Talk about bad timing for Kat Von D.

Just when the LA Ink star thought it was safe to go and get a Jesse James tattoo, the couple end up breaking off their engagement.

At least, that's the way it's looking after a new promo for the reality series' season premiere was released by TLC.

In this video preview of Thursday's season five opener, a "freaked out" Von D surprises the Monster Garage host with an ink designed especially for him...of him.

"I'm getting his face tattooed on me and he's about to see it and I'm like, I have no idea how he's gonna react," she says. "He walks in and he's like. . .uh, am I supposed to be here, what's going on, ya know."

Even though he replies, "I love you," obviously we know the answer based on the breakup, which both parties confirmed this week with James citing the physical distance between them as the reason (he lives in Texas, she in L.A.)

The 29-year-old professional inker probably didn't do herself any favors though: the tat she gave herself was modeled after a picture of the motorcycle man as a young boy.

No word whether she's going to keep it now that they're done, but to make matters even more embarrassing, Von D quips in the clip, "I bet you're gonna tell me you're breaking up with me. Just kidding."

Tattoo's hurt all right (note to Von D: the guy cheated on Sandra Bullock so you're probably better off), but at least she'll have something to remember him by.

Does this look like a guy who's totally in love and wants to be in that room? You be the judge.
