Wire Sculpture Art: Flash Challenge | Ink Master: Battle of the Sexes (Season 12)

– Welcome.
– Morning. – As the battlefield thins, the competition gets
more intense, and you must fight even harder
to win the war. Only one of you
will earn $100,000, a feature in “Inked” magazine, and the title of Ink Master. Week after week,
some of the fiercest male and female veteran artists
will return to coach each team. – Who’s it gonna be this week? – I just hope they’re good at
whatever the hell we’re doing. – Yeah. – And this week,
both your coaches have been through
this competition not once but twice. – What? – Bubba Irwin. – Nice.
– And Sarah Miller. – Yeah.
– What? – Hey there.
Hey, girls. – All right, yeah. – Welcome back, guys. – Good to see you guys.
– Good to be back. – Coaches, your team’s survival
is on your shoulders. Save all your artists
from elimination, and you will earn a spot in the Clash of the Coaches
face-off for $25,000. – That’s awesome.Since I started
this competition,
I feel like
I’ve only progressed.And so a chance to tattoo
against these titans
that this competition created
in the finale would be a dream come true. – To defeat the enemy, you must know the enemy, so Bubba will coach
the women’s team, and Sarah will coach
the men’s team. Go ahead and join your teams. – I don’t know if the guys
are gonna be able to put down their ego
and actually listen to me.I’m bringing knowledge
and experience to the table.
It’s up to them if they can
let their egos go and use it. – This week,
we’re testing legibility. – Ooh. With legibility,
it’s really important that a work of art is readable and that there’s no questions
on what it is. – For this flash challenge, you must create a masterpiece out of nothing but wire. – How the [bleep]
we gonna do that? – In this room is over 10 miles of various colors and gauges
of wire. You must think outside the box
to shape this malleable
yet unruly material into an incredible work of art. – Get your hands ready, ladies. – Whatever you make,
it needs to be clear as to what image
you’re trying to convey. It needs to be legible. It’s not an abstract challenge. – You will have six hours, and your time starts… now![dramatic music]– I got some really good
ideas, you guys. – So do we.
– What are they? – We were thinking
the solar system.– Today,
we’re testing legibility,
so we’re looking
for these artists
to do something big and bold
that’s easily readable with a lot of creativity. – What I kind of want to do
is, like, do, like, a real quick powwow. I want to make sure
that you guys win. – Basically, they’re gonna
be sculpting with wire. – A freestanding, like,
retro spaceman and/or alien, like, [bleep] rocket ships
and shooting stars. – Okay, that’s a cool idea. – I hope these artists
are wired properly, because they’re gonna be pushed
to their limits. – I was thinking
three-dimensional guitar coming from the top
but, like, skewed.I’ve never worked
with wire before.
I didn’t even think
that was an art medium. – Would you want to build it,
like, freestanding? – Attach it to the top
and kind of go angled. – Good idea.
– Yeah.– Thank God
I’m coaching the women.
Coaching guys would be
a [bleep] disaster.
Guys just have
these giant [bleep] egos. – I think you could get
something really well if you had, like,
a floating sun, and then if there was, like,
an astronaut, like, floating off to the side. – That’s a lot.– They are throwing out
so many different ideas.
I’m trying to just
pull them together to focus on the best one. Well, hang on.
We only have six hours. – Right. – We just do
a simple spaceship. It’d be easy
to make that shit look solid. – I don’t think
a rocket’s enough. I really think
we should do an astronaut. – This is like herding cats. – The little color pieces, if you combine them together,
grab the drill, and you spin the drill, it’ll make thick color,
like, twisted pieces. – Oh, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, that’s sick.– The last time
I hated wire this much
was when I had braces. – Who do you think you are? – I might have taken a class
on this.Last week, the guys won
the skull pick
and took out one of our women.We cannot let the guys win
again today. We have to take this. – You guys want to make it
in two separate pieces? Like, want to make the body one and then the neck
a separate one? – Yeah. Three pieces.
It’s gonna be three. – Our team sucks
working together. – Do you guys want to make
each string a different color? – Everyone is trying
to be the leader. – It’d be cool
if the guitar was a color, like the bottom part. – Can’t, though,
because we’re gonna use the chicken wire to wrap it. – It’s not gonna be legible. We should definitely
do something to make it
so it’s not see-through. – It’s gonna have two layers
of chicken wire too, ’cause we’re gonna wrap
the back as well, so that will definitely keep it
from being see-through. – That’s true, that’s true. – Alexis knows everything
about everything,guitars and wire.Am I wrong
for, like, not thinking that it should be see-through? – I do like
the see-through idea.♪ ♪– I’m annoyed.
My fingers hurt.
I just don’t like it. – Four hours left. Four hours to go.♪ ♪– Just make sure everything
is, like, as tight to me as possible, and then do another leg and create a person,
piece by piece. I understand the risk
of creating an anatomically correct
astronaut.If even a single hair
is out of place,
it’s gonna be
glaringly obvious,
but when we nail this thing,
it’s gonna be totally worth it. I’m literally being used
for my body right now. – You volunteered. – Don’t let him fool you.
He loves this. – The Camstronaut. – We already have one Cam.
Now we’re gonna have two. – Ooh.
– Oh, wow. – This one doesn’t speak. – They’re building
an astronaut. It’s really clean. – Yo, they were wrapping
Cam in wire there. – I wish they would wrap
Cam’s mouth shut. – Shots fired.
That was some shade. [laughter] – Fulfilling a lot of fantasies
right now. – Holy Mother of God,
this thing is huge. – One hour left.
One hour. – Hey, guys,
we’re down to the wire. [chuckles]♪ ♪– Uh, where’s the planet going?
Like this? – What if we put it over here? – ‘Cause it’s…
right on the edge. – Yeah, it’s not
a complete circle. – You would never cut out
3% of a circle, you know what I mean? – I wouldn’t worry
about adding, like, too much more
to the background, honestly. This is what I was afraid of. – That looks pretty good. – This is the person whose ego
is going to sink this. – Put that big rock
in the middle of the–
the two big craggy things. – Don’t worry about
the aesthetics of my rocks. – He’s a [bleep]
rock expert, bro. – He is a rock expert. – Five. Four. Three. Two. One. That’s it. Time is up. – Shouldn’t it be his last name
if he’s an astronaut? – Whatever, shut up. [laughter] – Even when you lose,
that’s still really cool. – Did you see robot me? – Is that you?
– I was the model– I was the model
for the Camstronaut. – Of course you were. Why wouldn’t you have been? – What’s up with
this power cord? It’s not going anywhere. – If you don’t have anything
positive to say, you should just try
not talking. That would do us all wonders. – I’ve tried so hard. If you’re gonna do a guitar, it’s supposed to be legible. – Please, for the love
of all things holy, shut the [bleep] up. – I love you, Ash.[dramatic music]– All right, it is now time
to critique your work. Women’s team,
let’s start with you. I really appreciate
that you took the care to make this
a functioning guitar, with the right amount
of strings, the right amount
of tuning pegs, the pickups. – Did you notice
the guitar strings go from large to small? – I did notice that. – You guys did a fantastic job. – [bleep], yes, coach.
– Hell, yeah, guys. – How many colors of wire
did we have? – Yeah, exactly. – Ten? They used what, two? – All right, men’s team,
you’re up. – The rocket ship’s cool, I like the fire blast
coming out of the tail, and as far as
the astronaut goes, I think it’s really cool. It’s tough to try to create
a proportionally correct human figure
out of all this wire. Came out really strong. – Thank you. – I actually didn’t know
that that was Earth. – Stop it. – Your guitar is not
accurately proportional. – Your space is not accurate. – Our astronaut is. We literally covered this guy. – What about the Saturn? Your Saturn is a square.

    Don't like all the snitching to the judges about what's wrong with each others art, just focus on your own work

  • Bob Belcher

    Upload the episode to the app already. It should already be there

  • V q

    Jeez! I can't see the guys' finished piece at all! …

    Can someone please move Cam's ego out the way?

  • pig boner

    Lmao the guy's ego is called out multiple times but the girls show that they are more egotistical when it's pointed out that they're all trying to be the leader

  • Nick Milligan

    The guys didn't knock out the girl last episode, she quit

  • Hudson Herships

    Both good pieces, but I think in terms of legibility, the Women have it. A guitar with a recognizable shape & details is good. With the men’s, I can tell there’s an astronaut, but everything else isn’t as recognizable. Like the judges said during the week 1 elimination tattoo, “the more you give us, the more you give us to judge”

  • Giantelephantgenitalsinsideagiraffe

    2:44 he's so happy with himself after that pun 😀

  • Nicole Whalen

    I don’t like Sarah

  • killyourboss 624

    Creepy Jason is all around an amazing artist.

  • Elizabeth

    The astronauts is so lit 🔥

    It never fails. The battle of the sexes (anything), is never good lol.

  • PortuguesePirate99

    The way Navarro says "five" really grinds my gears😂

  • Law7ence

    2:43 You know Chris Nunez did not want to say this, some fucking corporate hack threw him that line.

  • Kat C

    Love the girls team but they are so petty and controlling. God forbid something is said to them, they’ll come out guns blazing to attack one comment. It’s a competition, everyone talks to get a rise out of others. They shouldn’t feed into it 🤦🏻‍♀️

  • Sebastian Carnegie

    Why is this so sexist towards the men🤣

  • Neel Verma

    I mean I get that it's reality tv, but this is just extremely sexist. From both teams. It's a shame that grown people have egos that big

  • Thomas Goliath

    Like the long blond hair girl she gives me Emma stone vibes 2:21

  • TheSkyHazCloudz

    Really not a fan of Ash's attitude in this challenge.

  • erin

    1:24 omg i hate her. i hate the way she talks, the unnecessary face/mouth movements she makes when she talks and she just looks so angry.

  • Donavon Haskins

    I hate to say it but I am really disappointed in this season so far. Last year things started to get rocky when more focus was placed on drama than the artwork. Now it seems that so much of the competition is egos that the artwork is becoming irrelevant.

  • Rileigh Cummings

    I really hope tatu baby comes back. She is one of my favorites. (I probably spelled her name wrong)

  • nobody knows

    somebody who has spike please tell me who won the challenge

  • - -

  • Eddie Quintana

    Get y'all's hands ready…. Haaaaa…. No?…. Ok

  • Anni K

    3:35 I feel you girl😂

  • Google Name

    I don’t like the coaches. It’s now a battle between them. Right back to clean rock Juan vs tattoo face whatever his name was. Then they make it men vs women, but put a guy coach with the women and a woman coach with the men. As Mr. cocky bastard said he came to show his skills not to be a student. It’s like the two coaches needed something to do or to make some money so they said yeah sure we can work you in somehow.

    (I know Juan is wrong.)

    And the bipolar chick if she doesn’t want it to define her or other people not to bring it up – don’t bring it up. Don’t get pissed if someone else says mentions it to someone else when you already told people. It sounds more like an excuse or a crutch than anything. Which in the end it was.

    She left.

  • Justin Verh

    Calling it now Jake Ross wins!

  • Megan Ramirez

    wire can't be an art medium art can be anything because it's everywhere you just have to be able to see it.😊

  • 成人剣士

    I’ve seen clips of the new season right now ash Mann is so whiny and just complains my god

  • Grant

    Where can we watch it

  • LaObeja Negra

    Which team won!?? 😑

  • mixstamike

    Sara is freaking insane and crazy yo. Like did you see that look on her face when she was talking about the men's ego? Like she's obviously got some screws loose and isn't normal foreal.

  • Anonymous [26490]

    This season they are clashing so much. They had to separate them by sex, didn’t they..

  • Typo Haven

    7:06 I love how he can't count ..they used blue, gold, silver and pink that would make it four colors not two if I'm counting correctly LOL..plus the amount of colors used wasn't a requirement so not sure what his point was 🤔

    That red haired girl is such an arsehole. She feels like the girl who thinks that everyone hates her because she's a girl, when actually everyone hates her because she's a cunt.

  • Helel Alexander

    Christ what happened between Ash and Cam

  • Grace

    The flash challenges in this season are beyond annoying with all of the arguing between the teams. I get that they're trying to prove there's are better, but if it is… you shouldn't have to try to prove it 😏
