NY Ink is an American reality documentary tv series on tattoos. Ami James is a tattoo artist, he took part in another tv series on tattoos, Miami Ink, but when it ended he was disappointed and he moved to the greatest city in the world, New York. For a moment he even thought to give up tattooing but then he cheered himself up and decided to fulfil his dream of opening his own tattoo studio in NY, the Wooster St. Social Club. Amy has hired the most talented tattoo artists around to compete in NY and to try to have the best tattoo shop in the world. In the first season the cast was made of: Ami James, Chris Torres, Megan Massacre, Tommy Montoya, Tim Hendricks, Jessica Gahring, Robear Robear and Billy De Cola. The series follows the events of Ami James’ tattoo shop. Now the third season has started in America and also in Italy. Ami James is a hot-tempered and demanding guy so the cast has changed a little bit… some of the former cast ( Chris Torres, Billy De Cola, Jessica Gahring and Robear Robear) have been fired during season 1 and 2, and in the third season there are some new entries among which the tattoo artists Luke Wessman, Lee Rodriguez, Rodrigo Canteras and Ami’s long time friend from Miami Ink, Yoji Harada.
Ami’s team is made of artists so they’re all eccentric people and that’s why they have quarrels, play tricks to each other and also have fun together but they’re main mission is to tell the millions stories in NY City in ink!
