I. met. Kat von D. And it was AWESOME! She had a book signing today here in Nashville for her new book, High Voltage Tattoo. She is just as gorgeous in person and so down-to-earth and nice. I never thought I was the type to geek out over a celebrity, even one that I really liked, but as the line moved on, I started freaking out. My hands were shaking so much I couldn’t get a picture that wasn’t blurry (that and my camera is old and shitty.) I’m getting giddy all over again thinking about it. I shook Kat Von D’s hand. I talked to Kat Von D. Some people don’t know that Kat is actually a Latina, born in Mexico to Argentinian parents with a German and Italian heritage. I admire her because she’s a more alternative role model; she rocks her carreer and lives life to the max with no apologies. And she still stays grounded. I want to be able to say that about myself someday. The variety of people who came to the signing was so interesting: old, young, tattooed, not-tattooed, alternative, preppy, etc. I guess anyone can recognize what an amazing person she is. Here are two pics:
Life is good. No, life is great.
