Cool | Kawaii | Creative, ME!

Hi yah! ・こんにちわ〜!・’sup!

I’m Imani K. Brown (ブラウン・イマーニK. ❀ IKB), a visual communicator/ brand identity specialist by way of tattoos and illustration.
Here is an outline of my professional life.



I have 13+ years tattoo experience with a specialty in fine-line/ detailed tattoo work. ^.^

My passion is (kawaii) tattoo experiences for healing and helping people make better tattoo life decisions.

I am a kawaii + empowerment enthusiast! Friends and I have partnered to actively help grow and strengthen DC’s kawaii community while exploring my on かわいい + creativity.
My life goal is to explore and share the afro-Asian aesthetic and philosophy of kawaii culture;  relating back to how kawaii can help others through self exploration and define a better life for themselves.
