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 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.
