Ohana means family, and as long as Kat is 9 Mag, the shop will make sure she doesn’t get left behind or forgotten by Ryan.
In the Black Ink Crew: Chicago sneak peek, an annoyed Ryan comes to the shop to ask 9 Mag why Kat was there. It’s bad enough that they were sneaking behind his back, but he found out about the betrayal through an Instagram post. Katrina’s been gang but now that her business with Ryan is out, all of a sudden the rules have changed. There is no way Rachel will be cool with Katrina still working in the shop but no one else is trying to hear it. It makes sense why Ryan wants to save face but there’s nothing that can be done. Kat is family and all but they have Ryan f—d up. According to him, she has no booth, she can’t tattoo there, and there is no further discussion to be had. Ryan hears everyone but at the end of the day, he is the owner and can make everyone leave if they continue this. Voices rise and Van starts to hulk out so there’s a pretty good chance this won’t end well.
Guess we’ll have to watch an all new Black Ink Crew: Chicago next Wednesday at 9/8c to find out!
