YellowMan unveils artist Roger Ingerton's Animal Kingdom tattoo shirt.

New Zealand tattoo artist Roger Ingerton has been tattooing since nine years old, when he accidentally jabbed a pencil in his hand. His skills have since been refined, specifically diving into traditional Celtic, Samoan and Maori Tā moko art. YellowMan’s new Animal Kingdom tattoo shirt (retail $180) exemplifies Ingerton’s signature art style, which infuses his broad treatment of ethnic styles in a contemporary execution.

The back of Roger Ingerton's Animal Kingdom shirt borrows motifs from traditional Maori Moko art.

Ingerton’s Animal Kingdom shirt presents a kaleidoscope of fantastical creatures of land and sea, executed in a mesmerizing Escher-like puzzle. Perhaps the signature of the piece is the back, featuring a Maori Tā moko face, or mask, design, also infused with animals of various kind. Amidst all the traditional Polynesian and Samoan motifs Ingerton inserts American Traditional elements, such as hearts, sparrows, and angels.

YellowMan’s Animal Kingdom shirt comes just in time for the 2010 holiday season. It makes a perfect, festive, original gift. Made with YellowMan’s silky-soft, high-quality MadKool fabric, it offers exceptional comfort and can be worn as a formal or casual garment. Its moisture-wicking fabric properties also makes it a perfect base layer or athletic garment. It’s vivid, sharp colors are fade resistant, and although the art will make you want to treat it with kid gloves, you can wear it hard. What more could you ask for in a garment!
