    That sucks that you have to live in the NEW YORK tri state area . I would like to be a human canvas, but i live in TEXAS

      I agree this is not fair at all. Being discriminated against by the state you live in, totally uncool. How about we take the ratings of the other states out of the national ratings and see how popular the show is without them then. Let us see just the ratings of the NY tri-state area is then.

    I am a true southern, straight from the country, girl and would love to come be a human canvas for the show.

    Why do you have to live within the New York region to be a human canvase. I reside in Chicago Illinois and i would live to get a great tattoo and let america see the skills of the artist. Its not right

      I would love to be a canvas on your show. I live in Ohio and have a scar on my lower leg from a accident. I think if you can tattoo a scar and do a good job you can tattoo anything. Please call me if you do scar tattoos. Love your show!
