Kat Von D goes shopping. Pic via Splash. I saw Kat about four nights ago at the new burger diner, next to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Sunset and Fairfax. A paparazzi snapped her pic.

She was dining with a girlfriend and she was like “dude, I’m just chilling out man.” Then she drove off in her black Bentley. Tattooing is a lucrative bizzo in Los Angeles.

She’s a sweetheart.

BTW – The burgers are tumeke at the new burger joint and their key lime pie is the best. Not too sweet or too sour. Just right.

I like Kat Von D. She’s like the updated reality TV show version of Snow White yet the seven dwarves are now all worn on her. She’s a story pic doll. Many people look like Kat in Hollywood. Local native California peeps do. It’s their thing in the 30′s set here to get inked.

When looking at this photo of Kat Von D with Jesse James you can’t help think how Hollywoood ‘life cycles’ spin so much quicker than any other part of the world. For a second there, I thought that this was a guy married to an Oscar winner 11 months ago. But no, I must have been confushed.

Kat’s blue shoes are kitschy fun as she attends The Art of Elysium charity gala in L.A. Everyone in their 30′s in L.A loves this chick! She’s like a novel with the amount of ink on her, but she can write a story in ink too – that Young Hollywood treasures like its a Picasso or something. The youth of today really really want a sense of permanency. A tattoo is their American story they can guarantee, hence Kat’s huge fame here – being a part of it. I like other tattoo artists as much as Kat – although I have not yet once felt the need to get one. This blog is my Hollywood tattoo. It moves fast.

Kat and Jesse are playing good villains for when Sandra hands over her Oscars crown next month. You know, Sandra always needs that ‘halo-perception’ framing before she can even step out of her biker denim, home repair jeans and into a dress these days as Sandra the movie star. Kat’s good humored efforts are helping Sandra a lot – get motivated to appear with lipstick on. Lol!

I also must repeat the message that everyone who has worked with Ms Bullock never has one bad word to say about her on a set, to put these comments in context. She’s a pro.

Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.

BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.

Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.

Many of you have been asking for this for months. Here it is. Kat Von D’s LA INK store front sign, also used in the reality TV show. Photographed today.

It’s a good one to stick on your phone. Especially if you don’t have or want a tattoo, but don’t want to appear as a snob to the many people that do.

This shop is an iconic Hollywood landmark now of California. Proof, that it’s amazing what a single sign can do to sell an entire entertainment arts bizzo.

Moving on from a lesbian actor ex-wife, like Jesse James has been doing recently in the public eye, must be a little bit tough. Last night James was on the arm of local West Hollywood tattoo artist Kat Von D, for Kat’s Wonderland Gallery opening.

West Hollywood loves Kat Von D, so it’s nice to see this girl helping out her friend rebuild his image.

Jesse James sighting with Kat Von D of LA Ink is the hottest news item at this minute on Horiwood.Com. Many of you are seeking Nikki news. So you Motley lot, here we go. This from August 12th 2010, via RRRB:

MÖTLEY CRÜE/SIXX: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx has posted the following message on his official :

“I am sorry I haven’t written to you all in a while in the form of a ‘blog,’ but it seems the instant-contact back-and-forth of Twitter has gotten the best of me, too. Well, that and the fact that I’ve been finishing a new book, a new SIXX: A.M. album of songs, a MÖTLEY CRÜE tour, a radio show, press, a clothing line, and let’s not forget the most important thing I do in life is being a father of four. 

“So, excuses aside, how are you? Is your summer full of positive energy as we slowly head towards the fall? My favorite creative time of year, but this summer has been fruitful for sure.

“I wanted to thank all of the fans that came out to Europe to see MÖTLEY CRÜE play this summer. It was one of the best times of my life. Not only were the crowds great but I also had such a wonderful time having Kat[Sixx's on-again girlfriend and 28-year-old tattoo artist Kat Von D (bornKatherine Von Drachenberg)] along with me for the whole tour.

Aw! How cute. Expect matching tattoos to follow for Nikki and Kat, any day on Kat’s new season’s show no doubt. When you’re a reality TV star, you always need fresh content. It’s bound to happen.

Each man to their own, but why does a rocker think that having his girl give up her life to go on tour with him, is a good deal for her? Too funny! But go Nikki Six!

According to People Magazine, a usually reliable source of celebrity news, Jesse James was spotted having dinner with tattoo artist, Kat Von D, star of LA Ink reality TV show in Las Vegas.

James reportedly divorced Bullock late June this year. 

If you live in L.A, this dinner incident with two inky well-known faces of TV is celebrity talk for… Sandra texting Jesse to ask him to appear somewhere with another inky celebrity, because Rihanna‘s new , had bolted away with the celebrity news spotlight for the weekend. All other celebrity peers were texting Sandra to ask her to do something about their ever diminishing spotlight, in light of Rihanna’s new ink. 

Yes, celebrity rankings really are that competitive and shallow. Sandra looks like she was onto that one, with this little James-Von D manouever on the Hollywood celebrity board. 

And before we jump to conclusions that Jesse and Kat are romantically linked just for rocking out for a burger and fries in Vegas, divorcees are allowed friends.

That’s just healthy social behavior.
