Kat Von D is back in LA!

LA Ink is coming to TLC, starring Kat Von DI don’t have any tattoos, nor do I think I’ll ever get one, but I did enjoy watching Miami Ink on TLC, and especially appreciated the realistic work of Kat Von D. Yesterday I spotted a ginormous (did you know it’s a real word now?) advertisement on the side of a building near Sunset & Vine for her new show LA Ink, coming next month on TLC.

From the TLC website:

Kat Von D has come home to Los Angeles to fulfill her dream of opening up her own tattoo shop. The news has spread and celebrities, rising starlets, punk rockers, musicians and tattoo collectors alike are lining up for some of Kat’s famous black and grey ink. In a city known for its tattoo culture, LA Ink is sure to stand out — drawing clients from all over the world and from all walks of life. But with popularity comes headaches, drama and a lot of hard work.

Playing by her own rules, Kat lives a fast-paced, rebel lifestyle. Hers is a life of freedom: she sets her own schedule, picks her clients, sleeps late,and parties all night. For her shop to be a success, Kat will need to learn how to balance her lifestyle and her business while managing a colorful staff of renowned artists. LA Ink will offer a rare glimpse into an LA that is seldom seen, through the eyes of a true insider.

If you want to get in on all this, they’re casting for people to be on the show.

Kat says in her 29 Random Kat Facts:

#27. I live in Hollywood, right in the center of everything. I can see the Chinese Theater from my apartment. I love L.A. and can’t see myself living anywhere else.

I wonder if she can see herself on the side of this building from where she lives.

  1. holy crap. i wanna get a billboard across the street from my house! best. idea. ever.

  2. Well Joz Joz,

    I’ll be passing on the tattoos as well; I have a fear of needles, even though I have been told there is very little pain involved.

    I wonder how much a tattoo would cost from Ms. Kat? Bet Sean will answer that, he has a little free space on his left leg for another tattoo.

  3. I’m tempted to see if I can get celebrity tatted.

    I seriously doubt if she can see Grauman’s from her place she can see the HoB office building, too.

    Tho’, if she can see Grauman’s from her place, she’s my neighbor. And that’s pretty cool.

  4. Make sure your billboard or side of building is as extremely photoshopped and touched up as this one, so you don’t look like cartooned hag you actually are.
