You all know I have a passion for vintage things, but also love anyone who has a different or edgy style. Kat Von D has just that. Although she has more tattoos (many more) than I would ever want, I find her style to be rocker, edgy, and it really works for her.
I watch L.A. Ink all the time, and even visited the shop with my friend Judy. Corey Miller did 2 of my 4 tattoos (he works at the shop and is on the show). I love tattoos, and would probably have many more, if I wasn't a teacher, and needed to look professional most of the time. I have 4 of them...one on my lower back (the dreaded tramp stamp), a band of flowers around my big toe, faith on my foot, and a fleur de lis on my wrist. Most people who know or meet me would never think I had tattoos until I show them. I love that too. It's kind of like my little rebellious side.
Kat wrote a book last year showing pics of the many tattoos she has done, while giving us a sense of who she is. She grew up in Colton, CA, and was a troubled teen. She was artistic her entire life, and began tattooing at an extremely young age in a shop probably not really meant for girls.
She has been sober for over 2 years now, and continues to be successful with her make-up line, books, and tattooing. Here are some pics of Kat. Hope you all are having a great Monday!
Oh, P.S., I am very behind on responding to my comments. I plan to catch up today friends!
