Black Ink Crew is set in Harlem, New York. And since the show aired, tattoo shop owner Ceaser has expanded the business. In this season, he opened his second shop on 125th Street. (The original on 113rd Street is still open.) After the success of Black Ink Crew, VH1 branched out with Black Ink Crew: Chicago which is set in Ryan Henry’s 9 Mag tattoo shop. Now, the network is looking for another tattoo shop for a new reality TV show.
If you work in a tattoo shop like Black Ink and want to become a reality TV star, VH1 wants to hear from you.
