Queen of Ink Kat Von D is mostly known for getting tattoos ... not removing them. So when she split with her ex Jesse James (for good, this time), we were surprised to hear she was getting her lover's fifth grade portrait removed from her ribcage.
Originally, she insisted on keeping the ink. "I love my tattoo," she told TMZ. "It's more than just a portrait, it has a lot of meaning." But after their official breakup in the fall of 2012, she changed her tune. "AND SO IT BEGINS!" she tweeted cheerfully. "First round of tattoo removal well underway! :) #freshstart."
James isn't the only love she's been tattooed for as she revealed in Inked: "I have lots of people's names on me and it’s not so much like, 'Oh, I'm gonna regret my ex-husband's name on my neck,' it's more like a time in my life that I don't regret." Guess that means she regrets dating Jesse James? So does half of Hollywood.
