Kat “Cleans Up” On L.A. Ink Tonight

If you saw the preview for tonights episode of L.A. Ink, you know it involves Kat having a scary hangover after yet anotherkatv.jpg crazy night of drinking. She also mentioned in on Letterman recently, and actually got a chuckle from the audience, as I don’t think they felt she was serious or something. At any rate, Kat had this to say via a Myspace bulletin this week regarding her newfound sobriety.

Man! Never in a million years did I think I would ever make the conscious decision to quit drinking.. but the past few months of being hangover-free, and clear headed have definitely been a godsend..

Im trying to keep a constant line of communication with everyone, especially regarding upcoming episodes, as a lot of the ones in Season 2 tend to be more on the more personal and more sensitive side.. ( aside from some RAD tattoos, of course). Tomorrows episode.. its where i go sober..

Looking back now at the high amount of tequila i was consuming in a 24 hour period, i definitely wasn’t drinking to “party” anymore.. it was more of a way for me to cope with the real issues at hand, that i hadn’t been dealing with.
don’t get me wrong, some fun times were had for sure during those days, but then i started to notice instead of being a happy ass drunk all the time, i would turn into a total Debby-Downer towards the end of each night. Like, I’d be the girl who was SO wasted and would start goin off on some rant (probably about nothing), and end up in tears… ugh… totally embarrassing a lot of the times.

Finally, the day came when I had to seriously take a look at all the time and energy i had been wasting, and put myself in check. Without sounding like a goddamn AA meeting, I’m truly happy that I’ve chosen to walk away from that lifestyle.. It’s been a few months, (definitely lost count), which is a LONG time for the likes of me, and at this point don’t plan on goin back..

L.A. Ink Episode 2.2 Recap – Pixie Moonlights


The second episode of the second season of L.A. Ink aired this week, with a couple cliffhangers from the first episode. Kat and Pixie are on the outs due to her taking a week off while Kat was on tour with our boy Orbi. So, what does any good business owner do? Call the life coach right! And of course, as predicted, Hannah returns, man we really though she might not come back! But, first off, on to the ink.

First up is Brandon, a narcissistic hairdresser who wants his logo of his hair product line on his neck. And he does not want it to look “like pansy”. But watch out, here comes his mom! In the end, Mom relents, and actually leaves unannounced, and the B man gets his logo. Great idea dumbass! “B” the product bro.

Shelley is a make-up artist and gives Hannah her first piece in the new season. And what a perfect set up for the spike with some colorful flowers! Hannah’s specialty. Two magnolias on the shoulder blade end up great, not surprisingly. Great idea and piece.

Miami Ink & L.A. Ink Among Top 20 Shops To Get Inked

I recently came across a site listing their Top 20 Most Famous Tattoo Parlours to get inked at this week. And of no surprise, included in this listing, in the “celebrity section” is High Voltage Hollywood, site of L.A. Ink, and Miami Ink as well. Here is what they had to say about the two shops.

High Voltage Tattoo: TLC’s LA Ink has introduced the rest of the world into the wild and crazy world of the Los Angeles tattoo industry. Unique, upbeat cast members like Kat Von D, who boasts nearly half a million MySpace friends and followers, let the world watch while they ink all kinds of clients, including celebrities. During filming of the show, however, the shop is open during very limited times, so check out their website before you go.

Miami Ink: Before there was LA Ink, there was Miami Ink, also known as 305 Ink. Kat Von D’s appearance on TLC’s reality show started out in Miami, before she headed out West and took the camera crews with her. Miami Ink owners Chris Nunez and Ami James also own the Love Hate Lounge in South Beach.

Check out the full listing and article here.

Kat Von D Returns To Letterman Tonight


Kat Von D will join a freshly shaven David Letterman tonight on Late Night to talk about the new season of L.A. Ink. This is Kat’s second appearance on “Late Night”, as she appeared back in September the first time around. If you saw that appearance, you remember how fascinated Dave was with all of Kat’s ink. Well, apparently, KVD has upped the stakes a bit for her second time on the show. She had this to say on her myspace page…

Just wanted to let you guys know I’m gonna be on the David Letterman Show THIS FRIDAY! So if you get a chance, watch it!

I got the cutest little caricature of David and surprised him with it on the show! Its so funny!!

Oh Kat, for you, a new piece of ink is the equivalent of a new pair of shoes huh……

Watch Kat on Letterman from her first appearance….

L.A. Ink Season 2 Underway, Kat Is Not Pregnant


Ok Kat, so you are not pregnant, I really did not believe it was true anyway, think of the major drama that would have ensued if it were true! At any rate, Season 2 premiered earlier this week, and the main drama, after Kat said her pregnant rumors were untrue (very funny!), was whether or not Hannah would return.

Corey and Kim really shine on this episode, especially Kim, who does an excellent arm piece that is black and grey and full of intricate flowers, wow. I really had my doubts about this one when the dude wanted black and grey, usually flower pieces scream for bright colors, but wow.

Drama en sous throughout the episode, shockingly involving Pixie, who Kat fires in the next episode, at least that is what TLC would like you to think. So stick around for another season of L.A. Ink, and let us all be thankful Kat is not pregnant, the mood swings are too much already….

For a recap that is incredibly similar to the ones we did last season, head on over to Buzzfocus, where they provide tattoo image screencaps. Fair warning though BF, TLC will be all over that like white on rice, and that is why you will not see us going the screencap route here any longer. But hey, until they get the wrist slap, enjoy the pics.

And while we are at it, better go here to watch the episode, I am betting it won’t stay up long either.

Kat Von D Is Pregnant?


Now, I am not one to start rumors, but I certainly don’t mind jumping on a rumor train when I see one chugging along. And the most recent rumor mill goodie is once again involving Kat Von D, shocking, I know. Apparently, the folks over at The Celebrity Cafe are saying that Kat may be pregnant, which would be a big shocker actually. I think Kat has always been the type that did not want kids, and certainly not this early in her “professional” career.

So, we are not quite buying this one, yet.

Also, can anyone imagine a Kat Von D/ Orbi love child? Uh oh. And can you imagine that Hollywood tat she has, getting the major stretch out treatment?

L.A. Ink Running Away With Battle Of Inks Title


I guess the chicks are gonna pull this one out. After the voting has gone for a couple days now over at the Battle Of The Inks website, L.A. Ink is out to a rather commanding lead at 54% of the vote. (as of Friday at about 11am est). The voting is supposed to end tonight so get on over and cast your ballot if you have not already done so. Miami Ink currently has 41% of the vote with London Ink bringing up the rear at 5%.

I cast a vote for London Ink, in part because I love the underdog, as they play their Liberterian role in this vote. And partially because I really want to see the show get picked up (sadly, this is unlikely). Who did you vote for?

Kat Von D Apologies To Everyone, Sorta


Now the owner of a world record for most tattoo’s given in a 24 hour period, Kat Von D has no time to relish in her victory. That’s because some drama was going down on the record setting night last week in L.A. apparently. If you keep up with Kat on her myspace page, this will not be fresh news, but since most of us try and stay away from that leper colony, here is what went down.

I guess what we had was a failure to communicate, as tons of people showed up and waited in line, but there was a certain “wristband” controversy. Have a peek at this video that LAist shot.

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vqmdtWoRTto" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]

So, people were pissed already. Lots of people got the ink, but lots had to wait some 24 hours to get it. In this video, check out a customer who was only minutes away from being a part of the record setting night! And try to ignore the stoned interviewer…..

But, what will certainly piss off more than a few people, here is someone who claims to have “sweet talked” the right people and had to wait about 5 minutes, instead of 24 hours, for her ink. She is also pictured above.

As for the apology, well Kat done went and wrote another MySpace novel…..
