Welcome to another amazing Working Together Wednesday. Today I’m happy to introduce you all to a new friend of mine who is an amazing artist, and as inspiring woman. Meet Imani, and learn all about her blog and business. Welcome Imani!!!
1. Give us a quick intro of you and your family.
Hi! I’m Imani a DC/ Japan-based tattoo artist/ illustrator and kawaii (cute) culture creative. Nice to meet you! ^^
2. What is your business/blog?
Welp. Please pardon my blog, I’m still getting the hang of what I want to focus on there. But my tagline is tattoos/ art + Japanese culture = myKawaii so I share a lot of my work and art shows as they come together. I also blog about my kawaii creative lifestyle, adventures in Japan using my travel hashtag #dctojapan & building a kawaii community. My goal is to bring my kawaii culture to DC in a private tattoo studio & kawaii culture hub, Little INKPLAY Shop, so there’s lots of mentions of my #supportLIPS efforts.
Other do-dads there include things I find inspirational, in the land of creativity, personal entertainment, wise words, etc. … because sometimes we ALL need a pep talk or pick me up
and my shares from actively learning Japanese. 🙂
That’s for now, though. In the future I hope to share more from my amazing clients for some colorful Tattoo Tuesday shares. I think cool people should know cool people. So as I get better at blogging I hope to share a host of cool people that cool readers will hopefully want to connect with. They all seem to sit in my chair!
3. What is your best piece of advice?
I have two! They’re mantras I govern most of my life by as a creative, business woman/ entrepreneur, and (future) wife. They help me keep balance and strive for more so hopefully they’ll help someone else too~
“Lead with your heart and let logic follow!”
From one dreamer to another, it’s best for us to let go of fear and give the heart what it wants so long as it doesn’t bring harm to you (and anyone else, for that matter). Logic tends to show itself as long ad you’re true to … yourself! Just believe ~
“Don’t forget to paint your day bright!”
All of our days won’t be what we WANT them to be. Yes, they’ll be sucky ones. You know?! Those days when chasing dreams just knocks the wind out of you and you have to take a step back, recoup, and try it again. On those days, be reminded to take a moment to do something for ourselves (or someone else, even) that’ll help alleviate some stress, put a smile on your face & a fresh pep in your step. And hop back to it! ^^
4. Where can we find you? (like an email, or your social media networks)
