For Kat Von D: Have you ever composed a melody in the wake of a dream or nightmare? Or you have drawn or tatuado.tus dreams or nightmares?

The ideas of art and music come to me constantly. But all I could wish is to have a brainstorming more often!

Hello I would like to know how it started in the world of tattoo and if you had more difficult by the fact of being a woman and Latino, a greeting.

Everyone faces challenges, it girl, boy, Latin or whatever. The important thing is to focus on the initial goal. Sometimes it can be difficult but at the end of the day outside criticism does not really matter!

If you could choose another career, what would you be doing and why?

I could not do anything else. I think I’m designed to create. And that’s the best format.

Hi Kat! I’m looking forward to meeting your makeup line. My question is: if you want to feel sexy and you could only choose a product of your line … What would?

No need to feel sexy makeup because really what you need is confidence and is something you should find within yourself first. Makeup can only enhance the sensuality in you.

10 Kat, when there would be the possibility that’re for South America? Paraguay awaits you with open arms. Many kisses!

Surely soon. Paraguay kisses!

11 Hello! I have a question about eye makeup. I am a girl who has the fixed eyelid very marked and that makes my eyelid practically no display. So when I maquillo with shadows on the eyelid they are sometimes not much appreciated. Advices for makeup this area well and get a good finish? Thank you!!

I recorded a makeup tutorial using eye shadow + illuminator in the outline that I think can help you. It’s on my Youtube channel .

12 Kat, a big hello, have an amazing brand cosmetics, fame, beauty, love I guess, but … Is there something in the life of Kat Von D (humans) that still missing? I send you a kiss Violet Smell ? PD.

Yes, I love to see the day when it is finished with unnecessary cruelty to animals in factory farms and in laboratory tests. That would help in the recovery of the environment and ending hunger in the world. I know it seems impossible in a world where people do not care, but I believe that human beings can succeed. I do not care contribute in the best way possible until the day I die.

13 Why do I have to venture into the world of tattooing?

Eek! It is a difficult question to answer quickly. I wrote a book called High Voltage Tattoo . Has a specific chapter can help you.

14 Kat, my name is William and I follow since I was 10, now I have 16 and enchant me and I really admire, my question is, What is living in Los Angeles, it is as beautiful as they say? Jat I love you!

Los Angeles is beautiful from many viewpoints. But it really is a personal preference. I am inspired by its wonderful climate, its artistic communities and diversity of people there.

15 At any time you return to Spain again after this trip?

 Of course! How else he would not be able to continue hearing the Prado Museum?

16 Hi Kat! Do you think people are more similar made to be together? I ask this question thinking about my love and I, because we are very very similar and I’ve always told the story that opposites attract

True love never can be limited by rules or expectations.

17 Your cosmetic line is designed for filling with people with tattoos? I such as lipstick purple?

Absolutely. My makeup line was created to give people tools to express themselves creatively through makeup, but it has nothing to do with being tattooed to take. My mother takes my line of makeup and seems to have nothing to do with me. Haha!

18 What do you think is the most expensive tattoo or did it take to do? You remember who did it?

I usually like most tattooed in 3 or 4 hours. Some tattoos are more intense and may need more sessions, but ultimately works.

19 Hello kat on your beginning as a tattoo artist who has enseñadoa you tattoo?, Have you made any progress?

Since then, he has learned many talented artists. I have been fortunate to work closely with them. But no, I never learned by the traditional method, it has been a self-taught process.

20 What or who inspires you when you need strength or energy to accomplish something?

The idea that there is always opportunity to improve.

21 Hi Kat! Welcome to Spain, I am a big fan of yours from Miami Ink, whenever she saw my dream was that tatuaras me, so my question is why would you do a tour by Spain to tattoo? Thank you. XoXo Espe

22 Artistic period that you prefer? And why?

Her time of Rembrandt y Carravaggio.

23 I would ask him, what his inspirations are for personal look? and tell you that I love your TV show

My inspiration comes from anywhere. I am constantly inspired by music, architecture, the elements of nature. But far from my personal aesthetic, I have to say my favorite is the Victorian era.

24 Kat hello. I am a big fan of your programs you enchant me ….. even if you do not I’ll never know, so yes, I hope to see you in the afterlife. For you make me a tattoo because I do not have any … ironic no? As I also know that this is not going to get there nunca..pero I leave my question …. beautiful. You wish to become a painter instead of tatuadora prestigious and your paintings were worth a fortune .. Thanks, I

Thank you for your comment and for your question. As for my art, I know that many people know me primarily for television programs have focused on my job as a tattoo artist, but tattooing is not the only art form that fills me. I enjoy painting sometimes, I’m not an expert in oil, but absolutely adore painting and I do every day. But in response to your question, I can not imagine selling my drawings. Most of the time I spend on it is a way to thank the people who inspire me free. But my line of makeup is probably the easiest way to acquire a piece of my work, because in every aspect of my makeup line have poured 100% of myself.

25 Hi Kat, I wonder What is for you the key to being an entrepreneur, innovative, while maintaining the freshness and sweetness with which you handle on a day to day work?

I’m sure it’s different for many people, but for me it’s easy to keep your feet on the ground and be humble if you surround yourself with people who support you and love you. As they say, although I have many acquaintances, I really have many friends. But the few that I have are the strongest, honest and inspiring people I know. And that includes my father.

26 Very good! My question is: Have you ever considered offering a range of low cost products KVD? Unfortunately not all have the ability to pay € 20 for lipstick, I understand you have to pay a brand and quality but I think if you want to reach all kinds of people also would be nice to think that we are not wealthy and we It struggles to make ends meet. A kiss and hopefully a reflection.

Since the beginning of katvond Beauty, affordable prices have been personally a major factor. That is one reason why most eye shadows are we produce palette, which makes them more affordable when compared with individual shadows as the most selling brands for about $ 20. As for the lipsticks, we have realized that with the collections of Christmas is the best time to launch mini games lipsticks at an affordable price. That way people can try more than one tone at a lower price. But, lately there are products whose formulations make it difficult to lower their prices to the price range of a perfume, without sacrificing quality. But looking back, when purchases are made, if you buy one of our Everlasting Liquid lipsticks, a tube will last months because the formula is long-lasting!

27 If you were a cartoon and always had to wear the same clothes, hair and makeup what would they be?

I’m already a cartoon.

28 Kate Encantada. I have a tattoo that made me a friend who was learning 15 years ago. It is ugly and poorly made. Does it hurt more tattoo on a tattoo? Can I hide completely? I can not send pictures to show you. A greeting. Kisses

The covers can be trick, but if you choose an experienced tattoo artist can help you perfectly. Good luck.

29 What inspired you to create the product packaging? Is beautiful!

34 Are you vegan? What benefits have you noticed in your body? Do you feel better?

Of course. Being vegan is the best decision I ever made after alcochol not drink. The benefits I have noticed are improved skin tone, stronger nails, healthier hair, better sleep cycles, more energy … just to name a few that deal with the physical aspect. The most important thing is also helping the environment.
