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.
