Putting zombies somewhere better than in your head (Annnnnd, that song's now in there for the rest of the day. You're welcome.), Forbidden Ink espouses the often-undead-crazed weirdness of PA via the tee-borne works of a graphic artist whose past jobs included packaging designs for products ranging from athletic supplements, to sodas, to bagels, aka Prince Fielder's shopping list. Sampling the coolness:
Dock Ellis: This tribute to the only acid-aided no-hitter in MLB history depicts the game's date plus the namesake pitcher's sideburned head floating amidst a sea of gritty black and yellow swirls, making it eerily similar to what Dock saw in the mirror in that morning.
Zombie Labor: Influenced by the
mindless, shuffling people of Pittsburgh region's history with zombie-film shoots, this shirt endorses undead labor in a bold, angular style reminiscent of Communist propaganda posters, only swapping a revolutionary's hand with a corpse's.
Bandana Hoodie: This super-soft front-zip jawn's emblazoned with the company's signature bandana pattern, with Rorschach swatches surrounding a curly-haired girl with a flower in her hair, which Prince Fielder just ate, thinking it was "flour".
