Lubbock's "Ink Master" Mike Diaz played a huge part in the story of Ink Master Season 10, Episode 5 when his elimination "canvas" couldn't agree on a tattoo with Mike.

Because of this, Mike was nearly eliminated by default until his coach Anthony Michaels agreed to let Mike tattoo him. Anthony got a beautiful rose from Mike that filled the Pixel challenge, but also had organic and geometric elements.

The virtue of the tattoo allowed Mike to stay another week, while Katie Rhoden was eliminated.
