Kat Von D Radically Changing Tattoos as Her Christian Journey Continues

The greatest conversion stories in history almost always involve the unlikeliest of people.

This is no less the case than with celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D.

From a goth icon covered in tattoos — obsessed with witchcraft and the macabre — to an outspoken Christian homesteader, Von D is a living testament to the power of Christ’s transformation.

In a fitting moment of poetic symbolism, last week Von D announced she would be blacking out her old tattoos, i.e. covering them over with black ink, according to Inked Magazine.

Many of Von D’s old tattoos were a part of her old life. They represented her former Christless values, interests and desires.

Now, many of them are gone.

“I just couldn’t explain how satisfying it was to see all the messes [the tattoo artist] would clean up with his blackout tattoo work,” she said.

“I think at that time I thought I would just black out an arm, but shortly after, I knew I would end up tattooing my whole body.”

In much the same way that Von D’s outer appearance has now been transformed, so has her inner life, thanks to Christ.

Von D is, as Paul said, “putting off the old self” in order to allow the new to grow in Christ.

News of Von D’s conversion first came out when the celebrity posted a video of her baptism on Instagram on Oct. 3, 2023.

Later in 2023, Von D told Christian podcaster Allie Beth Stuckey that she was “on fire for Jesus,” adding, “I don’t plan on this dimming out.”

“The more and more I learn, the more and more excited I get about things and the more at ease I am about what’s happening in this world and what’s happening in my marriage — in all of it,” she said.

In her interview with Inked Magazine, Von D also revealed her family was moving to live on a homestead.

“I traded the city life for a simple life in rural Indiana in the middle of nowhere, and I love it,” she said.

“We bought a nice piece of land where we plan to set up our homestead soon, once renovation of our Victorian home is done.”

Von D is now focused on homeschooling her son and actively participating in her church, which she attends regularly — in addition to her involvement in the choir and a women’s Bible study.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
