Dave Navarro is no stranger to reality TV shows. After all, who can forget MTV’s ‘Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave’ with then-fiance Carmen Electra, CBS’ ‘Rock Star: Supernova’ and ‘Rock Star: INXS?’ Now, Navarro is back in the reality TV game, as Spike TV has confirmed the tattooed guitarist of Jane’s Addiction will host, ‘Ink Master,’ the first-ever tattoo competition television series.

The show will premiere on Spike in January, 2012.

“Dave Navarro is known worldwide for his musical talents, but he’s also well-known within in the tattoo community for his incredible body art,” said Sharon Levy, Spike TV’s executive vice president, in a release. “Dave’s ultimate respect for the art and culture of tattooing makes him perfect for this series.”

On top of hosting ‘InkMaster,’ Navarro also will aid in judging the ink contest alongside tattoo authorities Chris Nunez (‘Miami Ink’) and Oliver Peck, the owner of Dallas’ Elm Street Tattoo.

The winner of ‘InkMaster’ will win a $100,000 cash prize and a feature in ‘Inked’ magazine, the preeminent magazine covering tattoo culture, art, music and fashion. Not to shabby!
