We previously reported that the former tattoo artist and “L.A. Ink” star Kat Von D had announced that she was abandoning witchcraft to become a devout Christian. Now, Von D is revealing that she is often called “demonic” because of her physical appearance despite her devout Christian faith.
‘I Get Called Demonic A Lot’
While appearing on Theo Von’s “This Past Weekend” podcast last month, Von D opened up about her strong Christian faith.
“Modern-day Christians are so used to being surrounded by people that look the same as them,” said Von D, 41. “When someone like me comes into the mix, it’s like, ‘Oh, wait, this is demonic.’ … I get called demonic a lot. ‘You’re serving two masters.’ I’m like, I don’t think any of that is accurate.
“I don’t think there’s any dress code to be a Christian,” she continued. “But I get it a lot. … [After I posted] my last post, I thought it was a very cool modest image of me in a dress and some funny shoes, and the comments are just hilarious.”
Von D’s ‘Relationship With God’
Von D came forward as a Christian back in October when she shared a powerful video of herself being baptized. Since then, however, Von D has felt like she’s been under a microscope when it comes to public scrutiny of her religious beliefs.
“It’s such an intimate and personal thing. My relationship with God is my own,” Von D said. “I’ve never really felt like I belonged anywhere. Especially now, I think being public with my faith puts you into like this microscopic, critical tank.
“At the end of the day, you know, my relationship is with God, not you,” she added. “I think because people have a hard time understanding [my] aesthetic and pairing that with something … like Christianity. I don’t understand why people don’t see how close-minded that is. Why would you think that you have to look a certain way to have an understanding of the Bible?”
‘I Paise God’
Von D has been open about how her faith has helped her to move away from the wild lifestyle that she previously enjoyed.
“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 said. “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.”
This was a reference to the books about witchcraft that Von D once studied.
“The last few years for me have been so rough behind the curtains,” she concluded. “I don’t share [it] all … But I’m still going to live in a state of gratitude. The world could be falling apart, and I’m still, like, I praise God.”

Von D’s story serves as a reminder to all of us that one can never judge a book by its cover. Just because Von D looks the way she does, it does not mean that she can’t be a good Christian woman!
