First, it was Gene Simmons's reality TV proposal – which aired months later, when the couple had all but split up.

Now, just days after PEOPLE broke the news that Jesse James and Kat Von D ended their engagement, the former bride-to-be can be seen gushing about her then-fiancé on the new season of LA Ink, which premiered Thursday night.

"The long-distance relationship, we're just making it work," says the L.A.-based Von D. (James, who lives in Austin, blamed their breakup on the miles between them.) She also refers to him on the show as "my soulmate" and giddily shows off her new tattoo – an image of James as a child.

"What can I say?" the title of her Wednesday night blog post reads. "I suck. I allowed today to get the best of me."

Not all has been bad this week for Jesse James, who confirmed his split with Kat Von D on Monday.

The motorcycle mogul, 42, was awarded sole custody of his daughter Sunny, 7, in an Orange County, Calif., courthouse on Monday, following a several-years-long acrimonious court battle with Sunny's mother Janine Lindemulder.

James's attorney John Schilling tells PEOPLE that if Lindemulder chooses to relocate to Texas to be near Sunny, she'll be ordered to inpatient rehab. If she remains in California, she'll only get monitored visitation of her daughter.
