FYD: Did that “Type” tatt hurt? Who did the work?
JH: It did, but not nearly as much as you’d think! Daniel Albrigo at New York Adorned (the Brooklyn branch) was the tattoo artist and the lettering is by me of course. He had a light touch, it hurt far less than the tattoo on my back.
Jessica Hische is fantastic, a true example of making good work and inspiring others to do so as well.
