Reality TV Star Converts To Christianity
Famous tattoo artist and reality TV star Kat Von D has made big changes in her life, starting with her recent baptism as a Christian. On Tuesday, the 41-year-old shared a video montage of her baptism on Instagram, simply captioning it with a cross emoji.
In the video, a pastor can be heard saying, “Katherine von Drachenberg, upon your profession of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in obedience to His Divine command, I baptize you, my sister, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Kat can then be seen wearing a white robe and emerging out of the water with a big smile on her face, hugging the pastor.
This decision comes after the celebrity, whose real name is Katherine von Drachenberg, publicly announced last year that she was renouncing her previous embrace of the occult and witchcraft. In July this year, she also shared on Instagram that she had gone through her entire library and got rid of books that did not align with her newfound faith.
In her post, she wrote, “I’ve come to some pretty meaningful realizations — many of them revolving around the fact that I got a lot of things wrong in my past.” She continued, “Today, I went through my entire library, and threw out books that just don’t align with who I am and who I want to be. 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?”
Kat also mentioned the “spiritual battle” she believes is happening and wanted to surround herself and her family with “love and light.” The photos accompanying her post showed tarot cards and books about witchcraft.
She also made it clear that her post was not meant to judge or shame anyone who may be interested in such things, but rather to share her own personal journey. She ended her message by sending “extra love to everyone out there” and hoping that people are making meaningful changes in their lives as well.
Kat Von D rose to fame in the early 2000s when she starred in the reality TV show “Miami Ink,” a series about a tattoo shop in Miami. She later starred in her own show “LA Ink,” where she was the main tattoo artist and owner of the shop.
She is known for her distinctive style, often wearing dark and macabre clothing, and promoting a similar aesthetic in her work. However, it seems that Kat is now embracing a different kind of beauty and has chosen to leave her past behind.
Fans and followers of Kat Von D have been showing their support and love for her new journey, with many sending her congratulatory messages on her baptism video.
