On Monday, Janelle Hanson from Iron Quill Tattoo, stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about competing on the new season of “Ink Master: Battle of the Sexes”.

According to, teams of male and female tattoo artists battle it out, but only one person will take home $100,000 and the coveted title of Ink Master.
