Is the tattoo artist's make-up line offensive? Enough people think so to see it pulled from shelves
Tattoo artist and reality star Kat Von D has fallen out of favour with make up brand Sephora, who have dropped her product line from their stores following a public backlash to her line. Kat has come under fire for some of the names used to describe the Sephora collection, prompting them to drop the tattoo artist from their rooster.
Kat's collection was supposed to be an “inspiring makeup collection” that “exemplifies the fusion of glamorous, old Hollywood and edgy rock 'n' roll," according to the cosmetic retailer's website, however it has done quite the opposite. In particular it is her lipstick, called Celebutard, that has stirred up controversy. The title may live up to the "edgy" description, but edgy doesn't have to mean offensive, which is exactly what a number of people have thought about the particular item.
"People with disabilities are the last to benefit from what some might call ‘political correctness,’ and what I would call basic human decency,” Kim Stagliano, managing editor at Age of Autism, said in her HuffPost Style blog. “Retard is still bandied about.”

Congrats to Miley Cyrus for her beautiful new tattoo.
Miley Cyrus, her grandmother and Kat Von D – you can already guess where this story is headed, can’t you? The singer debuted her brand new piece of ink yesterday and it’s as sentimental as you can get – a large portrait of her grandmother, Loretta Finnley, or as she is affectionately known to the family, “Mammie.”
The twerker's latest tattoo pays homage to her grandma.
The black and grey piece was created by celebrity tattoo artist Kat von D and Miley of course tweeted it straight after (because what would be the point of a tattoo otherwise) and she added the caption: "Because I am her favorite & she is mine."
Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo designed by Kat Von D. The singer was spotted leaving Von D's studio last week and left sporting a bandage on arm.

This is the third time Cyrus has visited Kat Von D's studio. Cyrus' latest tattoo design features a da Vinci style drawing of a human heart. Kat Von D posted a picture of the tattoo on a Twitter post, which has since been deleted, saying "just did the raddest tattoo on Miley Cyrus - a miniature rendition of a da Vinci anatomical heart!"

Tattoo artist and model Kat Von D has called off her seven month engagement with DJ Deadmau5.
Kat Von D, the American tattooist and LA Ink TV personality has announced via Twitter that it's "over" between her and Canadian producer/performer Deadmau5 after they became engaged in December 2012. The heavily tattooed model suggested via Twitter that Deadmau5, AKA Joel Zimmerman, cheated on her. After initially tweeting, "Man, I'm a fool," she tweeted, "Cheating on your loved one is the most hurtful thing one could do. I hate to have to admit, that this relationship is indeed over", following up with, "Onwards and upwards," though she didn't name names.

Seems Deadmau5 isn't too broken-hearted - the 32 year-old tweeted prior to Von D's confirmation regarding apparently parting ways with his record label: "Well now that I'm finally free... Lets put out some music! Lake mead day to celebrate today, then back to work on Friday :)." Still, can't have come at a good time for 31 year-old Kat, who can now count Deadmau5 alongside TV personality Jesse James in her list of previous fiancés.

Former husband to Sandra Bullock marries, for fourth time
Jesse James has well and truly gotten over his past relationships, with Kat Von D and Sandra Bullock, it seems. People magazine have reported that the custom motorcycle builder has tied the knot with drag car racer Alexis DeJoria, at her father’s home in Malibu. James has led something of a chequered past; he has been married three times before, was caught cheating when he was married to Bullock and has endured custody battles with his ex-wife, the porn star / producer Janine Lindemulder. In September 2011, Jesse broke of his engagement to the famous tattoo artist Kat Von D.
It looks as though the 43 year-old is finally ready to settle down though and has married Alexis at her father, John Paul DeJoria’s home. Her father, for the record, is the man behind the Paul Mitchell hair care products line and the Patron Spirits Company. The rings that they exchanged at the wedding were designed by the popular jeweller Neil Lane. The couple live together in Austin, Texas, where Jesse recently relaunched his custom motorcycle shop, West Coast Choppers. DeJria drives on the drag circuit.
In the past, Jesse has claimed that his great great grandfather is the cousin of the notorious outlaw Jesse James. However, no evidence can be found to support his claim. The James Preservation Trust, who track the various claims that people make of being related to him, have questioned Jesse’s statement and have so far not been provided with proof.

Miley Cyrus has kept mum on rumors she has split from Liam Hemsworth, though does her new tattoo hint at the reality?
Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo. Twitter users who follow ink artist to the stars Kat Von D will already be aware of this, after she posted a photo of Miley's latest piece of body art on Friday (March 15, 2013). The 20-year-old has gone and gotten what Von D called "a miniature rendition of a Da Vinci anatomical heart," on her arm. A heart eh?
If the tabloids are to be believed, Miley has split from boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, with the Hunger Games star returning to his native Australia to spend time at the bachelor pad that his parents bought him. Cyrus has been spotted on the beach looking a bit glum.
The pair have always shared a passion for tattoos, with the 23-year-old actor getting a Teddy Roosevelt quote tattooed on his arm in October, according to the Huffington Post. It matched a quote from the same speech that Miley got a few months before. The Disney actress has plenty of tattoos, including a dreamcatcher on her torso, a symbol of marriage equality on her ring finger and two crossed arrows, which Kat Von D inked in February.

With an engagement ring on her finger and the sound of sleigh bells ever increasing, you would have thought that everything was going ever so right for Kat Von D, but in fact it turns out that things aren't quite as rosy as she would hope.
According to TMZ, the LA Ink star has filed a restraining order against an obsessed fan who has apparently been constantly harassing her for quite some time now. Kat took the guy, named Michael Nunn, to court, claiming that he had been constantly sending her creepy messages on Twitter, calling her phone and even showing up to her house uninvited and following her to public events she was due to attend.
Kat had in fact filed a temporary restraining order against Munn already, but clearly that didn't quite cut it. Now a judge has ruled in her favour to place a 3-year restraining order that prohibits the man from coming within 300 yards from her at all times, including coming into contact with her online or on the phone.

Miami Ink's Kat Von D had been dating Deadmau5 for less than three months when they broke up in November, but on Saturday, the Canadian producer proposed to the tattoo artist via Twitter- and she said yes!
Well, no one really saw it coming, but nevertheless congratulations are in order. The tweet sent to Kat Von D read: "I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?" Her reply was: "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" While that's not a yes in itself, Deadmau5 followed it up with another tweet confirming that they're set to be getting married: "holy f***ing sh*t. im engaged and stuff!" Likewise, Kat said: "Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!"
Deadmau5 also posted a photo of the ring he's bought for her, and it looks pretty perfect for her. A big diamond framed by two skulls on either side of it. On the photo itself he left a further message saying that he'd be switching the diamond in the photo for a black one as soon as possible, followed by "I love you =D". Isn't that lovely? There are plenty of marriages that have been shorter than the prior relationship, but given that they've only got 3 months of history so far, we've got high hopes that that's a hurdle their marriage will be able to get over. Congrats!
Remember just a few weeks ago, when TV tattooist Kat Von D announced her split from Deadmau5 very publicly on Twitter? Well, the on-again couple have turned that little scenario right on its head and have now gotten engaged, in an equally public manner, after the producer tweeted a proposal to Kat via Twitter, with a link to a picture of an engagement ring on Saturday December 15.
The tweet to Kat read “I can’t wait for Christmas so… Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?” The picture file attached had text explaining “Changing the diamond to a black diamond FYI… they’ll finish the actual ring soon I hope. I love you,” next to a picture of a diamond ring with two silver skulls either side of the rock. The kind of ring you’d expect someone like Kat Von D to appreciate, that’s for sure. Not your traditional engagement ring but Deadmau5 was obviously confident his new fiancée would like it.
The couple have clearly managed to get over their bitter split of just a few weeks ago and Kat Von D’s response was nothing short of enthusiastic. Initially stuck for words, she posting a stream of exclamation marks, before letting her followers know she’d just got engaged by posting a message to say “Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!” Let’s hope this one last and that split a few weeks ago wasn’t a bad omen for them.
The DJ took to his Twitter to ask the big question, writing: "I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?" Complete with a picture of the diamond encrusted ring he plans on giving her... eventually.
As is the trend nowadays, the duo went on to inform their eager fans with minute by minute updates on how the news was being taken and how they planned to spend the rest of the day now they are readying themselves to become man and wife. First, Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, wrote: "Thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)," after which his LA Ink staring fiancé tweeted: "Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!"
