Teamwork is key to the newest season of the reality show and for the first time all of the contestants are being mentored by previous winners of the show.
The artists are tested on not just their technical abilities but on their on-the-spot creativity as they tattoo original pieces on a new human canvas every week.
Elliot avoided going home after one close call during the third week of competition, but hasn't been up for elimination since.
On the flip side, he has won best tattoo of the day twice: first, in week five during the precision challenge, and again in week seven during the team challenge.
Elliot and the rest of his team will be back on the chopping block Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Paramount/Spike. You can find already aired episodes at http://www.paramountnetwork.com/shows/ink-master
