I'm new to tie dyeing and I wanted to recreate that sort of "stormy" look that stussy makes on its t-shirts. For example, this one https://wellgosh.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/s/t/stussy-8-ball-tie-dye-ss-tee-blue-1.jpg

would anyone know what dyeing method I would have to use and/or other techniques?

here's another example

HI Sunny,

Thanks for your question.
There are a couple of methods that could give you what you are looking for. One is ice dyeing, the other is low-water immersion.
Check out this thread for a discussion on ice dyeing: http://jacquardproducts.com/forums/discussion/comment/14395#Comment_14395
and I'd recommend taking a look at images for ice dyeing on your preferred search engine.
There is also a great tutorial on low-water immersion dyeing on Paula Burch's site:
http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/lowwaterimmersion.shtml
Again, I recommend viewing different images for the low-water method of dyeing.
One or both of these can give you what you are after - to get the greater un-dyed areas you'll want to make sure you scrunch your tee pretty tight - that helps resist the dye penetration.

hope this helps
