Sky Talks Plastic Surgeries And Adoption
The OG Black Ink return to TV last night to the delight of Sky fans. The mother and shop manager seemed to step her game up. On the debut, Sky shows she’s maintaining pretty well in ATL as the new general manager of their southern tattoo shop.
Throughout the episode Sky shows signs of maturity, even expressing she’s ready to reunite with her adult sons, who she struggled raising and gave up for adoption. From the previews, you can see one of the meetings with her boy went kinda crazy.
In a recent interview with Refinery 29, she addresses the meeting, why she brought her story to TV and her thoughts a year after getting plastic surgery.
Sky says she has no regrets after getting her bawwdy knifed up on national television:
“I love that shit. That shit bomb as hell! I love surgery. I love my body. I love going to the gym to keep that body up. I’m just thankful that I’m looking the way I always wanted to look now.”
Sky on the stigma of getting cosmetic work done:
I don’t think it’s too much of a stigma. Me and my girls go get Botox just because it’s lunch if we have a wrinkle on our heads. I feel like there used to be such a stigma before. The topic was so hushed secret. Now it’s just more out there. It’s about how you want to put it out there. Me personally, I put out whatever surgery I do because I remember looking at magazines and looking on shows and being like, ‘Her duck lips are all perked and her face isn’t even moving!” And then I come to find out all these hoes got fillers. So it’s just like everybody is fake. Everybody is pretending, so I like to let people know what it is. I do what I do because I’m happy I’m able to do it. You know, do it within your capacity.”
“I love both of my children. I’m happy I was able to reunite with both of them. Whatever the capacity was — you see on the spoiler and commercial they have out now what it is. One went better than the other. But I’m happy that I’m able to meet both of them, and it is what it is. I’m happy that the world is going to see it because we’ve been on this journey for a very long time.
I brought awareness to adoption, especially in the urban community. And I was happy to do so because, like I said, where I come from, we are raised with the kids in the household. But now, we see what it is, everyone knows about my children because of me. A comment about them and a comment about taking care of them… These are men. [chuckles] They’re my kids, but they’re men. You know that right? They’re 18-plus.”
