From 2007 until 2011, it’s safe to say that LA Ink was a TLC fan favorite. But what have those tattooers been up to since the show wrapped?
The leader of High Voltage Tattoo, expert artist Kat Von D, has been seriously expanding her career since the show ended. Most recently, the raven-haired beauty launched her cosmetics line, Kat Von D Beauty.

And the 35-year-old credits her success to her growing presence on Instagram.
“I think Instagram has really changed everything; not just my brand, but also the makeup world in general,” she told Fashion Magazine in 2016. “Now there’s two different types of influencers — there’s the professional makeup artists that are working everyday on photo shoots or runway or editorial stuff, and then there’s ones that are creating really amazing and inspiring looks like lip art and things like that for Instagram that may not necessarily be practical for everyday wear.”
In addition to her makeup and tattooing ventures, Kat has been involved in several high profile relationships, like with Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, Sandra Bullock’s ex Jesse James, and Jackass star Steve-O.
