Famous tattoo artist Kat Von D took to Facebook to announce that she will be leaving Los Angeles for a small town in Indiana due to "tyrannical government overreach". In a social media post last week, the former 'LA Ink' star said that many of her friends had been texting her asking if she was selling her home in Hancock Park, California, after she announced that she was moving to Indiana.

She made it clear that her California home will not be sold and also explained the reason behind her location change. “Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA, but with all that’s been taking place in California, with terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, among so much more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day,” she said.

She also added that she was not closing her iconic shop in Los Angeles. “So no, I am not closing my shop in LA. We aren't selling our home. But will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house," she said. 

There were mixed reactions from her fans regarding her move. “I left the sheltered, depressing area you’re moving to, so did most everyone I knew. I also lived in Cali. More expensive, but more opportunities in every aspect. A lot of people there never left the state. Tyrannical overreach? That’s hilarious because you guys never would be successful without ‘worldly’ /Cali attitudes,” said one user.

“Welcome to Indiana Kat. I love it here. Married a Hoosier and we moved back to his hometown 23 yrs ago when he got out of the Military,” said a fan. “How wonderful for you to take the time to address the concerns and questions of your fans, and what an amazing mom you are Kat! I admire your soul, and yours is truly a beautiful heart! All the best wishes for you and your family,” said another. 

Kat's move comes after a string of celebrities and other businessmen left the Golden State due to horrific policies. Tesla founder and billionaire Elon Musk was one of the prominent faces who recently announced his move to Texas after repeatedly criticizing the Covid-19 lockdown policies.

“Tesla and SpaceX obviously have mass operations in California. In fact, it’s worth noting that Tesla is the last car company still manufacturing cars in California,” Musk said during a virtual conference hosted by the Wall Street Journal.

“Space X is the last aerospace company still doing significant manufacturing in California. There used to be over a dozen car plants in California, and California used to be the center of aerospace manufacturing. My companies are the last two left. For myself, yes, I have moved to Texas. We’ve got the Starship development here in South Texas where I am right now. We’re hopefully going to do a launch later today. And then we’ve got big factory developments just outside of Austin for Giga Texas."
