Kat Von D, 25, the head-strong tattooist, who few months back walked out of ‘Miami Ink’ to launch her own show, ‘LA Ink’, on TLC, is looking forward to set Guinness World Record, and she’s imploring anyone who’s interested to help her do it. She is aiming at doing 400 tattoos in 24 hours.
So, we have been talking about setting the record for the most tattoos done in a 24 hour period by one person, since the Miami Ink days, and FINALLY we are gonna do it, here, in Los Angeles, at my tattoo shop!
Yes, as Katherine Von Drachenberg a.k.a Kat Von D has always shown up as an ideal and adventurous female today, with this announcement at her blog on myspace she has proved it again.
As she has mentioned earlier the record making tattooing session will be held at her tattoo shop i.e. High Voltage Tattoo/LA Ink, 1259 N. La Brea Ave., W. Hollywood, CA 90038; on Friday i.e. 14th December at 12 noon and ends at the exact same time the following day.
As per the rules of Guinness Board, the size of the tattoo will not be less than 2.25 x 2 inches, it will have a minimum of two colors and people under the age of 18 cannot get tattooed, moreover, who are getting tattooed must carry their ID.
Thus, she is going to do an ‘LA’ logo tattoo in two colors – Black and Grey that is approved by Guinness on the people who wants to be part of this event.
Appointments are not required to be part of this event as Kat will tattoo on a first come, first serve basis and will charge $20 for each tattoo.
ALL PROCEEDS go to Vitamin Angels…an awesome group of people who help stop kids in Africa from going blind.
(Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization that provides supplements to developing countries and communities that are in dire nutritional need.)
The shop, which also serves as the setting for LA Ink, will be closed for regular walk-ins during the 24 hour record making session.
In August, Kat packed her bag to walk out of ‘Miami Ink’ due to the conflict with its Ami James. She was the only female artist/star in their show on the contrary in ‘LA Ink’ it is vice-versa as there is one male and all other females.
We Wish You Luck & Success Kat! 🙂
