Kat Von D is opening up about her religious journey.
The tattoo artist and musician appeared in a 12-minute-long video posted to her Instagram page on Sunday night to discuss how people have reacted to her recent baptism.
She also briefly discussed her current stance on faith and explained why she chose to share a video of the ceremony.
“I know that everybody’s on their own journey and it’s not for everybody, but this is where I’m at,” she said in her video. “And to me, my baptism was a public demonstration of where I stand with my faith, and basically letting people know that I’m not ashamed.”
Still, Von D said that outside of a formal podcast or interview in the future, she likely won’t talk much about her faith online.
“It’s not for any other reason than I just don’t really feel equipped to be the poster child for Christianity,” Von D said. “I think that I’m still learning and as I do, I will become more equipped, but for the time being, I feel like I’ve never really been that and I don’t plan on doing that. So if you started following me because you think this will become some kind of Christian meme page, it’s not going to happen.”

Though she’s only shared snippets of her religious journey — a video of her baptism and occasional photos from church on her Instagram story — Von D said in her latest post that she wants to help other people by being open about it.
“If there was anybody out there that felt like they were at a crossroads and don’t feel like you fit in — because I don’t feel like I fit in anywhere now or that I ever have, to be honest with you — you’re not alone,” she said. “And it’s crazy how many people in my DMs and stuff shared with me what they’ve been going through too, so it’s kind of cool to be able to connect in that way.” 
She also described her baptism as “one of the most important days” of her life.

Von D was baptized at the Switzerland Baptist Church in Vevay, Indiana, more than a year after renouncing witchcraft and the macabre.
In July 2022, the mom of one shared on Instagram that she was throwing out her belongings that related to the occult after coming to “some pretty meaningful realizations.”
“I’ve always found beauty in the macabre, but at this point, I just had to ask myself, ‘What is my relationship with this content?'” she wrote. “And the truth is, I just don’t want to invite any of these things into our family’s lives, even if it comes disguised in beautiful covers, collecting dust on my shelves.”
