Kat Von D Donates Medical Supplies to Local L.A. Hospital
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D recently donated medical supplies to LA County Hospital.
Von D’s LA tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo, gave all its gloves and aprons to LA County Hospital, following the medical supply shortage due to the impact of COVID-19.
Von D announced the donation via an Instagram post: “Today, my tattoo shop @highvoltagetat donated our entire inventory of unopened gloves and aprons to the nurses and doctors of the LA County Hospital.” This location is one of many fighting the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected over half a million people worldwide.
Von D went on in her Instagram post to bring attention to the issue of hoarding amid the pandemic. “We only had 8,000 gloves, and 500 of our medical grade aprons — but due to the unnecessary hoarding of medical supplies taking place by relatively healthy, yet panicked citizens, this type of hoarding has created massive shortages in hospitals leaving doctors, nurses and health workers dangerously ill-equipped to take care of patients and protect themselves.”
