Kat Von D

TLC has had enough of Kat Von D -- the network has announced her reality show "LA Ink" has officially been canceled.

A rep for TLC just released a statement, claiming, the network "has decided that the current season of LA Ink will be its last." The final episode will air next month.

The rep adds, "The network is proud of what the series has accomplished in its four seasons, following Kat Von D's journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles."

The show originally premiered in 2007 -- and got a small ratings boost last month, after Kat split from Jesse James. But apparently it wasn't enough.

Kat writes, "I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being 'cancelled.' Thanks @TLC."

I both love and hated the show, There were some talented Artists on the show, Like Crag. I just hated the drama and how Kat was considered the queen. I also hated how she said, on the last ep. That nothing was forever not even tattoos, as an tattoo artist she shouldn't have that view on tattoos, if she does she should get out of tattooing...

honestly, i think a lot of us were getting tired of her as well. i started watching for the same reason many other viewers did: tattoos and art . it would have been a much better show if Kim was lead. less drama, less compulsive activity. seriously, who gets a tattoo of their employee and shortly after has a falling out with her. obviously kats committment issues go a lot deeper then just with men. and that added such an odd element to the show, being that tattoos are a huge commitment.. the over reacting and drama , it seemed to be a constant and made the show difficult to watch. a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and sorry Kat but that was you. drama drama drama. way too much. her constant need for attention was draining as well. a friend once commented "shes like the 4 year old that blows out the candles at a friends birthday party because shes not the one getting attention." (roger that!)
