• You MUST be 18 with a valid state issued ID.

    There is NO co-signing EVER … so please don’t ask.

  • HOW FAR DOES IMANI SCHEDULE OUT?

    2-3 months.

  • HOW DO THE APPOINTMENTS WORK?

    Imani only books full day tattoo sessions - 1 day, back to back or monthly multi sessions to complete your piece. For ALL clients, once you receive Imani’s booking calendar, you can book for any availability that is convenient to your schedule.


  • HOW MUCH WORK DOES IMANI GET DONE IN A FULL DAY SESSION?

    Each full day session is approximately 5-6 hours. Because pain management, skin health and individual needs are our first priorities, it varies by client.

  • WHAT TYPES OF TATTOO IDEAS ARE YOU CURRENTLY ACCEPTING?

    Imani only books for work that allows creative freedom and collaboration.

    While Imani is a well-rounded artist, her voice is strongest in ornamental, Africana, Japanese, anime/ kawaii and floral work. Her style is always rooted in fineline, detail, texture and pattern work.

  • WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

    Hyattsville, MD Historic Arts District (near downtown Washington, DC).

  • IS IMANI TRAVELING SOON?

    Please join the waitlist for Imani’s upcoming travel and event plans. So far, we will be hosting a 4-city tattoo tour.

  • That depends on when you start your consultation process and pay your deposit, friend.

  • WILL I GET TO TALK TO IMANI BEFORE MY TATTOO APPOINTMENT DATE?

    Yes! We do virtual consultations at $50. Once you schedule your consultation, Imani will be there to greet you and discuss your ideas, thoroughly. 

    • If you proceed the amount goes towards your tattoo deposit.
    • If you choose not proceed you will walk away with all the information you need to choose an artist of a better fit. On occasion, we do provide direct referrals to other artists within our immediate network.

    • is an exact copy of other artist’s work
    • the artist finds that you will not be able to practice the 3C’s reciprocally - consideration, communication, & creativity - using the tools provided to guide you gracefully through your tattoo journey.

    If you are not directly related to the industry or already heavily tattooed, we will not tattoo your hands, inner lips, neck or face and most likely any other trendy or abnormal placement.
