Team building went left, again.
“Black Ink Crew” is known for having controversial moments. And the recent episode had a lot of fans debating on social media. On the episode, the crew learned one of their clients wasn’t happy about how the tattoo competition turned out. The men and women competed. Both groups of artists were tasked to do tattoos based on outer space. Two black women had their own vision for what they wanted the tattoos to look like. One woman wanted a galaxy. She also said that she wanted the galaxy to be in full color. Young Bae was tasked to provide the consultation for the client.
Bae expressed concern about doing a full-color tattoo on the client. She worried that certain colors would fade faster on the client’s darker skin tone. Bae even questioned why another artist previously tattooed the client using red. In Bae’s opinion, this wasn’t a good move.
A client called out Young Bae.
After the client said that Bae and the others weren’t going along with her vision, Vanity stepped in. And she suggested that instead of a full-color tattoo, they do a color splash instead.
Although the client said she loved her tattoo in the end, what she didn’t like was the experience. So she complained to Puma. And she said Bae was the one that caused it all to go left. In the client’s opinion, it was Bae who set the tone. And she made the client feel like the message was her skin was too dark to get all the colors she wanted.
Well, Puma felt Bae didn’t handle the situation in the best way. And he attempted to explain why she was insensitive, even though that wasn’t her intention.
Some fans have been calling Puma out about this on social media. So he responded.
