Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D shares baptism video following her renunciation of witchcraft and the occult

Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D was long known for her macabre style and dark designs, which often evoked the occult. However, upon recognizing in recent years that there is "a spiritual battle taking place," Von D, whose real name is Katherine von Drachenberg, began working to ensure that she was on the right side of it.

Drachenberg posted a video to social media Monday revealing the culmination of her efforts.

In the video, the 41-year-old Mexican-American daughter of Protestant missionaries and mother of one can be seen dressed all in white, standing before a church packed full of friends and family.

"Katherine von Drachenberg, upon your profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in obedience to His divine command, I baptize you, my sister, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit," her pastor says before submerging her.

Upon re-emerging, Drachenberg embraces her pastor to the sound of applause.

One of the top comments on the video is, "HELL LOST ANOTHER ONE."

Rafael Reyes, Drachenberg's husband, wrote, "I love you so much my beautiful wife, you continue to inspire me every day."

Drachenberg left California behind in 2020, citing its "terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing," and "corruption."

Geography evidently wasn't the only change she had in mind.

TheBlaze reported last year that Drachenberg — whose 2018 wedding ceremony was heaven-and-hell-themed — purged her new home in Indiana of any and all occult items, noting she just wanted to surround herself and her family "with love and light."

"I don't know if any of you have been going through changes in your lives right now, but in the last few years I've come to some pretty meaningful realizations — many of them revolving around the fact that I got a lot of things wrong in my past," she wrote on Instagram. "Today, I went through my entire library, and threw out books that just don't align with who I am and who I want to be."

Among the books exiled from her home were: "The Witches' Way"; "Magik"; "The Sorrows of Satan"; "A Treasury of Witchcraft"; "The Cosmic Serpent"; and "Satan's Circus."

Drachenberg also scrapped her tarot card collection.

Extra to ridding her home of demonic agitprop, in recent years, the artist also began blacking out some of her tattoos, which had only served as "landmarks in dark times."
