Live Session With Kelly Severtson Competitor in Season 13 of Hit Series Ink Master

One of my personal favorite shows is the hit competition series “Ink Master” which is now on its thirteenth season.  This season, titled Ink Master: Turf War, features contestants from four different regions of the country – East, West, South and Midwest representing their “turf” for a chance to win $100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the coveted “Ink Master” title and premieres Tuesday, January 7th at 10 pm ET/PT.

We caught up with one of team midwest’s members Kelly Severtson to find out more about his journey and what it means for him be a part of the team representing the midwest, what he’ll do with the prize money should he win and much more! Turns out his serious persona hides some interesting personal tidbits about this master of color and illustrative realism!


Throughout the competition, the artists will be tested on their technical skills along with their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on “human canvases.” Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing and, as always, while the artists’ masterpieces will last a lifetime, so will their mistakes. Contestants face a tough panel made up of Dave Navarro (musician, filmmaker and artist) and renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez and Oliver Peck ).
