A&E NETWORK PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL REAL LIFE SERIES "BAD INK"

SERIES FOLLOWS RENOWNED LAS VEGAS TATTOO ARTIST AND HIS BEST FRIEND AS THEY SCOUR THE CITY IN ORDER TO FIND AND FIX PEOPLE'S MOST PERMANENT MISTAKES

BACK-TO-BACK NEW EPISODES PREMIERE SUNDAY AUGUST 11 AT 10 and 10:30PM ET/PT

New York, NY - July 10, 2013 - A&E Network premieres the new original real life series "Bad Ink," following a pair of Las Vegas tattoo aficionados on their quest to find and fix the worst of Vegas' worst mistakes. The city of sin often goes hand in hand with people making bad decisions, and regrettable tattoos are permanent reminders of those choices. However, hope has now arrived in the form of two comical best friends who are taking on one terrible tattoo at a time! Back-to back episodes of "Bad Ink" premiere Sunday, August 11 at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT.

"Bad Ink" centers on Dirk Vermin, one of the nation's most well-respected tattoo artists, and his best friend Ruckus as they go on the hunt for sin city's worst ink jobs. From rebellious school kids to housewives to grandmothers, in Vegas, no one is immune from waking up and saying "What did I just do?" These people are this colorful duo's primary targets, as Dirk and Ruckus ambush convention goers, tourists and locals alike, inspecting their awful art up close and personally. For a lucky few, Dirk will be able to work his magic and transform the cringe-worthy eyesores into noteworthy masterpieces. Behind every tattoo in Vegas is often an amusing tale... but these guys will not let anyone they find leave the city a victim of bad ink!

In the season premiere episode at 10PM, Dirk and Ruckus get a desperate call from a Jacqui, a client whose birthday celebration turned into a tattoo nightmare she can't forget. Later, they meet Alex, a man whose failed attempt at professing his love has left him with a tattoo scar that threatens his new relationship.
