave’s so smart.That rooster has two totally
different textures in it.– Nate Beavers has been doing
animal realismfor about 25 years now.I’ve done about
two or three of them.This is an opportunity for them
to take me out.– I think Nate’s gonna kill it. – I think Nate’s gonna
kill it, too. – I have an owl.
– Cool. I can dig that.
Right on. – It’s gonna be bad-ass.A head-to-head tattoo
with Dave–this is what I’ve been
hoping for.I’m gonna send his ass
packing right now.[rock music]♪[dramatic music]– Okay, artists, you have
six hours to face off, tattooing against your teammate.One artist from each team
will be eliminated.And your time begins… now. – All right,
let’s do this, bro. – Let’s get the stencil on.– Face-off situations create
one of two things:complete success
or total failure. – Can I see that stencil? – I’ll just work through it,
add all the texture I need. – The battle royal begins. – What do you think, Gia? – My personal opinion
would be to angle it down, because it’s more flattering
on the body… – I’m kind of liking the way
that it’s placed. – You know,
don’t change your plans. – Both teams are doing animals
for black and gray realism.Texture is abundant–wet
pupils, feathers, fur, teeth.Today would be a great day for
somebody to really show off. – I suggested tilting the head,
’cause right now it’s, like, falling back on the thigh,
and he was like, “Mm, no.”– If you don’t take advice from
people that knowwhat they’re talking about,
your tattoo is gonna suffer. – Especially going up
against Nate.– I think Team Nuñez picked the
black and gray animal portraitsso I could not only beat Dave,
but obliterate him.The majority of what I do
is animal portrait work.Unless lightning strikes me,
Dave’s going home. – I ain’t gonna lie.I knew that Dave would take
offense to it,because he knows that Nate
can do this stuff. – That’s the name of this game. – I feel like both teams are
really working together and plotting against me.– Coming from a Jewish family,
I was very guiltyfor becoming a tattoo artist.You’re not supposed to be
tattooed ’cause you’re a Jew. I came here to prove to
my family that I deserve to be a tattoo artist. – Three hours, guys.
Three hours remaining.♪– What I’m shooting for today
is texture. Not worrying about nothing else.I’m capturing texture in thisby showing the smoothness
of the hornsand every wrinkle in
this rhino’s face.Double elimination.
This is [bleep] crazy.I feel like the team picked
a subject mattermost definitely hooked me up.Black and gray realism
is my wheelhouse.– Good job with
the line there, man. Boy, this [bleep]
is gonna get tough. – Yeah, I think
Sirvone’s got me man– – No.
I know it’s tough, bro. – Both of ’em tough, bro.– Yeah, but he’s got
all the texture.I’ve never done a portrait
of an animal.I do American traditional
tattooing.There’s no texture in that. I’m gonna go back in
and add darker, like, feather shadows in there. I think that’ll create more of
a highlight, too.I have two daughters relying
solely on my abilities.The pressure’s on.If I don’t nail this [bleep]
tattoo, I’m going home. – This is your final hour.One hour remaining.♪– This is pretty loose. Maybe just run a crisp line. – Like, black? – Yeah, it’ll help it. – That’s red as [bleep]. – It is pretty red. – Honestly, today is not gonna
be a good day for Team Nuñez.Whatever happens, we’re losing
a strong competitor,and Team Peck is just
losing dead weight.– I feel like so far–Nate,
this is, like, his first chanceto do something that he likes.– He and Nate can pull that
off–I was not expecting that.I think both of my guys beat
the [bleep] out of the gate. – Whole team pretty much
wants Dave out. I feel like when we started out
the teams, overall, you probably had a stronger
artistic front; on the team, I had a little bit stronger of
a positivity of attitude team,getting the first week or two
out of the way,the weaknesses are really
becoming more apparent.– Five, four,three, two, one.That is it.
Time’s up. Machine’s down. No more ink. – It’s already a lot less red.
– Yeah. – Dave’s tattoo
is looking like it hurts.His skin looks red, inflamed.Bye, Dave. – [sighs] – Yeah. That looks good, dude.
– Thanks, man. – The texture on it–it’s like
you could almost pet it. – I’m happy with this.
