Black Ink Crew: Chicago is known for bringing more than enough drama to our TVs. It seems like the reality show focuses on more drama than they do tattoos. Recently, tragedy hit close to the cast of the show, bringing old foes together. Then, within weeks, one cast member’s baby news shed light on the group’s dark grief. Find out who’s pregnant and watch the ultrasound video at the end of the article!
Last season, it seemed as though the cast Black Ink Crew: Chicago fell out for good. After a rumor too tumultuous for VIP concierge Charmaine’s relationship, her job at 9MAG came to an end. Ryan’s snake-like moves forced old 9MAG artists Van and Lily to part ways, leaving Phor and his brother, shop manager, Don, to remain in Ryan’s now small circle.
According to each cast member’s Instagram page, the former gang is doing quite well. Ryan is continuing to build his 9Mag brand with Phor and Don are in his good graces. Charmaine has moved on to bigger and better things all-the-while planning for her wedding with fiancé, Neek Bey.
The only two cast members that won’t be returning are Van and Lily. But according to their social media, both tattoo artists are doing well. Van is on a tattoo tour, giving fans “#ColdasIceTattoos,” while Lily is slinging her eyelashes brand, Mala Vida Beauty.
The new season starts soon and just recently, VH1 released the new season’s super trailer. In the teaser, life goes on for Charmaine, who partnered with Jess, a tattoo artist from London, on a new tattoo shop, 2nd City Ink. The news of Charmaine’s new shop shakes sh*t up for Ryan over at 9MAG, but he’s so busy that he only has time to laugh at the idea.
The head honcho also addresses rumors about alleged relations with Black Ink Crew: New York‘s Ms. Kitty. If you recall, in Black Ink Crew: New York‘s last season that just ended, Ms. Kitty, who’s had an on-again-off-again relationship with Caesar, was accused of sleeping with Ryan. She repeatedly denied it, but her cast mates/former friends weren’t buying it. Now, she will appear on the Chicago show to hopefully put the rumor to bed.
With all the drama that the Black Ink Crew brings, recent good news of a new baby has outshined the chaos…
