>> "HOW FAR IS TATTOO FAR." [ SCREAMING ]

>> LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MAKE A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF NOISE FOR SNOOKI AND NICO.

>> HI.

>> HELLO. GUYS, CONGRATULATIONS ON WHAT I DESCRIBED DOWNSTAIRS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DESCRIBE THIS SHOW AS AN AWESOME TIME. THIS SHOW IS WILD. I'M SO EXCITED YOU'RE HERE, SO WONDERFUL TO HAVE BOTH OF YOU BACK ON THE BUILD STAGE. HOW ARE YOU GUYS DOING? BEFORE WE JUMP INTO EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. HOW IS LIFE?

>> GOOD. BUSY.

>> LIFE IS CRAZY.

>> IT'S A LOT.

>> IS THAT THIS MICROPHONE? WHAT IS GOING ON?

>> IT'S LIKE A LITTLE RECORD.

>> YES.

>> THAT'S ME. IS THAT ME?

>> I DON'T KNOW.

>> I ASSURE YOU SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE FREAKING OUT ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW. SCRAMBLING TO FIX THAT.

>> IS IT MY MICROPHONE?

>> WHOA. WHOA.

>> IT'S HAPPENING.

>> I TOLD YOU. HERE WE GO. WE'RE GOOD. WHILE THE MIC IS COMING, LET'S -- WE'RE GOOD. WE IDENTIFIED IT.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT THAT WAS?

>> NICOLE WAS TELLING A GHOST STORY DOWNSTAIRS.

>> IT'S HER! IT'S MY SPIRIT.

>> THAT'S YOUR SPIRIT.

>> YOU'RE BEING HAUNTED NOW LIVE.

>> I'VE BEEN HAUNTED SINCE I WAS BORN.

>> HAUNTED MAKES IT SOUND BAD. WE ALL HAVE SPIRITS THAT FOLLOW US.

>> FAIR ENOUGH.

>> HAUNTED HAS A NEGATIVE CONNOTATION. YOU JUST HAVE A PRESENCE.

>> YEAH.

>> YEP.

>> EVERYONE SAID THAT ABOUT YOU GUYS.

>> WE HAVE A LOT OF GIFTS TO GIVE.

>> WE'RE SPECIAL.

>> LIFE IS PRETTY GOOD RIGHT NOW. YOU HAVE GUYS SHOT THE WHOLE SHOW? ARE YOU STILL GOING? YOU ARE ACTIVELY FILMING?

>> WE SHOT THIS SHOW IN A WEEK AND A HALF.

>> TEN EPISODES.

>> WAS A LOT. WE WERE EMOTIONALLY DRAINED BRI BY THE END OF IT ALL THE EMOTIONS, WE'RE EMPATHS, SO WE FEEL EVERYONE ELSE'S EMOTION. WHEN WE WERE FINISHED, I LITERALLY SLEPT FOR THREE DAYS.

>> I LEARNED MORE ABOUT THE DYNAMICS OF PEOPLE AND JUST THE INTRICACIES OF TRUST AND HONESTY AND COMMUNICATION AND JUST THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE MORE ON THIS SHOW THAN ANYTHING ELSE I'VE EVER WORKED ON.

>> IT WAS LIKE THERAPY TIMES A THOUSAND.

>> IT'S LIKE A TALK SHOW, BUT THERE'S TATTOO STUFF THAT HAPPENED. YOU SIT DOWN, YOU HAVE THESE CONVERSATIONS, YOU WATCH THESE EMOTIONAL ARCS TAKE PLACE. WERE YOU EVER -- YOU GUYS REALLY DO WATCH AND FEEL EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS.

>> EVEN MORE THAN THAT, THEY'RE BLINDFOLDED. IT'S ALMOST LIKE WE CREATED A SENSORY DEPRIVATION THINK TANK. YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE?

>> INTERESTING.

>> THERE'S SO MUCH THAT HAPPENS. YOU HAVE BARELY SEEING THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG ON THE SHOW. WE WERE SHOOTING FOR TEN HOURS WITH EACH COUPLE. YOU ARE GETTING MAYBE EIGHT MINUTES OF STORY.

>> YEAH.

>> I WISH THE SHOW WAS LONGER.

>> HOW MANY WOULD YOU DO IN A DAY?

>> UP TO THREE. SOMETIMES THREE COUPLES A DAY. THE UK VERSION IS AN HOUR LONG FOR TWO COUPLES. OURS IS A HALF HOUR FOR TWO COUPLES. WE'RE GOING NONSTOP.

>> YOU'RE MISSING A LOT THAT WE SAW AND WENT THROUGH.

>> OBVIOUSLY YOU GUYS ARE BOTH THAT FAMILIAR, YOU HAD SEEN THE UK VERSION BEFORE YOU WALKED INTO THE ROOM. IT'S A DIFFERENT THING TO WATCH IT ON A SCREEN AND THEN BE IN THE MIDDLE OF IT AND EXPERIENCING IT.

>> DAY ONE YOU GUYS WALK IN.

>> DAY ONE.

>> REMEMBER THAT?

>> DAY ONE.

>> DAY ONE NICO ALMOST QUIT. NOT KIDDING.

>> THE DEVIL BABY WAS DAY ONE. JUST ONE COUPLE THAT CAME IN. WE HAD SHOT THE PILOT ALMOST A YEAR PRIOR ACTUALLY.

>> NO WAY.

>> YEAH. AND NOT THE PILOT EPISODE THAT ANYONE SAW.

>> THE ONE THAT AIRED?

>> NO. NO. WE KEEP TALKING ABOUT SPIRITUALITY. WE HAVE PRACTICES. THE FIRST TATTOO OUT THE GATE IS A DEVIL BABY? WE'RE PUTTING A HEX ON AN UNBORN CHILD?

>> YEAH.

>> WE LOST IT.

>> YEAH. YEAH.

>> I CAME IN WITH CRYSTALS THE NEXT DAY. I SAID WE'RE CHANGING THE VIBE.

>> WE HAVE TO CLEANSE.

>> WE DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR A SHOW LIKE THIS.

>> IT TURNED OUT GOOD. EVERYTHING TURNED OUT AMAZING.

>> THERE ARE SOME BEAUTIFUL TATTOOS.

>> IT'S NOT ALL NEGATIVE. IT’S NOT ALL REVENGE.

>> EVEN SOME OF THE MEANER TATTOOS, THE INTENTION BEHIND THEM IS INCREDIBLE. YOU'RE SEEING PEOPLE OPEN UP TO EACH OTHER IN A WAY THAT, LIKE, THEY DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WITHOUT BEING IN THIS CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT, WHICH IS SO FASCINATING TO ME.

>> YEAH. IT REALLY IS. YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE.

>> YEAH.

>> WHAT'S REALLY FASCINATING TO ME IS WATCHING YOU GUYS AND THE WAY IN WHICH YOU RESPONDED TO THEIR ENERGY AS THEY NAVIGATE THIS MOMENT. SOMETIMES LIKE WITH THE CHASTITY BELT, YOU ARE TRYING TO HELP HER NAVIGATE IT. YOU CAN TURN THIS AROUND. IT WILL BE OKAY.

>> NICO MADE SURE TO PUT A POSITIVE SPIN ON EVERYTHING. ME, I WAS LIKE THAT'S FUCKED UP. I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO SOMEBODY. HE WAS LIKE THAT COULD WORK.

>> LET'S TALK ABOUT THE CHASTITY BELT. IT DATES BACK TO --

>> NO, THAT'S FUCKED UP.

>> GOOD COP, BAD COP.

>> GO HOME.

>> SHUT UP.

>> DID YOU EVER FIND --

>> DID YOU JUST SNORT?

>> YOU DID.

>> THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

>> DID YOU EVER FIND YOURSELVES DUMFOUNDED OR SPEECHLESS OR FORGET THAT YOUR JOB WAS TO TALK IN THIS MOMENT BUT YOU COULDN'T SAY ANYTHING? YOU WERE WELCOMED INTO THE WAR WITH THE DEMON ONE. IS THE BAR HIGHER OR LOWER --

>> THE WHOLE BAR.

>> THE WHOLE BAR IS SET.

>> WHERE DO YOU --

>> SPEAKING OF.

>> YES.

>> WHEN NICOLE IS SOBER, WE CALL HER NICOLE.

>> NATURALLY.

>> I'M NICOLE TODAY. I THINK I WAS SNOOKI LAST TIME.

>> THERE IS SNOOKI AND THEN ALSO DREN.

>> DREN IS NOT A GOOD ONE.

>> SNOOKI CAME TO SET --

>> WHY IS DREN NOT A GOOD ONE?

>> DID YOU EVER SEE THE MOVIE SUPPLIES? SPLICE? THE NICE ALIEN AND THEN IT TURNS. I GET MEAN DRUNK. I HIT PEOPLE. I'M NOT A NICE PERSON.

>> WHAT IS YOUR CLOSEST VERSION OF A MEMORY WHEN YOU WERE DREN?

>> HAVE YOU SEEN "JERSEY SHORE"?

>> YEAH. THERE. THERE. NO, THAT'S THE FUN ME. I NEVER DREN THERE.

>> A COUPLE TIMES I FEEL LIKE DREN CAME OUT. NO? BACK IN THE DAY.

>> I FEEL LIKE THEY EDITED IT OUT SO I DON'T LOOK LIKE A COMPLETE ASS.

>> THERE WERE A COUPLE TIMES DURING REVEALS --

>> OH, MY GOD. I WAS SO --

>> SNOOKI CAN BARELY STAND UP. FULL HICCUPS. JUST -- NICO, I HATE THAT TATTOO.

>> THE EPISODE DIDN'T AIR YET.

>> I FEEL LIKE ONE OF THEM DID.

>> REALLY? NOT THE HICCUP ONE.

>> NOT THAT ONE.

>> I WAS WASTED.

>> IT WAS HONESTLY A DREAM COME TRUE.

>> YEAH.

>> I DID DRINK WINE DURING SOME REVEALS, NOT TO GET WASTED, TO CALM MY NERVES. IT'S SO STRESSFUL. THANK GOD THEY HAD A WINE BAR FOR ME. I HAD A GLASS OF WINE. I CALMED DOWN. THOSE REVEALS ARE INSANE.

>> THE ANXIETY MUST BE THROUGH THE ROOF. YOU ARE CRAWLING OUT OF YOUR SKIN AS YOU WAIT FOR THAT MOMENT.

>> IT'S JUST A METAPHOR FOR THE WORLD THAT WE'RE LIVING IN. WE'RE JUST GETTING BLIND BY FUCKED.

>> I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE TATTOOS. LET ME ASK YOU THIS YOU TALKED A LOT IN OTHER INTERVIEWS ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE TATTOOS. DO EITHER OF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ON YOUR BODY THAT MAYBE YOU REGRET THAT YOU WANT TO CHANGE OR UPDATE OR SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT TO MODIFY?

>> YES.

>> OH.

>> YES.

>> I'VE BEEN GETTING TATTOOED SINCE I WAS 15. I HAVE CHINESE ON MY BACK THAT I JUST -- YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T NEED TO GET THAT AS A WHITE KID IN THE MIDWEST AT 15 YEARS OLD. I HAVE SOME WORK THAT'S NOT AS GREAT AS OTHER STUFF THAT I HAVE. YEAH. THERE'S STUFF THAT WILL CHANGE AND EVOLVE. I HAVE SOME COVER-UPS ALREADY.

>> I DON'T REGRET ANY OF MY TATTOOS. BUT THE WORK ON MY BACK, IT'S STARTING TO FADE. SO I WILL PROBABLY FIX THAT AND ADD SOMETHING TO IT.

>> IS THERE ANYTHING ON NICO YOU WOULD CHANGE AND VICE VERSA?

>> ARE WE STILL TALKING ABOUT TATOOS?

>> OH.

>> LET'S START THERE AND SEE WHERE THIS GOES.

>> THERE'S NOT A SINGLE THING I WOULD CHANGE ABOUT YOU.

>> SAME. WE'RE BESTIES.

>> OBVIOUSLY YOU TWO HATE EACH OTHER.

>> YEAH.

>> HOW LONG HAVE YOU ACTUALLY KNOWN EACH OTHER? WAS IT THE SHOW THAT BROUGHT YOU TOGETHER?

>> A YEAR.

>> GET OUT OF HERE, A YEAR?

>> A YEAR SINCE THE PILOT.

>> WE SHOT THE PILOT. WE WERE HANGING OUT FOR A WEEK WHEN WE DID THAT. THEN WE HUNG OUT FOR BASICALLY TWO WEEKS STRAIGHT. WE HAVE BEEN DOING PRESS. SO IN THE BIG SCHEME OF THINGS WE PROBABLY ONLY SPENT A MONTH AND A HALF TOGETHER.

>> YEAH. NOTHING CRAZY.

>> BUT --

>> WE'RE SO COMFORTABLE WITH EACH OTHER.

>> YEAH.

>> I'VE KNOWN HER FOR LIFETIMES.

>> WHEN YOU CLICK WITH SOMEBODY LIKE THAT, HAVE YOU FOUND WEIRD COINCIDENCES BETWEEN YOUR FRIENDSHIPS?

>> WHEN WE FIRST MET. I FEEL WE'RE SOUL BEST FRIENDS I FEEL.

>> YEAH. WE FOUND OUT -- THERE'S A WOMAN THAT LIVES DEEP IN LONG ISLAND NAMES PAT LONGO.

>> SHE'S AMAZING.

>> I REFER TO HER AS THE DUMBLEDORE OF THE TRI-STATE AREA. SHE TRAINS PSYCHICS AND MEDIUMS IN THE 100s PER YEAR. I HAD GONE TO HER TWO DAYS BEFORE WE FILMED THE PILOT. SHE TOLD ME NICOLE CAME TO HER THE MONTH PRIOR. NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT THIS PERSON. THE FACT WE WENT TO --

>> NOBODY KNOWS I'M INTO SPIRITUAL STUFF LIKE THAT.

>> THEY DO NOW.

>> IT WAS WEIRD WE BOTH WENT TO HER.

>> IS THAT THE WEIRDEST THING YOU EXPERIENCED? THAT'S THE UNIVERSE LINING THINGS UP.

>> MM-HMM.

>> FROM TWO BIG ITALIAN FAMILIES, TOO. SO THE DYNAMIC WHERE IS USED TO FROM GROWING UP ARE EXACTLY THE SAME.

>> 100%.

>> WE'RE THE SAME AGE.

>> I'M OLDER.

>> WE SHARE CLOTHES. YOU KNOW --

>> I'M THE BOSS. BECAUSE I'M OLDER.

>> THAT HOW THAT WORKS?

>> MM-HMM.

>> OKAY.

>> I FEEL LIKE YOU WOULD BE THE BOSS NO MATTER WHAT.

>> SAME.

>> IT'S YOUR ENERGY.

>> THAT'S NOT A COMMENT ON YOU. JUST A TESTAMENT TO THE FORCE.

>> YOU'RE MORE ASSERTIVE. I'M THE BOSS. IF I WANTED IT MY WAY, YOU WOULD LET ME HAVE IT MY WAY.

>> TOTALLY. ABSOLUTELY.

>> YOU'RE THE BOSS. WHAT ABOUT -- I FEEL LIKE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE SEEN YOU -- I'VE SEEN YOU HOST A THING BEFORE, BUT THIS IS YOUR REGULAR HOSTING GIG THAT YOU TWO HAVE DONE TOGETHER AND IN GENERAL HOW DOES THAT FEEL SCHEDULE WORK-WISE COMPARED TO THE STUFF YOU'RE USED TO DOING? YOU TALKED ABOUT WHAT YOU LEARNED FROM THIS EXPERIENCE. HAS THIS WORK BEEN MORE FUN? EASIER? SOMETHING YOU WANT TO DO MORE OF? HOW DO YOU FEEL AFTER THIS?

>> FOR ME, BECAUSE I WANT TO DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN REALITY. BECAUSE WHEN I SHOOT "JERSEY SHORE," I DON'T SEE MY KIDS. I'M NOT HOME. IT GIVES ME ANXIETY. I DON'T LIKE LEAVING MY HOME ANYMORE LIKE THAT. I WANTED TO GET INTO HOSTING SOMEHOW. THIS IS THE PERFECT FIT FOR ME. IT'S ON MTV. IT'S A FUN SHOW. I STILL GET TO HAVE MY WINE BUT I'M NOT LEAVING MY KIDS. I STILL CAN GO HOME AT THE END OF THE DAY, BE A MOM AND HOST. I THINK NOW IN MY LIFE I PREFER THIS MORE THAN REALITY TV.

>> IS THAT PART OF YOUR NEGOTIATION, I'LL HAVE MY WINE?

>> THEY KNOW. IF YOU'RE HIRING ME YOU NEED STOCKED WINE.

>> IT JUST MAKES FOR GREAT TELEVISION.

>> YEAH.

>> THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING. WE DID KATHIE AND HODA BEFORE WE CAME HERE. YOU WILL TAKE OVER ONE OF THEIR JOBS.

>> ALL THEY DO IS DRINK WINE IN THE MORNING AND TALK.

>> HELLO!

>> IT'S THE PERFECT JOB FOR NICOLE FROM.

>> HIRE ME IN 20 YEARS.

>> WE WILL WILL THAT INTO EXISTENCE.

>> I'VE BEEN PLAYING MAKE BELIEVE ON TELEVISION FOR TEN YEARS ALMOST. THE WORLD KNOWS ME AS CHARACTERS I'VE PLAYED OUTSIDE THE FIELDS OF SOCIAL JUSTICE. I LOVE IT. I LOVE PLAYING MYSELF. I GET TO BE ME. I GET TO HAVE FUN. AND WE GET TO CREATE, YOU KNOW? PEOPLE IN GENERAL LOOK AT REALITY TELEVISION AND SOMETHING LIKE THIS AS SUPER LOW BROW. THAT'S JUST KIND OF THE VIBE IN THE ART WORLD. BUT THERE'S SOMETHING SO -- ALMOST GUERRILLA THEATER ABOUT IT. IT'S PERFORMANCE ART. I THINK NICOLE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST PERFORMANCE ARTISTS OF OUR GENERATION.

>> YOU'RE SO SWEET. YOU'RE AWESOME.

>> SHE KNOW ALSO A SHE'S BEEN DOING.

>> I DO. NOT TO SAY I'M ACTING, BUT I KNOW WHEN TO TURN IT ON.

>> TEN YEARS LATER SHE'S AS RELEVANT IF NOT MORE TODAY THAN SHE WAS WHEN THE SHOW STARTED.

>> PRETTY AMAZING.

>> NOT EASY TO DO. SOME PEOPLE USE IT FOR GOOD. AS WE KNOW IN THIS COUNTRY SOME PEOPLE USE REALITY TELEVISION AND PERFORMANCE ART FOR THE WORST POSSIBLE THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.

>> THERE'S A VAST SPECTRUM.

>> YEAH. THE SHORT ANSWER IS I WANT TO DO MORE OF THIS BUT IN SPACES THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

>> IT'S FUNNY YOU MENTIONED THAT. ONE THING THAT STUCK OUT IS THE AMOUNT OF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION OF THE PEOPLE COMING IN TO DO IT. WAS THAT SOMETHING THAT JUST HAPPENED NATURALLY BECAUSE YOU'RE DOING A SHOW ON MTV? WAS THAT CONVERSATION HAD COMING INTO THE SHOW? I WANT TO SEE EVERYBODY IN HERE?

>> THERE'S A GOOD MIX OF JERSEY FOLK AND QUEER PEOPLE ON THE SHOW.

>> YES.

>> I FEEL LIKE I GET IT. THAT WAS ONE OF MY FIRST QUESTIONS, HOW MANY QUEER PEOPLE ARE WE HAVING IN THIS SEASON. WHEN WE GOT THE BREAKDOWN, I WAS LIKE, OH MY GOD. WE HAVE NON-BINARY PEOPLE. DRAG QUEENS. SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEOPLE ON THIS SHOW.

>> THE SWEET TATTOO, DID THAT AIR? WHERE WE CRIED?

>> NO. NO.

>> WE CAN'T TALK ABOUT THAT.

>> NO.

>> THERE'S AMAZING -- WE WERE IN TEARS WE WERE SO HAPPY.

>> OH. I'M EXCITED FOR THAT.

>> WE HAVE GOOD MOMENTS.

>> WE CRY SO MUCH ON THIS SHOW.

>> WE'RE SO EMOTIONAL.

>> OH, MY GOD. EVEN ON EDDIE AND SHIVONNA'S EPISODE. WE WERE MESSES.

>> I KNOW.

>> BUT THEY DIDN'T CUT TO US IN TEARS. I WAS LIKE THAT -- THAT WAS A WASTE. THAT WAS A WASTE.

>> COOL.

>> WE'RE GIVING YOU A-PLUS PERFORMANCE HERE.

>> YOU HAVE ALL THOSE PEOPLE, AND THEN THE FIRST ONE THAT AIRED, ANGELINA COMES IN.

>> DID PAULY AND VINNY SAY NO? HOW DID YOU CONVINCE HER TO DO IT?

>> SHE'S A DUMB ASS. HEY, BABE, DO YOU WANT TO COME ON THE SHOW AND BE BLINDFOLDED AND GET TATTOOED? EVERYONE ELSE WAS LIKE NO, WHY WOULD I DO THAT? SURE.

>> SHE HAS SIX SEASONS TO CATCH UP.

>> IT BLEW ME AWAY. WE'RE ALL WATCHING THE "JERSEY SHORE," I FEEL LIKE THEY FOUGHT LESS ON TATTOO THAN THEY DID AT THE DINNER YOU HAD. IT WAS CRAZY. THEY WERE PRETTY COOL WITH IT ALL CONSIDERING. I THINK SHE SET THE BAR AT BAG OF DICKS, SHE DIDN'T GET THAT.

>> THE WORST TATTOO IMAGINABLE ON THE SHOW IS A DICK.

>> EVERY COUPLE WAS LIKE DON'T GIVE ME A DICK.

>> WHAT? THE POWER OF THE PENIS, SHALL WE FOR ONE SECOND --

>> YES.

>> THE MEDICINAL QUALITY. WE HAVE ALL COME FROM A PENIS QUITE LITERALLY IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

>> SAME.

>> WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THE DICK, YO? I HAVE A DICK TATTOO.

>> FOR REAL.

>> EVERYBODY WAS AFRAID OF GETTING A DICK AND EVERYONE IS LIKE I'M GIVING YOU THIS TATTOO TO REMIND YOU YOU NEED TO TAKE CONTROL AND CALM DOWN. THERE WAS A LOT OF THAT. A LOT OF PEOPLE -- THE SYMBOLISM BEHIND IT. YEAH, THE DICK THING, I WAS STARTLED BY. ALMOST EVERY EPISODE, THAT WAS THEIR NIGHTMARE SCENARIO.

>> DON'T GIVE ME A DICK.

>> FAIR ENOUGH. WE'LL HAVE DEMON SEMEN COMING OUT OF THE UNDERWEAR. AS LONG AS IT'S NOT A DICK.

>> THEY KEEP GIVING ME THE SIGNAL, PROBABLY BECAUSE I SAID DICK SO MANY TIMES IN A ROW.

>> IT'S THE INTERNET, YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING. ESPECIALLY THAT!

>> DICK!

>> PERFECT. LET'S MOVE ON. WE HAVE AUDIENCE QUESTIONS.

>> OKAY. LETS GET SOME QUESTIONS. MICROPHONE, RIGHT IN THE FRONT.

>> NO DICK QUESTIONS, PLEASE. ALL RIGHT. ALL DICK QUESTIONS. ONLY DICK QUESTIONS.

>> OKAY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO ASK NOW.

>> COOL.

>> NICO, WE SAW ANGELINA COME ON THE SHOW, I'M WONDERING IF YOU COULD GET YOUR “YOUNGER” CO-STARS ON THE SHOW?

>> I WOULD LOVE TO. YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW HOW WILD THEY ARE. HILLARY HAS A LOT OF TATTOOS. I DON'T -- SHE'S ABOUT TO POP OUT A BABY. SO I DON'T KNOW.

>> MAYBE AFTER.

>> IF COMING OUT ON THIS SHOW IS NEXT ON THE LIST.

>> I DON'T KNOW. A LOT OF THE PEOPLE ON THE SHOW HAVE BEEN WORKING IN TELEVISION FOR SO LONG. THEY DON'T WANT TO COME DO A TATTOO CRAZY SHOW. MAYBE MOLLY.

>> SNOOKI GOING TO BE THERE?

>> WE'LL SEE. FINGERS CROSSED.

>> GREAT QUESTION.

>> DEBI MAZAR.

>> FANTASTIC. TWO MORE QUESTIONS.

>> HI. I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM TATTOO OR ONE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT RECENTLY THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO PUT ON YOU?

>> MA'AM?

>> I WANT SOMETHING ON MY LEG THAT REPRESENTS ME AS A MOTHER AND MY FAMILY. I'M ALL ABOUT MY MOMMY TATTOOS NOW. I WANT SOMETHING ON MY LEG. I THINK THAT'S HOT. OBVIOUSLY TO REPRESENT, YOU KNOW, MY KIDS. BUT I'M NOT SURE WHAT YET.

>> I WILL BE COVERED PRETTY SOON.

>> YOU'RE ALREADY COVERED.

>> I WILL START WORKING ON FULL LEG SLEEVES. I WANT TO DO ONE ABOUT MY JOURNEYS IN THE JUNGLE.

>> WILD.

>> OF ALL THE STUFF YOU GOT, WHICH ONE FELT LIKE IT TOOK THE LONGEST OR HURT THE MOST?

>> MY RIBS. ALL SINGLE NEEDLE ON MY RIBS. TERRIBLE.

>> STILL NO REGRETS.

>> NO REGRETS.

>> HOW MANY MORE WE GOT? ONE MORE. ONE MORE QUESTION IN THE FRONT.

>> HI GUYS! MICHAEL DAVID.

>> YOUR MAKEUP IS ON POINT.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. BOTH OF YOUR OUTFITS ARE ON POINT. CONGRATULATIONS ON "HOW FAR IS TATTOO FAR." SNOOKI, I HAVE TO SAY I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS SINCE I WAS A CHILD. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. LOVE YOU.

>> LOVE YOU.

>> MY QUESTION IS FOR BOTH OF YOU. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT NEXT FROM "HOW FAR IS TATTOO FAR" AS WELL AS "JERSEY SHORE"?

>> TAKE ON JERSEY.

>> YEAH. JERSEY, WE'RE NOT DONE SHOOTING YET. WE'RE SHOOTING MIKE'S WEDDING SOON. THAT'S IT. BUT WE JUST GOT BACK FROM A LITTLE TRIP. SO YOU GUYS HAVE A LOT IN STORE. I THINK THEY'LL AIR US BACK IN JERSEY, DOWN THE SHORE, THEN OUR TRIP, AND MIKE'S WEDDING. YOU HAVE A LOT TO CATCH UP ON. ITS NOT OVER YET! AND TATTOO, WE HAVE A LOT MORE EPISODES TO SHOW. A LOT MORE SHIT SHOWS.

>> THERE'S SO MUCH THAT HAPPENS. WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING.

>> NO.

>> BUT WE WERE THERE.

>> MM-HMM.

>> YEAH.

>> I FEEL LIKE SEASON TWO, WHEN -- IF AND WHEN IT HAPPENS, IT WILL BE BONKERS.

>> YEAH.

>> NOW EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT IT'S LIKE.

>> YEAH.

>> BUT JUST FINGERS CROSSED WE GET SOME MORE REALLY SOLID, BEAUTIFUL STORIES.

>> YEAH. WE HAVE NOT SEEN THAT PLAYED OUT ON THE SHOW YET. I DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS.

>> OR CRAZY REVENGE ONES.

>> YOU CAN TAKE THOSE.

>> WOULD YOU GUYS -- YOU DO SOMETHING SWEET. YOU ALREADY HAVE IN YOUR HEAD WHAT YOU WOULD DO FOR THE OTHER PERSON?

>> THEY WANTED US TO TATTOO EACH OTHER.

>> I'M SURE IT WILL HAPPEN AT SOME POINT.

>> ON THE SEASON. BUT MY MOTHER-IN-LAW DOESN'T WANT ME TO GET ANYMORE TATTOOS. SO I HAVE TO APPROVE IT WITH THE FAMILY. I WANT SOMETHING ON MY LEG. HE KNOWS WHAT I WANT. I FEEL LIKE WE WOULD PLAY IT UP LIKE WE'RE GIVING EACH OTHER TERRIBLE TATTOOS, BUT AT THE END IT WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL.

>> EXACTLY. YOU WOULD GIVE ME A BEAUTIFUL TATTOO. YOU WOULD NEVER --

>> I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO YOU. I FEEL LIKE WOULD DO IT TO ME.

>> I WOULDN'T. MAYBE I WOULD PUT A LITTLE SOMETHING.

>> DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH YOU HAD TO DRINK.

>> SAME. IF IT WAS NICOLE, SNOOKI OR DREN.

>> I LIKE THE IDEA OF NICO GOING TO YOUR FAMILY, GETTING THE APPROVAL.

>> GETTING THE APPROVAL FROM JIONNI.

>> THIS IS WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

>> LIKE A MEETING.

>> MAYBE IT'S TIME TO GET ANOTHER INK.

>> ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE TO WRAP THINGS UP. MY GOD, YOU GUYS, IT'S ALWAYS SO MUCH FUN WHEN YOU HANG OUT WITH US. THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN FOR BEING HERE. CONGRATS ON THIS AMAZING SHOW. "HOW FAR IS TATTOO FAR" AIRS THURSDAYS AT 9:00 P.M. ON MTV. OBVIOUSLY THE BEST IS YET TO COME. IT'S ALREADY BEEN SO INCREDIBLE. KEEP WATCHING AND TUNING IN. ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO TELL THE PEOPLE?
