'LA Ink' Returns for New Season

Tuesday, August 05, 2008 It's just that impossible to keep the bad girl attitude out of your skin. TLC didn't think twice in ordering another season of the hit reality series, LA Ink. The filming began in July this year, with the open casting call announced last June. Kat Von D returns to her fast-paced lifestyle later this year, along with her needle-wielding crew consisting of Hannah, Kim and Corey. The forum on Kat Von D's website is buzzing with questions about the return of LA Ink, but the network has not confirmed when exactly it will be back. However, Kat validated the news about her return, and wrote on her MySpace page that she can't wait for LA Ink's season 3 to begin. "A third season is definitely gonna be the best one yet, so I am SO stoked about it!" she exclaimed on her blog. Fans will once again be able to take part in the tattoo artist's escapades with another batch of artists. Despite having no official dates for the premiere, the series will most likely appear alongside Miami Ink and London Ink. For those who can't miss another appearance of Kat Von D and the rest of the show's artists, a DVD of LA Ink's first season has been slated for release. Genius Products has recently announced that Season One, Volume Two of LA Ink will be in stores on October 21. Meanwhile, Kat will be making her appearances touring with her boyfriend, Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx. Kat has even promoted the new Motley Crue album on her homepage, rapturous about the song "Animal in Me." Kat was also seen strapped to the front of a train on a music video of the rock band Alkaline Trio, for the song "Help Me." Her appearance on the video was a return favor from the band's Matt Skiba, who was inked by Kat during the first season of LA Ink. -Maria Gonzalez, BuddyTV Staff Columnist
