Former Tattoo Artist Kat Von D Baptized After Renouncing Occult

By Movieguide® Staff

Former tattoo artist Kat Von D shared a video of her baptism following a long journey of personal transformation after she renounced the occult and witchcraft last year. 

She captioned the video with a cross.

“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,” the pastor said before submerging a white robe-clad Von D.

Von D joyfully hugged him as she emerged from the water.

Von D’s friends attended the baptism, and the video shows several tattooed, pierced people reading from hymnals and worshipping.

Movieguide® previously reported on Von D’s decision to throw away all materials that celebrated witchcraft and the occult:

“I’ve always found beauty in the macabre, but at this point, I just had to ask myself what is my relationship with this content? And the truth is, I just don’t want to invite any of these things into our family’s lives, even if it comes disguised in beautiful covers, collecting dust on my shelves,” she said.

She opened her post, reflecting, “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.”

Because of that realization, Von D went through her library and threw out every book on witchcraft, magic, the macabre, and tarot cards because they “don’t align” with her anymore.

In September last year, Von D wore a hat featuring a cross, as Movieguide® reported. 

“My favorite hat of all time,” Von D captioned the Instagram story of her dark chapeau, which clearly displays a cross.

She first began changing her lifestyle in 2020 when she sold her beauty brand and began covering her tattoos. 

In December 2020, she and her family moved to Indiana to escape California’s “terrible policies” and “tyrannical government.”

“…right now, it’s never been more clear to me that there is a spiritual battle taking place, and I want to surround myself and my family with love and light,” she said when she threw away her occult books.

She concluded the post by encouraging her followers to make “meaningful changes” in their lives. 

“For her, that means engaging in the spiritual battle by throwing out books that bring darkness into her home and instead surrounding her family with ‘love and light,’” Movieguide® reported. 

Fans celebrated Von D’s faith in the comments.

“This is huge! She knows the followers this will cost her, and I’m so proud of her for not caring what people think of it. God bless you and your family Kat!
I’ve watched you since I was a little kid and you’re honestly the last person I ever thought would be doing something like this, but I hope that just let’s everyone know that God can call on ANYONE from ANY background or lifestyle. God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called! You go girl! For the trolls who are mad about this, stay mad, HIS glory can not be stopped. Have a great day,” one person wrote.


Someone else wrote: “So incredibly proud of you. Heaven is rejoicing. So sad I wasn’t there in person but I am always cheering you on no matter the distance!!! Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY. But we all, with unveiled face, be holding as in a mirror the GLORY of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor 3:17-18”
