On last night's episode of "Tattoo Nightmares," Jasmine, Big Gus and Tommy, the tattoo doctors had their work cut out for them in this episode titled, “Dr. Death.” With recent popularity of tattoos, the influx of shops around the country has left many people walking around with the worst tattoos; some have nearly ruined peoples’ lives, but the stories behind them are even often more bizarre than the tattoos.
A guy named Nick came in to see Jasmine with a tattoo that gives him bad news and drama. He has the name Samantha on his collarbone, and it is a dark one. He wants a shotgun over it to prove his manhood. Jasmine has her work cut out for her on this one, but she can work miracles, as can her two cohorts. As Jasmine tries to find a tattoo that will cover the name, a shotgun will not work because of the position of the tattoo on his collarbone. She comes up with another gun that could work, if he agrees, and he loves the gun.
A guy named Jason comes to see Big Gus. He has been to six tattoo shops, and nobody wants to help him, which maybe was a good thing. Gus saw the tattoo he abhors, and it is the grim reaper with a bloody scythe. Jason is a paramedic who is here to save people, and he has a death tattoo on his chest. He would like to replace it with Zeus. When he was assisting people at an accident scene, he had to take his shirt off to stop a man from bleeding, but then the man saw El Diablo on his chest and freaked out. Gus did an awesome job on Zeus and covered up Dr. Death perfectly.
Steve comes to see Tommy. He is a military man with tattoo of a lion, but it has the body of a woman with boobs. He is a flight medic and would like a Black Hawk helicopter. When he first joined the service, his buddies took him for a tattoo, but the guy was stoned who did it and left him with a scar he has been carrying for 25 years. Now thanks to Tommy, the helicopter is awesome as he created his magic.
Now thanks to these three amazing artists, there are three happier people are no longer victims of their "Tattoo Nightmares."
