Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D has now announced that she will be decamping from her longtime home in California for greener pastures in deep-red Indiana.
As Fox News reports:
“As some of you know, we recently purchased a beautiful home on a bit of land in rural Indiana, and the more time we spend out there we realize we feel more at home there than we do here in LA,” Von D, whose real name is Katherine Von Drachenberg, wrote on Instagram Monday. The post was accompanied by a photo of her with the words “Goodbye California.”
Von D operated High Voltage, her swanky West Hollywood tattoo parlor, for the last 14 years, which was also the setting for TLC reality show “LA Ink.”
Von D bought the historical Benjamin Schenk Mansion in Vevay, Indiana, last year, citing California’s “terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so many more corruption” in an Instagram post on the purchase.
Von D join other celebrities like Joe Rogan and Elon Musk in fleeing California for more attractive states.
