Kat Von DAccording to, Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead will be tattooed by Kat Von D on tonight’s LA Ink. The episode airs at 10 p.m. eastern on TLC.

Next week’s show will feature another appearance by Kat’s boyfriend Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.

Update 1/9: Lemmy was his usual awesome self on last night’s L.A. Ink episode. He went into Kat’s tattoo parlor to refresh two old and faded forearm tattoos.

Kat outlined the lettering of his “Born to lose” tattoo in white making the words easier to read and put some new ink over the rest.

Lemmy mentioned that Motörhead’s recent album, Motörizer, was the first to appear on the US Top 100 chart.

“We’re not cute enough for America,” said Lemmy.

Kat Von DLast night, Nikki Sixx [Mötley Crüe] made another appearance on TLC’s L.A. Ink with girlfriend Kat Von D. Sixx wanted to renovate his “Funny Farm” studio for all of his “creative stuff.”

Von D provided interior design assistance, deciding to transform the space into a “medical room,” a “hooker’s den,” and “Bela Lugosi’s library.”

The finished studio contained a tin ceiling, a spray painted baby, a prosthetic leg, a demonic baby carriage, meat hooks, skulls, crucifixes, taxidermy and a medical chair.

“We can even have sex on it,” said Kat Von D of the chair.

Sixx really loved his studio upon his return from the Mötley Crüe tour.

“We are like the same person,” said Sixx. “I’m blown away.”

Sixx has appeared on several episodes of L.A. Ink this season—He got a tattoo of guitarist Mick Mars on his leg and also wrote the foreword for Von D’s book.
