Spike TV is adding a 5th season including 16 more episodes of Ink Master to its line up. These 16 one hour episodes will premiere sometime this fall. Ink Master features tattoo artists from around the country battling it out each week in permanent ink for a $100,000 cash prize and an editorial feature in Inked magazine. This show continues to be a cornerstone of Spike TV's original programming slate. The network plans to add more tattoo related programming within the next year.
