Whether it’s ”Black Ink Crew: New York” or ”Black Ink Crew: Chicago,” each show is guaranteed to have drama and friends falling out. Over the season, viewers saw the friendship of Ryan Henry and Van Johnson go from good friends to being enemies. The same goes for Ryan and Ceaser Emanuel.
Ryan and Van have had an up and down relationship, mainly over a lack of respect and loyalty, amongst other issues. These issues eventually led Ryan to fire Van from the ”9 Mag” tattoo shop. On the most recent season of ”Black Ink Crew: Chicago,” we saw Ryan and Van being cordial as they came together for Van’s daughter’s 18th birthday party. However, when it comes to Ryan and Ceaser, that’s a different story.
These men fell out after Ryan started dating Miss Kitty, which is Ceaser’s ex-girlfriend. It also didn’t help Ryan lied to Ceaser about the situation.
In a more recent episode, the two men almost came to blows while enjoying a night out in Indianapolis.
Black Ink castmates have been in the headlines more than ever after Ryan’s best friend outed him for messing with his child’s mother behind his back.
Currently, Van announced that he was approved for property in Houston and he announced on Instagram that he and Ceaser would be opening Black Ink Houston. Ceasar liked the post and even stepped into The Shade Room to say, “ I told ya’ll 50 states. BLACK INK HOUSTON COMING SOON!!!!”
