Our hometown "Ink Master" Mike Diaz visited our studios, so of course we wanted to know what being an Ink Master is really like.

"Ink Master" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. CT on The Paramount Network. As of the writing of this post, Mike is still very alive in the game.

Want to meet or even get tattooed by an Ink Master? The Lubbock Tattoo Expo is here starting today (Friday, February 2) through the end of the weekend. For more information, head over to the Lubbock Tattoo Expo website. Of course, you can always visit Mike's shop, Sunken City Ink, when the expo is over.
