In recent years, television shows have focused on a variety of different trades. Thanks to a rise on tattoos lately, a new show called “Ink Masters” was created.
Now, reports from TMZ are stating that one of the tattoo artists featured on the show has just been arrested. Chris Blinston has been arrested on charges of felony domestic battery by strangulation.
"Ink Masters" star Chris Blinston allegedly used both hands to choke his 13-year-old daughter so hard he squeezed off her airway ... leaving her terrified and gasping for air, according to TMZ.
Blinston’s daughter opened up and said her dad tried to choke her after the pair got into an argument. The incident occurred at his house during a custody visit. Reports also state that the daughter finally called the police after her dad strangled her a second time on the same day.
According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ --, the daughter says Blinston grabbed her around the neck and squeezed off her airway and was unable to breathe for 10 seconds. When he finally let go, she told him, "You just choked me, after everything that's gone on the past two days, you're choking me!"
Bliston is denying the allegations. At this time, he has been released after posting a $6,000 bond. He is hopeful his side of the situation will be brought to light.
