Why we love what we do

Gods Inked Apparel aka “ A Conversation Starter” was founded by David Crouch CEO, poet, and writer in 2017. 

David was fascinated by words at an early age, and having a mother who was an artist that made the marriage of making shirts inevitable. David was taught the importance of the power as well as the intent of them. Which fueled his desire to create t-shirt designs.


As David's influence in the poetry community grew;his desire to make his mark grew with it. So the seed was planted when his signature of wearing shirts with powerful slogans on them whenever he performed poetry. His first t-shirt phrase was “Black Women are Poetry” and it received an overwhelming demand that motivated him to start Gods Inked Apparel where each shirt was influenced by God.
