Kat Von D sans tattoos

August 12th, 2009 // 259 Comments

Considering some of you would rather stab yourself in the eye than look at Megan Fox’s tattoos because you’re 90 and/or love men, I figured I’d post this pic of an ink-free Kat Von D demonstrating her new tattoo concealer for Sephora. Personally, I’m cool with her either way. Unless a woman’s tattoo tries to bite my penis off, who cares? Also, I hope my open-mindedness will be returned when they realize I have the Bat-symbol on my chest – in finger paint. That’s right, ladies, witty and an artist.

UPDATE: Reader Elena sent in a non-airbrushed pic of Kat with the concealer on, and uh, wow, that looks like an amazing product. If you like eczema.

    @123 – No one and I mean NO ONE with the last name Patel bangs anything often enough to recognize ANYTHING. All they get is a dvd of Slumdog millionaire and a pre-arranged marriage.

    @143 “but anyone who covers themselves head to toe, especially women, are just trying to cover up how much they hate their looks”

    wha the hell? .. wow, really? ever stop to think that many people
    consider tattooes as art? … that was just a nasty saying…
    to have many tattoes, “especially women” doesn not mean
    low selfesteem or whatever…

  11. Devan

    Some of you people should maybe watch the show or get a clue before giving your input. The ads are for her “sinner” and “saint” perfumes which is why they used special concealer to cover up all the tattoos on the front/sides of her body in the one. If they photoshopped her body after… who cares.
    And the idiot who said women who cover their body head to toe with tattoos are ashamed of their looks? Are you serious? The woman is a tattoo artist! You really think that has anything to do with it? Man some people are stupid.

  12. Just Bored

    that’s scary!!!

  13. etc

    That’s NOT her body. And no, not b/c the covered/airbrushed her tattos, but b/c she’s twice the size of that. Geesh, sure, no photoshop.

  14. jane23

    why would a tattoo artist give you concealer
    isn’t that like a nutritionist giving you a donut

    it’s not good for her business dummy!
    The whole point of a tattoo is your proud and don’t care what others think this totally defeats the purpose especially PROMOTED by a tatoo artist
    here let me give you a tattoo but in case you regret it as soon as you get home or have classy things to do cover it up and pretend you didn’t do it….

  15. BBBlacksheep

    Why do the hatres even bother to read about someone they don’t like? That is just moronic and so are your ridiculous opions because you don’t know what you’re talking about!
    Her tattoos aren’t “chicken scratchings” or “self mutilation” most of them are done by the best tattooers in the world.
    Tattooed people don’t discriminate against cleanskins so shut the F@#K UP!

  16. self mutilator

    I just love the commenters who don’t get this blog ..they make my day just as much as the best joke or slam.

  17. Brooke

    Oh god! Nikki Sixx, come on, you could sooo do better.

  18. honeybee

    Proof that any woman can be a knock out with some hair, make up and photoshop….guess the real campaign for beaut never took off

  19. Grim

    Kat Von D looks just as delectable sans tattoos…Go figure.

    That’s what diaries are for. Hell, even artwork. ACTUAL artwork, you know, like on paper. Why put it on skin? So you can show it off and make a statement, that’s why. And what is that statement? I am cool and deep and edgy (aka stupid, shallow, insecure and attention seeking)
    I am not dissing you (personally), and you might be for real, but I have known/know people covered in tattoos and every one of them do it /done it for attention.
    Half of them were too ashamed to ever admit it, but eventually did to me, or at least hinted at it. You can see evidence of it all over the net. People SECRETLY admitting they regret their tattoos, but feel like they can’t admit it or get them removed because it would make them look stupid…(that’s if they can even AFFORD TO.) Just like all those Vegans who PRETEND to be all about the animals, but secretly eat meat. I am talking the hard-core, diss everyone, PETA mad vegans. Who then admit that “shh, don’t tell anyone but had some meat last night/ occasionally/ etc “ALL HYPOCRITES!!!

  21. 127 Sounds like someone who’s covered himself in ink and got a tad bit defensive. Not my problem. I have no issues with ink. It’s just a fact of life that as you age the tats stretch & sag with skin, turn blue and warped, look like hell. Sexy at 25, hell at 55.

    The Xray techs around me that HAD BODIES COVERED IN TATS (there were quite a few) were grossed out by how these geriatrics looked. They were shocked. I think it never occurred to them that they’d be 80 one day with their stretched, deteriorating tats. Skin sags with age and ink fades. It’s a fact. What’s sexy at 22 is a wharped faded blob by 70. Life happens. *shrug*

    C’est la vie!

    All three are photoshopped. The third shot makes absolutely no sense. Why would there be red applied?

  24. Beavis

    You’re all going to look like shit when you’re old- every single one of you. Whether you have a wrinkled, tattooed-ass, or just a plain old wrinkled-ass.

    As for you all mighty X Ray techs, congratulations on your DeVry graduation. Those old people that you’re judging, yeah they don’t give a fuck what you think.

    @ 170:
    - Yeah, art knows no other medium other than paper.
    - Not everyone who has tattoos has them in highly visible areas, so they must only be seeking attention from the idiot X Ray techs.
    - I’m sure you must be saying to yourself, “why does everyone come out to me!?” but that doesn’t mean you’re fucking Dr. Phil, you must just come off as a good fudge-pack.

  25. Schniby

    99.9% of you complaining about her would hit it

  26. Jamie Leece

    Everyone online acts like they’re Hugh Hefner in the 70s, so successful with women they’ll turn down pussy unless the girl is some sort of flawless goddess. I’m sure 90% of you would be damned grateful to get someone like her.

  27. She was NOT doing the photos for a concealer people! It was for a PERFUME that was supposed to be like a “naughty and nice” type deal.

  28. Brooke

    So, I have her tattoo concealer because I bought it to cover up the small pink diamond tattoo that I have behind my right ear (per request from my mother) for my wedding. Um, the shit doesn’t work THAT well. When trying to see how it’d look by trying it on a small heart I have tattooed on the inside of my right ankle, it only made it look like a blurred black blob. It did NOT make it look invisable whatsoever. Although it makes a kick ass concealer b/c it’s heavier, the stuff does NOT cover tattoos at all.

  29. misty

    so im just trying to figure out if the claim is the unphotoshopped pictures make her look like hse has ezcema, how come its like.. the originally nontattooed parts of her htat is red nehow? her chest is all red but she has no tattoos there…

  30. Packinwood

    She looks much better without the tats. Not like a trashy trailer park chic.

  31. Lori

    WOW…some of you people have serious, serious issues. SO judgemental..I guess you are perfect? You must LOVE what you see in the mirror everyday. Someone called her fat? Really…The saddest part of all..is that MOST of you are disgusting fuckers…cutting down KAt? She is an unbelievable artist..most of you are about as intelligent as a cockroach with down snydrome. I mean, I can’t even express how miserable, envious and just so DISGUSTING most of you are. Ewwwwww!!!!

  32. Lori

    and before any one of you ass wipes make a comment..I know syndrome was spelled wrong…I typed fast…wanting to get my comment out..due to the fact that I was so appalled at what I was reading….

  33. Rachel

    OMG YOU FUCKING RETARDS.
    She’s promoting her “Saint” fragrance, and for the ad, she decided she’d look saintly without the tats. She never put out a tattoo concealer. Jesus Christ on the cross.

  34. NVG

    The last unedited photo is not a finished product!
    Obviously, they still need to rub it even.

  35. Rachel

    Also, she isn’t promoting a tattoo concealer.

  36. Avery

    If the worst thing I have to worry about at 80 is a stuck-up x-ray tech thinking my tats look gross, I will consider my life a blinding success. I guarantee my adult diaper is gonna be a fuck of a lot more embarrassing.

  37. michelle

    Ahhh, speaking of embarrassing..may I remind you that you sets your sights sky high as a (drum roll please!) X ray tech??? I somehow think this career may not be a lifelong calling?

  38. adam

    love you kat you are so fucken beautiful with or without your tattoos

  39. Kry

    Her concealer doesn’t work, I tried a glob of it on my wrist and it didn’t cover shit. She must’ve had to sit though hours of people layering the shit on her.

  40. Crystal

    OMG!! LOL… I cant believe someone actually said she was FAT?? WTF are you looking at? Shes lost so much weight she is almost skin and bones!!!!!!!!! She looks FAB in this picture! Dont be a fn hater! If you dont like tattoos then why the fuck are you even leaving a comment about her? Yes she looks great without the tats. But with them makes who she is as a person!

  41. Sarah

    Let’s get this straight, Fish (and everybody else).
    The products for which she was modeling were two perfumes called Sinner and Saint, NOT any sort of concealer.
    For the “Sinner” perfume, they wanted her in her normal tatted-up form.
    For the “Saint” perfume, they wanted her cleaned up and more “nice-girl” looking.
    She was NOT advertising concealer in this ad!

  42. robert

    a tattoo artist selling concealer is a lot like a whore selling virginity.

  43. ughIdiots

    Uh 185, she is. A while back she was talking about on (LA INK, or one of them, MIAMI, or LA) concealers. And told the world she was making one. And there’s video of her promoting it. Just look up Kat Von D concealer. Before you bitch out, realize. Also.

    She was never really that pretty to me. And she needs stop getting work done on her face. I thought she was fine the way she was.

  44. Kry

    On LA Ink she said they were using her tattoo concealer, the Kat Von D line carried by Sephora. It also shared the whole Sinner and Saint thing. Sheesh. She’s advertising it on the show, but not with the ads.

  45. Justin Edwards

    Shes an amazing petite woman (if you’re into that, I like a woman with meat on her bones) but nonetheless for a skinny woman she is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L I love the tattoos and I love the person that she is so if she has them or doesnt have them it doesnt matter. She’s a fox either way. she’s one of the most genuine original-thinking creative just MOST AWESOME person ive ever met. she’s really amazing, especially if you’re open-minded like I am (It IS 2009 people, if you dont like people like her, you’re in the wrong time period GET WITH THE TIMES…SEE PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY ARE INSIDE you morons. I LOVE KAT!!!

  46. me

    I really have no opinion of the girl, I’ve never watched that show and I dont quite understand what the big deal is about her. I just saw this and wanted to say to all the people complaining about heavily tattooed girls and saying its a ‘waste’ of thier beauty or stuff along those lines… did it ever occur to you that maybe people like you arent the type of guys that they WANT to attract? People need to start realising that people who look ‘alternative’ actually tend to live somewhat alternative lifestyles and aren’t just dressing a certain way because they think it’s ‘hot’.

  47. S.

    It amazes me to read how stupid so many people are in the world and commenting on this website.

    Let’s use our brain here for a minute, okay.

    Obviously, the “red parts” of her skin are her normal skin color where she has no tattoos, therefore no concealer concealing anything. The reason they didn’t cover her entire body with concealer is because there is photoshop…and they knew they could blend everything in photoshop.

    There is nothing wrong with photoshop especially when they are trying to do an ad for perfume and one is sinner and one is saint and the whole idea was to make her look like a good girl for one of them.

  48. LILY

    KAT LOOKS WAY BETTER WITH OUT HER TATS BUT…SHE STILL SUPER KOO

  49. feelcreamy

    I <3 tattoos and have a few but if that’s how I am going to look afterwards, I’ll pass and I sort of doubt you have a shade for women of color. Sad cause I do like Ms. Von D very much but you lost me with this photo, no…just no. why would anyone want to go out the house looking like that, the photoshop is like false advertisement. utter FAIL!

  50. Joanna

    OK… Not to you jerks out there: If the only way you can get your jollies is by ridiculing how somebody looks (fat, thin, smal tits, big tits, tats, no tats) then you should go stick your head in the nearest welding arc. SHUT UP ALREADY!!!
    The woman has many tattoos, she likes them all. Good for her. None of your business.
    K.V.D. is NOT FAT. What kind of stupid bimbo-loving anorexic encouraging neanderthal do you have to be to think she’s fat??? Honestly. Are you dating a stick? A hand railing? Are you jealous because shes not bulimic and actually has hips? BACK OFF. People like you are the people that make young teens kill classmates due to teasing.
    As for her being trash… honestly people. Try not to show the racism. Mexican, French, Native American, WHAT-EVER! She’s American. So shove it. Also: you are mistaken. She grew up for 4 or 5 years in Mexico. her family is from Argentina. :P
    So shut your dirty, gossip-mongering mouths and learn to be decent human beings.

    There’s a good saying that applies to this: “The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.”
