Hours ahead of the Season 10 finale, Paramount Network has ordered a 16-episode 11th season of its hit original tattoo-competition series Ink Master, slated for premiere later this year.

Ink Master continues to dominate in ratings, ranking No. 1 with adults 18-49 and women 18-49 in its timeslot on cable.

“I am ecstatic to see Ink Master reach its eleventh season as it continues to be a great ratings driver for the network,” said Chachi Senior, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Paramount Network. “Coming on the heels of an exciting tenth season, we’re psyched to give the fans another great season.”

Each week Ink Master puts artists through a series of tattoo challenges that not only test the artists’ technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, as they must create and execute an original tattoo on a “human canvas.” Each episode focuses on a different and distinct style of tattooing such as realism, black and gray, and American traditional. After every challenge, the contestants face a tough panel made up of series host Dave Navarro and world renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez (Miami Ink) and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).

Ink Master will crown its latest winner at the Season 10 finale on Tuesday, April 24. In addition, Ink Master spinoff series Ink Master: Angels is currently in its second season.

Ink Master and Ink Master: Angels are produced for Paramount Network by Truly Original (Swamp People, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Vanity Fair Confidential) with Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock and Andrea Richter serving as executive producers. Truly Original is a subsidiary of Endemol Shine North America.
