Tattoo-inspired T-shirts

By Gavin Jewkes, 24 May 2014

If, like David Beckham and Pharrell, you're already inked up to the eyeballs, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with tattoo motifs could be considered overkill. However, if you admire the artistry but have kept your time under the needle to a minimum, this pick of handsome ink-inspired tees is a nice way to inject some attitude into your summer wardrobe.

Whether you go for a monochrome, skull-print top like the long-sleeved ASOS one below, or you prefer something bold and colourfully statement like the wicked Lacoste alligator-fighting-man version, they'll add that gruff, men's man edge to your look that normally only a fully inked sleeve can bestow. 

We'd recommend keeping the rest of your look low-key with a pair of black or dark grey skinny jeans, and maybe throw a beanie into the mix. And there you have it. All the edge, with not one bit of pain. Genius.
