Fameless: Revenge Ink
07:20 AM

If you've ever sat there shaking your head at the sad, sad lengths people will go to in order to be on TV, then you'd appreciate the truTV prank show FAMELESS, produced by David Spade.  As noted on the FAMELESS site, "Each week, the series features a group of unsuspecting desperate-to-be-famous individuals who believe they've been cast on a reality show. However, unbeknownst to them, they are really filming a parody with improv actors creating over-the-top scenarios that steadily increase the absurdity and ridiculousness of each situation."

That desperation gets played out heavily in tattoo reality TV shows, making it a perfect punk for those willing to sacrifice skin for their 15 minutes of fame.

In the FAMELESS Revenge Ink clip (embedded above), aspiring rapper JC believes he's going to be on a show called "Virgin Ink," getting his first tattoo -- a zombie Audrey Hepburn -- on his back by Kat Von D. After Kat finishes the tattoo, producers bring a woman in to confront JC about some misdeed and reveal that he's actually on a show called "Revenge Ink" -- and he didn't get the tattoo he bargained for. Hilarity ensues! And it really does. I won't spoil it for you but I burst out laughing at the end of this preview clip. Worth the watch.
