“Every Great Dream Begins With a Dreamer ...
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Allow Me to Introduce Myself
I’m Imani K. Brown, tattoo artist/ illustrator + kawaii creative, based in DC + Japan
Or simply … the girl behind the brands!
Already, I’m taking a most colorful kawaii + creative entrepreneurship journey and want to invite you to join me for the ride!
I REALLY look forward to becoming friends, learning more about you, and exploring together on this journey.
But first thing’s first …
Here’s a bit about me ~
When I started this journey, I had no idea what to expect. I was scared as all get out and thought ALL THE WRONG THINGS that led to so much fear + creative overwhelm ~
But I decided that if I was going to hang out in tattoo land, I’d always do my best –
always trying to maintain creativity + transparency in my process.
Welp! This August, I’ll celebrate 15 years in my craft, served as a shop manager, have a bustling round-up of clients, specialties that people visit me for …
A HUGE question I get is about my main “job” and income …
Having my studio has given me the opportunity to build creatively … the way I see fit! And that includes helping other artists, dreamers & creatives in MANY ways – from creative coaching to community kawaii workshops. <3
It’s also my where the IRL Kawaii Creative Corner is, where I journal + decompress ~
I am indeed a Kawaii Lifestyle Entrepreneur and have BIG DREAMS of more kawaii in DC!
So, I was fortunate enough to found our lovely kawaii community, DC Kawaii Style ^.^
The community is growing DAILY and I’m so proud that members are taking responsibility for the space, shaping it into a beautifully empowering community <3
Also, I am excited to take all that I know about brands + business, including my resources, to combine the powers of kawaii + entrepreneurship, as we embark on a non-profit journey.
The goal? MORE KAWAII in DC!
