Hello, does anyone knows how i can get permission to use a Marilyn monroe image like the ones attached here for my T-shirts. I have seen a lot of different t- shirt brands use it. But how or from who they get permission to use it?



Thanks,
Ginnette

Obviously, these are not original photos. They were created by an artist. So there are multiple levels of permission needed...

1) Permission from MM's estate to use her likeness.
2) Permission from the copyright owner of the original photo.
3) Permission from the artist who created this specific artwork.

If you are serious about MM licensing, there is contact info on her official website:
Contact Information for Marilyn Monroe | The Official Marilyn Monroe Website

You should expect to pay yearly fees plus royalties based on sales. They may be somewhat conservative about how her likeness is used. So you will need to be prepared to follow whatever creative guidelines they extend to licensees.

If you get any info from them, please come back and share it here. It could be very useful to others.
