Black Ink Crew season 3, episode 1 airs tonight on VH1.
Ceaser focuses on the shop as Dutchess centers attention on her own life in the season 3 opener. Also: Quani informs Puma that she’s unhappy in their marriage.
Enter the world of the Black Ink Crew and meet the girls and guys that run the only Black-owned and operated tattoo parlor in the heart of Harlem at 113th Street and Lenox Avenue. The employees are a tight, but totally dysfunctional “family.” For many of them, this shop is the key to turning their lives around, and for some of them, it’s their first legitimate job off the streets. To the people who work there, Black Ink is more than just one of the most famous — and infamous — tattoo shops in the country… it’s home. The shop is also a magnet for hip-hop stars and athletes, but the real flavor comes from the quite colorful characters who walk into the shop on a daily basis. Inside the doors of Black Ink, you never know what you are going to get. From the sexy new girl on the block, Dutchess, to the party animal of the group, Puma, the characters are crazy, sexy, funny and, most of all, lovable. This hourlong docu-series follows the lives of Ceaser, Dutchess, Alex, Sassy, Puma, and O’ S**t, as they work, live, party and hang out in Harlem. Black Ink Crew explores the friendships, crushes, rivalries and craziness that comes when a group of friends become family.
Black Ink Crew season 3, episode 1 airs Jan. 26 at 9 p.m. EST on VH1.
