Baby on board!
Fans of Black Ink Crew: Chicago have long regarded Katrina "Kat Tat" Jackson as one of the best artists to come out of the entire franchise. A true and natural talent, Kat Tat has won over many viewers with her realism and portrait style of tattoos.
She also famously tattooed herself on the show — which is something not all artists can do — and the results were amazing. In other words, Kat Tat is not one to play with on the tattoo front.
After Kat Tat left the show in 2017, a lot changed in her life. Not only does she own Enigma Tattoos and Enigma Art Gallery in Beverly Hills, but she is also now a mother.
Since she has been coupled up for quite some time, fans are wondering just how many kids Kat Tat has. And the reality star spoke exclusively with Distractify about being a mom.
Kat Tat has welcomed baby No. 2 with her boyfriend, Patriots player Jamie Collins.
Oh baby! It appears that Kat Tat has become a boy mom twice over! In a July 16, 2022, Instagram post, Katrina revealed that she has given birth to her second son, Jakobi Lee Collins. As expected, fans and fellow Black Ink stars past and present have shared their congratulations.
"Wow Kat…he’s beautiful," Donna Lombardi wrote.
"Definitely Jamie's twin," Charmaine Bey said.
"Congrats sis," Van Johnson wrote.
Since then, the tattoo mogul has shared adorable shots of her tribe along with sentimental moments of her and baby Jakobi.
This comes a few months after Katrina revealed in February 2022 that she and Jamie were expecting baby Jakobi.
"Back 2 back," the caption reads with a heart and pregnant woman emoji.
Fellow Black Ink Crew stars Ceaser Emanuel, Kevin Laroy, and Don Brumfield all shared their congratulations.
This fabulous news follows the talented artist announcing the birth of her son, Jackson Frederick Collins, on June 6, 2021.
"Jackson Fredrick Collins, 8 lbs. 10 oz.,” she wrote along with blue heart emojis. “Welcome to the world baby boy. I am so in love. Never knew happiness like this before. My world is complete!"
She initially shared in March 2021 that she was expecting her first child, posting a video of her right at sunset — in a gorgeous beachside shot of the tattoo artist — holding her growing baby bump. And of course, she set social media ablaze with the amazing news.
As you can see, Kat Tat is all about transparency in all aspects of her life. And she always takes the time to gush about what she loves about being a mother.
"I love watching my baby sleep," Kat Tat exclusively told Distractify in April 2022. "I love watching just all his milestones. At the end of the day, I love, like, just watching him sleep because he's my little baby. It's kind of hard to explain, but I love it. It's the biggest blessing in the world."
Kat Tat and Jamie Collins have been together for quite some time.
Things have changed for the better in Kat Tat's romantic life. As a result, she has decided to be transparent about her life, including her relationship with Jamie.
In the past, Kat Tat has found herself in the midst of drama stemming from her Black Ink Crew: Chicago days. So, it makes perfect sense that Kat Tat is willing to share her relationship with the world since she's happy.
If you’ve been paying attention to Kat Tat’s social media, she first introduced the world to Jamie in late July 2020. In the photo, Kat Tat can be seen tattooing him as she sits on his lap. In October 2020, she posted another photo of the couple on his birthday where she referred to the NFL baller as “love bug.”
Since then, the star has frequently posted snaps of the pair and their sons on Instagram.
We would like to send our congratulations to Kat Tat and Jamie on their second bundle of joy!
