Like more and more YellowMan and YMX fans, Angela exclaims that she “pretty much only wears Yellowman,” because “the artwork is gorgeous the way it moves with the body! But also because it keeps me warm in the winter and keeps the sun off in the summer.”

For those of you that haven’t yet experienced the thrill of wearing YellowMan and YMX clothing, you might want to take note of Angela’s testimonial. The fabrics really do feel sensational, and the artwork is all authentic – by seasoned artists around the world. There is something for everyone. And, although the fabric and exquisite prints might seem delicate, they can be worn hard, as Angela Chabot clearly demonstrates.

If you are serious about tattoos and motorcycle racing, you might want to check out the Dainese Tattoo Suit. The leather motorcycle gear is packed with impressive Maori and Samurai-inspired motifs. But this elaborate armor doesn’t come cheap. Expect to pay around $3500 US for it.

If the Dainese Tattoo Suit is out of your budget, or if you don’t race motorcycles, you can get an authentic tattoo shirt on performance fabric at YellowMan or YMX at a fraction of the price. As a matter of fact, one of YellowMan’s own artists, Sweden’s tattoo master Tony Paukku, has a love of motorcycle racing himself. Check out some of Tony Paukku’s tattoo shirts here.


YellowMan's White Dragon tattoo shirt is a great alternative to the Dianese Tattoo motorcycle suit. Or even better...with it's performance properties it would be perfect to wear beneath the suit!

You know something is catching on when people start showing up to YellowMan’s trade show booth wearing YellowMan clothing. Such was the case when YellowMan presented its new line of YMX tattoo cycling jerseys for Men and Women at this year’s Interbike trade show in Las Vegas. In fact, YellowMan’s superior technical fabrics weilding killer tattoo prints were so inspirational that people wanted to buy the samples right off the rack!


Something is going right when fans start wearing YellowMan clothing to the YellowMan trade show booth.

Walking the Interbike trade show, there clearly wasn’t any comparison to the YellowMan garments. All other technical garments felt synthetic, were bulky or multi-layered. Prints were generic, simple, and lacking in thematic range. But YellowMan’s garments attracted awe in their lightweight, silky hand feel fabrics, and impressive library of original art. It’s no wonder they attracted so much attention.

The good news is that YellowMan’s YMX athletic line is expanding, so those that wanted to buy off the rack will soon be able to buy it at, Athleta, through Terry Precision Cycling for Women, Paragon Sports, and beyond! For advanced notification of availability, be sure to sign up to the YellowMan mailing list. You don’t want to miss out!

Who else other than YellowMan can do this?! Now you can browse for your favorite tattoo shirt based on tattoo style. First of all, no other tattoo clothing brand has the range of tattoo art to pull this off, secondly, where else other than YellowMan can you find the quality of original art to put behind each style?

Browsing YellowMan garments by tattoo style isn't just helpful, it's educational.

Browsing YellowMan garments by tattoo style isn't just helpful, it's educational.

What’s great about this new browsing-by-tattoo-style feature is not just about finding your favorite biomechanical tattoo shirt, it is also educational. By now everyone knows there is a huge tattoo craze out there, but how many people actually know the difference between American Traditional and New Skool tattoos? There are several tattoo style references online, but they tend to be purely descriptive. YellowMan’s visual reference is a road map to the top tattoo artists in each style.

Perhaps you aren’t shopping for a tattoo shirt and are thinking of getting a tattoo but can’t decide what style to get or who should tattoo you… or maybe you are simply curious about tattoo styles and the artists that create them. Whatever your objective is (or isn’t), is worth the time navigating as a tattoo style reference.

The folks at NYC Renegade Report just posted a great primer on today’s tattoo apparel industry. The core of their article, entitled “Pseudo-tattoo clothing vs. the real deal“, highlights the differences between “tattoo-inspired” clothing and “authentic” tattoo clothing. Of course YellowMan squarely falls into the “authentic” category, in the purest sense.

However, the article fails to point out that Ed Hardy uses the moniker “Hardy Authentic” as a strategic branding implementation, which we believe is misleading. Ed Hardy (the brand) is essentially Christian Audigier (not tattoo artist Don Ed Hardy).  The NYC Renegade Report article does give YellowMan due credit, though, for pointing out that YellowMan is all about the art and the artists that create it.
