U.S. cable network A&E will unveil the reality series Bad Ink (pictured) in August.

Produced by Sharp Entertainment, the show follows Las Vegas-based tattoo artists Dirk Vermin and Ruckus as they set out to find and fix the most ill-advised body art in the “city of sin.” In each episode, the duo ambushes convention goers, locals and tourists in a bid to find bad tattoos that they can salvage and transform into works of art.

Bad Ink will premiere on A&E with two back-t0-back episodes on August 11 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Executive producers on the series are A&E’s Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner, and Sharp’s Matt Sharp and Dan Adler. Randy Jones serves as co-executive producer.
