‘Black Ink Crew: Chicago’ is hot on our heels with a third season, packed with everything the squad does best, amplified. This season is nothing short of dramatic, sexy, and of course, tattoos.
Black Ink Crew documents the lives of a group of tattoo artists and friends dedicated to their work, and finding ways to make a name for themselves through their art in the hustle and bustle of Chicago. On that journey, they’re faced with challenges that redefine their friendships, individuality and their lives as they immerse themselves in the tattoo industry.
The third season sees us following Ryan Henry, owner 9 Mag and his rocky relationship with the shop’s staff members as the sense of growing hostility and disrespect creeps into their lives at work. As a result, Ryan makes the tough decision to restore order at 9 Mag by letting go of Danielle, and sifting through who he can trust carefully. These decisions leave the question of loyalty to the crew on Ryan’s part in question. Kat’s departure from Chicago to establish herself as a big name tattoo artist in Hollywood is bittersweet, with her career taking a beautiful turn while the 9 Mag family seems to be falling apart in her absence.
With questions of unity and the journey to success at the forefront, there’s no doubt this season of ‘Black Ink Crew: Chicago’ carries through the heat of theatrics, trust, and hustle under the umbrella of loyalty and family.
