Black Ink Crew: Chicago follows a passionate and ambitious group of tattoo artists and friends through the unforgiving streets of Chicago as they band together to create new identities for themselves, their families, and their business.
The premise of this show is that a group of girls with emotional and personality disorders thrown together with little moderation will somehow moderate themselves. HA! Notice, however, that all the girls here are gorgeous, seem to be coming from privileged backgrounds, and are promiscuous beyond imagination (yes, a few cast members allegedly even entered the porn industry after the show). These girls cover just about the entire spectrum of personality disorders and mood disorders in the DSM-IV. This show allows for the narcissists to grab the spotlight, the antisocial girls to have a whole menu of people to manipulate, sabotage, and exploit, and an environment for bipolar girls to go absolutely out of control. There is absolutely nothing therapeutic about this show. It encourages the worst behavior of our society.
That said, if you ever want to feel better about yourself, watch this show.
