Idea: Wear your DNA on your sleeve

DNA ShirtThe other day I thought I saw someone wearing a shirt with a DNA pattern. When I got closer, I realized that the shirt just had little drawings of trees all over it. But then I got to thinking, why not? These days it’s not too expensive to get your “DNA fingerprint” made, right? Several companies, like DNA Artistry and DNA11 will already create custom artwork from your DNA, so why not take the technology in a different direction and make shirts? Having a pattern created from your DNA should be a simple step.

Okay, it might end up being an expensive shirt, but look at that pattern. It’s futuristic, yet retro. It’s 1970s meets 2070. It’s pret-a-porté meets your DNA. And they make perfect gifts. Nothing says “I love you” better than your DNA on your loved one’s clothes, right?

“…and isn’t it true that your DNA was all over the shirt?”

“But.. your Honor…

“Please answer the question!”

DO NUT BUY FROM DNA ARTISTRY!!! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!! We tried to buy a kit and they never sent it. It was suppposed to be a present for my birthday from my girlfriend. She ordered it and it never came. On the phone the kit was always “on the way.” Their payment structure leaves no recourse other than court and they are sure that no one wants to go to court over less than 300 bucks for a DNA kit. We nicely tried to get our money back and they will not return our phone calls. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!!!

Goes great with a nice pair of jeans?
