MTV PREMIERES NEW SHOW "JUST TATTOO OF US", PUTS RELATIONSHIPS TO THE TEST

MTV Asia Conceives Local Stunts To Promote New Show, Gets Buddies to Design Tattoos and Have Them Inked on Each Other!

04 MAY 2017, SINGAPORE
Summary
Would you let your buddy design a tattoo for you? The hotly anticipated new MTV show, "Just Tattoo Of Us" sees pairs of friends, families, couples and even some celebs put to the test by designing tattoos for each other. The catch? The person being tattooed doesn’t get to see the final outcome until the big reveal, when it’s too late and imprinted on their body… for life. MTV Asia took one step further and conceived the Ultimate Trust Test to showcase the premise of MTV's new show, which premieres on MTV Asia on Monday, 8 May. In its latest stunt with the Ultimate Trust Test, MTV Asia worked with local tattoo artists from the 2017 Singapore Ink Show and selected some willing locals who shared their secret tattoo designs to be inked on their buddy at MTV's recent pop-up booth at Artbox, a hipster market.

Would you let your buddy design a tattoo for you? The hotly anticipated new MTV show, Just Tattoo Of Us will be hitting MTV Asia every Monday, starting 8 May at 9pm (WIB), 10pm (SG/ PH), 11pm (MAL). Hosted by reality TV royalty Charlotte Crosby and Stephen Bear, the show sees pairs of friends, families, couples and even some celebs put to the test by designing tattoos for each other. The catch? The person being tattooed doesn’t get to see the final outcome until the big reveal, when it’s too late and imprinted on their body… for life.

Each week, three couples will be put through a test of trust as they design bespoke tattoos from declarations of love to the downright bizarre, resulting in some of the most jaw-dropping reactions on TV. If you think having Donald Trump’s face tattooed to your backside is shocking, wait until you see the other tattoos in store this season...

So which lucky guests will be brave enough to get inked for the show?

Episode one features none other than Charlotte’s bestie and partner in crime, Sophie Kasaei alongside boyfriend Joel Corry. Also joining this series’ stellar line-up are Geordie Shore royalty Holly Hagan, Kyle Christie and Nathan Henry, Ex on the Beach favourites Sean Pratt, Jess Impiazzi, and Ashley Cain with girlfriend Chloe Khan, The Valleys sweetheart Lateysha Grace and Union J heartthrob Jaymi Hensley. Oh, and how could we forget our very own Just Tattoo of Us hosts Charlotte Crosby and Stephen Bear will also be climbing into the chair and testing each other’s new found trust… or not. They don’t have an ink-ling what they’ve let themselves in for!

Meantime, MTV Asia took one step further and conceived the Ultimate Trust Test to showcase the premise of Just Tattoo Of Us. In its latest stunt with the Ultimate Trust Test which will showcase across MTV's TV and social media platforms, MTV Asia worked with local tattoo artists from the 2017 Singapore Ink Show and selected some willing locals who shared their secret tattoo designs to be inked on their buddy at MTV's recent pop-up booth at Artbox, a hipster market.
