Jesse James has clearly moved on from his split with ex-wife Sandra Bullock — and he's not afraid to flaunt it.

The 41-year-old Monster Garage star, who resurfaced on Twitter January 6, used the social networking site to express his love for current girlfriend Kat Von D.

"I have never felt so loved!" he wrote January 9. "I'm the luckiest MoFo in the world!"

Three days later, James told the tattoo artist that "48 hours away from you feels like a year…you will never be anything but beautiful to me."

Von D's sappy response? "It feels like eternity to me. What are we gonna do? I'm not a stage-five-clinger, but I need you around me, babe."

After the two attended Saturday's Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in L.A. together, the L.A. Ink star, 28, thanked James for "always supporting me and believing in everything I do. But most of all, thanks for being my best friend."

"You make it so easy to do everything I can to show you how amazing you are," James responded. "I see it as clear as a bell. My other half."
