FINALLY! An All-in-One Tattoo Artist Education in Business,  Branding and Marketing

The BLACK TATTOO 

ART SOCIETY

WE HELP YOU:

Become Apprenticeship Ready

Build A Booming Personal Tattoo Brand

+ Explode Your Tattoo Art Business with Though Leadership

If you found your way here it is probably for (at least)

1 of 5 reasons ...

1. You're NOT tattooing regularly or making much moolah. You want to have a regular tattoo schedule but you're married to the walk-in life, slow season is really doom season and don't know wtf to do to get people to FIND YOU. 

2. You're NOT attracting or retaining ideal clients. You hang out on Instagram to find new clients and connect with old ones as a strategy ... but that seems dead and you're unsure how to revive it.

3. You're OVERWHELMED. You're wearing ALL the hats as a solo tattoo entrepreneur, burning the candle at both ends, and trying to connect the dots with branding & marketing for a profitable tattoo business.

4. You're unorganized. You're not sustainable fam! You  just keep on tattooing, never tended to your business and have failed to make a plan or put operational systems in place ... so now your business looks like a whole bag of hot flaming cheetos with no structure or documented processes to tell the help how tf to help YOU.

5. You want to get into the tattoo industry. You are already an artist and want your creativity to spill over into tattoo, but everything seems illusive, you don't know how to rock a portfolio or where tf to start for getting an apprenticeship.

If this is YOU, fam …

Then I want to help take you from

where you are now to

where you want to BE!

Imani provided a fantastic experience throughout the tattoo process, from initial consultation to aftercare! I adore my new tattoo. I would definitely recommend getting work done by her!

 

C. Woodland

Imani is absolutely THE BEST!! Very clear and informative of the whole process, willing to work with you to create your vision, and just an ALL AROUND GREAT HUMAN!!!

T. Josephine

P. Taylor

The importance of finding an artist who you trust and vibe with is the most important part, IMO, in getting a quality tattoo. I have been a long time fan and friend of Imani, so I am totally and unapologetically biased. Her calm, warm demeanor puts you at ease, and her artistry is off the chain ... If you want quick and cheap and shoddy, leave her alone. You can not talk your way into a cheap tattoo from a quality artist. IJS. As for me, its an honor and a privilege to be inked by someone you respect and that is PRICELESS.

S. Hunter

The best experience EVER!!!! Imani is the most awesome human being. Just being around her energy made the day better. Then to top it off, she gave me the most beautiful piece of artwork. It was a coverup of 2 tattoos that made me feel ugly and made me happy to look in the mirror again. But that's not it.... She incorporated flowers that my granddaughter drew. Can't get any better than that. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU IMANI.... I'll be back real soon!!!!

Hey there fam! I am Imani K Brown. Native to Washington, DC, I am an old school, pink-lovin’, high-functioning, mania-managing, fashion-forward Black female tattoo artist with a hellaciously honed left-brain-right-brain skill set.

 

I have been blessed enough to be mentored by the best - Chris Mensah, founder/ owner of Pinz-n-Needlez Tattoo. For years, I served as the shop girl and brand manager for Pinz-n-Needlez Tattoo, translating our in real life experience into a digital landscape + a unique online user experience.

 

Later, I positioned myself as an international artist and Pinz as an international tattoo brand, 

all the while continually growing my personal brand for repeated success.

As seen on: 

Color Outside the Lines / The Griot / The Black Unicorn Project / District Fray Magazine / Hyattsville CDC / Black Enterprise / Quirktastic / Voyage ATL / Black Enterprise / Black Girls Love Tattoo / The COMM / RUMOUR App / Imaginative Visions

As I continued to build on my art business over the years, I refined my systems, mastered my mindset, and created a modern strategy that’s easy to rinse-and-repeat, and I learned what it takes to not only have an art business, but thrive with multiple streams of income without burning the candle at both ends!

I now help beginner + pro tattoo artists, illustrators and multifaceted creatives build a CONFIDENT, sustainable, money-making lifestyle business BRAND.
