On Tuesday night’s installment of “Ink Master” the tattoo artists were first given the Flash Challenge that meant creating a tattoo that highlights each artist’s technical precision meaning that all lines and all shading are perfectly done giving the tattoo as real of a look as possible and their human canvases asked for tattoos that represented a specific superpower.

Scott who won last week’s challenge had first choice on which canvas and superpower he would create, he chose a crow with the power of telepathy and Matti who created a hammer to show power were the 2 artists on top. However, Scott’s due to the crow looking more like an eagle was unable to take the win and Matti therefore got the chance to assign canvases in the elimination tattoo.

This part of the competition consisted of tattooing a character from the X-Men comics in color. Matti chose Wolverine and also gave the other Wolverine to Scott; he wanted to once and for all prove that he is the better artist. Despite the judges praising some of the finished products as being well done, to viewers there were some obvious discrepancies, overall the portraits did not turn out to be as great as they should have.

Hugh Jackman was invited to judge the tattoos and although impressed with all of them at the end decided the Scott had done the best job in recreating Wolverine, the final product was excellent and Hugh Jackman’s was appearance was clear and concise with just the right amount of color, expression was captured, and shading up to par with technical precision.

“Ink Master” runs on Tuesday at 10 p.m. EDT on Spike.
