Joel Madden to Host Paramount+ Revival; Dave Navarro to Return as "Master of Chaos" ...

When Ink Master returns via Paramount+ this autumn, major changes are on the way.

Joel Madden, the head singer of the pop/punk band Good Charlotte, will host the 10-episode revival season, which kicks off on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Dave Navarro, the former host of Ink Masters, will return to the show Master of Chaos, where he's responsible for introducing bizarre twists and game-changing bombs to the competition.

Three new judges will join Madden and Navarro: Ryan Ashley, the first female tattoo artist to win Ink Master back in Season 8, Nikko Hurtado, regarded as one of the worlds best color realism artists, and Ami James, a tattoo specialist and entrepreneur.

According to the official description, the winners of this season will win the show's largest prize yet a staggering $250,000.

The legends will have to demonstrate that they have the high level skills that set an Ink Master apart: composition, precision, color theory, finesse, stamina, and endurance. The title continues. With stakes higher than they have ever been, a single misstep might send them home, and, in the end, only one artist will walk away with the title.

Ink Master, produced by Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock, Benjamin Hurvitz, Jessica Zalkind, Tim Palazzola, and Donny Hugo Herran, is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and Truly Original.

Ink Master aired for 13 seasons on the Spike/Paramount Network, spawning three sequels in the process: Ink Master: Redemption, Ink Master: Angels, and Ink Master: Grudge Match.
