Kat von D by Into The Gloss

“My nighttime look is exactly like my daytime look—like I’m going to a super fancy funeral. I guess it would be considered extreme to most people, but I like it that way. The idea of conventional beauty isn’t attractive to me…that’s why, when I was growing up, I felt kind of torn about makeup. But I’ve always listened to punk rock, and for punks, eyeliner isn’t used to accentuate your eyes—it’s a tool of self-expression. I see my makeup in that way. I enjoy wearing it and I enjoy not wearing it. Do I prefer to have eyebrows when I go out? Sure. But I don’t care either way.

I have my go-to products. It’s hard not to come off very self-promoting, but the truth is, I don’t make any product that I don’t personally wear. In terms of things I can’t live without, my Lock-It Foundation and my Featherweight Primer set the groundwork for my makeup. The foundation is full-coverage, which I think people find intimidating, but it’s really lightweight. As far as concealer goes, that is another comfortable formula—Lock-It Concealer. It has the power to cover tattoos.

For me, a simple eye works best. I like using my Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette, which I use for everything. It has three different quads—no pop colors, just warm and cool browns and neutrals. And my Tattoo Eyeliner is my favorite. I use it in my eyebrows, too—if I’ve overtweezed, I can just draw little fine lines and fill them in. I’ve been so tempted to shave my eyebrows off and start all over again, but I’m not gonna do it. I’m continuing to arch them in different ways but it’s becoming a blur as to where my real eyebrows are. [Laughs]

If I want to do a smoky eye, I tend to focus more on the eyeshadow versus the eyeliner to avoid looking like a Duran Duran album cover. And if I do a smoky eye, I’ll probably do a nude lipstick. I tend to fluctuate between reds and nudes. Right now I’m wearing two colors at once, Lolita and Lolita II, like a really subtle ombré. For reds, lately I’ve been addicted to Santa Sangre. I put it on and was like, ‘Where have you been all of my life?’ It’s not as blue as Outlaw, and it just looks so good. I think anyone who’s a fan of red lipstick understands even the slightest differences in shades of red.

I get a little concerned about tattooing makeup sometimes. I’ve been tattooing professionally since I was 16, and I’m 34 now. But for some people, it takes two weeks to get their cosmetic tattooing license, which does not sound right for the person who is putting a needle and permanent pigment close to your eye. It’s a big risk. And makeup changes! It’s ever-changing and seasonal, that’s what’s so cool and awesome about it. I look at the way I did my eyebrows back in the day and I’m like, ‘Thank God I didn’t get tattooed then, because I was full on Divine.’ [Laughs] There are some people who love it, and they don’t have to worry about [applying it]. I think if it makes you happy, fuck it, do it. People look at me and ask why I would get tattoos, period. Well, they make me happy, so it works for me.

It’s the same with skincare—you can buy all of the world’s fanciest creams and go get plastic surgery, or whatever floats your boat. But the best skincare to me is internal. Cutting out dairy alone was the best thing I ever did for my skin. I noticed an even more drastic change after I cut dairy out than when I quit smoking! No breakouts, and there was this vibrancy I got. But my favorite skincare product right now that I’m obsessed with is this Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub. I bought it in bulk. I look noticeably clean, it’s great, I love it. The other thing I use to clean are my Unlock-It Makeup Remover Wipes, which are the best for breaking down longwear makeup. And they’re biodegradable, which is great, because I go through makeup wipes like crazy.

We’re in the middle of relaunching our fragrances, so while I wait, I’m wearing Comme des Garçons Wonderwood. I tend to be attracted to darker scents. I’m not a floral girl. But I do like this old fragrance I used to wear called Versace Red Jeans. I have an eBay alert that tells me when it comes back! I think it’s more of a nostalgic association that I have with it because a boyfriend had bought it for me when I was like 16. Now, it just reminds me of falling in love.”

Kat Von D Explains the Remodled High Voltage Tattoo

Kat and her bros (crew) at High Voltage

Arguably the most famous tattoo shop in L.A. is open again for the first time in over a year, and it’s more representative of its leading lady than ever before.

Kat Von D’s High Voltage Tattoo is open for business in its old space once again after being damaged by an electrical fire last October, but this time the ink-slinging celebrity has turned the set of L.A. Inkinto her own personal tattoo wonderland.

“Most of the stuff on the walls is from my own personal collections,” Von D says. “I’ve been collecting skateboards for a really long time, and I feel like there’s a direct correlation between skateboard art, music and tattoo art. A lot of the boards we have were gifted to the shop from skateboarders we’ve tattooed, and the guitars are the same thing. It seems like an understatement to say it’s a dream come true, but it’s pretty cool to be able to tattoo the musicians you’ve looked up to all your life.”

From the merch area back to the bathroom, everything fits the theme at the new High Voltage.

The first thing that greets visitors is a giant chandelier composed of dozens of small glass figures of crucified Jesus. Aside from being a statement piece, it’s also one of the items with the biggest backstory.

“The Jesus chandelier, I went through Hell to get that thing,” Von D says. “There was this glass sculptor in New Orleans, so when I first saw it 10 years ago, I contacted him to see if I could get it. He shipped it, and a lot of the 66 red glass Jesuses showed up broken. He was going to make me some new Jesuses, but then Hurricane Katrina happened and it totally killed his studio. It was totally an ordeal to get it all together, so some of those Jesuses we’ve hand-glued together.”

How many places (not tattoo shops, just anywhere) do you know of with a red glass Jesus chandelier?

Von D isn’t done putting the finishing touches on her remodeled shop just yet, but she already believes the 8-year-old shop is “a million times better than it was before.” The shop now boasts a classic Victorian theme, which is very similar to the famous tattooer’s home.

“It was a really amazing process, and it was healing in a lot of ways,” Von D says. “We had this great opportunity to rebuild it, redesign it, and make it better than what it was to begin with.”

Gallery-quality paintings from the shop’s artists hang in gold frames on the red walls where another shop might have sheets of tattoo flash. Dark wood and thick molding give the entire interior a palatial feel, furthered yet by the throne-like chair toward the back of the room. Much like Von D’s success, the decor is a lot to take in, but the daughter of two Seventh-day Adventist Church missionaries is appreciative for every bit of it.

“I was born in Mexico, and when I say we were dirt poor, I mean our floors were literally made out of dirt,” Von D says. “It’s important to stay humble and remember where you came from. My name is not ‘Kat Von D,’ that’s an abbreviation for my real name (Katherine von Drachenberg). I identify more with my truer self than I do with the TV personality, but I’m appreciative of the platform it gave me to do all of these awesome things.”

A queen needs her throne.

The remodel is appropriate in another way, as the rest of the artists at High Voltage aren’t the ones who many unknowing tourists expected to see in the old shop. While Dan Smith (who now owns Captured Tattoo in Tustin) is one of Von D’s only remaining friends from the TV show, her current crew is comprised solely of tattooers she personally admires.

“I love my tattoo family, they’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” Von D says. “I made sure to hire people who were better than me, because I think being the big fish in a little water is really counterproductive as an artist for growing. Every day I’m pinching myself like, ‘Holy shit, I’m tattooing next to someone who I’m their biggest fan.’ It’s intimidating, but in a good way.”

Royal colors? Check. Gold frames? Check. Giant molding? Check.

Despite the different look and different staff inside of the shop, plenty of tourists and locals alike still stop by the WeHo landmark to see the set of their favorite TLC show. Considering that (as Von D stresses) High Voltage is still a top-notch tattoo shop first and foremost, one might think the visitors would bug her — but that’s not the case.

“We have tour buses that come by the shop on a schedule, which I think is neat,” Von D says. “I know a lot of other shops would probably talk shit or think they’re a joke to a certain degree, but I feel like it’s the opposite for me. If people want to come by, buy a shirt and take pictures, that’s awesome. I celebrate my shop and put pictures and post shit on Instagram all the time because my shop’s badass.”

High Voltage Tattoo is far different from what the film crews saw.

Ultimately, Von D splits her time between tattooing and her many other endeavors, from furthering her makeup line to writing music to keeping up her huge social media presence. She doesn’t plan on becoming one-dimensional anytime soon, and she’ll never be one to rest on her laurels.

“A lot of people define themselves by what’s in their portfolio or who they’ve tattooed, but I’ve stopped caring about that shit a long time ago,” Von D says. “I just want to become the best tattooer I can possibly physically be.”

5 minutes with… Kat Von D

Such exciting news – Kat Von D Beauty, a brand by tattoo artist, Kat Von D has with Sephora is now available in Dubai exclusively at Sephora Middle East. I must admit, I knew about Kat Von D’s beauty brand and see it whenever I’m at Sephora in the US but never came around to trying the products. Since the interview, I started using her products regularly and incredibly obsessed with her shade & light contour palette (that I use over a cream contour kit) and the liquid lipsticks which last all night. If you love your pigment, you will love this range. I spoke to Kat about the region, why it took the brand a while to come here and make up tips.

Hi Kat! How does it feel to be in Dubai?
It’s quite hot but it is exciting to be here, more importantly just excited to bring the brand out here! I’m just excited to see how well people respond. One thing I really noticed even from before getting here is that people in Middle East really embrace a bold eye, and for me this is something that I love doing personally so I know my make up liner will definitely work with the women here.

Is it your first time here in the region?

Why was this the right time to your brand here?
I don’t know, I personally wanted to come here a lot sooner. We’ve been a smash hit in the US for 8 years now but you probably have to ask Sephora Middle East what took them so long! I am just glad to be here

How was the transition from tattoo artistry to cosmetics?
I’ve never actually moved from anything because I want be Salvador Dali, you know Salvador Dali did everything from painting to drawing, a cookbook, designed jewelry, furniture, poetry, all that stuff and that’s what I want to do. So when Sephora approached me about doing a makeup line it was something that really made sense on an artistic level because I felt like I could really express myself in the creative process, and also selfishly create products that I want to use myself.

How do you come up with new products?
Similar seasonal launches like most brands do but unlike most brands I usually take the trend predictions and just throw them out the window. I don’t really care what’s popular or what’s in because I am not really interested in creating anything that’s going to be season. I’d rather have long due in every product that I release, and I think that’s the key – to create something that you really believe in, and for me there’s not one product that I’ve ever made that I wouldn’t personally wear myself- so that’s kind of how we work more on creative.

If you had to choose one product from your range, which is your favorite?
People ask me that all the time and it is really difficult for me to decide because I really do love everything I make, but I love and if I guess I have to choose two, I would say my Tattoo Liner because I use my eye liner everyday and a red lipstick.

You draw the perfect line with your liner, do you have any tips?
I’ve done Youtube tutorials on different approaches – some more artistic than others but I think that a lot of people are scared of liquid eyeliner, if they’ve never used it because it is intimidating. I believe that the tattoo liner is dummy proof and it really is made easy to try out – even for beginners. For me it was like I do want to impress the makeup artist, but I also want it to be very like user friendly. In general I want my mom to be able to use it just as easily as a makeup artist.

You’ve launched the brand in several regions, do you see that there are best sellers that depend on the region?
I am totally surprised and happily shocked that we seem to be continuing to produce heroes. There’s not a weak link in the line. I’m not interested in making any fillers. For me, if you’re not using it, let’s not make it.

I was looking at the shade & light collection, and contouring here is huge – people here love it, do you have any tips for contouring?
You know I’ve done a lot of tutorials, but you really have to contour for your own face shape. I think the biggest mistake on contouring that I’ve seen is that just because it is a very hot trend -It doesn’t mean that you necessarily need it. For example, I have a really small nose, if I were to contour it, it will look even smaller and I think it will look weird.

How important was it for your products to be long lasting and high in pigment?
It is the quality of the makeup line that is a selfish one, because I personally love long wear so to me, I rather create something that I don’t have to touch up all the time. Especially when I was filming the TV show, there’s no room for mistakes, when you are filming really long hours, it was really important for me that it would stand the test of time especially on camera.

What are 5 beauty products that you use on a daily basis?
Obviously, the eyeliner and the red lipstick. I love my foundation because it has just become part of my regime, but I don’t know if I have five things I need. I am a pretty simple person, if I don’t have a brush – I end up just using my hand.  I think it’s mainly in the lipstick!

What are you currently working on?
The Metal crush collection which is coming soon. We just launched it in the US and it really is such an amazing eye shadow formula, and it’s the first time that I’m releasing individual pots, because for me it is important to have a very reasonable price point and that’s why I started to create palettes, because I felt like you get a lot more for the money instead just buying one, That being said, the metal crush collection formula are special, and the most highly pigmented formula that I’ve ever created, and has such an amazing metallic finish. You can use it as a highlighter for your face, you can use it as eyeliner, you can use it for everything, I am excited for you guys to try it!

Colin Magazine Interview

You may remember the super cool Kat Von D of LA Ink and Miami Ink?

Kat is not only one of the world’s most successful female tattoo artist but also a beauty junkie to rank! However, she is careful to point out that she is not a makeup artist when she talks about her label, but just incredibly interested about makeup.

Now finally released Kat Von D beauty  for sale in Scandinavia at Sephora. As we have longed! Despite the fact that until now has not been possible to obtain products in Sweden, there has been a big hype around the brand. All products are vegan and “cruelty free” when Kat herself is vegan and animal lover.

I was honored to interview Kat at the launch event of the Copenhagen, where she tells us how much she loves Sweden and Kent is one out of her absolute favorite band. Kat is a real power woman who has many balls in the air and is a true creator and inspiration to many. She has an exuberant personality and is not afraid to bid on its own. She stands for what she is, which we Colin love!

Where do you find the inspiration to Kat Von D beauty?
I am inspired a lot of patterns in nature and architecture. The names of the products all have a personal connection to me in any way: my cats, music, urban or my fans.

What current trends do you think are the absolute hottest right now?
I’m not a big fan out of trends but I love it when a man or a guy running a full-face makeup with foundation, brows, eye shadow and everything (do not pull the makeup). It screams freedom! I hate the other hand, all this with strobing and baking that abound around on social media right now. I’m the type who does the opposite of what everyone else is doing. The photo also hopes way too much, people blurs their entire faces. I like when you see the little pores! Skin should look like skin.

If you only had to choose a product to use for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It’s tricky, but you can do an awful lot with just one liners! It works on the brows, eyes and lips. Or by the way so I actually did a great look with only one of my lipstick once. But I would probably still say eyeliner. However, would the world be a very sad place if I had to use red lipstick.

Lipstick or mascara?


Which do you think is the most common mistake people make when it comes to makeup?
I do not understand why people use makeup when they do not need, especially when it comes to contouring. I made ​​a video when I contourade my nose once, just to show how it was done for training purposes. I have a very small nose so I got incredibly much shit for that. Yet people go out with the full ‘evening-contouring “when they absolutely do not need it. I really do not understand!

You’re an artist to his fingertips. When you create the best?
I like to create when I’m alone. I do not want to be bothered when I create when I was easily distracted out the surrounding noise.

Tell me about your daily makeup routine!
Every day I put base, eyes and lips. I have dark eyes I drive lighter lips, or darker lips with more natural eye.

Confess your beauty sins, if you have any?
Hmm .. God, how difficult! I do not think I have any, I’m very careful how I use makeup. I probably would however need to wash my brushes more often …
Oh yea! I shall never use my eyelashes and maybe it’s a bit pointless because I buy an awful lot lashes but it feels a little like using a pair of dirty socks.

After the interview I do, and Kat a little lip-tutorial together and laughing until the corners of the mouth ache.
I walk away with a big smile and feel so inspired. What an incredibly beautiful and exuberant woman Kat is!

Pilar Rubio Interview


  • October 13, 2015 //

It seems incredible, but sometimes in life things happen that even in the best of dreams.This week I experienced one of those magical moments .

A few days ago I received the script for a promotion that had to record in ‘ The Ant ‘ . We had to talk about the line-up of Kat Von D who appeared in Spain. In the script we left Kat put Paul and I ….

The first thing I thought was “have been wrong, how will you be with us Kat recording a publi? She’ll be in Los Angeles, I guess … “.


So I called to make sure what was in the script and I said yes. Kat was coming to the set of ‘The Ant ‘ ! How strong! I admire very much and in fact, if you ask me in interviews that who is my ideal woman , the appointed her. I love the way they dress, makeup, his attitude to life, his character, his creativity, his talent, his tattoos, his love for music, so enterprising that is, how faithful is herself and her style … She and my friend Karen Parra are women I admire most in the world.

For the day of recording the publi arrived and took the opportunity to have a little chat with her ​​in the dressing room . It was really nice, it seemed that he knew of life, made ​​me feel very comfortable , it was very close. And with that he turns to meet what I always say: “the bigger, more humble” . As it happened to me with Phil Anselmo, Al Pacino, Dave Mustaine, Angus Young, Robert de Niro, Sylvester Stallone …


Today we live in a time when if you are a certain profession and do it well and with integrity, you can ensure not only professional success, but also in some cases you can get to become a celebrity. I think in the case of Kat Von D has been a mixture of talent, originality and perseverance : it is not only a great tattoo artist, and obviously has a good nose for business, but also has always been a girl who has been faithful his style , I created an image for himself, plays the piano, had a band, designs clothes, 2 TV …


PR: Well Kat, I brought a shirt from one of your collections will sign for me. I bought a couple of years in your store La Brea in LA.

KVD: Of course! I remember this shirt.

PR: Well, if you want to start with the interview (laughs)

KVD: Sure. Hey, by the way, I love the letter you got that tattoo on his wrist. Who will do it?

PR: Thanks! It is a tattooist here called Rodrigo Galvez and is now winning many awards, but I have no large tattoos, written just a couple of things.

KVD: Well, we should not underestimate that, because the writings tattoos are an art, you know, since there was hardly anyone computers crafted and me has much merit it by hand.It sounds simple but it is very difficult, and you can not make any mistakes. In fact, if you see the whole design of the boxes and packing my makeup, I wanted everything I did was, I same hand.

PR: In the United States several years and you wear your makeup line right?

KVD: Yes, 8 years already.


PR: Actually, it is amazing; but when you get involved in the creative process you because I know you’ve been involved in everything, where do you start, the colors, the ‘packaging’, the product …?

KVD: No, the truth is that I always start with an idea. Sometimes it can be any color or inspiration themes. When I see a collection, it’s more like a story for me, for example, for this release we have called the “Mi Vida Loca” collection, consisting of eye shadow and ‘lipstick’, but for me it is a very special collection for It tells a story that is very different from the other collections I have. Sometimes usually easy, but sometimes it is difficult, for example, I love the ‘lipstick’ in orange and when I pulled some of my collections, many people did not like. However, in later seasons it became fashionable when I already had gotten for 3 years … What I mean is that this is what me inspires me, and I do not care much what the predictions of fashion whether or style, because that comes and goes and I want to do things timeless.

PR: To you it has always liked makeup, very young, have you ever thought about a product that does not exist, or missing and you have wanted to invent?

KVD: Yes, of course, in fact I always think of the line up as very selfish, because if I have this opportunity, I want it to be something that inspires me and sometimes it’s not what everyone He likes, but for me it is important that all products are things I do that I will use. And that’s something that makes me proud, there is no product on the line I do not want to use or ashamed about him (laughs).


PR: Yeah, that’s the most important. It’s like you’re wearing a yellow shade, not many people would dare that.

KVD: Yes, I thought that since we are in Spain and the flag is red with yellow, then he should take the shade of that color (laughs).

PR: Well, you is great (laughs). And what is the flagship product of your collection? I know I have affection for them all, but there may be one that is more special for you.

KVD: I think I have “star” in different categories, but in the US for example there is an eyeliner called “Tattoo Liner”, which people love and if it is true that changed perspective consumer had the eyeliner (somehow) because some people do not dare to use eyeliner, but this component makes it so simple and the formula is spectacular then people liked it a lot.Also the foundation, which is long lasting and pretty well covered, the formula flipa me and is something that has worked quite well. It comes in handy for example if you work all day and do not have time to touch.


PR: Well, I do not know if you have your bag here, but wanted to know if there is something you always carry in your bag. A must.

KVD: For my book, is a book of ideas. I have about 20 of these, but never leave home without it, because if I have an idea I like to write it down so you do not forget me. For example, many people do not know, but I love gardening and the other day I came up with some ideas for my garden and began to draw them. They are as different ideas, then I organized by categories as it can be a font a ‘jacket’, a turban, or just something that occurred to me that I have to develop.

PR: But also an artistic profession like yours, that is 24 hours, 7 days a week, maybe something occurs to you when you’re sleeping …

KVD: Sure, even in my dreams I’m working, but as many say: if you are in love with your career is not work, but sometimes it is very difficult to disconnect. That’s one of the reasons why I have no boyfriend (laughs). My art is my boyfriend, and I always say I married the art and I think I can die happy knowing that, and no matter how I feel, will always be there for me (as makeup, music, drawing …) .


PR: And you’re still playing the piano?

KVD: Every day.

PR: And how do you do when you travel?

KVD: Well, I can not take a piano whenever I travel, but I carry my guitar whenever I can.However, the other day in the presentation of Sephora, they surprised me with a piano and began to play immediately … For me it is like being in heaven.

PR: Hey, I know you’re wearing a tattoo of Hollywood, it is one of your favorite cities?

KVD: No, not Hollywood. At that time there was perhaps a landmark in my personal history, but not my favorite despite having something very special city. Prague for example, and architecture of your European cities has far more beautiful (and much more history) in my opinion. I always believe that I was born in an era that was not for me (laughs).


PR: But for example, for a person who wanted to go to Hollywood, what would you recommend them?

KVD: Well, for starters, say that many people have the misconception that Hollywood is Los Angeles, and that’s not true. Hollywood is a very tiny part of Los Angeles, Hollywood got out of the sea, the mountains, more city, the desert … I understand that Hollywood attracts a lot of attention because it has all the celebrities, and partly cool throughout history there are in the city because my neighbor’s house, for example, was the home of Lucille Ball, then imagine. I like that part of the story but I feel that Los Angeles has much more to offer than Hollywood.

PR: And is there any restaurant you could recommend us?

KVD: Well what happens is that I am vegan, and fortunately in Los Angeles have many good choices and offer plenty of vegan food, but my favorite is called “Real Food Daily”, and there is another called “Crossroads” I but more like love for parties, as catering. But both are delicious.


PR: And you favorite club, to hear live music?

KVD: Not exactly a club, but do you know Magic Castle?

PR: It’s like a private club behind Hollywood, right?

KVD: Yes accurate. You must invite someone to be able to enter. The kitchen is the best, it’s my favorite place in all of Los Angeles. The next time you come to LA you come with me, is something you’ll never forget (laughs).

PR: Well, and as I know you love music and you play well, tell me a couple of groups that are your favorite or that you like a lot

KVD: Well, I always listen to classical music a lot (laughs), but there is a group I’ve been hearing a lot lately called IAMX, the singer lives between Los Angeles and Germany, and I think that’s my new favorite band

PR: And the best concert you went?

KVD: Mmmm, because this month I went to one of Foo Fighters and had never seen them live … it was amazing. Well, Dave Grohl is my friend, I’ve done some tattoos, but did not know who had an accident in Sweden and broke his leg. Then they built a chair and even with the plaster was playing on stage … wow! I was impressed; they played like 3 hours.

PR: Hey and do you always maquillas you or does someone else?

KVD: Yes, I always maquillo. I do not like it when someone else makes up me and I think makeup is a very intimate thing, except that my style is very different from normal and if I do it someone else will do it totally different; I love me greatly exaggerated eyebrows and very concrete things and if I change the makeup, they’re going to change the whole style, then I’d rather do.


PR: And a beauty tip that you give to the girls of your daily ritual, what would it be?

KVD: There are many, but some people think that because you’ll lick it a way to see more beautiful, but more important is self-confidence. I always say that is something that is within you. Because I love makeup, I love to wear it and switch style, but my favorite look is when I do not have even a drop of makeup and even see me as a girl, I do not care, because I like it.

PR: And tell me a little about your clothing line.

KVD: Right now I’m not doing laundry. I did it for 2 or 3 seasons until I got involved in the vegan world and have learned much in the process of production that want to investigate more and change. That’s important for me to do things well and although I love and I also loved making shoes, now I’m focusing more on makeup.


PR: And who would you not have tattooed tattoo?

KVD: I always get that question, but I think I do not care so much about the person, if not the concept of tattooing.

PR: How would you know who you have not met?

KVD: Beethoven (laughs).


PR: O if you had to choose two companions to have a perfect dinner, good conversation, who would you choose?

KVD: I love people of other times (laughs) … I think I would choose to Edith Piaf, Beethoven and Nietzsche.

And that was it. Needless to say, he is a charming and charismatic woman , and I’ve enjoyed talking with her.

I hope you do too you enjoyed the interview!
