Today TLC announced that it is cancelling Kat Von D‘s reality show. The fourth season of LA Ink, currently airing, will be the last.
News broke just days before the season premiere that Von D and Jesse James had ended their engagement. Show ratings couldn’t have been helped by the announcement. The new season revolves around the couple’s wedding preparations, now completely irrelevant.
Von D suggested via her Twitter feed that it was actually her choice to end the show:
Presumably Von D’s Hollywood tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo, will remain open, though there may be a drop in business now that the cameras are gone.
