Mexicana Kat Von D is a tattoo master. Not only is she a beautiful tattoo artist herself, but she has also long used her body to be a vehicle for her art and creativity. Just scrolling through her Instagram, and you will find the work of one creative person. The proud Latina loves putting her work out there, whether that’s her own tattoos that adorn her body, the tattoos that she creates for others, or anything else. She clearly has a thirst for life and creativity, and the easiest way to soak it all up is through her own tattoos.
The recently married and recently pregnant celebrity has dozens of tattoos that vary from deep meaning, like the high school photo of her beloved papi (who she calls her hero) to her favorite composer (she began playing piano at age 7!) to the various initials, letters, small hearts, and so much more. She truly treats her body as a work of art and, after you find out some of the hidden meanings behind some of her favorite tattoos, you might just be inspired to run out and get your own ink.
