T-shirts are the best mediums to express who you really are. Whether you are young and flirty, dark and sassy, or just plain tough, designing the t-shirt and printing it will reveal what you really feel or think. For the geeky and the geek-at-heart, there are a few t-shirt printing artwork that just puts a big smile on one’s face. Here are the top ten t-shirt printing artwork for geeks.
There’s No Place Like 127.0.0.1

Geek Love Poem
This shirt is actually sweet, if you think about it. But then, only geek girls would find the hex codes for colors sweet and romantic. The geeky love poem reads: “Roses are #FF0000; Violets are #0000FF; All My Base Are Belong To You.” The last line refers to an Internet Meme that spread in 2000 to 2002, originating from the opening cut scene of the 1991 European Sega Mega Drive version of the video game Zero Wing.
A geek will surely appreciate a steampunk design on t-shirts. Any artwork is good as long as the inside of an engine or clock is visible, complete with all the nuts and bolts. Steampunk refers to the style and art genres that meld the Victorian era inventions with modern technology. The steampunk science fiction and fantasy genres include the works of HG Wells and Jules Verne.
The tags are the most common HTML elements recognized by geeks. Any self-respecting programmer and those who work for websites should know about these famous tags. Indicating a BODY by wearing a t-shirt printing the code for all to see is plain genius.

I Will Not Fix Your Computer

There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary and those who don’t.
This one sentence can baffle most people who expect 10 to mean ten. In the world of computers, binary language is composed of only 1s and 0s. The sentence means there are only two types of people: one who understands binary and one who does not.
I failed the Turing test.
The Turing test refers to the theory that an Artificial Intelligence, commonly encountered in the form of a chat bot, can fool most people into thinking they are having a nice conversation with another human being. If you fail the Turing test, then you are definitely nearer to being stupid. Chat bots are very easy to detect, especially when they start telling you they do not understand a sentence that is fairly easy to understand.
Brain Loading… 45% Please Wait.
Wear this shirt when you are half-awake, or half-asleep. Either condition applies. Just like a loading icon flashing its progress, the Brain Loading shirt is cool for sleepwear. However, this kind of shirt is definitely not work wear, or your boss would think less of you.
