Series concept and production info
Black Ink Crew: Chicago is a new American reality series that follows the daily life of a tattoo shop owned and operated by an African-Americans crew, and broadcast on VH1 since 2015. The series is a spin-off from Black Ink Crew, a successful reality series set in New York City`s Harlem. It is co-produced by Big Fish Entertainment and VH1 Productions, and its current second season kicked off on October 3, 2016.
9Mag, a tattoo shop in Chicago, was set up by Ryan in the wake of a tragedy – the death of his sister and little niece – in his sister`s honor. As the main characters gather in the shop to work, flirt, and party after hours, there are challenges to deal with, both personal and professional. The 9Mag shop is rising to fame before our eyes, with their top-notch professional skills and personal charisma. Most of the action, however, comes from the relationships, mostly short-term, flickering right in front of the camera, and the fights that ensue when they flare up on someone else`s territory. The cast is completely outspoken, with bleeping taking up a considerable amount of time and fights every so often ready to get to the physical stage.
Current season and future prospects
The featured tattoo artists Kat, Van and Phor along with Phor`s assistant and younger brother Don, manager Charmaine and receptionist Danielle are the close-knit crew of Ryan`s 9Mag tattoo shop. The current second season debuted with two back-to-back episodes that portray intricate tattoo projects and personal relationships that are even more complex. Kat quit the shop, another tattoo artist is hired, Don takes a paternity test in order to clear his name, and the crew is in the midst of another round of drama. Black Ink Crew: Chicago is holding up an impressive and steady average of 1.5 million viewers, which is not a significant decline from the freshman season’s whopping 1.75 million viewer average, so we think that the show has excellent chances of being renewed for another chapter.
