We all know about Jesse James’ famous ex, but did you know that his current fiancée Kat Von D was married before too? The Mexican-American reality star wed tattoo artist Oliver Peck back in 2004 and now he’s stepping into the limelight with a high-profile ink shop of his own!
Truth be told, it will be hard to compete with Von D’s High Voltage tattoo parlor. Located in the center of Hollywood, her famous body art shop has been featured on TLC’s L.A. Ink and created one-of-a-kind designs for the likes of Dave Navarro,Nikki Sixx, and Jackass’ Steve-O.
Peck’s now hoping to capitalize on Voltage’s fame with his shop, True Tattoo. Claiming to be the “real deal,” Oliver fashions himself to be quite the artist and has bashed his ex’s credibility within the ink world.
“[True Tattoo] makes real tattoos,” Peck told TMZ. “Nobody gets a good tattoo [at High Voltage].”
Even if High Voltage isn’t creating the best tattoos in the business, it does have one thing going for it: notoriety. Oliver’s in for an uphill battle if he thinks he can attractVon D’s high-profile clientele overnight. But then again, we can think of at least one person who may be interested in taking some business away from Kat and her hubby-to-be.
