I’m Imani K. Brown (イマーニ), an international tattoo artist and an illustrator native to 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, 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 added to my tattooing, I have developed my own personal philosophical approach to tattooing.
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 ~
