Tattoo T-shirts are a set of unique limited edition shirts printed using hand carved linoleum stamps. These prints are based on images of sailor tattoos from the turn of the last century. Before tattoos became a part of mainstream culture they were worn by out casts, rebels and sailors for whom they held a special significance, a swallow for example symbolised 5000 miles travelled and a compass meaning the sailor could always find his way home. Each linoleum print is based on one of these vintage tattoo designs each with a special meaning attached to it.

T-shirts can be bought at Sluijter & Meijer on the Witte de Withstraat Rotterdam or can be ordered at a cost of €29.95 plus postage email for more details.
