Legend:

There is no evidence that Edward Thatch (Teach?) ever took another man’s life.  Legit.  He was a super non-violent dude (until he began going mad from syphilis).  The Robin Hood of the West Indies, if you please.  The guy freed hundreds of African slaves. He then gave them the option to simply “be free” and go about their business, or to join his crew, which most did.  Every man who chose to stay as a part of his crew, received an equal voice.  They were paid the same as everyone else and they were given a place to call home as a freeman.  It’s been shoved down our throats that pirates were murderous criminals.  Why?  Well, because they were ENGLISH slaves that the pirates were “stealing”.  Blackbeard was freeing English slaves and they wanted him hanged for it because it was costing England a fortune.  Seriously.  No shit.  #TheHistoryTheyWantUsToKnow       

Wicked soft tri-blend tee that won't show your nipple ring(s).  Like all of our tees and hoodies, our designs are printed into the fabric - not pressed onto the fabric.  That means you won't have to spend your summer walking around with a plastic poster glued to your chest.      

  • 50% polyester/25% combed ringspun cotton/25% rayon jersey
  • Shirt will not prevent shrinkage while skinny-dipping.  But like all of our tees and hoodies, you can use it to cover up.  
  • Sizes are standard men's/unisex sizes.
