Kat Von D and Tattoo Tuesday

Recently, on Twitter, I’ve been following Kat Von D ( @katvond ). I have to admit to having a bit of a crush on her. She is amazing. The heroine in my book Stained is slightly based on her. I tried to put a bit of wild child in Thorn the heroine. She has long onyx hair and rides a Ducati. She’s a natural born witch who is a tattoo artist with her own shop called Stained.

My dilemna is that I would love for the real Kat to read my book. But how does one approach a celebrity to do this? I know if I just mailed it to her it would probably get thrown out before she even saw it. I don’t want to come across as a stalker. How would you suggest I make contact? Enquiring minds want to know.

While I ponder this, I’m leaving you with this tattoo to drool over in a new installment of my blog, Tattoo Tuesday. I have a thing for gargoyles. They come up in a future book 🙂

Ciao Bellas

    You could go to her page and sign up for a tattoo. Cept it is a long form, not everyone gets replied to and, small problem, money and a trip to LA.

    Otherwise, she has a book out. Maybe send a request to review it.
