Deeply rooted in skateboard, graffiti, and tattoo culture, REBEL8’s core purpose is to showcase their trademark lifestyle through unique products. The man behind the original artwork at REBEL8 is the legendary tattoo and graffiti artist Mike Giant. REBEL8 founder Joshy D. met Mike Giant in the late 1990s in San Francisco’s then bustling graffiti scene. Joshy ran the popular graffiti website, HiFiArt, and Giant was one of the city’s most notorious writers. Years later, after a couple of brews, a few tattoos, and plenty of joints, Joshy approached Giant about creating a handful of t-shirt graphics. With $500, Joshy printed a small run of tees and sold them out of a messenger bag around the city. REBEL8 was born.
