He already has two prominent TV co-hosting gigs under his belt. And when it comes to tattoos, well, let’s just say that he has four times that amount on his fingers alone.

That unique combination of credentials will serve Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro very well in his new job: as the host — and a judge — of the new Spike TV tattoo competition series ‘InkMaster.’

“Dave Navarro is known worldwide for his musical talents, but he’s also well-known within in the tattoo community for his incredible body art,” says Sharon Levy, Spike TV’s executive vice president, original series and animation. “Dave’s ultimate respect for the art and culture of tattooing makes him perfect for this series.”

Navarro previously was a co-host on CBS’ ‘Rock Star: Supernova’ and ‘Rock Star: INXS.’ For ‘InkMaster,’ he’ll be the sole host and also serve as a judge along with tattoo professionals Oliver Peck and Chris Nunez.

The six-episode series, currently being filmed in New York, is scheduled to air in January. The competition’s winning tattoo artist will win a grand prize of $100,000, plus a feature in Inked Magazine.
