According to one of our pals at production over at the network, VH1 will begin shooting the a new Black Ink show based in Southern California. The show has the working title, Black Ink Crew Compton.

The Black Ink franchise also has a series based in New York, and another in Chicago, so this will be the series' third franchise city.

The show chronicles the daily operations and staff drama at an African American-owned and operated tattoo shop. The initial Black Ink Crew series - which first aired in 2013 - was  filmed in New York. The spinoff Black Ink Crew: Chicago premiered October 26, 2015. 

The new Compton Black Ink show is scheduled to premiere this fall.

And what should we expect? A VH1 insider told us to expect "drama, drama, and more drama."
