It is interesting that one of my favorite shows on television is Miami Ink. Why? Because I am probably one of the last persons in the world who would ever get a tattoo.
Despite this I still love the show. Even though I probably would never get a tattoo I can appreciate art. Essentially that is what Miami Ink is about, great artists producing a new art work each week.
I especially like it when they go away from the traditional tattoo staples of skulls (tough stickers) and the like and move into flowers, wild life and portraits.
NUNEZ co-owner of the business and is the party guy. He gives you the feeling he enjoys life and people.
GARVER is probably the best tattoo artist in the shop having years of experience that wear on his body but when it comes to doing large pieces of substance he appears to be your man - just don't ask him to tattoo a fairy.
KAT is the only female tattoo artist in the shop and is the person to see if you want a photo quality portrait of a close person you wish to remember.
DARREN is the shortest in the group but that means he can get closer to his work.
Finally there is YOJI the apprentice still nervously learning the trade.
The show is mainly about the tattoo's but it is also about the artists and the people who come and visit. Most have a reason why they want a particular tattoo. This is what keeps the show fresh - new people every show. On top of that the show goes into the life of the artists - the fishing trips, the parties, the fun and the struggles, this makes you feel as a friend not just a viewer.
Miami Ink is not just the name of a great tattoo shop Miami Ink is the name of a classic reality T.V. show.
