Tiffer Wright has made it to the top three on Season 11 of Ink Master. He’ll be up against Tony Medellin and Teej Poole as they face off in hopes of winning the $100,000 prize and a feature in Inked magazine.

One of the perks of appearing on Ink Master, in addition to the prizes, is the massive amount of exposure each artist has received throughout the season. In addition to having their name flashed everywhere, they are able to show off their work and effectively grow their own tattoo business.

Tiffer Wright was already a popular tattooist in Dallas, Texas prior to joining Season 11 of Ink Master. Known for his color work, he has a strong social media following with more than 63,000 followers on Instagram.

Wright is a part owner of Folklore Trading Company, a tattoo shop located near downtown Dallas. The shop currently has 4.7 stars out of 5 on Google and many of their reviews talk about the immense talent within.

Tiffer has said on Ink Master this season that he specializes in color work and while his black and grey isn’t bad, it’s clear that when it comes to full color, vibrant tattoos, he is one of the best.

With the exploding popularity of cats, Tiffer has tattooed many of them and does them really well. For that, he has been nicknamed “Cat Daddy” and many tattoo aficionados flock to him in hopes of getting some of that feline ink.

With 11 years in the business, Tiffer Wright is just getting started. Before turning to ink, the Lubbock, Texas native was a motocross racer for five years. With a need for speed and a heart for competition, Tiffer is perfect for Ink Master and that’s probably why he’s had no problem climbing his way into the top 3.

With the theme this season being a Grudge Match, Tiffer Wright was chosen to compete on Team Cleen, with Ink Master veteran Cleen Rock One acting as his team captain.


With four tattoo of the day wins and three immunity wins during the season, Tiffer is neck and neck with Teej Poole as the one to beat during the Season 11 finale. Will he pull off the win and take home the prize?

The Season 11 finale of Ink Master airs on Tuesday, December 18 at 10/9c on Paramount.
