Fans of the TLC reality television shows Miami Ink and its spin-off LA Ink are very familiar with female tattoo artist Kat Von D, who has appeared in both series. More than 70 percent of her whole body has been used as a canvas for creative and artistic designs, and she still wants to add even more. During a guest appearance on Late Night with David Letterman last September 12, the 25-year-old tattoo artist stated that she considered tattooing her entire body to be a lifelong project, and that she would continue working on it until she had a full body suit of tattoos. Other topics that Kat Von D discussed were the various histories behind her different tattoos, including her own family's reaction to them and their presence on her body, along with her life before in Miami. After appearing for two seasons on Miami Ink and getting into creative differences with other cast members, she moved and returned home to he hometown of Los Angeles, where she opened up and started running the High Voltage Tattoo parlor. Her tattoo shop and its artists are the subject matter of, as well as her new fellow cast members in the spin-off of LA Ink. She told Letterman that Miami was not really the place for her to be, and that around every weekend, she would still catch a flight home to L.A. Upon being asked, she further explained that she didn't really regret any of the tattoos she'd ever had done, even the ones with names of ex-lovers. Kat Von D had her first tattoo done when she was 14 years old, and has always been very fond of body art. One of the latest developments in her life was her divorce from Oliver Peck, and her falling in love again, this time with a musician. Her latest flame is Alex "Orbi" Orbison, who is the drummer for the group Whitestarr.
