Once relegated to the realm of counterculture, the tattoo has become a ubiquitous presence in the fashion industry of late. And we are not referring only to the ink pieces that began to appear on the skin of more and more fashion models but also to the clothing industry itself.

Brands like Ed Hardy, Sailor Jerry or InkAddict create tattoo inspired clothing for men and women, transferring the philosophy and aesthetics of tattoos in the world of fashion.

And they are not the only ones. We bring you another label with a unique and original approach on fashion, with designs and choices of fabrics that seem to be tattoo inspired: HEMET.

We’ve found this small independent label based in Southern California through a gorgeous dress with skulls and roses motifs wearing their signature that really impressed us. We decided to take a closer look to the brand’s clothes and we’ve found a wide variety of women’s apparel that features a beautiful selection of tattoo inspired skirts, dresses and aprons, stylish and high quality items with original designs.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner men have to be on the lookout for the right gift. Take a look to the image gallery below and visit HEMET’s website and you’ll find something for sure.
