Celebrity tattooist Kat Von D has landed her first record deal and is currently putting together her debut album.
The skin art expert has revealed her project will be full of "dark" and "romantic" songs.
And she insists she's more talented than most reality TV stars-turned-rockers, telling Eonline.com: "I've been passionate about music all my life. I've been playing classical piano since I was six, so I understand the form. It will be fun to be able to translate a message."
Von D has time on her side - she recently ended her engagement with Sandra Bullock's ex-husband Jesse James and her reality TV show LA Ink was axed last month (Sep11).
