Cast list is not available.

A competition reality series where tattoo artists take part in artistic challenges.

Hosted by recording artist Kimberly Caldwell, Best Ink is a reality series where ten of America's most talented tattoo artists compete for a grand prize of $100,000 and a cover story in Tattoo Magazine.

In each episode these ink artists utilize needles and ink, along with their passion, as they take place in challenges that test their creative skills. After each challenge the contestants are critiqued by head judge and world-renowned tattoo artist Joe Capobianco, international pinup model and tattoo shop owner Sabina Kelley and a guest judge from a rotating roster.

One contestant is sent home each week until one tattoo artist can claim their work as the Best Ink.

I really miss Best Ink! The positive energy and comradery of the contestants along with the helpfulness of Joe was an outstanding example of the true competitive spirit. Should be emphasized and expanded upon. Not the train wreck of negative crap that constantly comes with Ink Master. Plus, much, much better artists on Best Ink, hands down!! Much more fair and expressive judging as well. Its truly a crying shame that this was the featured tattoo contest that got canceled! Better in every way, no question! I'm over 70% covered with basically one tattoo that has won top awards at shows. I do know good art from Ink Master!! Please bring back The true winner of the skin art reality shows, please!! Positive energy, comradery, and people helping one another does sell, look at how well Face Off did!! Not everyone likes watching back biting hostilities. You had the best thing on TV, why did you ditch it??!! Shame on you.

Best Ink is an excellent show. I hope that it can come back.
A lot of the the contestants are top notch, the challenges are interesting. Kudos to Joe for being able to drop weight and get healthier, it shows his dedication to himself and the show.
The only thing I would change is to have another judge to be Joe's counterpart, preferably Hannah.
