Tattoo artists from around the country battle it out in permanent ink in Spike TV's hit reality/competition.

For the first time, the series will welcome back three "Ink Master" winners to coach and mentor artists in the quest for $100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the coveted title of "Ink Master." In addition, the former "Masters," Season Two's Steve Tefft, Season Seven's Anthony Michaels and Season Nine's DJ Tambe, will be competing against each other to win $100,000 of their own.

The artists will be put through a series of tattoo challenges that are not only designed to test their technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, as they must create and execute an original tattoo on a 'Human Canvas.' Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing, and while the masterpieces these artists create 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 Nuñez (Handcrafted Miami) and Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).
