Black Market Art – Kick-Ass Clothing For Men

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

mighty eagleI love the work shirt, which I often call the “gas station attendant shirt.” I’ve been meaning to get one from Harley Davidson for years, but somehow it’s never the right time.

Men’s Eve Long Sleeve Button Up

Men’s Tears Tee

tears teeI 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.

Price: $24.95

Men’s Duel in the Sun Denim Jacket

This jacket is a limited-edition item, with only 150 being made.
