Draya will soon meet her father.

Prince and Don catch up. Both men are frustrated for different reasons. Don is still trying to get on the same page as his daughter’s mother. As for Prince, recently his car was stolen. And the tattoo equipment inside of it was taken, too. 

Draya’s father contacts her. He sends her a text asking if they can finally meet. She later asks Prince to come with her because she’s really nervous. He will have her back. 

Ryan explains his choice to cut Van out of his life.

Missy Kitty makes a grand return to 9 Mag. She reveals she’s decided to be an apprentice. The plan is still to open up her own tattoo shop. But she really wants to make sure she understands what she is doing to ensure success. 

Don and Ryan discuss Don’s recent trip to Dallas. Of course, Don tells Ryan that he and Phor hung out with Van. Ryan says he’s not going to get in the way of Don and Van being cool. But he has no desire to speak to Van ever again. Van did a tattoo for a client that resulted in a lawsuit that Ryan had to pay for. This situation got in the way of Ryan trying to buy a house for himself and his kids. He accuses Van of not even trying to make any type of payment. And this didn’t sit well with Ryan. 

Van and Ryan will probably never be friends again.

Ryan and Van end up coming face to face after Don invites Van to hang out with the guys. Van asks Ryan why they no longer speak. And Ryan and Don tell Van that being stuck with Van’s lawsuit is the issue. Ryan had to pay for it. The disgruntled customer sued for $600,000. Ryan wasn’t able to fight it out in court because no one notified him of the lawsuit until the court date had already been missed.

Van says he had no idea that Ryan paid the debt. And he apologizes to Ryan for all of the drama he’s put him through over the years. Ryan appreciates the apology. However, he has no interest in allowing Van back into his life.

    If I had to pay Van’s debt, I wouldn’t be friends neither.

    There would be NO way that we could ever discuss being friends until Van made it right by paying the lawsuit fine! Van knows that he jacked up that tattoo,and he needs to make things right! Ryan shouldnt have to take the hit for Van! Do right by Ryan,VAN!!!!!!!
