Why so grim, slim?

WHAT'S UP WITH THE NAME?

The word "patayin" is of Filipino origin and is synonymous with the word death. In the Philippines this word brings on emotions of fear and despair. To put an end to an existence, to extinguish the light. It's a negative word to say the least. That said, balance is everything and where there is evil, you will also find good.

Although the meaning of the word is morbid, the context we've put behind it is a stark contrast. Like the "Ying and yang", a perfect balance is provided. To us, focus is placed on new beginnings and shining light where it was once dark. It's the mindset we keep and morals we stay true to.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

Our mandate is to bring your vision to life and to exceed your expectations. 

A tattoo is a very personal choice and is not something that should be taken lightly. For many, the decision to get a tattoo is the result of experiencing a significant life event, which has often left deep emotional scars in the individual. At Patayin, we're empathetic to your experiences and we will do everything in our power to develop a beautiful piece of art that is not only visibly appealing, but also speaks your story.

Perhaps you feel tattoos are more of a statement or personal style. You don't have a specific "story" you would like to tell, and you just want something that looks good.

We carry a large selection of pre-made flash tattoo designs ranging in a variety of styles and categories. Some of our more popular choices are of floral designs, typography and American Traditional classics.

You're physically located in a different country but would love to have us design your tattoo.

We've had many clients from across the globe reach out to us for a custom piece. Your tattoo is made to order and we will work closely with you to ensure every aspect of the design meets or exceeds your expectations. At the end of the project you can expect the finished art piece scaled to size, as well as a second "outlined" version you can bring to any tattoo artist to have a stencil created. 

There are no egos here. And those "prima donna artists" out there are quickly exposed for the frauds they are.  

There are absolutely no egos here. We're 100% family oriented and that extends to all our customers. No one likes dealing with a "know-it-all" or a person who thinks their "shit doesn't stink". I'm sure you've experienced a person like this at some point. At Patayin we encourage personal growth and strive to provide all the tools you will  need to become an artist yourself. Whether it be in applied arts or digital design, we will provide you with informative tutorials, advice and case-studies that will help you grow as an artist or design professional. With over two decades of professional design and applied arts experience as well as receiving a formal education in fine arts and graphic design, we are confident we can add value to any of your art endeavours. The best part, all of this training is provided for free. Keep checking back often for new content.

We're more than a brand, we're family.

Patayin Gang is a group of likeminded people who are deeply emotive individuals and fiercely loyal to the ones they love. The passion and advocacy we have for #patayingang goes beyond words. We actually live it through our actions. Once you represent Patayin, you become family. And by joining our family you will have the support of our entire community.

We wear our hearts on our sleeves, literally and figuratively. 

As a lifestyle brand we feel it's imperative that we represent the characteristics we hold dear. We do not allow society to define us, creating our own path to walk in life; we celebrate beauty in what others may find repulsive; we wear our stories on our skin; and we will die or kill for the ones we love.  We offer a wide collection of apparel that embodies all these values, while providing you with a unique style and quality product.
