The series features four of “Ink Master” Season 8’s top female competitors – Ryan Ashley, Kelly Doty, Nikki Simpson and Gia Rose – as they travel the country and go head to head with some of America’s most talented tattoo artists. Competitors will face a variety of tattoo-based challenges to see who has what it takes to beat the “Angels” and earn a spot on Season 10 of “Ink Master, which premieres in 2018. The new series will air in Fall 2017 following the end of “Ink Master” Season 9, which premieres June 6, along with new episodes of spinoff series “Ink Master: Redemption.”
Season 10 of “Ink Master” will go into production later this year and air on the rebranded Paramount Network in 2018.
