Kat Von D has come home to Los Angeles to fulfil her dream of opening up her own tattoo shop. The news has spread and celebrities such as Jesse Metcalfe, Eve, Steve-O and Ja Rule, as well as tattoo collectors, are lining up for some of Kat's famous black and grey ink. In a city known for its tattoo culture, LA Ink is sure to stand out -- drawing clients from all over the world and from all walks of life. But with popularity comes headaches, drama and a lot of hard work. Playing by her own rules, Kat lives a fast-paced, rebel lifestyle. Hers is a life of freedom: she sets her own schedule, picks her clients, sleeps late and parties all night. For her shop to be a success, Kat will need to learn how to balance her lifestyle and her business while managing a colourful staff of renowned artists. LA Ink will offer a rare glimpse into an LA that is seldom seen, through the eyes of a true insider.
