Kawaii + Creativity, is Me ~


I’m Imani K. Brown (イマーニ),  an international tattoo artist and an illustrator native to Washington, DC. In my over 14 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, through a kawaii lens. Though I specialise in Japanese-inspired and fine-line work for dark skin, most styles for every type of skin are warmly welcomed.

With lessons of cultural experiences embedded in my expertise, I have developed my own personal, fun, and  philosophical approach to the craft.

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.

I truly honor your trust in me to create a living masterpiece.

Thank you for stopping by ~
