Framed for killing a cop, Nikita agrees to work for a secret government agency.
In her time on LA Ink, fans have watched Kat go from celebrated tattoo artist to fully developed entrepreneur. In the past year, Kat launched a successful line of cosmetics at Sephora and had her book hit The New York Time's Best Sellers List. As her profile has risen, so has the shop's business - and the pressure to succeed.
All of this leads into a new season that finds Kat facing familiar challenges, but quickly explodes with a level of drama and action never seen before. Kat Von D, known for her no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is demeanor has made an indelible mark on the tattoo industry. Her success in a male dominated field is inspiring, but it comes with its share of stress. While Kat is focused on expanding her product line and writing a new book, the shop faces unexpected - and unwelcome - changes. The introduction of new shop manager, Aubry Fisher, (from Rock of Love fame) is just one example.
Playing by her own rules, Kat lives a fast-paced, rebel lifestyle. Hers is a life of freedom: she sets her own schedule, picks her clients, sleeps late,and parties all night. For her shop to be a continued success, Kat will need to learn how to balance her lifestyle and her business while managing a colorful staff of renowned artists. LA Ink offers a rare glimpse into an LA that is seldom seen, through the eyes of a true insider.
