  • Kat Von D

    Katherine Von Drachenberg, better known by her registered trademark name Kat Von D, is a renowned Mexican-American tattoo artist, who's recognized for crafting intricate and artistic designs, drawn from different cultures and influences she experienced during childhood. She is often heard crediting her grandmother for exposing her to art, be it learning the piano, listening to the classical compositions of Beethoven, or creating Latino-inspired tattoos. What she started off as a young teenager grew into a flourishing career, making her famous not just in the United States, but across various nations as well. After trying her luck at various tattoo shops, she found success and recognition at True Tattoo. And soon, she was one of the busiest tattoo artists in Los Angeles, even before she entered the notable Miami Ink. Besides, she opened her own Hollywood tattoo parlor, LA Ink, in Hollywood. Apart from tattooing, she has displayed her talent in modeling and acting by playing cameo roles in films and television programs. To add to her ever-increasing career graph, she has launched her own fashion brand and make-up line, and runs an art gallery and boutique. Her on-and-off romantic relationships with various reputed celebrities have got her enough limelight, largely in the form of controversies.
