Kat Von D recalled tattooing Lady GaGa before the singer became famous.
“I was tattooing this rose on her hip. I’m like, ‘Why did you move out here?’ She said, ‘I moved out here to make it big’,” Von D remembered.
I was like, ‘Yeah, you and everyone else’ or whatever, and she’s like, ‘No, no! I’m here to make it big!’ The next thing you know, a week later, her face is everywhere and I’m like, ‘Dude, she did it! That’s awesome!’”
“She just wanted simple black and grey… She was wearing this crazy wig and blue shiny pants. I was like, ‘I like you! You’re like a cartoon character!’”
