about ipuke kawaii

Hi yah! ・こんにちわ〜!・’sup!

I’m Imani K. Brown (ブラウン・イマーニK. ❀ IKB)

ipukekawaii  tattoos/ art + Japanese culture = my Kawaii

Here’s a snippet of what I have going on professionally, but for a full introduction to my blog, please start here.


I have 12 years tattoo experience and my specialty is fine-line/ detailed tattoo work. ^.^ I want to help people make better tattoo decisions. So I act as a virtual tattoo life coach at ipukekawaii.TATTOO. ^^ Currently, peers and I are brainstorming how to bring a more visible platform tattoo artists of color.



I am a kawaii + empowerment enthusiast. So I actively help grow and strengthen DC’s kawaii community while exploring my on kawaii. My life goal is to share the philosophy of kawaii culture and empowerment to help people others define a better life for themselves. cropped-Untitled-3.gif


Since I am both an artist and (budding) social entrepreneur, my creativity is two-fold. Little INKPLAY Shop is an empowering creative atelier and kawaii culture hub. It is my creative space concept that encompasses both of my creative sides. Here, I look forward to improving my art and discovering my personal brand. 🙂
