Based in San Francisco, REBEL8 is a clothing company that creates original hand-drawn tees with an emphasis on tattoo-inspired artwork.
REBEL8 was first created in 2000 when Joshy D. came up with the name and Mike Giant came up with the look. However, it wasn't until April of 2003 when our first line of t-shirts debuted. In just over two years REBEL8 has expanded greatly and continues to grow each day. Our goal has always been to make the best and the most original clothing. We care a lot about the products we release, our name, and our brand. We are a solid company that focuses on producing solid clothing.
Working with timeless traditional tattoo themes, modern garments, and unique graphic placements, we focus on one item at a time and make sure it is just right before we begin work on the next.
Mike Giant illustrates all the graphics by hand: a process that can take upwards of five hours per piece drawing time. Once he is finished, each graphic is printed using film shot directly from the original artwork. This process allows the graphics to be printed on a shirt without the use of computers. Printing the "old school" way. In our opinion, this process results in a higher quality print, and helps maintain the integrity of the original artwork.
