Thank goodness the tattoo-a-thon did well enough for Ceaser to not only send Young Bae to Korea to search for her mom, but also to send a few other members of the Black Ink Crew family with her on this emotional trip.
The trip to Bae’s hometown of Seoul, South Korea has been a wild ride. From Donna trying to rescue an octopus in a food market to Sky getting upset because she thought Ted and Kit were getting too close there have been a lot of highs and lows on this trip. But the most devastating moment was Young Bae taking her friends to the abandoned shipping container that she lived in with her mom and sister as a teen when they tried to flee her abusive father. Hoping that her mom might be hiding out in the place they called home for two years, Bae understandably gets emotional about returning to a place that has so many memories and the fact that her mom is not there. Her friends don’t know what to say because despite their own experiences living in places that are less than ideal, they can’t imagine having to live like this. While they don’t know what to say, at least they’re there for Bae to support her though this tough time.
