– Oh, Ruck.
– There he is.[tense music]– Here we go. – Hopefully his canvas
doesn’t walk out now and he’s got to do
another tattoo on himself. Oh, what if that’s
their challenge? [both laughing] – I’m here to handle this,
so let’s make it happen. – Somebody got a makeover.
– Yeah. – Hey, Ruck.
– Keith, Keith, Keith. – Hey. – You here to finally settle
the score, huh? – We weren’t able to compete,
really. I didn’t know you could
tattoo yourself as one of the options. That was your choice.
My choice was to leave. – No one told you
to go upstairs. I don’t wanna be blamed for it. – He’s not gonna go up there
and get the dude. – No.
– I wouldn’t. – I thought it was over
at that point, so I grieved in some beer. – I mean, I hear a lot
of excuses right now. – I did what I had
to do to stay. – I feel like we should have
both been sent home. – I have definitely
heard enough. – We need to get this
over with. – I can’t listen to this.
– Like– – Now.
– I did what I did. You did what you did.
This is where we are. – That’s right, yeah.
– Let’s do it fair. – Swing your bat, I’m
gonna definitely swing mine. I want any–
– Challenge accepted. – Let’s make it happen. I’m gonna get the win
whichever way you want to go. – I’m ready to swing bats,
too, man. – Yeah, yeah, yeah.
– Oh, yeah. – I feel like maybe you’re
a little butt hurt because– – Yeah, a little bit, man.
Yeah. – You know, he did make
some right choices. He was down here
tattooing himself. Everybody was like–like,
“Yeah, man, “you’ve got to tattoo yourself,
man. You [bleep] love tattooing.” I’m like, yo, dude,
got two hours left. I’m not
[bleep] Harry Houdini and shit. I can’t, like, go in a box
and god damn disappear out the other [bleep] side
of that mother[bleep]. You know what I mean? So, more or less, dude, like,
it turned down to him winning the day because
he decided to tattoo. – It was a finished tattoo so
this is where we are right now. – At the end of the day,
you know, you guys are both back here
to go head-to-head. – It’s all who tattoos
better today. There’s no excuses.
– Yeah. – That’s what I like to hear. – Well, we’re not gonna
make it easy for you. – Go ahead and give it to us. – We’re giving you guys
a 90-minute face-off tattoo and we pick the subject. – Whoever wins today’s tattoo
gets to choose either the style or the subject of tomorrow’s
six-hour grudge match tattoo. – Oh, shit.
– Okay. – Get it.
– Let’s get popping. – Drive.
That’s drive right there. I mean, Keith clearly has
an issue over this damn rose that he did on him.
– Yeah. – So do you want to do a rose?
– [bleep] it. Let’s even it out.
– Okay, we got a rose. – I’ll fire the machines up
right now. – What do you think,
style-wise? – I just–I just say neo,
whatever you think of it. That was the original
challenge, I guess, that this beef started on, with a color
neo-traditional rose. – In an hour and a half.
– God damn. – Let’s settle the score
right now. – Let’s go.
– Word, let’s do this. – Yeah, guys.
– Thank you. – I hope these guys are, uh,
bringing their A-game.♪ ♪narrator: In our
second grudge,season five’s Angel Bauta
was eliminatedeven though Julia Carlson
told her canvas to kick rocksand tattooed herself
to stay in the competition.– Curse anybody out lately?
– It depends. The day s still young. You gonna come test me?narrator: Now Angel
wants revenge.– Just ’cause I’m being
nice doesn’t mean I’m gonna be nice
come tattoo time, okay? – Up-up your game
and close down your mouth. – You get so grumpy so quick.♪ ♪– Both of these guys were on
my first season of “Ink Master,”
season five. Angel, he had a lot of issues
with his canvas, and he worked with him and gave
him the tattoo that he wanted. Julia is a firecracker,
just couldn’t work with her canvas, and she wasn’t willing
to budge. – All right, so,
this is what I’ve come up with, and if you don’t like it, I’m just gonna tattoo it
on myself. – Yeah, I’m not really
feeling it. – What if I create
a combination of the organics
with machinery? I’m gonna take that concept
and try to make that happen. Are you willing to compromise
a little bit? – No.
– I compromised a lot on this. – You didn’t compromise
for shit. – And I really want you
to do a great tattoo. – Good-bye.
Have a nice life. Go [bleep] yourself. I don’t wanna tattoo myself but
at this point I have no choice. – Part of the challenge
is working with your canvas. – Yes. – That’s why Angel’s so mad,
is because he went home and she stayed, and she was that horrible
to her canvas. – Yeah, Julia’s not afraid
to speak her mind, and neither is Angel.[hip-hop music]♪ ♪– What you working on? You should be, like,
practicing, no? – Well, I’m good at what I do. The way I was taken out,
I don’t think that was fair. It really hit me hard, man. It took a while just to, like,
regain that confidence, but now I’m gonna
get that chance. I played the game right.
She didn’t. I’m coming back to tell Julia,
for her to go [bleep] herself.All I’m gonna do is go in,
do what I do best,and just come out the winner.♪ ♪[dramatic music]– Can I go on Daddy’s bike?
– Of course you can.While I was in
the competition,everything was falling
apart at home. My husband was, at the time,
a recovering addict.Almost exactly a year
after I leftto film the season
of “Ink Master,” he died.– He looks just like him.
– I know. – I think it’s crazy
he can ride it right now. – Mm-hmm.They love riding bikes
because their dad rode bikes.He would be so proud.Angel was actually my friend,but I did whatever I had to do
to get one step further in the competition. Yeah, good job. Yeah, competition time.
I’m hungry. – Walking in heels.
– Man. – Oh, yeah,
she’s gonna bring it.– When is this guy
getting here?What is this,
amateur hour? – She’s already got
the fire going.– Uh-oh, here we go.– Hey, what’s up?
– Oh, there he is. – Curse anybody out lately? – It depends.
The day’s still young. You gonna come test me? – You couldn’t even work
together with your guy. Meanwhile, I worked with mine,
I did my thing, and I was the one
that got kicked off? – Today there will be justice. – You were my friend
and I respected you, and I didn’t want you
to go home. – Yeah, but you could have
spoke up for me. You could have helped me out, but instead you just stood
there all quiet, hoping that they
wouldn’t attack you?– Nice.
– Look at him.He’s getting heated.
Yeah, he’s getting heated. – He’s got them boxer brows,
dude. – I’m telling you. – Maybe you should’ve told your
canvas to go [bleep] himself and you would’ve stayed, ’cause you would’ve done
the challenge. This is a
$100,000 competition. – And that’s the way
you–you do it? You tell them to go
[bleep] themselves? – If it’s a competition?
Yeah. – That’s how you do it?
– [bleep] off. – Competition aside,
you have to make them happy. They have to live
with it forever. – I’m ready to see these two. both: Yeah, let’s get in there. You’ve waited half
a whole decade. That’s a long time
to hold on to a grudge. You added so much salt
to this beef, it’s turned to jerky. – Man, it’s loud in here.
– Whoo! – Boy, it’s getting hot
in here! – I’m kinda tired of hearing
this little squeaky voice. – Hanging onto a beef
for half a decade. You must be so exhausted. – Exhausted of hearing
your voice right now. – I’m exhausted of hearing that
you have a problem with me that you made up in your mind
because you were– – All right, all right.
– Enough, enough. – Come on, guys, this has been
long enough in the making. – I did not deserve
to go home that day. She did. If you can’t deal with
your client, why are you here? I worked with mine, so yeah,
it became so disappointing to be sent home that early, knowing that I
was doing it right. – You guys definitely have
some unsettled business. Let’s get into this.
– ASAP. – Let the tattoos
do the talking. – You down for that?
– Of course. – We’re gonna completely level
the playing field today. We’re gonna throw at you guys
a 90-minute face off tattoo, where the three of us get
to choose what you guys will be
tattooing today. – All right. – The winner of that face off
tattoo gets to determine the style or the subject for your six-hour
grudge match tattoo. – Oh!
That’s interesting. That’s where it
gets interesting. – That sounds perfect. – Whoever wins the grudge match
tattoo squashes everything. – Yeah, after all these years, it’s time to settle the score,
guys. What are we gonna throw
at them? – I don’t know. – This whole thing started over
a difficult canvas. – I mean–
– Yes. – If Julia felt like
her canvas was sort of this ball and chain
that was keeping her from getting to the end, why don’t we do a little
ball and chains? – Sounds like an idea.
– I’m all for it. – Any kind of chain,
any kind of ball. – Even that thing inside
the toilet when you flush it? – I mean, that is a ball
and a chain. – I agree. – You guys have 90 minutes
to do a ball and chain in any style.
– You ready to do this? – Are you?
– I was born ready. – Get to work.
Let’s go. Come on.
– Let’s get it done. – Feisty.
I’m telling you, feisty. – You nervous at all?
– Not really. – When I win are you
gonna apologize for being such a grump?
– They say silence is golden. – [giggles][tense music]– Keith, you ready?
– Oh, I’m ready. – King Ruck, you ready?
– Ready. – Let’s tattoo!
– Let’s go. – You like it right there?
– Yeah. – Okay, perfect. – Doing a neo-traditional
tattoo in 90 minutes, that’s a huge undertaking, because you still have
to have traditional foundation of solid color and bold lines. – Start with that.
Let’s go. – Now you gotta put
a spin on it and make it
artistically appealing. 90 minutes?
That’s a huge task. – Let’s get started.[rock music]♪ ♪Hey, Ruck, how’s it going
