An "Ink Master" Star Has Been Arrested

039;Ink Master' star Chris Blinston arrested for allegedly strangling 13-year-old daughter

"Ink Masters" star Chris Blinston was arrested this week after he allegedly strangled his 13-year-old daughter, squeezing so hard that he cut off her airway.

In a police report obtained by TMZ, the famous tattoo artist's daughter told her therapist that her father choked her twice on Tuesday, August 29, during a custody visit inside his home. "You just choked me, after everything that's gone on the past two days, you're choking me!"

He apparently was having a dispute with the girl when he grabbed her by the neck and choked off her airway, leaving her unable to breathe for ten seconds; when he finally pulled away, she yelled at him, and he choked her again, cutting off her airway for "another six to seven seconds" the second time.

Blinston - who owns a tattoo shop in Coral Springs, Fla. - called his daughter names like "mental skank" and threatened her if she told anyone about the incident, according to the report.

Cops found evidence of strangulation because of marks on the girl's neck, according to a police report. The report also stated that Blinston weighs about 100 pounds more than his daughter.

Blinston posted the $6,000 bond needed for bail on Friday.

According to his website, Blinston is "known for his award-winning artwork, and his dedication and commitment to volunteering". He competed on the 2015 season of Ink Masters.

Blinston, who has over 18 years of tattooing experience, got his start while serving in the Marine Corps.

All allegations have been denied by Blinston's camp. He secured his first job at a tattoo parlor one year later.
