‘Ink Master’ is a tattoo competition reality show that airs on the Paramount Network. Presented by Dave Navarro, the show features tattoo artists from various backgrounds who compete against each other in a variety of challenges that put their tattooing skills and other related artistic skills to the test.
A pretty old show, Season 1 of ‘Ink Master’ premiered on January 17, 2012, when the Paramount Network television channel was called Spike. Since then, the show has seen a whopping 11 seasons air and, in the process, it has built up a dedicated fan base. In fact, it is so popular that it has spawned two spin-off shows, titled ‘Ink Master: Redemption’ and ‘Ink Master: Angels’. Further, special episodes centred around upcoming events and holidays like Halloween are also frequently aired. As far as reception is concerned, the show enjoys a special place among tattoo artists and tattoo enthusiasts alike, and it has a good rating of 7.4/10 on IMDb.
Unsurprisingly, the show routinely performs well in the 18-49 years demographic category, and fans have been wanting to know about Season 13 ever since the Season 12 finale aired. Here’s everything we know about the next season.
Ink Master Cast: Who is in it?
Being a reality show, the contestants in each season vary, and as such there is no fixed “cast” per se. That being said, the presenter and the judges of the show have remained unchanged over 12 seasons, and we can expect them to return in Season 13.
Dave Navarro, the guitarist of the rock band Jane’s Addiction, presents the reality show, while former ‘Miami Ink’ cast member Chris Nuñez and accomplished tattoo artist Oliver Peck take up the roles of the two primary judges. Apart from the two judges, the show occasionally calls in guest judges, but of course, who these guests are differ almost every time.

Being a tattoo competition show, ‘Ink Master’ follows a particular format when it comes to its competition.
