Well in tribute of the LA Ink season finale I figured I would feature this portrait I drew of Kat Von D a few years back!! I have always admired Kat for her unique style and awesome down to earth fun personality. I think she is beyond stunning and a great example of how you can be a beautiful woman even if you are covered in the edginess of tattoos. And well as we all know that is right up my alley since I myself am heavily tattoo’d.
Back when I drew this Kat use to have an email address posted on her site and I emailed the picture to her and this was the response she sent me.
From: Kat Von D

Hey Nicole,Thank you so much for the rad fanart. I love it!
Kat Von D
I remember the day I opened my email and my jaw dropped.. because I remember an episode of LA Ink back in the day where she was trying to make time in her schedule to answer her fan email so I knew it was a response from her. Now of course she uses Twitter to stay in touch with fans. But the awesome thing about it is that she makes the time for her fans!!
