Sometimes looking to the past for inspiration is the best way to create something exciting and new; this Classic Nautical Mermaid Long Sleeve UV Shirt is no exception to that concept. The artwork on this shirt was inspired by vintage nautical tattoo designs from the late 19th & early 20th centuries. Life at sea was tough, and nary a sailor or seaman would travel the seven seas without collecting a few "souvenirs" of their rough and tumble lives. These "souvenirs" often came in the form of tattoos that recorded their travels and experiences around the world. Weaving themes of maritime folklore, mythological beings, and nautical elements into tattoo artwork was a common practice at the time, and that's how we came up with the design for this shirt.
The central figure is a mermaid (or siren) posing alluringly in front of a tranquil sea, upon which a clipper ship sails in the distance. She calls to the ship on the wind, luring its occupants in for a closer look — perhaps to their certain doom. The entire scene is enclosed within the shape of a ship wheel, and the ship wheel is bisected by an anchor. "Listen to the siren song of the sea" is written within the rim of the ship wheel, and our motto and company name are inscribed in classic, tattoo-style lettering on banners throughout the artwork. The entire look of the piece is an homage to classic nautical tattoos from days past, and even though this design is drawn in a style that would have been popular at the time, it has a look that remains timeless.
