Camera crews, microphones and other cast and crew members involved with cable TV network VH1’s “Black Ink” reality show, will be making a stop at a Lincolnton restaurant to film a scene for the show, set to premiere next year.
An area native will star in an upcoming season about a Harlem-based tattoo shop that draws in such celebrities as singer Keri Hilson.
The VH1 crew will be on-site at Main Street Cafe and Grille this weekend to shoot a scene of a Lincoln County actress bringing her boyfriend home to meet her parents for the first time.
Restaurant owner Ginger Weaver was unaware of specifics as of Thursday afternoon when she spoke with the Times-News.
Black Ink is based on a group of tattoo artists — one of the few African-American owned and operated tattoo shops in New York City — who work together as a family, and all that entails. VH1’s website asks, “Can they survive all of the drama that is part of everyday life at the shop?”
