NY Ink Season 3 and the premiere of America’s Worst Tattoos is coming to TLC April 4th!
TLC THURSDAYS GET INKED WITH THE SERIES PREMIERE OF ‘AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS’ & RETURN OF ‘NY INK’
premiere Thursday, April 4 at 9 and 10 PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) – Tattoo greats meet tattoo mistakes on Thursday, April 4 with the series premiere of TLC’s AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS and season three premiere of NY INK.
Kicking off the night at 9 PM ET/PT, AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS will take a look at some of the most awful, hilarious, grammatically-incorrect and just plain weird tattoos the country has ever seen. Luckily, with the help of famous artists like Tim Pangburn, Jeremy Swan and NY INK’s Megan Massacre, AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS will highlight the process of turning life’s biggest regret into a tattoo masterpiece. The show will also delve into the unfortunate tattoo’s backstory, the creative brainstorm of how to cover it up and, last but not least, the big reveal.
Continuing at 10 PM ET/PT, TLC returns to SoHo’s Wooster Street Social Club (WSSC) to follow the life and work of iconic tattoo king Ami James and his team. Season two of NY INK left off with the booming success of Ami’s shop in SoHo—and the emergence of internal tensions within the WSSC crew. The saga continues in season three with stories and struggles as expressive as the tattoos themselves. Joining Ami, Tommy Montoya and Megan Massacre in this new season are a virtual melting pot of international tattoo artists: Brazilian Rodrigo “Hot Rod” Canteras, Argentine Lee Rodriguez, Aussie Mike Diamond, Japanese Yoji Harada and born-and-raised New Yorker Jes Leppard.
The result is a living masterpiece that pulses with as much energy as the skin they ink—nothing you’d expect from the established personalities and everything you would from the City That Never Sleeps. Will the WSSC originals accept the newcomers—or will rivalries form?
AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS is produced for TLC by Magilla Entertainment. NY INK is produced by Original Media.
Super excited to announce my 2nd Cover and feature in Inked Magazine now on news stands!
I really enjoyed shooting the photos for this feature, it was definitely no typical, stuffy photo shoot! Probably one of my most colorful shoots to date, I think this shoot really encompassed my personality traits. Instead of your typical posing and sultry facial expressions, I got to exercise my fun side. I laughed, rocked out to music, fought off wards of ornery balloons and they even let me eat candy!
Here’s a peak at the cover, but your going to have to actually go open a copy yourself to see all the goodies inside! Also, be sure to read my feature to find a little insider information about the brand new 3rd season of NY Ink AND the premiere of my new show America’s Worst Tattoos BOTH airing back to back this April 4th starting at 9pmET/PT!

Season one of NY Ink was the introduction of a whole new chapter in Ink history. With New York being the mecca of all things modern and evolving, while also filled with rich history and colorful diversity, it’s only appropriate to bring the series to NYC! Here we uncovered what it’s truly like to try and make it in the big city! Paired with dealing with the every day stresses of life, making friends, finding love, creating master pieces, and burning bridges. It was quite the experience, through it all I learned so much as an artist and grew as a person. I was very happy to be a part of it and am glad to share it with you all.
Here are some moments captured from behind the scenes of filming the first season of NY INK. Enjoy.
