What do you think of MTV’s new show ‘Just Tattoo of Us’?

Earlier this year I blogged about some of the UK’s upcoming TV shows and what I thought of the format of MTV’s controversial new contribution.

Just Tattoo of Us witnesses individuals getting particular tattoos that have been chosen by a friend or family member. The twist, however, is that they won’t get to actually see their new tattoo until it’s already been permanently put on their body.

The tattoo artists taking part in the programme have now been announced and the line-up includes the incredibly talented Cally-Jo.

Based in New York but originally from the UK, the artist works at well-known US studio Grit N Glory. Cally has also just been part of the major UK tattoo art exhibition now open in Cornwall.

Joining her are five other UK tattooists whom mostly seem to specialise in black and grey realism (except for London-based Atom who has a cool graffiti-inspired new-school style).

Here they are…

According to recent reports, a second series is already on the cards before the first has even aired.

Before I sweep in with my fun police hat on, I really want to hear thoughts from those of you whom undoubtedly watch more telly than myself.

What does the Inkluded community think of this new show and will you be watching? Have you been tattooed by any of the featured artists? Is it wrong that many will be walking away from the show with permanent artworks that they hate, but have to live with forever? Bring in the Tattoo Fixers, right?

I want to hear your thoughts! Comment below or over on Facebook.

  1. I dnt like charlotte or bear but will probably find myself watching this to see exactly what its like, the reactions to the tatoos, and the artists work though i’m sure the artists will do fantastic jobs just not sure about people getting tatoos that they havent seen can imagine some people going for the laugh factor and picking out tattoos that the other wont like or that no1 would want on their body and this is just my opinion maybe people are only going on this show because they know tattoo fixers is there and should be able to get a cover up at somepoint . It would be interrsting to see what tatoo fixers think cos yes it may bring them more business but encouraging people to get tatoos they havent seen and probably wont like cant be a good thing.

  3. Hilarious programme to watch, it’s embarrassing, I think the presenters nor the tattooists could sink any lower by doing awful tattoos on people , bad rep for the tattooists , plus there’s a rumour saying that tattooist “Charl” is a man ?
