"Black Ink Crew" (TV show) on VH1 is a reality docu-series that follows the girls and guys that run the black-owned-and-operated titular tattoo shop on 113th and Lennox, right in the heart of New York City's Harlem. 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. Black Ink is more than just a tattoo shop to the people who work there.

The shop is also a magnet for hip-hop stars and athletes, but the real flavor comes from the quite colorful characters that 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 and, most of all, loveable. This hour-long docu-series follows the lives of Ceasar, Dutchess, Alex, Sassy, Puma, and O' Sh!t, as they work, live, party, and hang out in Harlem. The series explores the friendships, crushes, rivalries and craziness that comes when a group of friends become family.

Season 2



Back for a second season, the crew is leaving its indelible mark in the heart of Harlem. With the shop's newfound success, stress levels are through the roof. Self-proclaimed "power couple" Dutchess and Ceaser make their relationship visibly permanent with matching "King" and "Queen" tattoos, while Cease and Puma's 15-year friendship fades away. O'S**t's court visit sparks terrifying tempers at an all-too-real family gathering where both promises and tables are broken. Alex and her opinions are back and bringing the feistiness despite creating even more friction amongst members of the crew. The struggles of running a business intensify when drama is part of everyday shop life. As boundaries are overstepped, rumors fly and arguments erupt, this season is sure to show that family, romance and ink aren't equally everlasting.

Season 3

The gang is all back together for season three. With friendships rekindled and a chance for new beginnings, will this new found truce last?

Ceaser, Dutchess, Puma, Sassy, O'Sh*t, Sky, Ted and Walt are ready to overcome their differences and move on stronger than ever, but the past has a way of providing a serious reality check. As Ceaser focuses on expanding the Black Ink brand and renovating the shop, O'Sh*t has an open trial looming in the distance and another new baby on the way. Dutchess is focusing on herself after her break up with Ceaser by creating amazing tattoos and growing her reputation in the modeling world. Puma and Sassy continue to work to build rival tattoo shop, Ink 124. Ted, Walt and Sky bring their signature shenanigans to the shop with plenty of laughs and larger-than-life personalities.

The doors of Black Ink welcome a new apprentice, Donna, and while it's never easy to be the new girl, she quickly proves she isn't afraid to speak her mind and get her ink on. When a "Mixxxy" party takes a turn for the worse, the crew finds themselves in a dangerous feud that could put an end to the Black Ink world forever.

Season 3B

Picking up right after the fight at the fashion show, Puma begins to realize his actions that night will have dramatic consequences. Dutchess contemplates a move back down to North Carolina, to put her focus on family life and her engagement to Ceaser, but Ceaser struggles with the idea of leaving New York. Meanwhile, Sky confronts a past decision that has been tormenting her for years on end. As the crew handles business, Donna strives to gain recognition for her artistry by challenging Ceaser, causing a rift within the group. With all this uncertainty in the air, what will the future bring for VH1's Harlem tattoo artists?

Season 4

Expect some epic next-level events this season including two new shops, out of this world tattoos and three new artists who bring a fresh new vibe to the scene. The gang juggles relationships, family, and past rivalries while embarking on quests to build upon their successes.

Shop owner Ceaser contemplates opening a new shop on 125th Street to further expand his Harlem reign of the Black Ink brand. His legacy is in the city where he's striving for moguldom, but his heart is with his long distance fiancée Dutchess, who's working to open a shop of her own in North Carolina. She's determined to start her tattoo art empire - but will she be able to cut ties with Black Ink for good? And will Ceaser continue to pursue his professional goals or will his heart lead the way?

O'Sh**t works hard to maintain his sobriety and stay on the straight and narrow. But when Kathie solicits the court for child support, his inner demons creep back, causing him to fall off the wagon. Meanwhile, Sky finally gets the Brazilian butt lift she's been obsessing about for years but her hope to begin life anew ultimately fades as serious issues from her past become impossible to ignore.

Ted now finds himself second in charge and takes his newfound responsibility seriously - sometimes to a fault. Black Ink's apprentice, Donna is eager to hold her own and become a bonafide tattoo artist, until a shocking hook-up on an all-girls trip to Miami derails her ambitions and the tension between her and the crew spirals out of control.

When the mother of his kids takes a job in another city, Walt unexpectedly finds himself stepping up his daddy duties. When placed in a position to have to explain the birds and the bees, this new level of responsibility might prove to be more than he was ready for.

This season, the shop also adds a striking new artist named Melody who brings a very interesting following of clients and vitality with her. After overcoming the struggles of a bi-racial childhood as well as a checkered past of her own, Melody might be the catalyst to a more enlightened and renewed energy in the shop.

Ceaser's greatest rival and ex-Black Ink employee Puma is positioning himself as fierce competition after opening his new tattoo shop, "Art2Ink." New to the Art2Ink team are close friends and talented tattoo artists Naeem and Phoenix, who each have well-known reputations and families to support. But when a shocking shooting occurs at the shop, Puma struggles to hold onto his family as well as his new talent.

Can both shops handle the pressure or is there room for only one crew to succeed in Harlem?

"Black Ink Crew" is executive produced by Dan Cesareo, Doug DePriest and Ken Martinez for Big Fish Entertainment. Executive producers for VH1 are Shelly Tatro, Kari Mcfarland, Rick Hankey and Jeff Olde.
