Kat Von D - Kat Von D: Why I Got Jesse James' Face Tatooed On My Stomach


Kat Von D, who announced her split from fiancé Jesse James earlier this week on Twitter, has revealed why she chose to have her former beau's face tattooed across her ribcage. US Magazine reported that she made the revelations in the premiere of the latest series of LA Ink on Thursday (28th July). She said: "He had a rough childhood, so to see what he's become from there, it's amazing. That's why I wanted the picture of him as a child, to capture that certain innocence.It was good having him beside me while we finished. The tattoo is a way of him recognizing somebody loves him."
She also revealed how the pair first became a couple: "We were friends forever so I thought dating would be weird," she said. "I never saw him like that. and once you're in my friend zone, that's usually it. But one day something in my heart said, 'How's your friend Jesse?' so I texted him a joke and he came right back saying he hadn't laughed in weeks." On Monday (25th July), Jesse James told People Magazine about the split: "I'm so sad because I really love her. The distance between us was just too much." This made for an unfortunate moment when the LA Ink premiere aired the following Thursday, which was filmed before the split, with Von D saying: "The long-distance relationship, we're just making it work."
