As one of the three big shows on the cabler, paired to Bar Rescue and Ink Master, now Tattoo Nightmares is getting renewed for season three that will consist on 26 more episodes set to air in 2014 on Spike.

In the official announcement, where Ink Master was also renewed, official word said:  “These two series showcase tattooing as the incredible art form it has evolved into and are emblematic of Spike’s new direction as we’re appealing to a broader audience with compelling original programming.”

“Tattoo Nightmares” is produced by 495 Productions (“Jersey Shore,” “FriendZone,” “Snooki & JWOWW”) with SallyAnn Salsano and Joel Zimmer as Executive Producers. The series showcases real people with really bad tattoos who seek the help of some of the best cover-up artists in the business to fix them.
