“Black Ink Crew Chicago” returned this month and things have been quite intense.

On the latest episode, 9Mag shop owner Ryan Henry’s beef with tattoo artist Van reached a new level when Ryan changed the locks to the shop. This happened after the two fought at 9Mag’s anniversary party.

Van ended up fighting his fellow artist JR at the shop after Van damaged the door, in an attempt to break into 9mag.

Despite this drama however, Ryan doesn’t thinks VH1 is showing his shop or “Black Ink Crew Chicago” enough love.

This is on the heels of Sky throwing her own shade at the show and Charmaine, and a dramatic slide in ratings.

    I mean Mona runs VH1. Everything else is a second, third, and fourth priority when it comes to promotion. I like this show though.

    His tweets are true. But they did the original show the same way. They won’t start promoting it until it blows up. That’s how all the networks do. They don’t want to waste too much money in a Netflix and cord cutting society.

    Black Ink Chicago is good as sh-t. Hell the franchise is better than all of Mona’s sh-t right now. LHH just got too damn fake.

    Junk food tv. That’s what’s on VH1 most of the time. Worthless nonsense and shenanigans. Smh ??‍♀️

    lol his show is just as fake and just as scripted that’s the pot calling the kettle black. Black Ink and 9″Mag need to get serious about their brand just Like Ari and Kat Von D did. They need to do more licensing deals, more tattoo conventions, festivals, all the show really is just drama. Which is the reason why the shows don’t seem real to me. They’re not trying to expand the brand as much as they are trying to party/turn up

    I actually believe the ratings are down this season is because all of the men have brought their significant others in the mix this season which probably reduced their female fan base.
