MTV TAPS "YOUNGER'S" NICO TORTORELLA AND "JERSEY SHORE FAMILY VACATION'S" NICOLE "SNOOKI" POLIZZI TO HOST "JUST TATTOO OF US" BASED ON THE HIT INTERNATIONAL FORMAT
NEW YORK, NY (August 9, 2018) - MTV today announced that "Younger's" Nico Tortorella and "Jersey Shore Family Vacation's" Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi will host "Just Tattoo of Us," a new U.S. series based on the hit MTV International format.
Produced by Big Fish Entertainment, "Just Tattoo of Us" puts relationships through the ultimate test 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.
Hosted by Tortorella and Polizzi, 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.
"Just Tattoo of Us" is the second MTV International-originated format to be localized by MTV in the US, following "Ex on the Beach."
Now in its third season and hosted by Charlotte Crosby and Scotty T, the original UK-produced series first aired on MTV International channels in April 2017 and is among the top-rated series on MTV Internationally.
MTV is the leading youth media brand inspired by music, in nearly 180 countries and 450 million homes around the world, connecting with over 350 million fans across all social media platforms.
