Tattoo Artist Kat Von D Wants To Ink a Deal on $3.4M Hollywood Hills Home

By Claudine Zap

The tattoo artist Kat Von D is looking to mark her Spanish-style residence as “sold.” She’s asking $3.4 million for the home in the Hollywood Hills.

Katherine Von Drachenberg, better known as Kat Von D, purchased the property in 2011 for $2,175,000. The artist honored the home with updates that let its character and its original features shine through.

“It’s more about what was left intact, rather than what was changed, that makes it special,” says the co-listing agent Marissa Faith, a partner at Deasy Penner Podley. She and Jamie Sher of The Sher Group represent the listing.

Faith noted one custom Von D touch: the “imported, hand-painted wallpaper” added to the home office.

During her ownership, Von D also updated the electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and chimney. In addition, she soundproofed some of the windows so music could be recorded in the home.
