Savin Abel Guitarist Starts Tattoo-Inspired Clothing Line
Memphian, Saving Abel Guitarist, and Rhodes College graduate Scott Bartlett is launching his own tattoo-design inspired clothing company!
The company launched its Web site, www.tatcodesign.com, two weeks ago. Members of rock bands Shinedown and Buckcherry also have developed their own clothing lines within TAT Co. With the rock musicians wearing their creations at concerts, the lines have built-in marketing. Much of the merchandise has been sold at on-the-road trunk sales.
Memphis native Zach Myers of Shinedown, Barry Kerch of Shinedown and Xavier Muriel of Buckcherry also promote their signature lines while touring.
Bartlett, who graduated from Rhodes in 2000 with a degree in classical guitar performance, minored in business administration. But he lets a silent partner – the buddy from the bus who helped him come up with the idea – handle the day-to-day operations.
One thing Bartlett insisted on is that the clothing be manufactured in the U.S.
