Are you obsessed with “Ink Master”? Season 3 of the Spike tattoo reality show wrapped up on Tuesday, Oct. 8, but the network is wasting no time in casting for season 4. You don’t have to be a phenomenal tattoo artist to get a chance to appear on the show – but you do have to have a love for ink.
As fans of the series know, every week the remaining contestants must compete in a challenge that involves a human canvas. Casting calls for tattoo artists are already complete, but if you are over 21-years-old you can have a chance to be inked by some of the best in the business.
So, how do you apply for a chance to be a human canvas in season 4 of “Ink Master”? It’s relatively simple.
Spike TV is holding casting calls for human canvases on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. The casting call is located at Ripley-Grier Studios in New York City [Click HERE for the exact address] and is your final chance to interview with the casting producers in person.
Any potential human canvases must fill out an application with questions ranging from personal information to what style of tattoos you are into. Applicants must also upload a recent photo, as well as a photo of any current tattoos they have.
Human canvases do not receive any monetary compensation or get reimbursed for travel or accommodations that incur while filming “Ink Master.” Participants will be required to complete releases and other documents provided by the producers of the show.
In order to be eligible you must be available for filming between October 2013 and December 2013 and located in the New York Tri-state area. You must be 21-years-old at the time of filming to participate.
Contestant names for season 4 have yet to be released, but the season 3 “Ink Master” finale gave two fan favorites a chance to return for the new season. Chris May and Kyle Dunbar went head-to-head to impress judges Dave Navarro, Oliver Peck and Chris Nunez with a six-hour tattoo.
Kyle Dunbar produced a design of a blonde-haired woman with a flower in her hair, birds behind her and a skull in front. Chris May, on the other hand, produced a design of a tiger with a dagger. While both tattoos were praised by the judges, Dunbar ended up winning a second chance on season 4 by securing 79 percent of the fan votes online.
Dunbar has the ability to return with a leg up on the other competitors in the upcoming season of “Ink Master.” He follows in the footsteps of TatuBaby, who competed in season 2 and was given a second chance in season 3. Tatu Baby ended up making it into the top three tattoo artists in the season finale of Spike’s reality series, but lost to Joey “Hollywood” Hamilton.
