Christian Buckingham’s 35 Hour Master Canvas | Ink Master: Grudge Match (Season 11)


(heavy metal music) – [Christian] I think
everybody knows me as this black and
gray realism guy. But I come from a
comic book background. That’s what I always was into. And so I really kinda wanted
to dispel that myth anyway. I think black and gray
guys get a bum rap that everybody
thinks we can’t draw. And I want to show that
that’s not the case. I’ve been drawin’ my whole life. So I’m gonna not
just crush Cleen, but crush a lot of myths too. What’s up, man?
– Hey. Jacob, I’ll be
your master canvas. – Good to meet ya. Ready for all this stuff?
– Hell yeah. Been watching Ink
Master a long time. And I’m super pumped
that I got you ’cause I like all your work. I’ve looked up on
your portfolio. It’s all badass, man. – Nice, well, we got a lot
on the line with this one. For sure, tryin’ to
settle up with Cleen. So I’ve got some cool ideas
how we’re gonna do it. I came up with
somethin’ pretty badass. Super hot, full leg, big-colored, new-school
vampire chick, man. Real bright colors, really
rich, stuff like that. What do you think?
– It’s rad. – Yeah?
– Yeah. – Dig it?
– Hell yeah. – I think we’re not just
gonna go bright, dude, we’re gonna go big. This is gonna take
your whole leg up. Wait ’til you see this. We’re gonna start
with just the girl. And I added some
rats I wanna do. – I’m pumped.
(Christian laughing) That is massive.
– Yeah. If this was on an arm, man, that’s like a full
sleeve pin-up, so. You’ll be able to see
this from 10 miles away. This is $100,000 design, man. And you’re about to
get $100,000 tattoo. So hope you’re ready. (heavy metal music) Well, that’s a big, fuckin’
pin-up girl, isn’t it? (heavy metal music) All right, you ready?
– Let’s do it. (heavy metal music)
(tattoo gun buzzing) – I was always a comic
book junkie my whole life. I’ve always loved comic books. And I actually really wanted
to be a comic book artist before I got into tattooing. So I just figured, fuck it,
I’m gonna go back to my roots and do something I love. (heavy metal music) Bam! Dude, we got a
shit-ton done today. I’m real happy. I think we’re
actually farther along than I was hoping, so.
– Awesome, man. – Yeah.
– That’s sick. – Think I should have
gone bigger though. – Maybe.
(Christian laughing) (heavy metal music) – Well, let’s see what you got
goin’ on here. I’m excited. Oh! Looks like it healed
beautiful though, man. I’m super stoked about that. We’ve got a ton to do today. So I think we’re
gonna try and get all of this completely finished. Try and get some of the
cloud work in the background. And at least get the
tombstones outlined. So I have a pretty
ambitious plan for the day. I have a pretty good
strategy for just keeping this whole thing controlled. I don’t want an
unfinished tattoo, or somethin’ that
doesn’t looked planned. So these first two sessions
are basically gonna show me how far I can go
through the whole thing. So I want to have
the final session set up for just
basically detailing, finishing things up,
and going through and making sure everything
is super perfect. But regardless, everything
will be complete. So that’s important. ‘Cause unfinished
tattoos can’t win. No way. (heavy metal music)
(tattoo gun buzzing) All right, bud.
– Here we go. – Here we go again. (heavy metal music) I think we got her
done for today. That’s about all the beatin’
I’m willing to give you. – Hell yeah, man.
– Yeah. Big, bright colors. That’s a lot of saturation. You gotta be pretty raw today. – Yeah.
– Yeah. (chuckles) Next session, she’ll
be really healed up. We’ll go through,
completely finish her, and just get the
maximum amount done. I’ve got plans for every stage. So no matter what,
we’re gonna be finished. (heavy metal music) Cleen has a lot more
experience than me, but I’ve still got 15
years under my belt. And that’s no joke. I think for anybody who
thinks I’m a one-trick pony and I can only do
black and gray, they’re gonna shut their mouth
as soon as they see my piece. (heavy metal music) All right, mister. Come lay down. (dramatic music)
(tattoo gun buzzing) I’d say this is the
most fun I’ve had with a finale piece, I think. Next session, we can really
do a lot of detailing. This guy, the skull,
I’ve gone through and put texture in the
vines, and do drop shadows, and little stuff like that. And I can put some
more little branches comin’ off the tree, whatever. But as long as
everything’s just done, then we’ve got seven
hours to make sure everything’s great. Well, I mean, if you
stand right here, it looks really big. Maybe we can get the
judges to do that. I’m pretty stoked, man. I think we got a butt-load
of work done today. More than I expected. So that’s good. We got the skull
done, we got the rats, we got the bats, we got a little bit
of the touch-up done. Next session will be
absolutely nothin’ but just addin’ little details and makin’ sure this
thing’s bulletproof. I don’t want any questions
when we’re on stage. – [Jacob] Yeah, man. (intense music) – All right, man, let’s see
what we got goin’ on here. I wanna see how it healed
and what we got left today. So what happened down here, man? – [Jacob] Boots that
I gotta wear for work. They just, they
rubbed on it too much. – Military wouldn’t let
you wear tennis shoes, huh? – No. (chuckles)
– Yeah, all right. Well, fair enough. – [Jacob] Right when
I got home from work, I took my boot off and
I was like, “Damn it.” – I feel like we’re gonna be
able to probably fix that. So it’s not as bad as you
probably thought it was. – Yeah, I don’t know, man. I’m still pretty
worried about it. (dramatic music)
(tattoo gun buzzing) – All right, here’s
the moment of truth. Never tattooed
through a scab before. I bet that feels great.
(Jacob breathes heavily) That’s what happens when you
don’t take care of my tattoo. (tattoo gun buzzing)
You get in trouble. This one’s definitely
not just for me. It’s representin’ Team
Christian all around. I’ve come way too far
to lose at this point. This grudge match has
gone on way too long. It’s time to end this crap. I think if Cleen has any
shot at winnin’ this, he’s gonna have to
do the best piece in the history of Ink Master. (dramatic music) I think we got $100,000
tattoo right here. – [Jacob] Hell yeah. – Okay, let’s go take a look. (heavy metal music) – I love it. The detail in her clothes,
the skull, the rats, how colorful it is. And we got a whole leg done. – Cleen thought he
was gonna sabotage me. But I don’t think the
dude knows what he’s doin’ when it comes to
strategy because this is exactly what I wanted to
do in the first place. Legs are my favorite tattoo. I was gonna do color because
I’m tired of hearin’ how I’m just the black and gray guy. I’ve been doin’ color
for 15 years, so. I think it’s time to
shut a lot of people up. (intense music) (logo whooshes)

    SO glad Cleen won. Never liked Christian's attitude. Cleen complimented his canvas SO many times for sitting through. I didn't hear that once from this guy, nothing even close. And giving him a tattoo where the main parts of it are not going to be seen unless the guy is naked or wearing Speedos is just plain stupid.

Clearly this isn't the canvasses style at at all . He put something on this dude he will cover up , by wearing pants. Christian is better then this design u made urself look like a amateur . I just don't get the concept of it at all. U basically handed clean 100,000 dollars.
