A Creative Morning with Gertie Gerbre Photography & Mal’s Content

Hi kawaii + creative family ~ HAPPY MONDAY and happy Spring. (I think I forgot to share that last week … >.<) I had the pleasure of meeting and sharing my story, as a creative, with two AMAZING individuals, Patty of Gertie Gerbre Photography and Malini who shares beautiful stories under the pen name, Mal’s Content. The full photo exhibit is available here … and Mal shared words about our time together here. Now it’s my turn! Since we took a tour of my heart/ intentions and studio. Unfortunately, I am no longer in this space. But changing spaces doesn’t change what’s in my heart. So I thought I’d give you a tour of using some of my fav photos from the shoot ~ Hopefully Patty, Malini and I can come together again to give you an update on the new space. Don’t forget to check out Little INKPLAY Shop and all its kawaii creativity. Enjoy~ ^.^

✨Welcome | Yokoso ~ ^.^

let’s start here … with my homie Doraemon and my goofy arse face LOL. Welcome to Little INKPLAY Shop, Creative Atelier + Kawaii Culture Hub – Where Kawaii Creatives GROW!🌱

🌸Tattoo | 入れ墨

I rarely show my tattoos -I don’t think I shared that in our first talk that day- so here’s a rare moment … captured by Patty ^.^

I also want to help guide people (m melanin family especially) to making better choices for their skin. So I take my time at ipukekawaii.tattoo to help coach those interested in my work through a positive, colourful and creative tattoo experience ^.^

You don’t get it back so why not treat it right once, yeah?!

part of my mission is to help my friends the same way they help me … so here’s to getting hip to a very important movement, Save Tattooing in Japan ~

🌸Kawaii Things | かわいい の こと

I started sharing more about kawaii culture as a positive lifestyle a few years ago ~

And now working hard to add kawaii + creative arts educator to my resume …

Never heard of it?! Me either! 😭😹

I’m creating my own lane ~.^

we took a moment to doodle 🙂

🌸Beauty | ビューティー

and here’s my happy face!

I cried when I saw this shoot.

For the first time (in a long time) I saw my true beauty ~ rooted in creativity and kawaii culture.

It’s in doing what I love and connecting with like-minded people.

For the first time … I saw the beauty of self empowerment.

THANK YOU Patty and Malini for sharing with me (and others), an important part of my truest self.

💗💗💗

Stay empowered to chase your dreams fam!

Gambare, minna 🎨☀️🌈💗💕✨ Imani (イマーニ)
