The City of Ink: REALITY TV Show?

Is America ready for a black tattoo reality show? We are black, even if we do tattoo ALL races of people at City of Ink would this help other tattoo artist of color? If we do sign the contracts, we promise to showcase our REAL lives. Alot of people and production companies have came to us with the TV idea, but its really hard to work with producers if they have no clue what that tattoo culture and lifestyle is about. And how can we sign to your netwerk if you have no idea what the City of Ink Movement is? We don't want a tattoo show based off the celebs we tattoo, we want to see and stories of everyday working class people. They get BETTER tattoos and have wayyyyy better tattoo ideas than rappers do....not dissing rappers, but just look at the type of ink they are getting these days...and look at the work the NBA player are getting, same ole shit from the 90's time to upgrade to fine art. Tattoos suppose to be timless not fads or trendy. If the money and FREEDOM is right, City of Ink will sign the deal.

Until then, all my City of Ink supporters WRITE & EMAIL: TBS, BET, MTV, VH-1, TLC, A&E, etc... and tell them it's time for more artist of color on TV...Props to Twig (Inked), Chris N. (Miami Ink),and Kat Von D (LA Ink) for opening the TV doors of tattoo artist of color.

The Pasture

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;

I'll only stop to rake the leaves away

(And wait to watch the water clear, I may);

I Shan't be gone long.--- You come too.

 

I'm going out to fetch the little calf

That's standing by the mother. It's so young

It totters when she licks it with her tongue.

I shan't be gone long.--- You come too.
