1. She is exceptionally talented
Something Kat Tat has going for her is that she is exceptionally talented. Her ability to provide people with the most beautiful tattoos is something that enchants her fans. She is among the best of the best, and her specialty has always been a delicate portrait style.
2. She tattooed herself
When you get a tattoo on your body, it’s forever. You want the best of the best to work on you because you know you will carry this ink around for the rest of your life. However, what happens when you want a tattoo and you are the best of the best? You get a tattoo. Kat Tat did it for herself when she was on reality TV, and it’s never been done before.
3. She owns her own business
Fans were crushed when their favorite artist left Chicago to change her life and find things for herself. They weren’t happy to see her go, but many are happy to know that she is booming. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She has her own tattoo shop called Enigma Tattoo. She’s doing pretty well at her job there, and the West Coast is happy to have her.
4. She loves art
While in LA, she doesn’t just focus on the type of body art she can create on her clients. She also loves artwork, which is why she also opened the Enigma Art Gallery in Beverly Hills. She is doing well and her gallery and tattoo parlor are thriving in the upscale Beverly Hills scene.
5. She is in a relationship
Another thing that excites her fans is that she has found love and that she is happy. She is dating an NFL player named Jamie Collins. He plays for the Detroit Lions, and the two have been happy together for quite some time now. She doesn’t often talk about her private life, but fans love it when she shares a glimpse into her happy new life.
6. She’s a new mom
Kat Tat is good at keeping her life to herself, which is why fans were shocked when she announced her pregnancy in late March 2021, then turned around and announced the birth of her son less than two months later. Her baby boy was born in early June 2021. His name is Jackson and she is smitten with his new little love.
7. It is inherently private
Katrina Kat Tat Jackson is a private woman. She’s had her fair share of drama being on reality TV and being a star, but she’s not someone who likes to carry drama on her. She doesn’t invite him into her life, so she keeps her head down, she does her job, and she lives her life without giving anyone anything to talk about.
8. She made history
One thing Kat Tat has going for her is the fact that she made history – and she’s proud of it. She is the first owner of a black tattoo shop in Beverly Hills, and that’s something she’s proud of. She doesn’t focus on the story, but is happy to be a role model and a positive example for other young women and men who are not sure they can pursue their dreams.
9. She gets it from her mom
When asked where she gets her artistic abilities from, she will credit her mother from start to finish. She has been artistic her entire life, but credits her mother for being the one who passed this talent on to her children. She was an artist, and she spent her time making art with her children when they were growing up.
10. She’s a winner
If you ever doubted that Kat Tat is not as talented as you might think, consider the fact that she was a teenage girl whose art was so good that she was able to travel to Florida and show her work. It was then that she realized that her work could become her future, her life and her way of life.
