Kat Von D has completely covered her tattoos in solid black ink after she converted to Christianity.

The renowned tattoo artist and entrepreneur, whose real name is Katherine von Drachenberg, has taken a significant step in her spiritual journey by revealing her baptism into the Christian faith.

This revelation comes a year after she publicly renounced witchcraft and the occult.

The 41-year-old is celebrated worldwide for her tattoo artistry and has made a name for herself as one of the most recognizable tattoo artists globally.

Watch Kat Von D's baptism below:

Her talents extend beyond the tattoo parlor, as she has ventured into television with appearances on reality shows like Miami Ink and LA Ink, pursued a music career, and even launched her well-known vegan makeup brand, KVD Beauty.

Drachenberg, who is married to Rafael Reyes and shares a son with him, has also been undergoing significant personal changes.

She has been covering up hundreds of her tattoos, describing the experience as "extremely refreshing." In one social media post, she mentioned that some of her tattoos were "scribbled all over [her] leg" and were acquired during a period when she was not sober.

She shared that she replaced these designs with solid black ink, appreciating the sleekness and simplicity it brings to her life.

"Feels so good to finally cover up so many of the tattoos I got back when I used to drink," she wrote. "Those tattoos meant nothing to me but landmarks in dark times, and I'm so lucky to have the best blackout artist @hoode215 cover them up for me!

"Now my arm looks so nice and clean, and the portrait of my Father stands out even more."

On October 4, Drachenberg shared her religious journey with her 9.4 million Instagram followers.

In a video posted on her Instagram page, the tattoo artist, known for her signature gothic style, captioned the post with a simple cross emoji. The video depicted a church ceremony attended by her inked friends, where the star was seen wearing a plain white robe as she underwent immersion baptism.

During the ceremony, the pastor proclaimed: "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."

Following this declaration, Drachenberg was briefly submerged in water before emerging to embrace the minister, while the congregation applauded her decision.

Her baptism marks a significant transformation in her spiritual journey, a year after she candidly shared her "spiritual battle" and desire to change her religious beliefs and lifestyle.

In a previous Instagram post, she shared an image of books related to witchcraft, tarot, and the occult that she was discarding, stating: "I don’t know if any of you have been going through changes in your lives right now, but in the last few years, 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."
