“How Far Is Tattoo Far?” is back for Season 2 on MTV, with more Snooki, more bad tattoos and more dummies from “Floribama Shore.”
In a sneak preview of Thursday’s season premiere, Codi and Kirk from the MTV reality show explain that they see the show as an opportunity for mutual self-improvement. Codi wants Kirk to know that he can’t go around punching people when he’s drunk. And Kirk wants Cody to learn that he can’t throw up in club bathrooms and then make out with strangers.
Two admirable goals, and what better way to learn these lessons than to scar each other’s bodies with embarrassing tattoos? Curious viewers can watch the episode tonight to see how the tattoos turned out, but determining whether or not the tattoos affect the desired personal growth may prove more difficult.
Hosted by Nico Tortorella and “Jersey Shore” alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, “How Far Is Tattoo Far?” enlists pairs of friends to choose outlandish tattoos for each other, which aren’t revealed until they’re completed at the end of the episode.
In addition to the “Floribama Shore” duo, participants this season will also include Cheyenne Floyd and Cory Wharton of “Teen Mom OG,” Zach Holmes and Chad Tepper of “Too Stupid to Die,” “The Real World” couple Tony Raines and Alyssa Giacone, and “The Challenge’s” Kailah Casillas.
“How Far Is Tattoo Far?” returns Thursday, May 23 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
