THE RETURN OF HIT REALITY COMPETITION SERIES “INK MASTER” TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, EXCLUSIVELY ON PARAMOUNT+

Artist-Entrepreneur Joel Madden Joins as New Host, with

Industry Icons and Tattoo Experts Ryan Ashley, Nikko Hurtado and Ami James as Judges

Former Host Dave Navarro Returns as “Master of Chaos”

Paramount+ announced that the return of the hit reality competition series INK MASTER will premiere exclusively on the service Wednesday, Sept. 7 and roll out internationally where the service is available. Additionally, it was also announced that Joel Madden, lead vocalist for the pop/punk band Good Charlotte and co-founder of music companies Veeps and MDDN, will join the series as host, with former INK MASTER winner Ryan Ashley, celebrity tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado and industry veteran Ami James serving as judges. 

In the new season of INK MASTER, hosted by artist, entrepreneur and culture enthusiast Madden, legendary fan-favourite artists return to compete in the ultimate tattoo competition. The artists will battle it out and face some of the biggest, most exciting and epic challenges seen in the history of the competition, all for the biggest grand prize yet: $250,000 and the title of “Ink Master.” 

From MTV Entertainment Studios and Truly Original, the 10-episode season also introduces three new judges: Ryan Ashley, the first female tattoo artist to win INK MASTER (season eight); Nikko Hurtado, one of the world’s best colour realism artists; and Ami James, a well-known Japanese tattoo specialist and entrepreneur with almost 30 years of experience. Former host Dave Navarro returns to the series as the “Master of Chaos,” introducing crazy twists and game-changing bombs to the competition.

The legends will need to prove they possess the high-level skills that set an Ink Master apart: composition, precision, colour theory, finesse, stamina and endurance. With stakes higher than they’ve ever been, a single misstep could send them home and, in the end, only one artist will walk away with the title. 

INK MASTER is executive produced by Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock and Andrea Richter. Benjamin Hurvitz, Jessica Zalkind and Tim Palazzola serve as executive producers and Donny Hugo Herran is executive in charge of production for MTV Entertainment Studios.
