Spike TV is looking to expand into the reality genre of television and recently received the greenlight from Viacom for a six episode series called “Tattoo Nightmares”.
As announced from a Spike TV press release: “Tattoo Nightmares” – Real people with really bad tattoos seek the help of some of the best cover-up artists in the business to fix them. The tattoos range from hilarious to downright disturbing, with reenactments that will show how these people wound up with their awful, ugly and embarrassing ink. The contestants will go under the needle of top tattoo artists to see if they can work a miracle and cover someone else’s mistake. “Tattoo Nightmares” is created by Sally Ann Salsano (“Jersey Shore”) and 495 Productions.”
Jersey Shore production meets Tattooing? Honestly, the last thing we need is for a television show to exploit horrible tattoos that were done by scratchers. More material that outsiders can use to form misleading opinions about tattooing. We just hope for the sake on the contestants the coverup artists are stellar.
Do you think this is a good or bad thing??
