I’m Imani K. Brown (イマーニ),  an international tattoo artist and an illustrator living in Washington, DC. In my over 10 years of working in the industry I have taken time to become a well-rounded tattoo artist, proficient in a number of styles.

At this intersection in my career, my goal is to show the world the power of tattoo artistry as a visual art and form of healing. I warmly welcome all styles for every type of skin, but specialise in Japanese inspired and fine-line work for dark skin.

Aside from tattooing,  I am now exploring my own “Kawaii* empowerment” in my creative space, Little INKPLAY Shop (小ちゃな インクプレ店). This space will have open doors, welcoming others to meet-up and explore their artistic voice, creativity, and self-love.

My professional mantra is
… Fine (tattoo) art should be the standard, not the exception
My daily mantra is
Remember to remember to paint everyday BRIGHT!

Welcome and please enjoy your stay & Paint your day bright!
