This octopus T-shirt is styled after traditional Polynesian tattoos, which are famous for their intricate, twisting lines. In ancient Polynesian culture, an octopus symbolized complexity, intelligence, diversity, mystery, illusion and insight. Wearers of this shirt won't suddenly acquire these traits or regenerate lost limbs, but they'll sure look cool.

Hand screen printed "Tattoo Octopus" design on Alternative Apparel, style aa1070 Basic Crew. These shirts are lightweight, comfortable and ultra soft. Black ink on Army Green.

Note about the image:

I originally executed the design on this shirt for Tahitian Noni International. I thought it’d look cool on T-shirts and approached them about the possibility. They agreed that it was a great idea and kindly gave me permission to use it here.

Frequently asked questions about ScatterbrainTees

They are "fashion tees", which are higher quality (and cost us more!) than an average tee, and they do run small! It's best to the size charts shown in the photos or description of each shirt listing. The men's shirts run a bit small, and the women's shirts are form fitting and run even smaller. If in doubt, measure a shirt that you know fits and compare it to the size chart.
Our focus is on the original art of artist and shop owner Michael Phipps. Custom designs take a very long time to prepare and print, so printing a single shirt or small run with a special design is very expensive and not practical. Your best bet is to find a local print shop with a DTG (direct to garment) printer, which is best suited for this type of work.
We do! The art is all original and is screen printed right here in our shop! We take the DIY aesthetic to the extreme.
Probably! Please write us and let us know what you'd like.
