Meet Kat Von D in Miami Beach at 'American Beauty Art Show'



Tattoo artist and reality TV star Kat Von D is in Miami Beach Thursday, unveiling eight original prints for her "New American Beauty Art Show" at Sephora South Beach.

Coinciding with Art Basel, Von D will make a personal appearance from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at Sephora South Beach, 721 Collins Avenue. The first 100 clients to purchase a print will get wristbands to attend VIP premiere party hosted by the heavily-inked artist.

Fifty prints of the eight drawings in "The New American Beauty" collection will be on sale with proceeds benefitting The Art of Elysium, a non-profit charity Von D founded to help critically ill children.

Best known for the TLC reality TV show "LA Ink," Von D in July split with financee Jesse James, the former husband of Sandra Bullock. Von D, known for her no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is demeanor, recently posted a note entitled "Thank You, Jesse James." on the Kat Von D Facebook fan page: "Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year." The post had more than 16,000 likes and 4,500 comments.

In addition to owning High Voltage Tattoo in Hollywood, Calif., Von D also has a successful line of cosmetics at Sephora. The beauty company comissioned her to do the limited-edition works. The show will be exhibited at the beauty stores throughout 2012.
