Dutchess Lattimore is starring on the VH1’s reality docu-series Black Ink Crew.
Crystana “Dutchess” Lattimore is the new girl in the shop, a Southern Belle straight from a little town in North Carolina and right into the mayhem of Black Ink. She is from Lincolnton, North Carolina, graduated 11th in her class, and then went on to obtain a degree in Business Management.
At an early age Dutchess Lattimore showed exceptional talent in art which she developed over her early years. Always at the head of her class, she graduated cum laude from North Carolina A&T with a Bachelor Degree in Business Management, with a concentration in Visual Art. While studying in graduate school for her M.B.A. she discovered her passion for tattoo artistry and quickly became a respected and sought out tattoo artist in her area. Feeling ready to share her talent with a larger audience Dutchess Lattimore moved to New York City in 2010 where she immediately became a highly esteemed member of the ink community. Unexpectedly Dutchess Lattimore became a member of the Black Ink family and found herself involved with a career changing opportunity with VH1.
Currently Dutchess Lattimore is starring on VH1’s Black Ink Crew. During the second season of Black Ink, Dutchess Lattimore lost a great deal of respect from her fan base due to self centered, bullying behavior. The quality of her work was not even remotely matched the arrogance and over inflated ego that she exhibited.
