The 29-year-old is already working on an album and assures fans that she has the background to go pro.
"I've been passionate about music all my life,” Kat says. “I've been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message."
Von D adds that with her creativity, a musical project should be a snap. "I think it's much like tattooing or the TV show...or my clothing line. All those things, they're just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it's going to be one of those things."
Plus, her TV series was canceled, so she'll have plenty of time to work in the studio.
The tattoo artist says her influences include Depeche Mode, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Metallica and The Cure.
Considering her recent split from fiancé Jesse James, it makes sense that Kat’s upcoming songs will be on the "dark, more tragically romantic" side.
Watch out, Jesse, she’s probably got plenty of songwriting material!
