I saw a couple casting notices posted online for season two of Ink Master back in February… I mean, I really hate covering reality TV on this blog. But I think it’s important, considering the sheer number of programs–and tattooers, be they amazing… or not–showing up in primetime TV spots.

This year there’s 16 contestants… and more notably, $100k as the grand prize.

For the record, I still think it’s super cheesy they have Dave Navarro as the host, but I get the type of “scene cred” Spike TV is shooting for with that. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m kinda shocked by some of the artists included in the constant list below…

  • Tray “Big Daddy” Benham
  • Clint Cummings 
  • Nick D’Angelo 
  • Jamie Davies
  • Katherine “Tatu Baby” Flores 
  • La Ron “Ron” Givens 
  • Steven “Kay Kutta” Givens
  • Thomas “TJ” Halvorsen
  • Cee Jay “Inky” Jones
  • Mark Matthews
  • Sarah Miller
  • Sebastian Murphy
  • Jesse Smith
  • Little Mike
  • Steven Tefft
  • Lalo Yunda

What about you guys–are you planning on watching? Do you even care? And more importantly, is this going to lead to more “boycott network” groups on Facebook?
