MIAMI, FL–(Marketwired – Jun 22, 2016) – Ami James Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: AJBI) (“Ami James Brands” or “Company”), a licensing and brand management company with its core business rooted in the tattoo industry, is pleased to announce it has initiated strategic legal and industry research in an effort to consolidate the fragmented tattoo industry through the development of a certification and accreditation program.
Ami James Brands will work with an internationally recognized law firm to define a quality control system to enable the Company to provide high quality tattoo studios with a level of certification that will set the standards of service in a fragmented tattoo industry which generates estimated revenues of more than $1.65 billion annually in the United States alone (http://www.statisticbrain.com/tattoo-statistics/).
With over 35,000 tattoo studios across the United States, the federal, state, and municipal standards and regulations of tattoo providers are as fragmented as the industry itself. Ami James Brands believes this creates a large market opportunity for elite tattoo studios and artists to flourish and excel under an AJBI accreditation program that certifies their competency and strict adherence to best-practice guidelines. The proposed AJBI accreditation system will integrate current California legislation like the “Safe Body Art Act” into its overall program focusing on enhanced sterilization techniques, client records, continuing education, and client servicing.
The average cost of a tattoo is $150 an hour, so a significant amount of disposable income is invested in one’s personal body art. It is imperative the tattoo industry offer the consumer an impeccable level of cleanliness and safety, and a complete suite of aftercare products and services to make sure the tattoo will last.
“The successful launch of an AJBI accreditation and certification program will give us a built-in platform to market our upcoming sanitary and post-ink tattoo care product lines,” commented Ami James, president of Ami James Brands, Inc. “We are working on products to make tattoo artists’ lives a little easier and guarantee consumers get superior products that will help with post tattoo recovery and longevity.”
