Take it from the cast of VH1’s Black Ink Crew: Chicago, they know a thing or two about tattoos. 9 MAG Tattoo owner  Ryan Henry and shop manager Charmaine stopped by Life & Style and answered fan questions related to tattoo culture, and they did not hold back with the advice. The main takeaway is: do not, and we repeat, do not get your partner’s name tattooed because while your love might not be permanent — that ink on your body is! Watch the video above to see Ryan and Charmaine on Life & Style’s series, “Ask a Reality Star,” and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more celebrity news.

Black Ink Crew: Chicago airs on VH1 Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
