Kat Von D has recalled tattooing Lady GaGa before the singer became famous.
Speaking on Lopez Tonight, the LA Ink star revealed that GaGa had just moved to Los Angeles at the time and was still looking for her big break.
“I was tattooing this rose on her hip. I’m like, ‘Why did you move out here?’ She said, ‘I moved out here to make it big’,” Von D remembered.
“I was like, ‘Yeah, you and everyone else’ or whatever, and she’s like, ‘No, no! I’m here to make it big!’ The next thing you know, a week later, her face is everywhere and I’m like, ‘Dude, she did it! That’s awesome!’”
When George Lopez questioned if GaGa wanted the rose design coloured in at some stage, she replied:
“She just wanted simple black and grey… She was wearing this crazy wig and blue shiny pants. I was like, ‘I like you! You’re like a cartoon character!’”
