LA Ink Collection 12 DVD Review. I do wish this had literally been like a whole season, that would have rocked and been worth it, instead we have a collection that I'd strongly suggest waiting for a massive price drop before buying.

LA Ink Collection 12

I was stoked to get LA Ink to review for impulsegamer. Having been a fan of tattoos and piercing for a very long time, it was good to have a series to watch that covered just that. This collection was extremely enjoyable watching but unfortunately ultimately failed to impress me, not because of the content but because of how little there actually was to watch.

Firstly, four episodes spanning two DVDs is almost insulting, especially when there are no extras on the discs that I could see. Back in the day companies could get away with this sort of nonsense that made punters feel like they were getting something massive, but now people simply want their shows to watch and we don't care if they fit on one DVD or six. Something that really annoyed me was the use of collection in the title too. Four episodes is not a collection and there was not even a theme to hold it together.

I'm at a bit of a loss here to be honest, I loved the episodes on these discs but really I can't get behind this "collection" and what poor value for money it represents. The artists at the tattoo studio High Voltage are utterly amazing, and I am sincerely envious of those lucky enough to get inked by these talented people. I do wish the shows focused more on the art than the personal lives of Kat and her mates, there were a lot of montage sequences showing tattooing that made me wish I could see more of those tatts being done instead of the latest dramas happening to the people.

Kat herself is an utter delight to watch and listen to, and she certainly proves herself every time she picks up a tattoo gun. She is scary good at what she does and her design aesthetic is phenomenal.

The episodes themselves feel disjointed and there is no resolution to them. In one, Kat arranges to have her wedding dress designed but we never get to see the darn thing. A big fuss is made of her long distance relationship wih her fiancé, but that is not completed in any meaningful way either. Kat also takes on a new room mate with major baggage and an utterly annoying personality but we never get to see how that wraps up either. It just gets annoying over the course of the collection and without extras to flesh this out I can't see where the suggested retail of $34.95 is justified.

I do wish this had literally been like a whole season, that would have rocked and been worth it, instead we have a collection that I'd strongly suggest waiting for a massive price drop before buying.
