Skull Mug

So. Over the summer I blogged about the awesomely skully work of skeletaldropkick. I had finally gotten around to ordering one of her kick ass skull tiki mugs and, within six hours of receiving it, dropped it on the concrete in the parking lot of work while getting on the bike.

Needless to say I was heartbroken.

For one reason or another I had not gotten around to ordering a replacement (cheap bastard), but today a friend of mine sent me a text that she was drinking out of a mug with a jolly roger on it and that it had made her think of me. I responed that _I_ needed a mug with a skull on it and promptly headed over to etsy and, within minutes, had purchased a replacemnt mug!

Yaaayyy!! Can't wait for this baby to show up.

And that brings me to my NEXT point. Back when I ordered my mug this summer I had talked with the Skeletaldropkick about possibly doing a giveaway. She was kind enough to offer up another one of a kind Skeletaldropkick mugs for me to offer to one of our loyal readers (we do have some, right?). So. Long overdue: I have another mug, similar to the one displayed here, in white, that I would like to give away! Yaaayyyy! Free skull mug! I'll even take care of the shipping so long as you reside in these united states!

How, you may ask, should be able to obtain such a prize? Good question. Hmmm... Lemme think for a moment. I hadn't planned this out very well...

Tiger's Eye Skull

So. I was given a really cool skull carved from labradorite over the weekend and I instantly fell in love with it. I loved it so much I decided to do some shopping over on e-bay for other gemstone skulls and ended up winning this beauty! I didn't do much research so I'm not sure if I got a good deal on it or not, but I really don't care. It didn't break the bank and I think it kicks ass pretty hard. I used to love Tiger's Eye as a kid, so it's kind of [insert that word I can't remember here].

Anywho! Just wanted to share. Carry on.

Stay tasty.

Skull House

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I mention this guy a lot, but I just bought my fourth skull from Skullhouse and had to tell SOMEone!!
This is Cyrus' Amber Celadon Holes Skull and it RAWKS, right? Cyrus says, "Subtle layered texture and circular carved holes cover the surface of this tectonic skull. It is glazed in my rich honey yellow amber celadon." Whatever. That must be potter speak for, "THIS THING KICKS ASS NOW BUY IT!!!11", or something.
Ok. Just gloating. Do yourself a favor and go buy one or two of these things. If you do, please tell him Zook sent ya.
Stay tasty, people.

Skull-a-day sez: "Danish Graffiti-Artist decay “short for Decadence, long for DK - Denmark” told us that they only paint skulls"
I was unable to track down any more information on the artist, though I only did a quick google search, so I guess the facebook page linked from skull-a-day will have to suffice for now. If anyone knows anything more about the artist, I'd be thrilled if you'd share.
Happy Friday and stay tasty!

Skulls On Board

Skullhouse. One of my favorite shops at These slip cast skulls, created by the mad-talented "Cyrus The Potter" are amazing to behold. I currently own three Skullhouse skulls and am certainly not done.

One of Cyrus' latest, "Skulls On Board" is a grouping of four porcelain skulls with a dry metallic surface that he's paired with a salvaged wooden "shelf". Looks amazing.

Plenty of more details at the Skullhouse listing for this beautry at Skullhouse on

Cheers! Stay tasty!

Beneath The Skin

A while back I was contacted by the very talented Dauvit Alexander who asked if I'd be interested in providing a tattoo design to be used in Beneath The Skin, an art show he'd been invited to participate in. I gladly accepted, worked out a design and shipped it off.

Beneath The Skin: Final Inks

The project has several steps, the first of which was the original tattoo design as shown. Next Dauvit is using the design as inspiration for creating a custom-built tattoo machine which will feature, among other things, the skull and heart as pictured; hearts cast in copper, skulls in silver.

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 41

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 21

The final step of the project, as planned, will be to have the original design tattooed onto Dauvit's calf, possibly as part of the "Beneath The Skin" show itself.

Dauvit does some truly amazing metalworks, specializing in jewelry. I'm fortunate to own a custom-made bracelet that Dauvit created for me and I must say that man is a master. Do check out his other works at Flickr: The Justified Sinner

Cheers! And stay tasty!
