Arminaa is an American fan artist and author known for her high-quality photo manipulations of both TOS and reboot Kirk/Spock, Kirk/McCoy, Star Trek RPS, Steve/Tony and Sherlock/John.

Using digital manipulation software, she took base images from the internet and original photos of the characters, blending them together into artistic and life-like collages. She published most of her work on Livejournal, but her art has also appeared in a number of zines.
