Last week Tuesday (September 2) marked the fifth season premier of reality TV show Ink Master, and there was a free party held at the Plaza LIVE! Orlando for fans, with several stars of the show in attendance.
This season’s theme is “Rivals,” where contestants are paired off based on personal beefs. For one of the pair of “Rivals” we get to see familiar faces, Joshua Hibbard and Jason Clay Dunn from season 3. I’m excited to see Joshua in action again. Despite having been a prick, he was still a great artist. I hope that Jason has amped up his skills, though. He’s a very sweet person, but he was weak as an artist.
This season has quite a few contestants from Florida, which is why this party was held, sponsored by H2Ocean. I’ve got to say right off the bat, this was NOT a well-organized event. Doors opened at seven with “festivities” scheduled to start at eight. There were three people there when the doors opened: me, my partner-in-crime, and one guy in a beanie. We killed time by watching people set up the bar and cupcakes. It was very hardcore.
