UPDATE: What you need to know about MTV’s ‘How Far Is Tattoo Far?’

The new MTV series How Far Is Tattoo Far? premieres this week and if you’re a fan of tattoos mixed with surprise reveals and relationship drama, then this new show might be what you’re looking for.

How Far Is Tattoo Far? is a new MTV show where friends, family members and couples to design tattoos for one another. The tattoos won’t be revealed until after the tattoo is completed and already we’re anticipating a lot of anxiety involved with the process.

The show is hosted by Jersey Shore Family Vacation’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Younger’s Nico Tortorella. The two will give best friends, partners and family members the power to design a tattoo they feel is best for the other person. The tattoo can of anything and can be on any part of the person’s body. Polizzi and Tortorella will work with talented tattoo artists who will help transform the tattoo designs to permanent ink. The other person will not be able to see the tattoo until it’s completely finished.

If this sounds vaguely familiar it’s because the show is based on the international version of the show called Just Tattoo of Us that airs in the UK. It’s evident that MTV really enjoys the tattoo puns here.

If the US version is anything close to the version from across the pond, it might just be worth watching. 

The first episode of MTV’s How Far Is Too Far? featured Jersey Shore’s Angelina and her fiance Chris in the first segment and two best friends Dacota and Melody in the second segment. Both duos designed tattoos for the other person and when they were revealed, they could not believe what was done to them. 

The second episode featured two cousins designing what they believed to be tattoos that fit the other person’s personality and ex-lovers who may have gone way too far with their tattoo choices.
