Here’s some personal history on Ms. Von D…

Born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, Von D moved to the United States when she was four, settling in Colton, California.[1] Her father René von Drachenberg is of German descent and her mother, Sylvia Galeano has Italian roots. Both were born in Argentina[1][2]. She speaks fluent Spanish and English[1]. She has a brother Michael and a sister named Karoline.

Growing up in the Inland Empire, she made her first tattoo in 1996 with a homemade rig at age 14, the skull logo of the punk band Misfits.[3]. In 1998, she began working in her first professional shop, Sin City Tattoo. This was a great period of growth in her work and led to her eventually moving to True Tattoo for a chance to work with Clay Decker and Chris Garver. This afforded her the opportunity to live and work in Hollywood, Los Angeles.[4] While working at True Tattoo, Von D met her ex-husband, Oliver Peck, and occasionally worked at his tattoo shop “Elm Street Tattoo” in Dallas, Texas.
