For the uninitiated, MTV debuted the first season How Far is Tattoo Far? last fall.
The show was a runaway hit because of its tension and cringe-worthy premise. Couples or two friends design tattoos for one another. Participants don’t get to see their new tattoo until it is permanently inked.
And as you can imagine, the fallout is generally ugly… in a very Jerry Springer kind of way.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame and actor Nico Tortorella co-host the show and do a decent job of ramping up the anxiety. Throughout the show, Snooki and Nico are pretty animated about the tattoos as they’re being inked.
