"Four or five years ago going into a Dior store or, you know, you felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. People would stare, and it wasn’t because they were curious. Going to the mall was pretty hard. I think for a female especially, because it’s so much gnarlier than on a guy. On a guy it’s like, “Oh, he’s a wild one.” If it’s a girl it’s all the bad stigmas. You’re a hooker, you’re a drug addict, you were in jail."Quote from Kat von D interview with PR.com about encountered prejudice from people, before she was famous, who would see her outward appearance and judge her because she is heavily tattooed.
