Kat Von D's wedding plans are sunk - and that's a good thing. The tattoo artist and her electronic-musician fiance, Deadmau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman), are leaving the traditional white wedding far behind and choosing an underwater vibe instead for their nuptials. The couple apparently both love and are drawing inspiration from the 1926 H.P. Lovecraft story "The Call of Cthulhu," Von D told People on Monday (As best we can tell from a very quick read , it's about a powerful ancient creature that is part man, part octopus and part dragon and lurks in an ancient city beneath the sea)

Kat Von D and Deadmau5 have broken up publicly, with the tattoo artist breaking the news Wednesday on Twitter and the Canadian electronic-music producer following up Thursday in much more detail on Facebook.

You might call tattoo queen Kat Von D a woman of the world. The host of TLC's "L.A. Ink" has a full name that's German (Katherine Von Drachenberg), but she was born in Mexico to Argentine parents. She's obsessed with Finland yet calls Hollywood home. Now 26, she came to fame while appearing on "Miami Ink," but some friction there sent her west, where she opened her own L.A. studio and landed the TLC gig (it airs at 10 p.m. Thursdays, and Season 1, Part 2, was just released on DVD).

Kat Von D and recent beau Deadmau5 are no longer together, the tattoo artist and reality TV star announced on Twitter over the weekend. "Man ...

DeadMau5 is so shy that Von D spoke for him on the Grammys red carpet Sunday, but he said that no matter whether he wins, he's winning by marrying her. The couple, who got engaged over Twitter in December, said they've picked a date and will marry in L.A. "We've come up with some pretty sinister stuff," said DeadMau5 of their wedding plans. One way he wasn't shy: In what we assume was a bit of commentary on the memo CBS sent out about appropriate attire for the show - specifically the line about obscenity on clothing being unwelcome.  GRAMMYS 2013: Full coverage | Live blog | Show highlights | Winners and nominees | Ballot "Your hit bums me out," read the white lettering on his baseball cap, which quite clearly showed evidence that one key letter had been blacked out.
