Flash Challenge Preview: Hey Man, That’s Salt – Ink Master, Season 7


– Welcome. There are still eight of you, but this competition
is constantly changing. Two artists
have been eliminated, and two veteran artists
have returned. And it’s far from over, ’cause only one of you
will earn $100,000, a feature in “Inked” magazine, and the title of Ink Master. This week,
you are being tested on creativity.– Creativity brings
a tattoo to life.
It’s gonna set apart the people who can actually draw
and put together a tattoofrom the tracers.If you’re not creative, your tattoo’s always
gonna look boring. – For today’s flash challenge, you must use creativity to make an extraordinary
work of art using a common,
everyday item: salt.[dramatic music]– Salt… [whispering]
What? I don’t know what
he’s talking about. – Salt?
What are you, nuts?What, are we hanging out
at a diner?
Gonna play with some salt
on the table? – The more limited
your resources are, the more creativity it takes to make something incredible. First, you must
stencil your designonto a 4-foot by 8-foot
adhesive board.
Then carefully apply
various grains of salt
to create your masterpiece. Today, you will have help, but you’ll also
have to compromise, because once again, you must work
in teams of two.– Great, another team.Last time I had to share
the skull pick,
I ended up at the bottom.– Cleen, you won the last
elimination tattoo. That means you get
to assign the teams. As you know, who you work with
can make all the difference, so chose carefully.– These guys
were gunning for me
as soon as I walked
in the house.
I got a big target on my back.There’s no way I’m gonna
give somebody an advantage
by putting two guys that
know what they’re doing
on a team,
except for myself. I got to win every challenge
from here on out.– Artists, one by one, please read the number
on the bottom of your skull to determine your teams. – One. – Four. – Four.– I picked Picassobecause I’ve seen
his artistic ability,and this Edward Scissorhands-
looking mother[bleep]
is, like, super creative. – Two. – Two. – St. Marq is a prick. Cleen, you son of a bitch. – Three. – Three. I’m stoked to be
working with Megan.She’s part of my alliance.She’s super creative.Cleen made a big mistake. – Number one.– One [bleep] artist,
one good one–
she can bring him down. – Those are the teams. The winners
of the flash challenge will have the power
to assign all human canvases in the elimination tattoo
as a team. You have four hours to show creativity using only salt, and your time begins now. – Let’s do this. – I’m gonna run
through ideas with you. – We got to figure out
subject matter.– Today’s challenge
is out of the box.
It’s something that I can
almost promise that none of these artists
have ever done before.And that’s the whole point that
we’re testing them on it…
– If we did, like,
a badass skull, the eyes would be super white.– Just to see what
they’ll come up with
in a completely
unfamiliar environment. – Our shadows themselves
are really cool, and if we do the silhouette
of, like, a sexy woman– – Megan… – And you can make, like,
a really cool, like– – Megan, that’s
[bleep] awesome.– If somebody’s not
a good artist overall,
this is gonna be a tough day. – Megan Jean is making
a silhouette of herself. – So you tell me
what you think. – I pictured, um,
the skyline.– Everybody else
is gonna do the skyline.
It’s what’s right
in front of us.That’s not creative.How do you think that would
work for creativity?I won the last flash challenge.I need to get Anthony
to agree with me. Something bigger to work with
will be better. The first thing that
came to my head was a dope, like, skull with a huge headdress. – Okay, I just need
to come up with a drawing. – If you’ve got some ideas, I really like your design stuff. – Yeah.
– I mean, I trust you. The veterans need
to take back the skull pick.The new artists
have had it way too easy
for way too long.It ends today. – I was thinking in my head I would do, like,
this gnarled-out, like, spray can with a face
and a long nose with wings on it,
flying over New York City. Maybe put a planet
up in the topside. – That’s [bleep] ridiculous. We’re doing a koi fish. – I hope they don’t eat us up
for creativity. – I think we’re
showing creativity on how to use our medium. There’s definitely
some friction between me and Alex. – Dude, I don’t care. – He needs to be on my team.– Two hours to go, everybody. Two hours.– [whimpering]
I am so salty right now, I want to die. – There, that looks rad. – That does look good. – That’s dope. All you really need
is some lines. – That’s it.
Scrape out some lines. – We need a couple of
finger waves just like those. – I think you’re
underestimating the time it’s going to take
to salt this thing. – It won’t matter.
– You sure? – Yeah. – St. Marq is starting
to piss me off. Hey, man, it’s
a team challenge, right? – [bleep] Mark show all day. – Is it?
– Not a surprise. – [bleep], man. I hate koi fish. It’s a played out design, dude. – One hour remaining, final hour.[suspenseful music]– We’re doing a skullwith a candle on the top,with a moth
being attracted to it.
I think it’s pretty creative. Don’t get too crazy. You don’t want it
white on that wing.The only problem is,once you put the salt on,
you can’t get it off. – Let’s give it
a good cleaning. – This guy’s just throwing salt
like it’s a set of French fries. Remember you want contrast. You want nothing lighter
than the flame behind it. There’s salt everywhere. This is the worst challenge
of my “Ink Master” career.– Five, four… – Need more time! – Three, two, one. That is it. Time is up. – Think it looks great. – I’m really proud of it. I think it’s
a great piece of art. – I still wish we did something
a little different. – Alex has checked out.I think he could be tossing
this challenge in the trash
just to put Marq
in a really bad position.[dramatic music]
