A diamond ring has been spotted on the left index finger of tattoo artist Kat Von D

American tattoo artist and television personality Kat Von D has been spotted with a diamond ring on the all important finger, hinting at a possible engagement, it has been reported.

The glittering ring was seen on her left index finger when she turned up to sign copies of her new book, The Tattoo Chronicles, at Barnes and Noble in New York, stated USA Today.

When asked by the newspaper's Andrea Mandell if it was an engagement ring, the 28-year-old was non-committal, simply saying: "I don't know if I really feel comfortable talking about it."

However, she confirmed that it was "actually a ring from the 1900s" and also used the opportunity to pour cold water on rumours that she had parted ways with Jesse James in favour of her past partners.

Tennis star Maria Sharapova was also recently spotted showing off her diamond engagement ring during a walk in Los Angeles with future husband Sasha Vujacic, the LA Lakers basketball player.
