Kat Von D covers Latina magazine's November issue
Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D opens up to Latina about her upcoming rock album and how she’s recovered from a series of failed relationships in the November 2013 issue of Latina, which hits newsstands and Nook Newsstand on October 15, 2013.
Von D, who shot to stardom on the hit reality show L.A. Ink and runs the successful High Voltage Tattoo shop in West Hollywood, tells Latina about growing up in Southern California and how she first became interested in makeup, which eventually led to creating her best-selling eponymous line for Sephora.
On calling off her engagement last summer: “I get a bad rep for being constantly in and out of relationships, when in reality if you look at my timeline it’s not really the case. I’m very good at being aware of my weaknesses, [but] what I’m not good at oftentimes tends to land in the romance department.”
On moving on from a failed relationship: “I’m not angry at [ex-fiancé] Joel [Zimmerman]. I’m not angry at [ex-fiancé] Jesse [James], I’m not angry at Nikki [Sixx]. I’m just angry at myself for wasting my time, because I could have finished my record.”
On reconciling with her dad through music: “I would teach [my dad] to play Guns ’N Roses or the Misfits on his accordion and he would play along while I played the guitar and sang.”
On discovering her love of cosmetics, leading to her top-selling Sephora line: “Makeup to me is an art form. It’s one of the perks of being a girl.”
On her goals for the future: “I want to make furniture. I want to complete the album, go on tour. I have a documentary that I’ve been filming secretly for three and a half years. Maybe write another book. Tons of things. I’ve really gotten into entomology—I bought a lot of butterflies and I’m learning how to pin them and make lampshades, like, Victorian era. If I were to write out a to-do list, it would fill the entire wall.”
Seriously? I thought they would give it to one of the Machete Kills women tbh. What does Kat Von D even have going on right now?
