On tonight's episode of "Tattoo Nightmares," Jasmine, Big Gus and Tommy, the tattoo doctors had their work cut out for them in this episode titled, “You’ve Got Male.” With the huge popularity of tattoos, the influx of shops around the country has left many people with some pretty bad tattoos; some have nearly ruined peoples’ lives, but the re-enacted stories behind them are often more bizarre than the tattoos.

As the episode begins, Jasmine and Gus arrive and Tommy is not there yet, something that rarely happens, but he has the coffee, so all is well. Tommy’s client told him that he was having a lot of trouble with his penis; however, Tommy is a tattooer, not a urologist. His name is Corbin and arrives and tells Tommy that he got a tattoo to make new friends, but nobody spoke to him after it. It was a rural mailbox with a penis coming out of it, with words around it stating, “You’ve Got Male.“ This is his only tattoo, and he has had it for over three years. He loves space, and would like a rocket ship or space shuttle. Tommy did a drawing of a space shuttle and by the looks of it, he may be able to cover it up nicely. When he told Tommy how he tried to be cool by getting the tattoo, it was a stupid decision he made as a teenager, and lost his friends and girlfriend because of it. When he saw the space shuttle that now adorned his thigh, he was dancing out of the shop.

Jasmine’s client was Stephanie, who told her she had a pretty offensive tattoo, but Jasmine has seen some rough stuff, so she will be the judge. Oh well, it is a tramp stamp with the two words that nobody wants to hear, never mind see across a beautiful woman’s backside. When she lost the best person in her life, she did not want to live any longer and felt that she was saying F-You to the world. Her tattoo is scarred, making it more difficult to cover. She would like a Victorian frame with a picture of the ocean, and Jasmine will do her best to make her customer happy. When she saw the lovely picture frame with a clam inside and a pretty pearl sitting inside. Now she does not have to be afraid that her daughter can read it.

A guy named David came to see Big Gus with a gnarly tattoo of a woman across his belly. He has a daughter dealing with brain cancer and wants a dad chimp with a baby chimp to represent the love he has for her. Gus told him that he had a friend with a child who was diagnosed with brain cancer and promises to give him the best tattoo he ever did in his life. When David saw the chimps and to top it off, Gus even incorporated the brain cancer ribbon in the tattoo, it was amazing. He was in tears when he saw it, and the whole shop was pulling for his daughter’s recovery.

Now thanks to these three fantastic artists, there are three happier people who are no longer victims of their "Tattoo Nightmares."
