L.A. Ink Episode 2.4 – New Beginnings

Another episode of L.A. Ink aired this week, this one focusing in on Pixie and her tattoo removal process. You see, she has akat-ludwig.jpg hideous piece of ink on her arm, something that looks like a goblin girl and her goblin baby, not really sure what it is exactly. At any rate, I was sorta under impressed with the ink on this episode as a whole. Some video of Pixie and her Dr. Tattoff experience are below.

  • Kat’s skater friend Freedom gets a peregrine falcon on his arm to help him symbolize his newfound sobriety. Kat cannot help but talk over him most of the time about her own sobriety, which she claims is “just for now, to focus on my work, ya know?”
  • Kim does a very detailed piece for a woman that wants to highlight her girlie side. The back piece featured a diamond ring, a ballerina dancer, lipstick, and other girlie trinkets. It also is very pink, which Kim loves. As a dude, I have a hard time appreciating this, but I’m certain it is totally what she wanted.
  • Hannah does a suicide prevention logo for a girl that lost her brother to suicide, it is hard to criticize her motives of course, but that life preserver is sorta boring and almost ugly. Of course Hannah makes it about as nice looking as is possible. This one was obviously featured because of the emotional backstory.

L.A. Ink Episode 2.2 Recap – Pixie Moonlights

pixie-kim.jpg

The second episode of the second season of L.A. Ink aired this week, with a couple cliffhangers from the first episode. Kat and Pixie are on the outs due to her taking a week off while Kat was on tour with our boy Orbi. So, what does any good business owner do? Call the life coach right! And of course, as predicted, Hannah returns, man we really though she might not come back! But, first off, on to the ink.

First up is Brandon, a narcissistic hairdresser who wants his logo of his hair product line on his neck. And he does not want it to look “like pansy”. But watch out, here comes his mom! In the end, Mom relents, and actually leaves unannounced, and the B man gets his logo. Great idea dumbass! “B” the product bro.

Shelley is a make-up artist and gives Hannah her first piece in the new season. And what a perfect set up for the spike with some colorful flowers! Hannah’s specialty. Two magnolias on the shoulder blade end up great, not surprisingly. Great idea and piece.

L.A. Ink Season 2 Underway, Kat Is Not Pregnant

lainkseason2.jpg

Ok Kat, so you are not pregnant, I really did not believe it was true anyway, think of the major drama that would have ensued if it were true! At any rate, Season 2 premiered earlier this week, and the main drama, after Kat said her pregnant rumors were untrue (very funny!), was whether or not Hannah would return.

Corey and Kim really shine on this episode, especially Kim, who does an excellent arm piece that is black and grey and full of intricate flowers, wow. I really had my doubts about this one when the dude wanted black and grey, usually flower pieces scream for bright colors, but wow.

Drama en sous throughout the episode, shockingly involving Pixie, who Kat fires in the next episode, at least that is what TLC would like you to think. So stick around for another season of L.A. Ink, and let us all be thankful Kat is not pregnant, the mood swings are too much already….

For a recap that is incredibly similar to the ones we did last season, head on over to Buzzfocus, where they provide tattoo image screencaps. Fair warning though BF, TLC will be all over that like white on rice, and that is why you will not see us going the screencap route here any longer. But hey, until they get the wrist slap, enjoy the pics.

And while we are at it, better go here to watch the episode, I am betting it won’t stay up long either.
