Kat Von D and Deadmau5 announced their engagement in December when he proposed on Twitter (what is this world?) after roughly 4 months of dating (and a break-up inbetween). Aw, true love. Of course, you can’t expect two freaks to walk down the aisle in any traditional way, so cue the HP Lovecraft references and the “underwater-themed” shindig!
On Aug. 10, the couple will marry in an “underwater-themed” ceremony before 200 friends and family in Los Angeles, the tattoo artist tells PEOPLE.
Drawing from their mutual love for H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Call of Cthulhu,” about a character that is half-man, half-octopus, Von D assures PEOPLE that she and the electronic musician’s ceremony will be “the furthest thing from traditional.”
Previously engaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James, who married drag racer Alexis DeJoria in March, Von D will have a big day that will include everything from various blue- and green-colored food to performers dressed as mermaids.
And her dress will fit the part too!
“It will have a sleek silhouette and include hints of iridescent teals, blues and deep violet ombré gradients,” explains Von D, who has called upon Falguni and Shane Peacock to make the gown, which Deadmau5 is helping design. “I didn’t know the dress was supposed to be a surprise,” she adds.
Kat also said that being with Deadmau5 (I’m sorry, “Joel”) is the only thing that “feels more natural than tattooing”. LOL! She said something similar when she was f-cking Jesse James, as well, but whatever. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at this freak fest.

It’s been a rough month for Miley Cyrus – she got grandma hair, mistakenly thought anyone is looking forward to her new music and most likely broke up with fiancé and longtime boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. To make matters worse, now she’s got another ugly tattoo courtesy of Kat Von D. The walking Tim Burton character announced her creation via her Instagram page:
“Just did the RADDEST tattoo on @MileyCyrus.
“A miniature rendition of a da Vinci anatomical heart!”
Well, isn’t that special? Also, I’ve seen a lot of actually “rad” tattoos (though I wouldn’t particularly use that word to describe them) and this ain’t it. It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever seen, but it’s far from the best. I suppose Miley’s got to do something to distract herself from the fact that she got cheated on for Hermione from the Harry Potter films.

From Us Weekly:
“Tonight, Joel put a ring on my finger — Too taken aback by its beauty and its meaning to post a pic right now,” the L.A. Ink star tweeted. But soon after that she wrote, “Doesn’t get anymore official,” and included a photo of her new ring. Two small skulls sit on either side of the black diamond, and the double band features smaller black stones.
“The biggest thank you to The Great Frog London for handcrafting the most important ring I will ever wear,” Kat Von D added.
Deadmau5 (real name: Joel Zimmerman), 31, celebrated the holidays with Kat Von D, 30, in his native Canada. The on-again-off-again couple stepped out together in Vancouver Dec. 27 holding hands, and showing off the engagement ring. The bride-to-be had a smile on her face as she held up her ring finger for photographers.
You know, all skulls and what not aside (not that there’s anything particularly wrong with the skull motif—it’s just not my thing), it’s a pretty nice ring. I’m sure lots of African people and their elephants probably had to die for it or whatever, but hey, a black diamond. Pretty nice, right? Pretty nice.

All right, this is a whole lot of story, but I promise it’s totally worth it. Just stick with me, ok?
So Kat Von D, right? We all know about Kat Von D. Except you might not know that she’s been dating Deadmau5, that DJ who is best known here at Evil Beet for talking shit about Madonna. They started dating in September, and now they’re engaged. But it’s all the stuff in between that’s really special.
First of all, they broke up last month. So they met in September, then started dating, things were cool in October, then they broke up in November. Here’s what Kat tweeted about it:
Man.. Can’t say I didn’t give it my best.
Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned
Now, we can get all of the “I told you so’s” outta the way… And move on.
Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together.
And Deadmau5 tweeted this stuff:
Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on
I guess im not cut out for relationships right now. and that’s all i really want to dwell on it right now.
I’ll figure it out. no hard feelings.
it happened too fast, i lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that im having difficulty with. she deserves someone stronger.
All those tweets happened on November 10th, and I’m not exactly sure when they got back together, but Deadmau5 was tweeting personal pictures of her again by November 17th. So he cheated on her (my guess – that’s what it sounds like, right?), and a week later they’re back together, and a month later they’re engaged. Awesome.
And here’s the really awesome part: the proposal. I don’t have to just describe it to you, you can see it yourself!
I can’t wait for Christmas so…. Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?
Yep. Deadmau5 proposed to Kat Von D via Twitter. And just for those of you who think you can’t propose without a ring, he had that issue covered too:
Kat said yes, also on Twitter:
Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!
See? You can’t even make this stuff up. Well, you could, but no one would believe you because it’s so dumb.

When they broke up, she said that she had no plans on getting it removed, and here’s why:
“He had a rough childhood, so to see what he’s become from there, it’s amazing. That’s why I wanted the picture of him as a child, to capture that certain innocence. It was good having him beside me while we finished. The tattoo is a way of him recognizing somebody loves him.”
Sad, right? But then she just tweeted this picture:
That’s fair, I guess. It probably would have been a better idea not to get the tattoo in the first place, or to have considered that maybe a relationship with Jesse James, a man best known in many circles for being a cheating cheater, wouldn’t end well, or, I don’t know, to not have dated him in the first place. But this is good too. It sounded like he really hurt her, and I’m sure it’s not easy having your ex’s face permanently plastered to your torso. So good on her, I guess.

19. 19 girls. It blows my mind that Jesse James can land any girls at all, let alone 19. Add on the fact that Jesse landed 19 girls within one year while also in a relationship, and consider me flabbergasted.
Never have I felt so strong about True Love, than I do today. I believe in Love more than anything else, and more than ever before.
Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.
I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.
There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible – even in the people who seem hopeless.
I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of him - because I see proof of change everyday – in others, and in myself.
