Local tattoo artist, Josh Payne, known worldwide, is staring in "Ink Master" on Spike TV hoping to win $100,000.00.

Payne, from Cortland NY, is one 24 contestants in season 10 of Ink Master. He's on Team DJ, who won season 9 and can hopefully help Payne make it all the way to win $100,000, a feature in "Inked" magazine and the title of Ink Master.

As you see above, Payne already has the respect of all his teammates. He told Syracuse.com that his 165,000 followers on Instagram might have helped him get on the program.

Out of 24 artists, six have already been cut. At the 1:23 mark see Payne tell us how excited he is to enjoy the ride.
