Well-known tattoo artist Kat Von D clarified the news that she and her family would move to Indiana by leaving behind her Hancock Park house and LA tattoo shop.
As known, on December 18, the artist uploaded a photo of herself holding a “SOLD” sign in front of a huge, Victorian Style house, and captioned it as follows:
“It’s official! Vevay, Indiana here we come!❤️🇺🇸”
Following the post, a great number of fans and followers asked her whether she is leaving LA while certain media outlets releasing series of news regarding the issue. Whereupon, the ‘LA Ink‘ artist posted a photo of her son in front of their iconic house and wrote alongside it that she is not going to Indiana very soon and selling her current house. In her own words:
“Getting lots of texts from friends asking if we are moving to Indiana and selling our home in Hancock Park, and if so, why: Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA.”
However, in her message, the artist criticized the administration in Los Angeles, and stated that the city is not appropriate for a child to grow up in by writing:
“But with all that has been taking place in California, with terrible policies tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so much more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day.”
Von D also stated that she is not closing her tattoo shop in LA, California in addition to not sell her home. She concluded her words as follows:
“But will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house.”
