Look at Me Everyone… I’m Pretending I’m Hardcore!

Hey tough-guy! Not hardcore? Want to pretend you are so you fit in at Burning Man? Maybe you want to get inked, but are scared it will hurt. Or you like the idea of tattoos but don’t know what you want to get. Maybe you’re afraid of catching Hep C from the tattoo needle. Well Sleeves Clothing is the product for you. Nude colored, translucent tshirts with prefabbed popular tattoo designs already printed on them. Full sleeves in just 30 seconds. Choose from gangsta, biker, tribal, and Japanese. *eye roll*

Ha.. for those of you who don’t know me well or can’t pick up on my sarcasm, I think this is a lame idea. I understand the whole idea of getting tattooed as being an act of personal expression and a form of counter-cultural art. Anyway, the concept of these shirts seems to fly in the face of everything I’ve always understood body work to be. How embarrassing would it be to show up at a hot party or concert with brand new fake tatts only to found out 3 other people bought the same shirt and have the same tatts. Safe, user-friendly, sterile, un-artistic tattoo shirts for the masses. Heh… these guys will probably make a million bucks and they make me want to rethink my plans to get some more work done this summer. 🙁

PS. If you see a guy wearing a shirt like this at the club, chances are he’s probably stuffing socks down the front of his pants too to make it look like he’s got more than he actually does. I think this product will appeal to the same type of person.
