Welcome to Pig and Chicken
We envision a balance of life and play our goal is to shine a spotlight on the strong bonds and family values inspired by the deep-sea community.
From pets supplies, apparels and merchandise to practical needs we want to maintain a place you'll revisit again and again for quality, value and integrity.
My self and my best bud had an idea a while back to start a brand. The idea was initially to share our outlook with the world as we traversed through this life's hardships, pleasures and joys. After a while our family latched on to the idea as well, and all of our added ideas began to amount to our experiences with other humans as we attempt to be good ones ourselves. With every interaction whether it be stateside or international we learn more about people as well as ourselves.
Those interactions where we are able to teach others what we have learned as well as learn what they have experienced are, in our view, the best.
As a brand we are a collective of our very diverse walks of life that always seek to excel in spreading cheer and sharing walks of life to enhance our own perspectives. Life is hard for all of us however the answer to most of our hardships can usually be found in casual conversation, congregation and fellowship. Be the Change as my sister always says. I am a proud father to Pig and Chicken and thankful of the other fathers, sisters, mothers, cousins, nieces nephews, friends etc that owned it. May our products match our shared needs and interests and God Bless all with profit of a healthy well lived life.
"The Old Salt Says"
Survivors of shipwrecks who had been lucky enough to find some wreckage to cling to were amazed to see the ship's livestock still swimming around after most of their shipmates had drowned. To Allay this fear, Sailors would tattoo a pig and a rooster on the tops of their feet hoping it would help them swim.
During World War II, CWO Cecil S. King had four ships sunk out from under him: heavy cruiser USS Houston, destroyer USS Perry, aircraft carrier USS Langley, and oiler USS Pecos. King could attest to this superstition as keeping him alive and dry until he was rescued each time, he had both tattoos!
Quoted from an article by QMCS (SW/AW) John M. Trail
Divers today still carry on that tradition. We learned of this one afternoon on a back porch in Texas when two young divers in the U.S. Navy, Deepsea JP and his best bud Mongo, explained the story behind the fresh tattoos on their feet. As JP would have you believe, the tattoos themselves make you buoyant and Mongo proudly claims they are a statement of the brotherhood that keeps divers alive.
The Pig and Chicken brand is focused on spotlighting the brotherhood of the deep-sea community. Their family bonds and relationships they have with their beloved pets, traditions and plain ole fun.
The artwork we display is often inspired by, or replicas of, actual tattoos provided to us for recreation.
