After receiving backlash for her public baptism video, Kat Von D opened up about her decision to abandon witchcraft and embrace Christianity.
Katherine von Drachenberg, 40, a tattoo artist, was recently interviewed by Relatable podcast presenter Allie Beth Stuckey.
After rethinking her beliefs, she admitted that she had abandoned spiritualism.
The LA Ink actress added that she is a follower of Jesus and underlined her commitment to this passion never fades away.
Born in Mexico, Kat was reared by her parents as a missionary Christian. She said that she was raised in a Christian home.
When she was six, her family uprooted and relocated to the United States, where the actress has admitted she eventually went astray after developing a freethinking mindset that prompted her to question everything.
At the age of 14, she ran away from home and developed a strong dislike for the religion.
Kat said in her twenties, she became interested in new-age ideas. She began attending meditation camps, tarot card readings, and spiritual retreats as part of her spiritual practice.
Just before the lockdown in 2020, Kat was left miserable and realized that this hadn’t worked for her, so she was compelled to reevaluate her viewpoint. She was reviewing her spiritual practices and philosophies.
Kat started spending her Sundays glued to sermon videos. Her insatiable appetite for knowledge ultimately led her to the Bible. Shortly after, she threw out all her books on witchcraft, yoga, and meditation.
The LA Ink star said she realized she no longer needed these props and started to see them as a hindrance.
She said that her faith in Jesus is her life’s work. That light won’t be going out any time soon. The more she finds out, the more thrilled she is. She also feels more at ease about the events unfolding in the globe and within my marriage.
Kat, who regularly attends church, was baptized in October, and she and many of her tattooed friends posted a video of the service online.
The video showed Kat being baptized by immersion, and a cross appeared over the text. Describing it as one of the most important days of her life, she noted that publicly revealing this was her way of setting some things right.
