Meet 2016 OH Fest Artist: Kid Ink


Kristen Amrhein

Brian Todd Collins (Kid Ink) is performing at this year’s OH Fest on April 23, 2016.\

Kid Ink, age 29, is a successful rapper, singer, songwriter and producer. He is engaged to Asiah Azante, a fitness model with whom he recently had a daughter. Kid Ink is known for collaborating with Fifth Harmony, Usher, and Chris Brown.

Fun fact: Kid Ink has 25 tattoos on his face, arms, hands, and torso!. He got his first tattoo when he was 16 and has been addicted to getting tattoos since. Kid Ink told Capital XTRA studio in an interview his top six favorite tattoos.

The first tattoo is ‘The Hand’ which is a tattoo of skeleton bones.

The second tattoo is ‘Stay Humble.’ He says they are the words you need to live by to get ahead in the game.

The third tattoo is the two people that raised him: his mother and grandfather. His grandfather doesn’t actually like the tattoos but he said the one of him is the best tattoo he’s ever seen.

The fourth tattoo is the first tattoo he got. It is of a really big star on his forearm.

The fifth tattoo is in honor of an iconic hip-hop band ‘Public Enemy’ which is on his back written in large red letters with a pair of eyes in between the words.

The sixth tattoo is for a group that he signed with called ‘Tha Alumni Group’. Tha Alumni Group is a fashion apparel business with members such as DJ Ill Will, Kid Ink, Sean Brown and DJ Tech.
