After Kat Von D and Joel Zimmerman, a.k.a. Deadmau5, became engaged in December, they couldn't wait to start planning their wedding.
On Aug. 10, the couple will marry in an "underwater-themed" ceremony before 200 friends and family in Los Angeles, the tattoo artist tells PEOPLE.
Drawing from their mutual love for H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Call of Cthulhu," about a character that is half-man, half-octopus, Von D assures PEOPLE that she and the electronic musician's ceremony will be "the furthest thing from traditional."

How, uh, romantic?
Electronic music star Deadmau5 took to Twitter to pose this question of girlfriend Kat Von D: "I can't wait for Christmas so ... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?"
Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, included a photo of a diamond ring with the disclaimer, "Changing the diamond to black diamond FYI. Sorry for the jpg … they'll finish the actual ring soon I hope."
Von D, 30, a tattoo artist and reality TV star, responded on her Twitter page with a string of exclamation points, then told her followers, "Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!"
