Peck said on Instagram. "I look at those photos, and it's hard for me to believe that I could have been so clueless, insensitive, and dumb. I hope that I've matured a great deal since then, and I'm deeply sorry for everyone I've offended."

Oliver Peck's Relationship with Kat Von D

Peck was in a marital relationship with his fellow tattoo artist Kat Von D. Kat, and Oliver tied the knot back in 2003. When they were married, it looked like the two were made for each other as they both shared an interest in tattoos.

It turns out, that wasn't quite the case. Their happiness together didn't last long, and they went their separate ways in August 2007. Oliver said:

Kat began drinking heavily and threw up every day due to excessive drinking. It was sometimes self-destructive. But, the major reason he ended the relationship was after learning that Kate was having an affair.

After leaving the Ink Master, Peck's been recovering from his Blackface controversy, which might affect his existing business and reputation.
