NY Ink will debut Thursday, June 2 at 10/9c, and we have an exclusive preview of the show, which centers on Miami Ink's Ami James as he opens a tattoo shop in New York. Drama comes verbally, physically, even emotionally — as in the form of rocker Corey Taylor of Slipknot, who cries as he's tattooed, but only because he's thinking of deceased bandmate Paul Gray.
