Kat Von D drops the price of a gothic LA mansion to $12.5 million

Tattoos are permanent — but the asking price of a body ink legend’s lair can certainly change.

Famed tattoo artist and makeup mogul Kat Von D shaved $2.5 million off the roughly 12,500-square-foot Los Angeles home she listed this year for a cool $15 million. That means the three-story Victorian — which was also featured in the 2003 film “Cheaper by the Dozen” — is asking for $12.5 million, a listing representative told The Post.

The property dates back to the 1890s, but was moved in 1915 to its current location in Windsor Square – a historic neighborhood in the city of Angels.

From the outside, the gated house has a Gothic charm – not only with a dark-colored exterior accented with a turret and hints of black and gold, but also with a built-in pool and spa whose waters are blood-red.

The frame images additionally show a handsome library with wooden bookcases and fireplace with a wooden mantelpiece and a striking drawing room, whose Versailles-esque features include gold moldings over sage-colored walls – all under a painted ceiling. That room also has an ornate fireplace. The wood-panelled dining room with stained glass windows has another fireplace.

Inside, the main house also has eight bedrooms, which also give a gloomy-chic feel. One has a gold-painted vaulted ceiling and a carved wood fireplace, while another is clad in gold and black tones.

Five bedrooms are on the second floor and three on the top floor. (A carriage house on top of the garage has two other bedrooms, bringing the total to 10.) The third level also has additional living space that can function as a theater with surround sound or, without a screen, as a stage.
