It’s like I never left. – There he is.
– There’s Big Jaz. – Listen, he looks big
and tough, but he is so sweet. – This is where the party is.
All right. – Well, hopefully hugs
instead of bugs, right? – He gives the best hugs. – My name up in lights. Big Jaz. – There’s Tito.
– There he is. Damn, he looks pissed.
Look at him. – Lookee who’s here. Have you betrayed anybody here? – Hope you’re ready for this,
my friend. – You can believe in me.
– He looks tiny. – He’s like, uh, I gotta go
pay my parking meter. – You betrayed me, man. – It’s not betrayal.
I didn’t know you. It was business. – We was a team. – Well, you showed us
that you were afraid. – I worked as a teammate,
I work on the design. I tattoo, and y’all didn’t– – Sounds like a lot of I’s. – There is no I in team,
and I can’t spell, and I know that is true. – You should’ve stood up
for me. – What am I, your father?
– We was teammates, dude. – Come on, grow up. – You know
what’s the matter with me? – This is tattooing! There’s no crying in tattooing. – Let’s go figure out
what’s going on. – Let’s get in there
and figure this out, because I want to get
to the bottom of this. – I hope you ready. I’m gonna squash you
like a little bug. – [laughs]
Hold up, hold up, hold up. – Hey, you two.
– What’s going on? – A lot of sensitivity,
that’s what’s going on. – You betrayed me.
– Grow a pair of balls. – It’s like a soap opera. – Old lion versus young lion. – Oh, bring it on.
– Oh, it’s already brought. – I hear a lot of this,
so I want to see it. – Let’s do it. – We’re gonna level
the playing field right now. We’re gonna give you guys
a 90-minute face-off tattoo where we choose
what you guys get to do. – 90 minutes. – You’re kind of slow, man,
so I don’t know. – Okay.
– Shit. Whoever wins today’s tattoo
gets to choose either the style or the subject of tomorrow’s
six-hour grudge match tattoo. – Done, got this.
– Yep. – The winner of that six-hour
grudge match tattoo squashes everything, ends it. – I’m gonna show you.
– Yeah, whatever. Let’s just get to work.
– All right, guys. What should we give them
to tattoo? – He’s calling him a snake,
so I mean, some snakes? – Let’s do it.
– Or I mean… that’s one of my favorite
subject matters, I love it. – All right, snake it is.
– All right. For this 90-minute
face-off tattoo, we’re giving you guys snakes,
any style. – Let’s do it. – You guys should be drawing
right now, man. – Yeah, why are you
still standing here? Get going. – Good luck.
– I’m excited. – Me too.
– I love snakes. – I think it fits perfect,
the snake. – Oh, yeah? Yeah, a little baby snake,
like you, getting all personal,
all sensitive. Sensitive snakes? – Whatever, dude. – You being sensitive
is not my problem. – It’s gonna be your problem
when I beat you today. – Oh, if you think so.
– Oh, I’m gonna. [dramatic music] announcer:
In our second grudge, season seven’s
Ashley Velazquez felt St. Marq’s ego
was unsubstantiated. – Hey, yo, loudmouth. That station doesn’t look big
enough for that ego of yours. – You’re getting ready
to be baptized by fire today. announcer: Now she’s back to put the self-proclaimed
Tattoo God in his place. – We all know
who’s winning the grudge match. This was the school
of St. Marq right here. – I’m gonna take your ass down. – St. Marq and Ashley. Both of these guys
were on season seven with me. I can tell you right now, we’re about to see
some fireworks. Ashley, she is not
gonna let anybody talk any kind of shit to her, and St. Marq,
he has a little ego. – He’s a god, right?
Tattoo God? – He’s a tattoo god. He came into the house,
you know, banging on his chest, called a challenge,
and then he flopped and got sent to the bottom
on his own challenge. I mean, you kind of need to
humble yourself a little bit. – St. Marq, what’s the first
elimination tattoo? – Black-and-gray. We will be using
our shaders only. – St. Marq, why does
your tattoo look like a little boy with an umbrella
on top of his head? My tattoo’s better
than these two guys. That shit’s readable
from all the way over here. – If we’re judging based on
who’s equipped to move forward, I don’t think I should
be going home today. – I feel like these two artists
have a lot to prove to one another, in terms of ego,
in terms of work. – These two do not
like each other. It is like probably no other
grudge we’ll see. – Spitfires, man.
– Yes. – My grudge is with
the big-headed, loudmouth St. Marq. So you guys know we just won
best shop in New Haven. – Whoo! – I’m a person
who’s confident, not cocky, and that’s what drives me crazy
about him. He’s overly cocky. – We’re gonna go turn up,
party, I think. – Go get lit.
– Except there’s work tomorrow. You gotta bring your ass
to work, so you can’t get
a little bit too crazy. – Gotcha, boss. – If I can own my own shop
and make sure everything’s running smooth
on a day-to-day basis, taking care of old-ass St. Marq
isn’t gonna be a problem. ♪ ♪ – It’s looking great. – It’s coming along. – On season seven,
I think Ashley thought she saw a moment of weakness. I failed my own challenge, but I was just visiting
the bottom. She [bleep] lived there. Well, this is a great tattoo. It definitely has
the Tattoo God’s blessing. You’ve been blessed. Ashley is no competition
for the Tattoo God. Whoo! Feels like church
up in this mother[bleep]. – Oh, look who’s levitating in
now, the Tattoo God. – Tattoo God bless America. – What? – God bless America.
I told you. – What exactly makes him
a tattoo god? Where is that coming from? – His brain makes him
a tattoo god. – You can’t deem yourself
a god. – Hey, yo, loudmouth?
– [laughs] – I don’t know, man,
this station doesn’t look big enough
for that ego of yours. – Oh, shit! – So, what kind of grudge,
what kind of grudge do you got? What possibly could you have
with me? What possible? – You’re a little bit
too cocky. You came in,
you called the shots, you shot yourself in the foot. – And I came out
smelling like a rose. You took a shot, but–
– You were sweating, Marq. You were sweating, ’cause you know
you almost went home. – Guys, I don’t know
if we should make them tattoo or just let them
do this all day. – Let’s give them gloves. – I can tell
you’re a little scared, but I’d do something
about the shaking ’cause you– it’s not gonna help you,
shaking today. – Who’s shaking?
I came right up to you. I came right up to you.
I’m not shaking. – You’re getting ready
to be baptized by fire. – By what?
– It’s gonna be a bad day. – Let’s get this started. I mean, I heard enough.
Let’s do this. – Let’s take this to church. – I want to hear more.
– Come on. – I think it’s actually time
for you to retire. You already said you’ve been
tattooing longer than me, like you said,
you’ve been doing this longer than I’ve been in diapers. – All right, all right,
all right, all right. – Oh, man.
Here we go. Here we go. – Let’s zip ’em up. Time to show off
with your hands, not your mouths. – Whoo, it’s tense in here.
What’s going on? – Well, apparently,
we’ve got a grudge. You know, I didn’t start it,
but I’m gonna finish it. – You feel big and bad enough that you’re calling yourself
the Tattoo God, well, maybe somebody needs to come
and step up against you. – If you think you want
to knock me off the block, well, then you get your shot. – That’s what I’m here to do. – Girl, I love
that you’re a spitfire. – Yeah. – I love that you don’t want
anybody to walk all over you. – And you have to be,
to deal with this guy. I mean, if you were a softie, it’d be that much harder
to battle him. – I think you better hope
that there’s– they have some sort of,
like, mercy rule, ’cause this is gonna get called
on grounds of humiliation. – All right, we’ll see. – So here’s how
we’re gonna settle the score. We’re going to give you
a 90-minute face-off tattoo where we get to pick what you
guys are gonna be tattooing. – Awesome. – The winner of that
90-minute face-off tattoo is gonna get a huge advantage. You get to pick the style
or subject in tomorrow’s six-hour
grudge match tattoo. – Are you ready? – The winner of that grudge
match ends it all. – I am pumped. – So, what should
we have them do? – They’re both
black-and-gray artists. – Yeah, I’d say
you guys both specialize in black and gray. – We gotta switch that up,
obviously. – So…
– Get crazy. – Let’s flip it on them. – Let’s just do color tattoos,
whatever they want. – Ooh, I like that.
– Whatever they want. – Let’s do it.
– I am so ready. So ready to roll. – 90 minutes ain’t shit,
so get your asses moving. – Yeah, get moving.
– Good luck, guys. – Float on out of here. – Have you seen any
of St. Marq’s color? – Yeah.
– Do you do a lot of color? – I do.
– Oh, you do? – I don’t really keep up
with your work. What is it that you do? – You’re gonna see. Don’t act like
you don’t remember. It wasn’t that long ago.
I know you’re a little old. – I can smell fear.
– Okay, let’s see. What’s gonna take
your ass down? – All right, Big Jaz, Tito, you guys got 90 minutes
to do a snake tattoo. Don’t get rattled,
but your time starts now. – Let’s do it, man. – All right, the moment
of truth has arrived. – Cool. – Do you have any last words? – Do a good job. [laughs]
– Yes. I’m doing a black-and-gray
traditional cobra head, because I’m coming
for Tito’s head. I want this tattoo
to look mean, just mean. Mean! – I thought that would be
really tiny for 90 minutes. – This is pretty tiny, though. – For you, maybe.
– Yeah. I come from
a street shop background. I do a lot
of 90-minute tattoos. I do 30-minute tattoos.
I’m fast. I’m easy like Sunday morning. Tito’s gonna struggle
with this, because A, he’s slow. ♪ ♪ B, he’s slow. ♪ ♪ C, very slow. [bass drops] – Ready?
– I’m ready, you ready? – Let’s do it. I’m doing a full-body snake
with the head cut off. I hope when Big Jaz
seen my tattoo, he gets the message. [blade resounds] – How we looking? – We’re looking good. Yeah, I’m planning on spending
more time on the line work than actually shading. The line work
is the main thing to me. – Cool. – Making a snake
with all the scales, that’s gonna take a long time, so I’m doing the spots
on the snake to create the visual effect
that that’s the scales. I got done
with the head already, working on the body now. The technique that I use
is something that I know that I can get it done. – All right, guys,
60 minutes left to slither your way
through this tattoo. – ♪ Less than an hour ♪ – Big old traditional piece,
huh? – Cobra. – Is this your go-to? – Oh, yeah, of course. When in doubt,
traditional it out. – Especially in 90 minutes,
right? – Exactly. – Oh, so you went
full body, huh? – That’s right. I’m going black-and-gray
with this. – Time-wise, how you think
you’re gonna do? – I got this.
Yeah, I got it. – Tito’s trying to do
a full-body snake with the head chopped off. In 90 minutes, that’s insane. – I think they like it.
– Yeah. – I don’t know if he’s even
gonna have time to finish outlining this thing
in 90 minutes. Hopefully, this full-body
snake doesn’t come back to bite Tito in the ass.
