Hi INKPLAY family, old and new!
Happy new year!
I know I’m SUPER late, but I’ve been catching up on some things since the new year … and getting my studio, Little INKPLAY Shop in order.
Also happy melanin month y’all! *does happy feet*
Since I was little this has always been a favorite time. I know the argument that black history is EVERYDAY … but I take February to up my game and learn something about my beautiful blackness that I didn’t know before …
You know … the things the text books don’t tell you 😉
So I’m getting my just due learning about the science and explanations of melanin ~
Let me catch you guys up with some updates real quick tho!

- Tuki Carter | owner of City of Ink Tattoo/ Taylor Gang affiliate
- Jacci Gresham | owner of Aart Accent Tattoo/ 1st (documented) black female tattoo artist
I have updated my art portfolios on my personal blog. Why?!
Because after LIPS is underway, I’m circling back to give ipukekawaii.tattoo a face-lift.
