Bondage, dog bites and Actual Pain

actualpain2014

Here’s a couple of printed-all-over shirts from Actual Pain. Not for the faint hearted. The back of the bondage shirt is even more NSFW than the front. I do wish there had been a photo of someone wearing it, to be able to see how realistic the result really is.

Anyway, these are pretty pricey, but not only are they printed all over, the product description also says:

This tee is printed using a special Dye Sublimation process and the shirt itself is 100% polyester, giving it a super soft hand (unlike the hand of the Master).

I thought that was funny.

All death all the time

So, Flying Coffin. You have to pay attention, because they keep putting out good stuff.

Sex & Death!

I’ve featured Sex & Death‘s genious Morrissey/Mayhem shirt before, but there’s so much more (and seriously, it won’t hurt you to see that one again)! Let’s check out some of the great output from Sex & Death. There’s the Guns n’ Roses shirts:

The Sonic Youth/Sex & Death shirt and the great Madonna/Metallica mashup:

The GENIOUS Morbid Angel/Miley Cyrus that makes my credit card fingers itch, and the Death/Drake mash:

There’s also a recreaton of David Lee Roth’s old shirt and a Beavis&Butthead/Breakfast Club shirt that I’m not loving very much, but still… there are way to few Breakfast Club shirts out there.

Heavy Metal Parking Lot

Very metal print on a classic 70s/80s style raglan from Heavy Clothing. This would be the perfect thing to wear while reenacting Heavy Metal Parking Lot or at a Dazed and Confused live.

Keep on fucking!

I’ve been following a lot of chopper/biker/van types on Instagram lately and they have a lot of nice stuff cooking, once you weed out the few idiots who think nazis are cool and funny. Through Pork Magazine, I found out about this raglan, which every sane person should instantly put on their wish list for x-mas.

This one is made by Riding Easy Records and it has a certain je ne sais quoi about it, don’t you think? Get it here. Naturally, it’s also available as a t-shirt and a patch (is it just bikers, or is embroidered patches making a massive comeback?).

Metal, Star Wars and other dumbass stuff

Chances are, you’ve already seen these – I’m not exactly lightning fast these days. Here are som shirts that I find kinda good, despite the fact that they’re all dealing with stuff I don’t give a shit about: Star Wars, Metal and Metallica. All of this is stolen from Metalsucks.

metalwarz

First, the Metal Warz shirts. I just can’t resist logo stealing/tweaking/spoofing, as yo may know, so I thought this was a lot of fun. Made by the talented Sean Tidy http://tidyink.com/ it comes as no suprise they look really good. If I never see another Slayer spoof shirt again though, it’ll be too soon. Get these here.

larz

Next up, the ‘Tallica shirt. As I said, I don’t give a damn about Metallica, except for when they did the first Misfits cover song, but I dislike Lars Ulrich as much as the next guy so… I gave some brief thought to explaining the joke on this shirt, but seriously – if you don’t know, you really need to read up on popular culture. Go read the Wikipedia Metallica entry or something. Get this shirt here.

Black Sanctuary

Here’s a company I can’t quite figure out. Some shirts seem genuinely inspired, while others are just zazzle-style pun shirts, inspired by metal and satanism – a very odd mix. So this time I actually bother to read the company blurb and find out that Black Sanctuary is based in Italy (non-english speakers trying to be funny/cool/whatever in English is always tricky) and apparently, they’re “into the occults”. Ok.

This part, though, I like:

Each item is digitally printed, not a cheap peel off print,but a professional directly-on-fabric one.
The vintage,dirty,rotten,shabby or sometimes even pixelated look of each tee is done on purpose.
Each item is carefully handmade and unique,which means that any shirt may slightly vary in color.

Here’s some of Black Sanctuary‘s massive output:
