A leggy Kat Von D was all smiles as she left her tattoo shop in Hollywood on Friday (August 19).

Despite news of the cancellation of her TLC reality show, the former L.A. Ink star was in a cheerful disposition as she made her way to a nearby post office.

While her show will soon be off the air, Kat’s engagement to Jesse James is on again,

“Sometimes you are only given one chance in life,” says Jesse, who tweeted a photo of the two of them in bed, kissing. “It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her.”

Meanwhile, Kat is spinning the end of her L.A. Ink show a different way, saying on Twitter: “I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being “cancelled.” Thanks @TLC. Regardless of everything I remain grateful.”

First her romance with Jesse James comes to an end and now comes news that Kat Von D‘s reality show is over, too.

TLC has decided that this current season of L.A. Ink, starring tattoo artist Kat Von D, will be its last.

In a statement, TLC said, “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 series finale will air Sept. 15 at 10 PM.”

The fourth and final season has been especially tough for the celeb tattoo artist, as it has focused on her relationship with Jesse James and their wedding plans.

Last month, an unhappy Kat wrote on Facebook: “What can I say? I suck.”

Kat Von D has been sporting some impressive bling on her ring finger as of late — so is she engaged?

“I don’t know if I really feel comfortable talking about it,” the celebrity tattoo artist told reporters today (October 26) before heading out to sign copies of her new book, The Tattoo Chronicles at Barnes and Noble in New York City.

Is it an engagement ring? “It’s actually a ring from the 1900s,” is all Kat would say. But she does confirm that she’s still definitely still with Jesse James – and says the rumours that she’s back with her exes are just that. “I’m not dating Nikki (Sixx),” she says. “We didn’t get back together. Jesse and I didn’t break up.”

Kat says she just started wearing the diamond ring. “Yeah, it’s been an addition to all the rest of my jewelry and my Victorian collection,” she says. “They don’t make things like this anymore. There’s no more craftsmanship in a lot of things.”

As for Jesse? Kat says she’s proud to have him in her corner. “I’ve known Jesse for a long time, since I was 22 years old,” she says. “I think he’s probably one of the most kind-hearted, intelligent human beings.”

And though she loves doing charity work for kids, they’re not in her near future. “Since I was seven I knew I was never going to have children,” she says. “I love children, children like me because they think I’m a cartoon. But I’m married to my job. I love what I do.”

Kat Von D dropped by the Young Hollywood Studios in Los Angeles today (October 21).

As for beau Jesse James? He’s busy closing up his West Coast Choppers shop in Long Beach, CA. Jesse has not confirmed the news.

While Kat publicly proclaimed her love for Jesse last month, it appears the two may be on the rocks now.

The two were reportedly seen on October 3 looking more in love than ever over lunch at a West Hollywood eatery, but just two days later Kat was spotted getting “cozy” with her ex-boyfriend Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. She has not commented.

As for Jesse? He may very well soon open up another one of his burger joints, Cisco, in Austin, TX, where he is spending much of his time so that he can be near his his ex, Sandra Bullock, and baby Louis Bardo.

Wearing a beanie and carrying a large black trash bag, Kat Von D was seen stopping to take photos on her cell phone as she showed up to work at her tattoo shop in Los Angeles today (October 14).

Later in the day, the celebrity tattoo artist was spotted picking up some coffee from a local Starbucks with one of her fellow tattoo artists.

As for Kat’s boyfriend Jesse James’ whereabouts? Back in Texas where he’s raising his kids — but not for long, according to his ex-wife Janine Lindemulder.

“He did everything that he could to try and win Sandra Bullock back but it just didn’t wash and now that he has Kat in his life why would he stay in Texas?” says the porn star. “All of his friends are in California and he was like a fish out of water in Austin which is really Sandra’s town. The sad part is that he made the kids move there and now he will have to bring them all back again. He’s a narcissist and if it means being with Kat Von D and all the publicity that will bring then I’m sure he will go for it. I guess I should be happy that he returns to California because I can be closer to [my daughter] Sunny but the truth is that no matter where I am he will always make me jump through hoops before I see our daughter.”

On hand to lend some support to her friends, Kat Von D attended the Jackass 3D premiere in Los Angeles on Wednesday (October 13).

Looking rested and wrinkle-free, the celebrity tattoo artist and rebound to none other than Jesse James did her best to crack a smile on the red carpet before slipping inside Mann’s Chinese Theater to check out the latest installment of the Jackass franchise.

While at the star-studded premiere, Kat tweeted: “Oh man! At the Jackass premiere about to get my mind blown! This is the first 3D movie I’ve seen!!”

Meanwhile, Jesse’s daughter has revealed that her dad’s relationship with Kat may have started sooner than when reports first surfaced during the summer. And things are getting serious fast – Miss Von D might be a stepmother soon!

Sunny, Jesse’s daughter with ex-wife Janine Lindemulder, revealed to her mother that Kat has been in the picture longer than anyone knew.

“I got Sunny on the phone and she said, ‘Kat’s here,'” Janine tells Life & Style. ”Then she said to me, ‘You know, Mom, I haven’t known Kat just a couple of weeks. I’ve known her for months.'”

If that’s indeed the case, it should come as no surprise that Kat is reportedly becoming stepmom material with each day. “Kat is closer and closer to becoming a stepmom,” Janine adds.

Sunny didn’t express any emotion over a possible new stepmom, but she is still hurting over Jesse’s and ex-wife Sandra Bullock’s divorce. In addition, Janine says it’s too soon for Sunny to have a new mother figure in her life. “(She’s) still grieving over missing Sandra and missing her brother,” she says. “She says that Louis isn’t her brother and Sandra doesn’t have her last name, James, anymore. She thinks her baby brother is gone. She’s really hurting.”
