Dani Koi Ink is a small art company run by Daniel "Dani Koi" Bryant, a local artist hailing from Nottoway Virginia. You think it, I ink it! With roots in tattoo design and small time customization projects, Dani Koi Ink now handles projects ranging from glass etching and console customization, to tattoo design and decorative artwork, along with interior design and custom murals.
With my latest post, our affiliated artist count up to 4! We have Brandon "Wolfy" Fowlkes, who specializes in anime style characters, Daniel "Dani Koi" Bryant, specializing in custom creations, Samantha "Firefly" Soulsby, photographer extraordinaire, and Eamon "The Goblin" Taggart, whose paper statuettes are without compare! I want to give a huge shout out to the entire Dani Koi Ink team, and you can see Dani Koi, Firefly, and The Goblin at the Richmond Comix Artists Expo and Grand Re-opening on October 11th! We all look forward to seeing you there!
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, and of course all my faithful inklings, Dani Koi Ink is PROUD to announce, that as of this moment we are capable of taking both online payments AND credit/debit card payments! That means no more fumbling for cash, or pre-planning to hit an ATM on your way to your Dani Koi Ink premier events, instead just bring your wallet and that handy dandy piece of plastic, and you are all set! We even provide e-mail receipts along with your order, if you so desire. So, we look forward to seeing you at the next Dani Koi Ink attended event, which happens to be The Annual Richmond Comix Artist's Expo, happening on October 11th from 12 Noon to 6pm. Until then, everybody, take it easy and don't work too hard.

[05/21/14] LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, BOYS AND GIRLS, CHILDREN OF ALL AGES! Now that I have your attention, I want to thank everyone who has "liked" Dani Koi Ink on Facebook before now. However! This is a call to arms! To all my little Inklings out there (yes, that is what I call my fans) We only need 2 MORE LIKES until we hit the Dani Koi Ink 100 Like Giveaway! If you want to be entered in to earn something awesome from Dani Koi ink, simply ask some of your friends to like the page! Once we hit that magical 100 likes, I will start the giveaway!
[05/21/14] So, it has been a long time. A lot of bad stuff has happened, but a lot of good too. Just letting you folks out there know, that we are still here. We will continue to do the things we have always done, only bigger, better, and with more people involved. Thanks to everyone who supports Dani Koi Ink and its artists.
Today, I am proud to say we are adding, tentatively, a new artist to the Dani Koi Ink team. Specializing in custom, made to order, paper figurines, many of which are beyond my comprehension or ability to create, Eamon Taggart has agreed to have his goods offered here at Dani Koi Ink. We had this conversation a LONG time ago, sitting in his bedroom as I looked at his homemade army of paper and glue in awe. As soon as this post goes out, I will be adding him to the page as a content creator, and hopefully he will be posting on here at his leisure whenever the mood fancies him, and possibly adding some photos too!
P.S. This dude makes paper chainmaille. Like, seriously. It's amazing.
[12/18/13] Just slapped a new coat of paint, in the form of a new cover photo, new profile picture, and some new personal info, on the Dani Koi Ink page. Hopefully we can reach that illustrious 100 "Like" mark soon. We are only ten people away. Look forward to hearing from you all!
[10/30/13] So night before last, I was introduced to the awesome of Bravest Warriors and even better, Catbug. The first three people to comment below this status with a Catbug quote will win a free art print of their choice, or a custom piece. Good luck.
OKay, so we LITERALLY just hit 70 likes. THAT IS SO AWESOME! THANK YOU! I will make you guys a deal. Share this page with your friends, your enemies, and everyone else. WHEN we get 100 likes, I will write EACH AND EVERY name on a piece of parchment, using a calligraphy pen, and have it framed and put it on my wall. You guys are what inspires me to keep doing what I am doing.
[09/13/13] Just got finished putting together a slideshow for display at the RCX Annual Artist's Expo! If you guys out there in INTERNETLAND have any cool pictures of Dani Koi Ink artwork that you would like included, let me know and I will do my best to include everything from my loyal customers!

A friend of a friend just posted that "Art Life Is The Best Life". I have to agree and disagree. Running my own art business I have learned two main things.
1.) Waking up knowing what you currently do for a living is what you love is unlike any other feeling in the world, and it is the most gratifying thing ever.
2.) I have learned the difference between someone whose sole job is "artist" and a large pizza.
A large pizza can feed a family of 3.
Man, I need a nine to five job. Really REALLY R-E-A-L-L-Y hoping this position I have applied for comes through. Thank you to EVERYONE who has supported me and Dani Koi Ink from the beginning, thank you to all of the new faces who are supporting me now. Know that me getting a steady income will NOT hinder my artistic production, if anything it will make my projects bigger, better, and more amazing for all of you. I will be posting this on my personal page as well, so if it is in your feed twice, you are doubly loved.
[03/07/12] The Mass Effect Midnight Launch Party was a HUGE success! Congratulations to David, who won the custom Nerf Blaster, and congratulations to the other gentleman, whose name eludes me, who won the free paint job! I hope that everyone who is interested in Dani Koi Ink gives me a call and uses up those sweet sweet discounts!
[03/04/12] Everybody loves Mass Effect. Everybody loves free stuff. Everybody loves parties. So there is no reason for you not to join Dani Koi Ink at the Mass Effect 3 Midnight Release Party at the Farmville Virginia Gamestop. With your purchase of the game you are eligible to win either a Custom N7 Nerf Blaster or a Free Dani Koi Ink Paintjob of your choice. Dani Koi Ink will also be offering prizes to the people who place in the top three spot in the Street Fighter x Tekken tournament that same night! So come on by, pick up your copy of two of the most anticipated games of the year, Mass Effect 3 and Street Fighter x Tekken, and win some Dani Koi Ink swag!

[03/04/12] Whoever says Dani Koi Ink can't live up to its mantra of customizing ANYTHING should take a look at the custom shoes I just worked up for return client Matthew Wallace.

[01/07/12] Okay folks. First off I’d like to say a big Happy New Year to all of my loyal Dani Koi Ink Customers! Second of all, I’d like to clear up some confusion as to what it is I do here at Dani Koi Ink. A lot of people are mislead by the word “Ink” in the name into thinking that I am a licensed tattoo artist. I am not, nor do I claim to be. Dani Koi Ink is a full service art and customization business aimed at making great custom products and amazing pieces of artwork at a lower price than our competitors. We achieve this by providing a high quality of work without having a middleman or a major supplier that we are indebted to. We are completely independent of everyone else out there and are not affiliated with any brands or products we use. That being said, look out today for a full list of services and some sweet deals for the New Year! I would like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who have supported me, and another extremely large thank you to people that purchased Dani Koi Ink Customs during 2011!
