The fifth season of VH1’s hit series, Black Ink: Chicago just premiered a few days ago and people cannot quit raving over the ambitious group of artists at 9Mag Tattoo. We sat down with the owner of 9Mag Tattoo Shop, Ryan Henry who shares the details on his new shop and what you can expect to see on the show’s fifth season.

Tell us about the new season of Black Ink Chicago. How was the experience for you?

Well, reality television is like no other. We put our lives out there for everyone to see. Its definitely been quite an experience but I have a lot of love for the fans and they’re the reason we’re able to come back for more seasons.

What can viewers expect to see in the fifth season?

A fifth season is a blessing. It’s a blessing to have the supporters that we do. This season you’ll see the back end of what we all go through.

Tell us about your new tattoo shop, 9Mag Tattoo.

9Mag Tattoo is a blessing for all my supporters. I created the shop which will have its grand opening on Saturday, January 5th. I’m excited about it and all the blessings that will come in the new year.

Are there any upcoming projects you can tell us about? What can we expect to see from Ryan Henry in the future?

As 9Mag Tattoo progresses in its new location (Chicago), I hope to be able to expand towards the end of 2019. In addition, I am working on a foundation titled, 9Mag Foundation which will provide for less fortunate families and the homeless.

Be sure to tune into the fifth season of Black Ink Chicago on Wednesdays at 9PM!
