[via press release from Spike TV]

WHO WILL BE CROWNED AMERICA'S "MASTER SHOP" ON THE NEW SEASON OF "INK MASTER" PREMIERING TUESDAY, JUNE 6 AT 10 PM ET/PT

Season 9 Introduces Nine Pairs Of Contestants Who Battle For The Largest Grand Prize in Series History And, For The First Time, The Title Of "Master Shop"

New York, NY, April 20, 2017 - Spike TV's hit original reality-competition series "Ink Master" returns for a ninth season on Tuesday, June 6 at 10pm ET/PT, with the highest stakes yet and twice as much prize money on the line. This season, shops from all around the country are sending two of their strongest artists to compete for a $200,000 grand prize, an editorial feature in Inked and, for the first time in "Ink Master" history, the title of "Master Shop." The series is produced by Truly Original.

This season comes with a new twist, as artists will be competing in pairs and representing their hometown shops. Throughout the competition, the artists are not only tested on their technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on "human canvases." Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing, and as always, while the artists' masterpieces will last a lifetime... so will their mistakes.

After every challenge, the contestants face a tough panel comprised of musician, filmmaker and artist Dave Navarro, as well as world-renowned tattoo artists Chris Nu´┐Żez ("Miami Ink") and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).
