We’re as guilty as anyone else for neglecting clothing for men. There’s a good reason for that: Most vendors only offer a limited selection, and it almost seems like it’s offered just so it can be said that it’s offered. This is not the case with the Black Market Art Company, which specializes in tattoo art clothing. They also have a wide selection of tattoo art prints.
Black Market Art started in 2005 and states that all of its designs are handmade originals created specifically for the company by today’s top tattoo artists. All designs are signed by the artist and printed on the clothing, with the addition of a hang tag with the artist’s name and contact info. Black Market Art furthers its claim to authenticity by stating that you will not find any clip art taken from non-copyright books or graphic designers’ interpretations of tattoo art.
Hopefully what I’m presenting here doesn’t look hipster (I hate hipsters), but the selections here are just a few of the clothing items for men that I like from Black Market Art.
Men’s Mighty Eagle Work Shirt
Order: Mighty Eagle Work Shirt
Men’s Eve Long Sleeve Button Up
Artist: Jarad Bryant
Order: Eve Long Sleeve Button Up
Men’s Tears Tee
I usually go for simple and subtle designs on my t-shirts, but this shirt, despite the size and detail of the image, is amazing. I love the contrast of black, red, and white. I love the skyline reflected in the sunglasses. I love the skull. There’s a total rockabilly vibe on this one.
Artist: Tyler Bredeweg
Order: Tears Tee
Men’s Duel in the Sun Denim Jacket
This is probably the most hipster item here for the simple fact that it’s a denim jacket. I guess it’d be “ironic” to wear one today because either they haven’t been popular since the ‘80s or because it’s hot as hell outside.
This jacket is a limited-edition item, with only 150 being made.
