Tattoo artist develops “Ink Shrinks” TV show

Justin Nordine from the Raw Canvas Tattoo Studio and Art Gallery in downtown Grand Junction has developed a television show titled “Ink Shrinks.”

The show is scheduled to premier at 9 p.m. Dec. 16 as a pilot episode on Spike TV following the broadcast of the  season finale of “Ink Master Live.”

Nordine has worked on the television project about  year.

Nordine and tattoo artists Sara Miller and Tim Boor team up with psychologists and other professionals who prescribe “blind tattoos” as a means of healing.

After discussing a client’s issues, the team designs a unique tattoo. Clients put their faith in their “ink shrinks” since they won’t know what a tattoo looks like until the session is complete and the artwork irreversible.

The Raw Canvas Tattoo Studio and Art Gallery is located at 507 Main St. For additional information about the operation, call 985-9649 or log on to the Web site located at

    I’m horrified by this show. Who are these psychogists and how is this ethical????
