Frank Ready, an artist from Ink Master Season 11, has returned as a “juggernaut” together with three others for Season 13. Why did the tattooer come again for one more season?
‘Ink Master’ Season 13: Turf Wars
For the 13th season, the theme is Turf Wars, and the artists will compete in groups based mostly on their hometown areas. Five contestants from the East (Jimmy Snaz, Jessa Bigelow, Ok Lenore Siner, Emac, and Andrew Hicks), South (Jason Elliott, MoneyMike Thornton, Nychelle Elise, Patrick Flynn, and Jordi Pla), West (Angel Rose, Bob Jones, Raul Ugarte, Hiram Casas, and Arlene Salinas), and Midwest (Frank Ready, Jake Parsons, Jordan Allred, Kelly Severtson, and Jerell Larkins) all face-off for a $100,000 grand prize, an editorial function in Inked Magazine, and the Ink Master title.
After three episodes, the East misplaced two gamers, Andrew Hicks, who stop, and Emac, and the South is down two artists, Nychelle Elise and Patrick Flynn. Additionally, in a brand new twist this season, the judges can save one artist from elimination.

Jason positioned fourth, and Frank completed in eighth of their season, with Jimmy Snaz and Angel Rose inserting in 10th and 11th, respectively.
Frank Ready revealed why he returned for ‘Ink Master’ Season 13
In an Instagram post, Frank shared why he selected to return again and compete in one other season of Ink Master. He started by explaining his “first time out” was “new, exciting, and absolutely terrifying.”
He wrote, “I was in a house with juggernauts of my industry, and I had to live with and compete against them.” Frank admitted he “felt out of his element often” as there’s “no way to prepare for it.”
Even although generally, “it was nearly impossible to tell which way is up,” the tattoo artist mentioned he nonetheless “loved every stressful moment of it.” Additionally, Frank “learned so much” about himself and the right way to play the sport.
He thanked the artists he discovered from in Season 10 and “quickly realized” he went from “a two-month whirlwind to a life where almost nothing was spinning but me. I was incredibly motivated, and my butt would tell you that a fire was definitely lit under it” after the judges eradicated him.
However, since then, Frank observed he has “progressed” and carries the critiques he obtained into each tattoo he at present does, which has made him a greater artist.
For Season 13, Frank acknowledges he, together with the opposite returning artists, are the “juggernauts” now, and he feels “more ready” this time round. Ultimately, in keeping with Frank, he “got here again as a result of Ink Master helped form me into the artist I’m now. Ink Master grew to become my residence, and regardless of the place you go in life, ultimately, you all the time come again residence.”
Watch Frank Ready compete together with his Midwest workforce on Ink Master Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on Paramount Network.
