‘Black Ink Crew’ Stars Ceaser and Van Give a First Look at Their New Houston Tattoo Shop

Ceaser and Ryan fell out amid the rumors regarding Miss Kitty.

Black Ink Crew” star Ceaser had a very good relationship with Ryan. In fact, he would often give the “Black Ink Crew Chicago” star advice about running 9Mag. Cease understood very well how stressful it could be. And just like Cease, Ryan has had to part ways with employees and old friends. So the two men were able to remain on good terms as they shared similar experiences as business owners in two different cities.

Interestingly enough, all of that changed after the recent season of the New York show.

Cease was told that Ryan and Miss Kitty allegedly hooked up. The rumor didn’t sit well with Cease. In fact, he felt as if the alleged situation was nothing more than a betrayal. Although things ended with Kitty romantically seasons ago, Cease felt that there are still lines that people shouldn’t cross.

Ceaser and Van share similar opinions about Ryan.

As for Kitty, she denied that there was any truth to the rumor. Regardless, Cease still decided to fire her.

However, Kitty was able to find a new job at Charmaine’s new tattoo shop, 2nd City Ink.

When it comes to the rumors about Ryan and Kitty, Cease isn’t the only one who was very opinionated. Van felt like Ryan was out of line, too. Now he and Cease are opening up a new tattoo shop in Houston. And they recently gave their followers the very first look.

    This BRO-MANCE is not going to last long. Is this some get-back at Ryan 🤔? Ryan does not care. Why can’t these two clowns get that? Ceaser never really had Kitty because he still hadn’t swept the dirt(Dutchess)off of his porch. How soon did he forget that Kitty had to step out of her cool to confront Dutchess who sprayed mace and then ran into a room and locked the door. Punks jump up to get beat down on any day.
    Then Van lying on ‘the gram’ I believe about being married to Jen. What was that for 🤨? Did he need attention that much? Jen cleaned 🧽 that up real quick with some bleach and said they weren’t married.
    They need to leave Ryan alone because that brother hasn’t said anything about them since the last show.
    Time to be business men and step out of the tighty-whiteys…be on some grown men sh-t.

      Van and Cease are friends and have been friends for years. They have always talked about working together. And they are allowed to. They are being businessmen by OPENING UP A NEW BUSINESS. Tell Ryan to get on his grown man sh-t and stop allowing his d-ck to cause problems in his family. What he did to his best friend was evil. But you’ll stay silent about that and keep rehashing fake storylines instead. Ma’am how did you not know that whole scene with Dutchess and Kitty was fake? Kitty was sprayed in the face with WATER. There is no way Kitty would be able to see and function if she was actually sprayed in the face with pepper spray. You can’t even smell that stuff without breaking down. That should have been the moment when you realized this franchise is fake. It’s crazy how adults keep getting swindled by fake storylines and a show that has producers doing voiceovers all the time. Anyway, get your money black men (if this isn’t also fake and part of a storyline).

        Yep. A couple of years ago Kitty even said that her relationship with Cease was fake and just for the show. They’ve never dated. And they’ve never even slept together. I found it on here:


        She never messed around with Ryan either. It was just a storyline to get the Chicago and NY show to have crossover episodes. In real life, Ryan was actually sleeping with his best friend’s baby momma at the time they said he was messing with Kitty. And he was trying to get back with Rachel too in the same timeframe.

        The whole show is fake. People stay coming for Dutchess but she told everyone years ago that this show is very fake and she tried to talk Cease into leaving so he could stop selling his soul. He refused and that’s the real reason they broke up. She wanted to move on and he wanted to stay on TV. These people are selling their souls for some VH1 peanuts. Kitty too because she really went along with these storylines that make her look awful for a little fame and paycheck. Sis is educated but fighting on TV for a little cash. She said she didn’t like how she’s being portrayed but she can’t leave because she’s stuck in a contract. It’s sad. I’m proud of Dutchess for finally walking away and becoming a businesswoman.

          Dutchess was very smart to get out when she did. I do not understand how any smart adult thinks any of these Black Ink shows are all real. These people even label themselves as “actors” now. They aren’t hiding the fact that it’s fake anymore. People have to use their common sense.

      Casear is not a smart business man, 🤣🤣 especially for hiring Van with his f-ck.up tattoos..trying to get back at Ryan who really don’t give a dam about neither. all that money he put in Miami shop and it failed, the other shop in NY fail. stop already and just already…borrowing money to pay just to keep shops open. just stay in NY, you’re not a corporatation..i am team Ryan He is a smart business man regardless of his personal sh-t and he can tattoo. people mad at him but that women just as or more guilty than Ryan. Dumba-s women fall his looks everytime, 😂😂😭 they know what he about. Ryan is going to be settling with no one but Racheal, bottom line

        Ryan is not a smart businessman either. Y’all just hype him up because of what he looks like. He’s another Cease, another reality star pretending to be some smart businessman when the biggest check is the one he gets from Viacom. Charmaine let the cat out the bag and confirmed Ryan doesn’t even own the shop he films the show out of, production does. And while women are foolish to deal with him, he’s foolish too because all his promiscuity has done in his life is cause problems and ruin his personal relationships. Rachel does not want Ryan. She’s not an idiot, and knows who he really is and he’s not the relationship type. Since she has her own successful business, she doesn’t need to be with him ever again. She’s a smart cookie. Women always do better when they get their own money.

          I agree. If Ryan was such a great businessman, he wouldn’t be on Black Ink Crew in the first place. These shows aren’t a good look for anyone. As far as this so called new shop goes, it’s probably just another fake storyline for the show.

        Who the h-ll is getting tattoos during a pandemic, and he always go to these cities with a foul a-s attitude,all of them are fake, that whole show here in Atlanta was fake, Sky did not own that house, she rented it and the owner sued, Sky and Ceasar, plus the production, Sky was not supposed to be filming there, the owner stated that they damaged his home. She looks lost the shop because she wasn’t paying rent. And Ceasar new girlfriend said she helped him with his bad credit, he couldn’t even buy a home until they got together, but he got all these shows and shops

        I respect Ryan because it seems that he won’t just do anything for a storyline. He won’t sacrifice his family or his brand. Everybody else, they thirsty for tv and followers. Caesars baby mama even came in there trying to be messy and ratchet. Ryan has always conducted himself with class and Rachel is the epitome of class. A pure example that you don’t have to sell your to be famous.

          Huh? Yes, Ryan does do anything for a storyline. Did you forget that Kat situation? Was it classy for Ryan to have a storyline about him sleeping with his employee? And is it classy that the last time he was on the blogs it was because he slept with his best friend’s baby momma while that man was battling cancer? He’s the Godfather to that man’s son. How is that taking care of his family and brand? You have low standards if you think that man is classy. As always, y’all overhype him because he’s attractive. I wish y’all weren’t so superficial and easy to be misled.

            D-mn did Ryan hurt you? You on every comment move on with your life.

            Alicia, the last time I checked I was allowed to write comments on here like the rest of you. You wouldn’t have minded my comments if they weren’t critical of Ryan. Typical. Anyway, it’s ironic for you to tell me I need a life when you sat on here and read every single comment and responded to one of my mines two days later. I don’t think you’re the epitome of someone with a busier life, sis. Just say you like Ryan and you’re offended. At least then you’d be more direct and honest. Passive aggressiveness isn’t becoming.

    They are business men for the production co they don’t own sh-t and I can’t believe that cease as a business man that own all these tattoo shops don’t have credit.
