Kat Von D revealed that she's covering tattoos on her back with solid black ink
Kat Von D is in the process of covering tattoos across her back and shoulders.
She originally had a portrait of her mom, the phrase "Mi Vida Loca," and a Carmen Miranda cartoon.
The author and musician has also covered tattoos on her arms and legs with solid black ink.
Kat Von D is concealing more of her signature tattoos.
The multi-hyphenate figure revealed via Instagram on Thursday that she's in the process of covering designs across her back and shoulders with blackout ink.
"Got so much done today!" Von D wrote over a picture of her new, solid black design. She also thanked Philadelphia-based artist Hoode for tattooing her.
Her former back tattoos included a portrait of her mother, the phrase "Mi Vida Loca," and a cartoon of Carmen Miranda.
Von D first started working with Hoode in December 2020 to cover tattoos across her arms.
She said on Instagram that the tattoos "meant nothing" to her, and only served as "landmarks in dark times" because she got them when she used to drink.
"Now my arm looks so nice and clean, and the portrait of my Father stands out even more," she wrote at the time.
Then in June 2022, Von D revealed that she was also getting blackout tattoos on her legs, covering the area from her upper thigh to her backside.
"Before anyone starts criticizing, I encourage you to remember that it's ok not to like or even understand things," she wrote on Instagram. "Trust me, I've seen plenty of tattoos I personally would never get. And those differences make this world so much more interesting! So no need to comment any negativity."
She added: "Just know that I absolutely LOVE it, and it's extremely refreshing for me to see all the garbage, drunken tattoos I had scribbled all over my leg that I got before I became sober, be covered by sleekness and simplicity."
Von D, who rose to fame for her work as a tattoo artist and makeup-brand founder, has slowly started to alter her aesthetic in recent years.
In addition to covering her tattoos, Von D is also selling her gothic mansion in California and announced that she's thrown out books about witchcraft and the macabre.
"I've always found beauty in the macabre, but at this point, I just had to ask myself what is my relationship with this content?" she wrote on Instagram in July 2022. "And the truth is, I just don't want to invite any of these things into our family's lives, even if it comes disguised in beautiful covers, collecting dust on my shelves."
