Kat Von D has been vocal about her opinions on California’s government. In an Instagram post, she said, California has “terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so much more corruption” (via Business Insider). Those are just some of the reasons why Von D wants to move away from the state.
In addition to that, Von D wants her son to have a better environment growing up. In 2018, Von D married artist and musician Rafael Reyes — more popularly known as Leafar Seyer — and they share a 3-year-old boy named Leafar Von D Reyes. In her post about purchasing a home in Indiana, Von D said that it was an ideal place as they wanted to “plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where my son can be free to play.” Aside from closing High Voltage Tattoo, the artist also sold her shares from her makeup line, Kat Von D Beauty, per ET Online.
It seems that Von D has been preparing for the big move for a while so she could focus more on her family and raise her child in a more serene environment in Indiana where her new home sits on 10.6 acres of land (via New York Post).
