When the Black Ink Crew returns, the group is determined to put the importance on family, friendships and careers as they recover from the volatility and emotions of their last encounter with one another - an encounter that threatened to tear alliances apart for good. The crew will surprise and shock as they make choices that will change their lives, but also challenges them to reevaluate the importance of the relationships they have built. With all these changes in the wind, what will the future bring for our crew?
Some of clients are interesting, but there usually isn't enough focus on them and/or their personal stories to make them stand out. Despite some references about the tattoo parlor's role in the African-American community, the show doesn't delve into this, either. Overall, its the cast's constant bickering and flirtations that make the show mildly entertaining.--Melissa Camacho, Common Sense Media
