Rok and Krystal are ready to make things official. 

Teddy and Puma have a new assignment for the newbies. Everyone must pack their bags to head to Atlanta to compete in Miya Bailey’s shop. They are ready to prove themselves after the recent cuts. And Miya is a legend in the tattoo industry. 

Krystal surprises Rok with a candlelit apology. She tells him she’s sorry for sending mixed signals. But it’s him she can’t see herself without. So she asks him to marry her. And Rok says yes. 

The engagement news has Rok’s mother very concerned. 

Although Rok is excited to be engaged to Krystal, his mom isn’t enthusiastic about their latest news. She thinks they may have an unhealthy relationship because they are always breaking up and getting back together. Rok is disappointed by his mother’s concern, but he understands it. Krystal doesn’t have the best track record with him. But he does think she may have really changed this time because she actually apologized and proposed to him. He is usually the first one to reach out after a breakup. 

Miracle and Santana clash over a bedroom once the newbies make it to Atlanta. So Alex steps up to give Santana his room. And everyone is surprised to see him embrace being a leader in Puma and Teddy’s absence. 

AMH is called out.

Ahead of the pop-up shop at Miya’s, AMH and Jahnova can no longer contain their annoyance with Liza. They snap after she defends looking for clients on dating apps. AMH accuses her of using her looks to get ahead. And Liza just feels like AMH is being a very judgmental and fake friend. She can’t understand where all of this is coming from. 

Regardless, AMH refuses to take back what she said. She and Jahnova tell Liza that she’s the weakest link. And Liza vows to prove them both wrong. 

Miracle does a corset piercing for one of her clients. But AMH, Jahnova, and the others think she royally messed up the job. Regardless, the client is pleased with Miracle’s work. While Jahnova is in the corner snickering, AMH is very critical in front of Puma. Puma even tells her that she doesn’t have to be mean when she gives constructive feedback. And if the client is happy, you don’t degrade the artist within their hearing range. In a green screen interview, Liza says AMH has really been a mean girl lately and she’s not sure what’s behind the change.

  1. I agree Rok needs to tread cautiously. Krystal has some anger and jealousy issues which I agree with his Mom is toxic

    Whenever a person show you who they are , they can’t change that quickly. Krystal left the relationship to be with someone else then when if didn’t work out she comes back and expects things to go back to normal. Rok needs to take some time because Krystal is going to trip out, she seems to have violent tendencies.

  2. Alex and EQUANIMITY…I love it!
    Rok & Krystal…the jury is still out. They should get counseling first. Krystal has been hurt I feel.

  3. Krystal doesn’t love Rok. She just don’t want to see him with someone else. I knew a guy like that once. He said it was over and he didn’t love me anymore. So he broke up with me. Then as soon as I started seeing someone else, all of a sudden he couldn’t live without me. Listen to your Mom…don’t do it Rok! Don’t marry Krystal. She’s all over the place.

  4. Rok is giving me light skinned ASAP Rocky vibes! So handsome! 😍❤ BTW, he shouldn’t ring Krystal. She plays too many games. Listen to Mom please!

  5. Black ink crew LA I don’t blame Nelly I would only share it with Kat…Don’t trust the rest of them
