As a symbol of their love that was to last forever, Kat surprised Sandra Bullock's ex by getting a child portrait of Jesse tattooed on her side.
"I thought you were going to tell me that you were breaking up with me," Kat told Jesse, worried about his initial reaction to her permanent memento. Kat later retracted the statement with a giddy, "I'm just kidding."
The tattoo artist announced her breakup with Jesse via Twitter on Monday, writing, "I am no longer [with] Jesse, and out of respect for him, his family and myself, that's all the info I'd like to share."
Jesse followed with a statement to People, saying, "I'm so sad because I really love her."
The new season of "LA: Ink" premieres Thursday, July 28 on TLC.
