Tattoo Rescue (10 x 30′) – The show follows renowned tattoo expert Joey Germinario (aka “Joey Tattoo”) and his team of experts as they travel the country transforming failing tattoo studios into profitable ventures.
At one time, they were the symbol of the culture’s dark underbelly, but now tattoos have gone mainstream with an industry gross of well over $2.3 billion. Despite the fact that more Americans than ever crave permanent ink to wear like a badge of honor, every day countless tattoo shops go out of business, many falling to the stereotypes of being dark, inhospitable and full of unsavory characters.
Joey Tattoo, a native of Hoboken N.J. will use his 22 years of experience in the tattoo business and his larger-than-life personality to rescue these establishments from financial ruin before it’s too late. His knowledge of the tattoo industry is well-known in his home state of New Jersey where he has personally guided a bevy of shops into economic success.
Joey will often have to deal with belligerent owners, obstinate tattoo artists and shops with massive health code violations in his seemingly impossible weekly quest.
