More Than Hype Art Collective


How tattoos work and what is the process for first time collectors:

1. Meet with the artist

The first step is to find a reputable tattoo artist and set up a consultation. During this meeting, you will discuss your design ideas with the artist and determine if they are the right fit for you.

2. Choose a design

Once you have found the right artist, it’s time to choose a design. You can bring in your own design or work with the artist to create a custom one. The artist will help you choose the size, placement, and colors of your tattoo.

3. Schedule the appointment

After you have settled on a design, it’s time to schedule your appointment. You’ll need to make a deposit to secure your appointment time and design. On the day of your appointment, you will pay the balance of the appointment.

4. Get the tattoo

On the day of your appointment, the artist will clean and shave the area where the tattoo will be placed. They will then transfer the design onto your skin and start the tattooing process. This involves using a needle to inject ink into your skin.

5. Take care of the tattoo

After the tattoo is complete, the artist will clean and bandage the area. They will give you instructions on how to care for your new tattoo, including how often to clean it and when to remove the bandage.

6. Wrap it up

Finally, you’ll need to keep the tattoo covered with a clean, dry bandage for a few hours or overnight to help it heal. After that, you can remove the bandage and continue to care for your new tattoo as instructed by your artist.

Remember, getting a tattoo is a big decision and should be thoughtfully considered. It's important to choose a reputable artist and take good care of your new tattoo to ensure it looks great for years to come.
