Miami Ink brings together a brotherhood of tattoo artists. They learned their craft together as apprentices in South Beach. Then they went their separate ways. From Los Angeles to New York, all have become renowned artists with celebrity clientele that wait months to be inked by the masters. Now, 10 years later, they're coming home. Back to the place where it all began, South Beach, to open a tattoo shop together, live together and teach their traditions to a new generation. Their way - the right way. This is a reality series about life behind the scenes at Miami Ink, a custom tattoo parlor. The series is also a study of the interplay between 4 old friends (and 1 apprentice) as they live and work together in the pursuit of their passion: the art of tattoo. Ami James and three of his best friends - all world-class tattoo artists - are returning to South Beach to open a tattoo shop together. It's called Miami Ink. Episode 1: The four men, along with their apprentice, Yoji, are trying to build a thriving business based on their extraordinary art. The very first client is the world famous surfer Sonny Garcia, who gets a map of his native Hawaii across his abdomen. Since tattoos are forever, the Miami Ink clients tend to have profound reasons behind their choice of body art. A college student pays homage to her brother who committed suicide with song lyrics on her foot; a famous South Beach drag queen immortalizes his famous character, Marvella.
