Produced by Original Media, Ink Master is an American reality-based competition TV series that was launched on Paramount Network on January 17, 2012. The series features tattoo artists who face several challenges evaluating their tattooing skills and talents. The competitors are then assessed based on their skills by distinguished tattoo artists judges by eliminating one or more participants each episode. The last remaining participant is awarded hefty cash of $100,000 and declared as the winner of Ink Master and gets featured in Inked Magazine.
The fourteenth season of Ink Master is a much-anticipated reality series that is set to release much sooner than you think. The competition series is packed with entertainment and the plotline and concept of the series are very much enjoyed by the viewers. It has also gained attention and received a positive response from the audience and critics alike.
We also know that the Covid 19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the entertainment industry and almost all of the TV shows were badly affected and much to the dismay of the fans, Ink Master season 14 got delayed and in addition to that, one of the judges were involved in the controversy which further caused delays in releasing the fourteenth series. However, it was recently reported that filming for the new season is underway and as we’ve mentioned, it’s arriving very soon and here’s what we know about it.
Is Ink Master Season 14 renewed?
When the thirteenth season’s last episodes shooting was still ongoing back in March 2020, the lockdown got declared, and shooting couldn’t resume and had to be postponed. Soon after that, rumors began swirling that Ink Master season 14 will not happen.
Fortunately, Paramount Network decided to call off the decision and attempt to bring back the popular competition series. Filming for season 13 wasn’t much of a big deal since it was launched barely 12 months after season 12. As of now, season 14 of Ink Master is officially confirmed but so far we haven’t heard a word from the show runners and it only makes us question when the fourteenth season will finally release.
Ink Master Season 14 release date: When is it?
The only thing speculated about season 14 of Ink Master is that it’s coming very soon but when? Currently, there is no official release date confirmed. Paramount is yet to issue an official release which fans need to wait for a while for that.
The upcoming season comprises a variety of tattoo artists from different backgrounds and unique experiences. The series will begin by putting up with strict measures and precautions as the virus is still a threat to mankind. If the shooting goes smoothly without any postponement, the new season will most probably arrive sometime in 2022.
Ink Master Season 14: Who are the Judges?
It’s not known or confirmed if the same set of judges that appeared in the previous seasons will return on the panel in the upcoming season of Ink Master. However, it is evident that Oliver Peck had exited from the show and will not return as his contract with Paramount is suspended. While the other two judges namely Chris Nunez and Dave Navarro might return and serve as judges.
In previous seasons of Ink Masters, numerous rotating guest judges were invited. Although it is not clear, one of the guest judges will likely be replacing Oliver Peck and serve as a continual judge on the show or the other theory is, Paramount might hire new judges while letting go of the old judges and beginning a new start.
Ink Master Season 14 participants
The number of tattoo artists participating in season 14 of Ink Master is not revealed. Throughout the seasons, it always had different numbers of participants each season and it’s difficult to predict how many tattoo artists will take part in the next season but new faces and tattoo artists from across the countries likely will enter the competition series and unfortunately, these names are not disclosed yet.
The highest number of participants so far was in the ninth season that had 36 participants followed by the thirteenth season that had a total of 20 participants.
Each contestant will face various challenges and the last man standing will be declared as the title of Ink Master.
The trailer of Ink Master season 14 is not available. It will be shared soon by the show makers.
