Meet Van, Black Ink Crew: Chicago‘s “Big Brother”

"My name is Van 'Cold as Ice Tattoos' Johnson."

Van confesses he suffered a lot growing up, but for him, his talent was a way out of the streets of Chi-town. Ryan’s former business rival, Van is the “big brother” of the 9Mag family and has the experience to hold it down for the Black Ink Crew: Chicago group. In this profile, he explains the hardships of growing up in Chicago, how he’s currently fighting a case right now and that he’s just trying to live an honest life doing what he does best.

Tune in next Monday at 9/8c to see more of Van and the crew!
