The co-founder of Big Brain Tattoos in the Old Market made the final of Spike TV’s hit show “Ink Master”. Chris Blinson defeated sixteen other artists and is one of three finalists in the finale that airs Tuesday night. Big Brain co-founder and friend, Smitty says he found out last week that Blinson made the final cut and the winner will be announced live.
Smitty says Blinson got a phone call last week from Spike TV saying he didn’t make the final cut but on Friday there was a knock at his door. Show representatives told him they wanted to keep the finalists secret and he was told to pack a bag and flew off with them to New York City for the finale.
Blinson’s final assignment was to create a large back tattoo for the competition. The winner will be announced pending the judge’s decision Tuesday.
