‘Compass Rose’ Elimination Tattoo Highlight | Turf War (Season 13)


– Okay. Artists, you have six hours
to tattoo a compass rose, and your time starts now. – It’s away!
– All right, let’s do this. – Let’s get the stencil on. – I think
the placement’s perfect. – There are varying forms
of compass roses. Some are super simple, some
are really, really elaborate. – That’s money. – This is the day
to think simple and remember we’re testing
the fundamentals. – Ready to win this thing? – Absolutely, are you?
– Yeah. [suspenseful music] ♪ ♪ Just as I suspected, Jason kicked all of us
right in the gut. I knew somebody was gonna be
like, “I’ll give Angel
the [bleep] clipper ship.” Joke’s on you, Jason. Give me a skull and I’m gonna hit it out of the park
every single time. ♪ ♪ – I’m sure
everybody else knows that I’m struggling
with the environment and having to prove myself. I wanna showcase my abilities and that I deserve to be here and that I do
have a shot at this. The rest of the teams
are hating on us right now ’cause they know
we got a good team. The hardest part about
this tattoo is the pearls and all that lace
in the background. Straight lines,
perfect circles. It’s a lot. ♪ ♪ – Four hours to go. Four hours to go, guys. ♪ ♪ – The goal is to be the best, but it’s a journey,
not a destination. My canvas saw what I drew up,
and he wanted it on his thigh so he can have
a bigger, better tattoo. This is turning out sick. But I’m the only one
in the West that predominantly does color. And of course,
they’re gonna throw me a black and gray piece so that I can’t even
use my strongest suit. – Bob, lemme see this shit. That’s a [bleep] cool tattoo. – Well, you know, we’re doing
the best pieces out here. – Everybody is cruising
on our side. ♪ ♪ I really thrive
under pressure. When people are antagonizing
me, that’s when my art
flourish. Don’t sleep on me. That punch
that you don’t see coming, it’s the one
that’ll knock you out. – Yeah? – Oh, yeah. [dramatic music] – Oh, [bleep], yeah, dude. You’re killin’ it, man. – Yup.
It’s pretty clean. – [chuckles] – I’m taking a lot of risks
with this tattoo. This style is meant
to take up the whole body part. And when you’re working
with circles it could be something
that’s a little tricky. You know,
I’ma surprise people here. – Three hours to go, guys. Three hours to go. – Now? – I think it looks great. – Okay, cool.
[chuckles] I have the biggest tattoo
in the room. Time is not
what I have right now. – Oh, my gosh.
I’m so nervous. [laughs] – All I need is you to work
with me and I’ll work with you. ♪ ♪ – Did I move? – It’s all right.
It’s nothing I can’t fix. – It’s tough staying still. ♪ ♪ – Today’s fundamental day,
and line work is one of the biggest
fundamentals in tattooing, so that’s what
we’re focusing on. I chose the mandala
because there’s lines every-[bleep]-where. This is for my family,
you know? Hopefully they would
never have to live like I did
when I was a kid. When I was 17 years old,
you know, we were homeless, and I’ve built my way up, and I know that sometimes
I can be too passionate. But it’s only because I continue to set my mind
and my goals so high that I will never stop. [tattoo machine buzzing] – Goin’ good so far. – Yeah?
– Yeah. I honestly never thought that
I would be a tattoo artist. I kinda think that, like, when
you get tattooed by someone you kinda, like, take on
a little bit of their energy. I spent about ten years
as a oil painter. You can make great work and
maybe nobody gives a [bleep]. I love tattooing so much, and I get to work
with people every single day and create things
that change their lives, and that’s just
really fulfilling for me. – This is your final hour. One hour left. ♪ ♪ – I’m about to start my red. – Yeah, get in there.
I’m worried about you. – [exhales deeply]
I’m worried too. – I don’t think he has time
to be walking around right now. You’ve gotta [bleep] finish. Otherwise you’re out
automatically, pretty much. – There’s a line
that came a little off. I can’t fix that line
unless I bold the whole thing. Whenever you get the chance. – I probably won’t
get the chance ’cause I’m running
super behind. Holy shit! I don’t know what Emac did, but we’re gonna need
a miracle here. ♪ ♪ – Oh, it’s starting
to hurt real bad. Oh–[squeals] The outline is taking
a long time. I gotta get it done. ♪ ♪ – Five, four, three, two, one, time is up, machines down. No more ink. – Icy clean. – It was rough for a minute,
I’ll tell ya. – Ta-da! – I can’t believe that’s
on my body, man. That is so good. – Mac attack,
down to the [bleep] wire. – The wire, dude.
Literal seconds. – The literal last minute. – Was it his decision
to make it that big? Or what–what happened there? – I don’t know. – Man, you just did
a traditional tattoo. That’s pretty [bleep] easy. – I feel really bad that I wasn’t there to
help him more, you know? – You had to do
what you had to do. – I know.
