We have two local female tattoo artists from right here in the Hudson Valley on the latest season of Ink Master.

Reality television is entertaining but make no mistake, it's still a competition and it can be extremely cut throat. Luckily, the Hudson Valley has double the chances to have a resident crowned Ink Master.

In the middle of our Tattoo Redo contest I discovered that we have resident from Poughkeepsie on the show, Ink Master. Elva Stephanie is a tattoo artist her got her start in a small apartment here in Poughkeepsie has been tattooing for years and she even has her own shop now. She's one of two ladies representing the women on during Ink master's battle of the sexes.

Another contestant with local ties is New Windsor's own, Ash Mann. She too owns her own studio and has an impressive resume and reputation as a local artist.

Be sure to check these ladies out and support them as they represent the Hudson Valley every Tuesday night at 10pm on the Paramount Network.
