Ink Kandy Life is a company created R. Donell. L. Benjamin in 2013 to discover a platform to showcase the amazing diverse community of artists, photographers, musicians, models, and extreme tattoo enthusiasts in Salt Lake City! In 2017 he transformed Ink Kandy Life into a lifestyle brand and created Bee Hive Butter for his local tattoo community which is an all-natural and organic full body care product for everyone. Bee Hive Butter is great for both tattoo artists, estheticians, or anybody. It soothes every part of your body from hair to toe! Bee Hive Butter promotes natural healing for all kinds of skin types! Bee Hive Butter is therapeutic and formulated to help relieve itchy/ dry skin, repair and deeply hydrate and restore all types of skin types.

Bee Hive Butter literally melts into your skin and instantly starts the healing process it is "ALL NATURAL & ALL VEGAN".
In 2018 he decided that his next step in the evolution of his company and his career was to build from scratch a new type of Body Art Studio & Art Gallery, and with that thought The Black Art Society was created. With the help of his once apprentices and now growing business partner Tiffany. He worked with the mayor, his lawyer and zoning commission of the city of MillCreek to create not only a new zoning location and standards for body art studios, but a complete new style of Body Art Studio. Steering far away from your typical store front tattoo shop, Black Art Society is reminisce of a mix between spa meets Willy Wonka's artistic expression. From the moment you walk in most clients instantly have a state of euphoric confusion with the entry resembling a modern eccentric coffeeshop, while entering the lobby leaves clients with the idea of maybe they have entered a spa. With each private room boasting the creativity of the artist which occupies it. Black Art Society also has the pleasure of having the high end piercing studio Blue Lotus Adornments tuck on its north side of the building, allowing clientele a full service experiences of a different kind. But to understand it you have to experience it first hand for yourself.
