LA clothing company ripping off the Dringenberg name?

Recommended Posts

So I was browsing through some catalogs in my friend's boutique and came across something very curious. A company called Cartel Ink, or Kid Cartel, has a tank design depicting a machine with baseball-style lettering that says "Dringenberg, (something illegible) Company"

Now, those of you who have seen the LST interview with Dan Dringenberg would probably also find it a bit hard to believe that this guy would license his name off to a clothing company. I find it especially curious, because if he actually did license his name, there would most likely be more than one single shirt with his name on it. I mean the whole point of licensing is to build a brand name, right?

Now I'm totally open to being wrong on this one, and I truthfully hope that I am, but I think that the tattoo community needs to look out for each other and squash the leeches. Sooo if anyone has any fact-based information on this situation, I would appreciate that knowledge before I go ahead and send Dan an email being like "look at this shit."

    • Seriously - what are you expecting to get from this site? You already got opinions and advice. You can't fix a letter so what does it matter what letter it looks like? Are you looking for sympathy because you think you got a lousy tattoo, or validation that the tattoo sucks? I'm just not sure what you are looking for.
    • Depends a lot on where, some on you. I had my calf worked on last Thursday. It was miserable. My other calf was easy, I thought Thursday would be a walk in the park.
