Woodward native and “Ink Master” contestant Joey Hamilton will revisit his hometown for an Aug. 13 viewing party of the show beginning at 8 p.m. at The Scoreboard (previously known as Blue Water Grill Steak & Seafood) at 523 Main Street, Woodward, OK 73801.

A new episode of “Ink Master” will air at 9 p.m. on Spike TV.

Friends, family and fans are invited to the party.

Hamilton will also be visiting his friend’s shop, Paper Street Tattoo Company, on Aug. 14, and fans are encouraged to stop by and say hello.

Details on “Ink Master” and Joey Hamilton, provided in a news release, are as follows:

Spike returns with more skin in the game going into season three of its hit original series “Ink Master,” which returned at 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 16 and will culminate with a LIVE finale in October.  Sixteen of top tattoo artists battle it out in permanent ink for a $100,000 grand prize, an editorial feature in Inked and, of course, the bragging rights title of Œ“Ink Master.”  For the first time this season, the show’s Human Canvases will have a vote in the Elimination Tattoo, helping to determine which artist is ultimately sent home.

Joey Hamilton is one of Season 3′s contestants with talent enough to potentially make it to the finals. He needs the support and help of his friends, family and fans to take part in weekly voting for their favorite artist and tattoo design which will help to determine the winner of this season’s competition: http://www.spike.com/shows/ink-master/skin-in-the-game/blmboh/elysium-challenge

Each episode puts the artist through their paces, competing in various tattoo challenges that are not only designed to test the artists’ technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, where they must create and execute an original tattoo by command on a ŒHuman Canvas.  Artists will be asked to tattoo in a number of distinct styles including black and gray, realism, pin-up, cover-up and Asian, among others.   The masterpieces these artists create will last forever, but so will their mistakes.

After every challenge, the contestants face a tough panel made up of Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction), renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez (“Miami Ink”) and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo) and a roster of guest judges.  Also this season, the Human Canvases will have their say in who gets sent home.  The Canvases will form their own jury, deliberate as a group and pick one artist per episode who will be up for elimination.  In the jury room, expect to witness heated arguments and wicked emotions as the Canvases defend their new ink and protect their artist.

About Joey “Hollywood” Hamilton: During a ten year stint in the U.S. Air Force, Joey “Hollywood” Hamilton became widely exposed to tattoos and immediately fell in love with the art. After getting out of the service, he began refining his technique in Florida before establishing himself in Sin City. Today, Hamilton travels all around the country to promote his work and is primarily known for his realism and photo reproduction skills.
