The background probably wouldn't actually be so pronounced, just some kind of distressed ink so it matches the original design.
Also, I tried some other colors but navy looked the best by far.
Can you think of some others that would look better?

yea, and just to clarify, my original idea wasn't, "hm what kind of crazy ice cream flavor can I think of ?"
it was more like, I started drawing a gorilla face and then added a cone and drippy stuff and called it gorilla flavor.
So I'm not married to the idea of the flavor having to be gorilla per say, it's just that I don't feel like changing it because I don't think there's any reason to and the ice cream part of the idea is not really worth the trouble of changing it.
it's just supposed to be a pink gorilla head on an ice cream cone. Purely aesthetic design. Don't try to make sense of it being more ice cream, or more gorilla, cause I don't even know.
Thanks for the comments :)
maybe it's hard to see but the actual color is pretty pink, it's just kind of dark. if the shirt doesn't make it as it is I'll be ok, it's supposed to be weird anyway. I just don't want to make it look obviously like an ice cream logo because I don't want it to make that much sense I guess. I like people asking, is it really a gorilla head? or just shaped like one? weird.
Anyway, I'm glad someone is at least taking the time to contribute ideas :)
Not trying to make a statement about gorilla slaughter.
just thought gorilla ice cream would look funny and weird.
hopefully people are not too sensitive...
so here's an official statement from the author:
this shirt has no affiliation with any underground efforts to actually eat gorillas. There is no political message or deeper meaning than what is at face value: ice cream that looks like a gorilla head.
