People love to box you in. I personally think it’s impossible to put any artist in a box simply because, to be an artist means you see the world differently than others and you’re capable of expressing that vision. With that being said, it seems silly to try to describe a true artist as having one art form. Imani K. Brown is a true artist without a box. It’s especially ironic that the box many have tried to place her in is a box that she wasn’t “supposed” to occupy in the first place.
The world of body art was once mired by the notion that African Americans couldn’t become talented tattoo artists. The notion that women could become talented tattoo artists was even more farfetched. Well lo and behold, one of the most celebrated tattoo artists on the east coast is Ms. Imani K. Brown. Check out the video and the pics below to learn more about Ms. Brown and to see some great artwork. Enjoy.
