Born Brian Todd Collins on April 1, 1986 in Los Angeles, California, Kid Ink got his moniker from his love of tattoo. He lives up to his nickname with tattoos from head-to-toe. Not only was he instantly recognized for his tat-covered body but he was also set apart from many other rap stars for his distinctive rapping skills.

His talent was nurtured since he was working behind the control board as a producer. He worked with the likes of Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Sean Kingston. "I started making the beats because I already had several artists trying the rap thing out, so I thought I would be more useful supplying the production," he said.
