Talk about tat-tat tatted up. Queen of ink Kat Von D has more tattoos than anyone could count in one sitting. We tried. AnKat has come a long way since her first tattoo job at 14. After appearing on both Miami Ink and her own show, L.A. Ink, which was canceled last year, Kat has become one of the most sought after artists in the industry. She’s also inked some paper with two best-selling books. And with a makeup line, an art gallery, a hefty list of top clientele and her first album on the way, Kat’s permanently marked herself a business woman. Sorry, fans, but snagging a seat in Kat’s chair at High Voltage Tattoo is a pretty difficult feat: the wait list is almost two years. Some of us will just look on from afar, admiring her work, and tut-tutting about her hook-up and breakup from ex-fiance Jesse James. Not that we think she’ll stay single for long — this lady she pulls off that whole tough yet feminine yet super sexy look pretty well.
Kat Von D turns 30 today, and in honor of her birthday, here are 30 pics of some of Kat’s own, personal ink, including the infamous Jesse James’ tattoo. Happy Birthday, Kat!
