“Tattoo Rescue” premieres on Spike TV

Spike TV really wants to position itself as the channel you turn to for tattoo related programming. After the success of Ink Masters it looks like Spike is moving forward with Tattoo Nightmares and a show that premiered last night called Tattoo Rescue.

Following the same format as the network’s show Bar Rescue (which in return is a complete rip of Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares); Tattoo Rescue centers on “Joey Tattoo” and his team of experts as they travel the country transforming failing tattoo studios into profitable businesses.

We watched the premiere last night and have to say that we were rather impressed. Joey Tattoo obviously has to deal with oblivious owners, tattooers that don’t take pride in their job, and shops with health code violations. We appreciate the attention paid to the health code standards. It’s not just a show where a guy comes in and makes the shop pretty – he stands firm on making sure the artists are taking care of their clients safety.

The show might also be an eye opener for clients and hopefully educate them on what to look for when they go into a tattoo shop for work. Education is key and we are hoping that future episodes benefits both shop employees and clients to take pride in their work.

    Just want to say thanks for watching and I am glad it can be seen that I sincerely believe the public needs to be educated on what to look for when choosing an artist and a shop. Getting tattooed or pierced is not a joke and some people take the business too lightly. Joey Tattoo

      Hey just watching, great show, interesting and informative. I’ve been getting tattooed for nearly 15 years, here in the US and in my native England. When does the season proper actually start, not seeing anything on my Comcast/Spike listings. Cheers.
