Trying to catch up a bit here with London Ink. Today we have Episode 4 (of 6) to focus in on. The London crew starts things off as Louis takes on a piece for Sophie in the first segment which will be a part of her burlesque act. The piece is done on both of her calves and it really turns out amazing. As annoying and hard to watch as Louis can be, he is an impressive artist.
The shop wild card, Dan Gold, tattoos his friend and former apprentice Tom for a stained glass piece. They get along great and have alot of fun together, which of course pisses Louis off to no end. I swear Louis feels like he is babysitting this crew of artists most of the time. It comes off pretty harshly and I am actually surprised at how much Dan takes from him.

The next part of the episode shows Phil consulting with David, a American businessman who wants his first tattoo to be a horrible looking anchor. I mean horrid. Phil fights him on it quite a bit, as he should have, and draws a far superior piece up for him, which David rejects. Dan also gets some stained glass inspiration and finally begins on Toms back piece.
