Matt Bailey, the tattoo artist with a serious fanbase and social media following, is branching out into beverages with the imminent launch of Bone Head Coffee.
Like Matt’s artwork, this coffee is not for the faint hearted. The first roast, Rocket Fuel – a single origin from Guatemala with notes of milk chocolate, blueberry and digestive biscuit – will soon be available online direct to fans worldwide, along with a high-quality enamel tin mug that holds more than a pint of coffee. Each pack of Bone Head Coffee comes with a limited edition, high-end framable postcard of the artwork on the coffee label.
Licensee The Galactic Empire Ltd has great experience in selling high-quality coffee and accessories direct to fans, as they are they powerhouse behind Original Stormtrooper Coffee.
The license was negotiated by Reemsborko, worldwide agent for Bailey.
Rupert Carroll of The Galactic Empire commented: “Matt Bailey has a hardcore following and we will be selling directly to them, proving the concept and building the brand, and we will eventually take Bone Head Coffee into retail.”

Artist Matt Bailey has signed with Reemsborko exclusively for all territories and categories.
Bailey is an internationally renowned artist with a serious fanbase and social media following, whose work is always in demand on people’s bodies as both apparel and tattoos. He has worked with Mighty Jaxx on a collectable toy and also with the hip-hop artists Run The Jewels, designing a label for one of their beers.
Max Arguile of Reemsborko commented: “Reemsborko constantly seeks the most interesting IP out there and I first heard about Matt when he was suggested for a screen print license for one of our anime properties. Unfortunately, the licensor felt it was a little too out-there for the brand. His style and content is often not for the faint-hearted and much of it is frankly NSFW but that still leaves a lot of really commercial imagery that are proven best-sellers and which is already in demand from the retailers that have seen it.
“Funnily enough, in a presentation to a licensee last week, merely the mention of his name was sufficient for them to exclaim, ‘Oh, I love Matt Bailey – if we sign this, please can he also tattoo me?’”
“As my artwork has grown over the last few years, demand for my merchandise has overwhelmed my ability to keep up with it,” says Matt Bailey. “The idea of licensees putting this into retail is very appealing. The fans won’t have to wait for items as they will be able to buy it locally and I won’t have the hassle of shipping and the stress of returns.”
