Kat Von D Gears Up for New Season of “LA Ink”

She’s had monumental success over the past five years, and tomorrow night (July 28) Kat Von D will debut her new season of “LA Ink.”

The tattoo artist/author has experienced a ton of good fortune over the past nine months, including a successful gallery opening, book tour, house fire, and engagement, and it’s all fair game for her reality show.

Crazy enough, given her breakup with Jesse James, Kat joked that her man was going to dump her during a recent taping.

Ms. Von D got a tattoo of Jesse’s 3rd grade school photo, and when she showed it to her beau, she nervously joked, "I thought you were going to tell me that you were breaking up with me... I'm just kidding."
