Yes, Kat Von D. and Jesse James are a little eccentric. With their overflowing tattoos, rollercoaster love life, and TMI tweets, they’ve been known to stir up a lot of attention. But one area of expertise they may not get enough credit for is their business savvy. These two have earned millions with their trademarked brands and now they may be launching a new company together.
The rumors of a Kat and Jesse corporation got started on the series finale of her reality show, L.A. Ink. After a tumultuous life in the public eye, the two are now living on the outskirts of Texas. And, as Von D. put it, the time may be right for them to professionally join forces.
“I think the idea of sharing a tattoo shop with Jesse sounds awesome,” she said. “I see Jesse working on stuff and it inspires me everyday. I think we would work really well together.”
To be honest, both of their fields do seem to intertwine. James has been known to build some very colorful customized rides and Kat could easily offer body art to the customers while they wait in the garage. Von D. seems so keen on the idea, she’s already got a name for the new biz.
“[I’m hoping to] call it Jesse Von Kat Tattoo and Motorcycle Emporium!” she said.
