Famed tattoo artist and television personality Kat Von D announced she bought a home in Indiana where she hopes to retire one day, slamming the “tyrannical government overreach” and “ridiculous taxing” in her home state of California.

In a Facebook post Thursday, the former “LA Ink” star said she is not selling her home or tattoo studio in Los Angeles but that she bought another home in Vevay for her family to visit so her son can enjoy the freedom and simplicity that comes with small-town living.

“Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA,” she wrote, “but with all that’s been taking place in California, with terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so much more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day.

“So, no, I’m not closing my shop in LA,” she added. “We aren’t selling our home. But we will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house.”

Ms. Von D also shared a picture of herself standing in front of the home with a sign that read, “sold.”

“It’s official!” she wrote. “Vevay, Indiana here we come!”

Ms. Von D joins a growing list of business owners and celebrities fleeing the Golden State since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, citing overregulation and overtaxation.
