Dekalb tattoo artist on TV

Posted by wlpo on June 16, 2013

– A northern Illinois tattoo artist is one of 16 contestants on a reality TV show competing for a $100,000 prize.   Chris May owns Proton Tattoo in DeKalb and will compete on the Spike network’s “Ink Master” show.   Hosted by musician Dave Navarro, the third season of the competition will begin airing next month.  May tells The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle that producers ran contestants “through the wringer” while taping episodes, which featured challenges to test cast members’ tattooing and artistic skills.   But he thinks he impressed them with his quick wit, thanks to his time studying at The Second City in Chicago.
