Kat von d dating timeline
Kat moved to Colton, California, when she was four years old with her parents, brother, and sister.
Her parents divorced years later and her mother moved back to Mexico.
It’s a combination of punk, goth, and good old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll, featuring lots of black (and lately, head-to-toe red) outfits in faux leather and kooky avant-garde shapes.
Jet-black hair, red lipstick, and predilection for mismatched eye makeup have become her signatures. “My biggest nightmare would be if somebody came to Sephora, saw my brand, and said, ‘Oh, I want to look like her, so I’ll buy this makeup,’” Kat Von D proclaimed to an audience of beauty world professionals at the Beauty Summit this summer, her first-ever appearance at a major industry event.
“I think that model may work for Kylie or whoever else bases their career on vanity or some kind of superficial thing.
It’s quite a gamble because that can be very fleeting a lot of times.” Despite the similarities, Kat doesn’t appreciate Kylie comparisons. Tattooing is where it all began for Kat, who was born Katherine von Drachenberg.
Her father is a doctor and she grew up with a conservative background as a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, where her parents were missionaries.
Kat has a years-long wait list and is no longer taking appointments, in order to catch up.
She recently said in a You Tube video that she doesn’t charge for tattoos anymore, preferring to do it for art’s sake. (She has published two other books since.) In it, she models in a bikini and describes the origin of each batch of ink.
Expanding on her interest in drawing, she started experimenting with tattooing, practicing on her friends.
By 16, she had dropped out of high school and moved to Georgia with James.
