And it looks like it did work for all involved – Joel Zimmerman, better known as Deadmau5, proposed to his tattoo artist and reality star girlfriend Katherine von Drachenberg, better known as Kat von D, via Twitter message and a picture of a ring. There were some emoticons involved. Von Drachenberg promptly accepted over Twitter (and, one would imagine, by other means) with several exclamation marks and much excitement. The excitement was returned, also over Twitter, before the betrothed went Twitter-silent for the rest of the night.
According to the proposal message, the ring isn’t done just yet (it’ll be a black diamond, Zimmerman asserts). Guess he just couldn’t wait any longer – love will do that to you.
