The Ink Master judges moved on to another jersey, the one worn by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Oliver Peck spoke up first. “My main problem with this logo are the lines in the glove. They just look too busy. Then, the penguin is naked and wearing skates.”

Navarro spoke up, “Well, it’s a skating penguin. It’s a bird. It doesn’t need to wear clothes.”

Peck shook his head and chomped on his toothpick. He continued, “All those lines in the glove, and there’s no line distinguishing between the skates and the penguins legs.”

Penguin’s captain Sidney Crosby spoke in defense of his team’s logo. “We used to have this weird geometric logo that was very 90s. But they returned to the throwback penguin.”

Peck agreed, “They should’ve thrown the penguin back alright.”

Chris Nuñez chimed in, “It looks like a child’s drawing. That takes this thing away from looking fierce, like a hockey logo should.”

Navarro remarked, “The bird looks pretty cool, like he’d be fun to hang around with.”

Peck shook his head and chomped on his toothpick, as if he couldn’t believe how much pot Dave Navarro had smoked in his Jane’s Addiction days. The judges moved on to the final jersey under consideration.
