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. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Trashy cast, trashy tattoos
6 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't stand KVD when she was on the few episodes of Miami Ink I watched, and honestly, the only episodes of her show I have watched were the ones with Nikki because I've been a fan of Motley Crue since 1982. Even then, I had to take Dramamine first.

She's trailer park trashy, her tattoo work is impressive, but she's still trashy. I rejoiced the day Nikki kicked her star banging butt to the curb for good. I'd never go through what people have to, to have work done at High Voltage, it's a nightmare and you sell your soul for maybe two minutes of screen time, PLUS you still have to pay their exorbitant prices. Nothing beside portrait work seems to be done with any skill there. I prefer another LA tattoo shop where it's about SKILL, TALENT, and no TV drama.

This show is more about high drama than showcasing real, and talented tattoo artists. Trying to make tattoos acceptable for the masses has always left a bad taste in my mouth, and I can't wait until it's no longer a fad that EVERYONE wants to be a part of.

Watch LA INK for the nighttime soap opera action with tattoos, go to BODY ELECTRIC for beautiful tattoos. Nuff said.
