Greenlit: Black Ink, VH1

Black Ink  w/t –  Located in the middle of Harlem on 113th and Lennox Avenue, Black Ink is one of the few black-owned and operated tattoo parlors in New York City.  It’s a magnet for hip hop stars both old school and new (Cam’ron, Jadakiss, Jim Jones, Asap Rocky, Corey Gunz) as well as pro athletes (Amare Stoudamire, C.C. Sabathia, Stephon Marbury, Brandon Spikes), video vixens and a who’s who of urban elite (Tyson Beckford,  Keri Hilson).  The employees are a tight but totally dysfunctional “family.”  For many of them, this shop is the key to turning around their lives and for some of them it’s their first legitimate job off the streets.  But can they survive all of the drama that is part of everyday life at the shop?
