Kat Von D Leaving California Due to ‘Tyrannical Government Overreach’

Tattoo artist Kat Von D announced she bought a home in Indiana where she hopes to retire one day, because of “tyrannical government overreach” and “ridiculous taxing” in her home state of California.

In a Facebook post Thursday, the Mexican-born 38-year-old said she bought another home in Vevay, Indiana 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, 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 my son can be free to play …” she said.

The star also clarified that she’s “not closing” her tattoo shop in Los Angeles.

“But we will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house,” she said.

Within the hour, the tattoo artist shared a picture of herself standing in front of the home with a sign that read, “sold.”

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

She bought the historic Schenck Mansion in the small town Vevay, populated by 1,683 people, located just over 100 miles southeast of Indianapolis with plans to open ‘a little tattoo shop’.

According to Fox News, the Television star joins a handful of others that have recently expressed opposition to California’s leadership.

Most recently, “Growing Pains” alum Kirk Cameron has been hosting peaceful caroling protests against Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom‘s stay-at-home order amid the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News reports.

Similarly, Justine Bateman was recently spotted signing a petition to recall the governor.
