etnies and etnies Girl launched their collaboration with Club Tattoo at the etnies New York showroom last week with “LE MUSEE TATTOO,” an exclusive art show hosted by Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. The event featured tattoo art, tattooed models, live tattooing and of course the highly anticipated etnies and etnies Girl Club Tattoo shoes that will be hitting stores in June.
etnies is rooted in skateboarding and self-expression, so collaborating with the like-minded artists at Club Tattoo allowed the brand to create a truly unique product for its consumers. Inspired by art, individuality and skateboarding, all of the shoes feature traditional tattoo artwork and are available in two vulcanized styles, the popular “Bernie” and “Fakie,” for both men and women.

Club Tattoo has plans for expansion globally, and has come to be known for its artistry and professionalism.
