TLC PREMIERES SECOND SEASON OF “AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS” ON THURSDAY, MARCH 27 AT 10/9c
Season two features more ink disasters and compelling stories behind every tattoo transformation
New York, NY – America’s favorite tattoo artists are back in action to put their needles to work on some of the most misinterpreted tattoos in the country in AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS beginning Thursday, March 27 at 10/9c on TLC. With expert artists Megan Massacre, Jeremy Swan, Tim Pangburn and Lisa Del Toro at the helm, no tattoo goes uncorrected. Season two dives deeper into the backstories of the badly-branded victims to uncover the embarrassment and pain behind every tattoo. From the on-a-whim trips to the tattoo shop to emotional mistakes of the past, every story is one-of-a-kind and every tattoo just as unique.
Highlighting the personal stories behind each life-changing mistake, AMERICA’S WORST TATTOOS tells the individuals’ personal tales, whether it is a hilarious account of a newbie artist or a heart-wrenching anecdote of matching sibling tattoos gone wrong. The artists then collaborate with the customers to create a design transformation, all leading up to the reveal of the cover-up masterpiece.
In the back-to-back premiere episodes, Megan transforms a Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura portrait, while Tim attempts a leg cover-up with a romantic dinner landscape. Jeremy’s client wants to change a tattoo that represents her wilder past, and the new ink creation leaves her in tears of joy. Then, in the following episode, it is all about animals as Megan gets to work on a pink elephant, and Jeremy converts a frog into an artistic hour glass. Finally, Tim’s customer receives a life-changing tattoo makeover in the form of a gorgeous perfume bottle. Later in the season, Megan even gets in the hot seat for her own ink blunder – a seven-year old tattoo done by an apprentice that desperately needs a cover-up.
Online at TLC.com, find Megan’s picks for the worst tattoo and flip through photo galleries to witness the tattoo transformations. Also, take a look back at season one clips of favorite moments. Viewers can also upload their tattoo disasters online, and fans can join the Twitter conversation using #WorstTattoos.
