These Alternative Pet Products Embrace Heavy Music and Tattoo Culture

 - Aug 18, 2015
Punk Paws is a line of alternative pet products developed by Brit Joshua Thorpe, who was looking for a way to combine his biggest loves in life -- heavy metal music, tattoo culture and cats.

The whole ethos of Punk Paws has to do with caring for animals. The brand reminds us that people who enjoy heavy music and tattoos, whilst often stereotyped as being rebellious or intimidating, are often genuinely caring people with a love for animals.

Many of the Punk Paws products display a sense of dark humor and embrace punk culture. For example, there's the 'Sleep With The Fishes' grooming comb that adds a Gothic twist to the typical feline comb. The packaging for these alternative pet products also embraces skulls, crossbones and other visual elements of punk culture that add a splash of personality and humor.
