Rumble & Hum
Meet some of South Africa’s best tattoo and piercing artists, as they complete a variety of ambitious and unusual projects every day.
S01:E01 - Stain, Steel and Style
Starting a brand baby, starting a brand. The new Rumble & Hum tattoo shop is introduced at a launch event as we meet the characters and VIP clientele that frequent the tattoo studio, from local celebrities, to bikers, to fitness models. We also get a glimpse into the life of the tattoo shop owner Vudulew’s love for anything that goes bang.
S01:E02 - Mi Familia
It’s all about family for the Rumble & Hum team, as Cole and his fiancée goes hunting for wedding venues, Adrianne goes on a blind date with a guy she met online and we meet the real boss of the shop, Lew’s wife, Liane. Lew also gets a tarot reading from a client that probably changes his and the shop’s future without him actually realising it.
S01:E03 - Life Is Not Just a Game
Lew heads to the biggest gaming expo in South Africa as he takes viewers through the life of one of the country's most renowned Esports shoutcasters. Lew also completes a lion sleeve tattoo on one of the pro-gamers, Adrianne breaks her foot and Cole starts to feel the pressure of his upcoming nuptials as well as running the shop in Lew’s absence.
S01:E04 - Weightless & Free-Spirited
Lew tries to convince the Rumble & Hum team to cut down on their junk food intake in order to shed some pounds, Cole starts off a perky Mandala-inspired tattoo and Lew gets given a remarkable gift from a client. Lew also takes up some advice and spends time with the family.
S01:E05 - Models Schmodels
Lew does a cover up on a client as she shares her near-death experience at the hands of hijackers. Lew also gets some disturbing news about his own health. Cole has a valuable look into marriage whilst starting a cover-up on his minister, contrary to the laughs that ensue when Lew gets his kneecap tattoed.
S01:E06 - In Sickness and in Health
Lew is diagnosed with a rare yet serious illness that could spell the end of Rumble & Hum, especially after the shop is taken over by a musicvideo crew. Cole’s wedding day finally arrives and Adrianne tries to avoid getting disowned by her family as she tries to hide a tattoo from her parents.
S01:E07 - Image Is Everything
Adrianne goes on an unconventional date as well as starting to tattoo a few clients in preparation for her qualifying as a fully fledged tattoo artist. Rumble and Hum Image Agency is born and blood is spilled as the Rumble & Hum team interviews a candidate for the new hairstylist position.
S01:E08 - Shot Through the Heart
Lew tries to lift Adrianne’s spirit by taking her to blow off some steam. He also gets the tables turned on himself as his crippling fear for spiders are exploited by the Rumble & Hum team, too such an extend that not even a pilates session can realign his physique.
S01:E09 - Master of Watercolour
Lew finally gives into Liane’s demands and sees the Rumble & Hum coffee bar become a reality. The watercolour-expert Cole stumbles into a favourable tattoo challenge with Lew the portrait-god that will see the loser walk away without any dignity or body-hair in tact.
S01:E10 - All's Well
The day has finally arrived for Adrianne to step-up and become a quaified tattoo artist. The team briefly looks back at the last few weeks and cherish everything that Rumble & Hum and its staff have accomplished, just before life intervenes and takes everything away again.
