LA Ink fans know that Pixie Acia had a huge falling out with her LA Ink co-workers in the last season, but everyone thought she would return to work with Kat Von D and the Gang. Well it looks like that’s not going to happen. On March 24, 2008, Pixie started a new job at the Velvet Grip, located in West Hollywood, CA. She left LA Ink to pursue a full-time job doing body piercing. This tattoo shop is definitely taking advantage of their new employee’s fame. You can see their commercial in between Miami Ink and LA Ink episodes. The commercial shows the shop’s current employees sitting around a table and introduces their latest piercing goddess, Pixie. Had anyone even heard of Velvet Grip before Pixie joined their team? This former LA Ink star will surely bring some extra business to her new place of employment.
Before LA Ink and Velvet Grip, Pixie Acia floated around the country, from shop to shop, doing body piercing. She was also a freelance make-up artist and still dabbles in that arena, from time to time. Pixie was responsible for the beautiful, daily, make-up job on Kat Von D of LA Ink. Now that Pixie’s gone, who will do Kat’s make-up in Season 3? How will Kat be able to manage without her, and will she find someone that can replace her? Watch season 3 to find out. Pixie will be missed.
