While Black Ink Crew is the third-highest rated VH1 series and is currently in its third season, Dutchess recently inaugurated her own custom body modification and tattoo gallery “Pretty-N-Ink.” With a Charlotte location, the opening was televised by VH1.
Days before the art classes took place, Lattimore shared, “I am so excited and thrilled to be hosting this art class. Art allows you to express desires and also combat your fears, just what children need. I want to make this holiday season special for the children and give back something to the community that has made me what I am today.”
The event occurred Monday, December 21, 2015 at “Pretty-N-Ink” and culminated with the execution of three art classes. Tools and products were donated by various organizations and individuals and brought smiles to the children’s faces–such a wonderful gift. Lattimore and staff demonstrated the various ways different mediums can be used to create pieces of beauty, while participants nibbled on refreshments provided by Drink The Cake and Couture Cupcakes and music provided by dj 2.0 (@dj_2.0_ on Instagram).
