On Thursday, MTV put in an order for a U.S. version of Just Tattoo of Us, with your hosts Nicole “Snooki” LaValle (née Polizzi) and Nico Tortorella, Deadline reports. Snooki is, of course, a star of the Jersey Shore franchise; Tortorella was in Scream 4, and currently stars in the TV series Younger. So, yes, this all make total sense.
The original Just Tattoo of Us is UK-produced, in its third season, and one of the top-performing shows on MTV’s international roster.
The premise of the show, as Deadline has it, sounds sort of sweet, like, if I had that kind of time to waste:
“Produced by Big Fish Entertainment, Just Tattoo of Us puts relationships through the ultimate experiment of trust by asking pairs of friends, family members and couples to design tattoos for each other that won’t be revealed until after they’ve been permanently inked. Led by Polizzi and Tortorella, and with the help of some of the most creative and talented tattoo artists in the industry, the series will follow the blindfolded duos as they learn the stories behind the tattoo designs that are now on their bodies.”
A modern-day Newlywed Game! With more pain and commitment, sure, but at least they’re not walking around with VR helmets or having to compete in rope climbing competitions throughout. Plus: no questions! Only blind acceptance—aw.
