Cease can have Harlem and even Atlanta, but Chicago is off limits and Ryan Henry makes that very clear.
In this Black Ink Crew: Chicago sneak, Ryan is happily swamped at a tattoo convention with customers just waiting to get an offish 9 Mag tattoo. He spots Ceaser from the New York franchise and notices he has Chicago on his list of Black Ink city takeovers. Harlem is a given, Atlanta is a new development, Orlando is looking good, but Chicago is already held down by 9 Mag. Ryan respects Cease’s hustle but needs him to know Chi-Town is taken care of. Ceaser jokingly asks about 9 Mag saying everything’s for sale but Ryan is like, not tuh-day. In a plot twist, ex-employee Cobra pulls up and Ryan has a look on his face, wondering TF why.
