Actual Pain was founded in 2006 by designer and musician of TJ Cowgill (Book of Black Earth, King dude, among other bands). The Seattle based brand does not advertise, but relies solely on word of mouth. Much of Actual Pain’s continued success is attributed to the fact that the company essentially run by T J Cowgill alone. He personally designs every piece, and almost everything they create is limited to each season and never reprinted. View the collection Here.
