Do you ride a bike and worry about your safety but think helmets look dorky? Well now you can look like a real dork with this beautiful Phrenology Chart helmet! This bicycle or skateboard helmet is one-of-a-kind and hand-painted by DJ Baskin. The design is based on an old diagram of the late Nineteenth Century pseudoscience. Helmets are coated with a shiny varnish that prevents water damage and chipping.
I can paint using a color pallet of your choice and a phrenology chart custom to your personality so you know the exact parts of your brain you are protecting!
The helmets will be made to fit you–please send me your dimensions. I typically paint on Knucklebone or Bell helmets, but if you want to provide your own helmet, I will deduct $30 from the total cost.
Review from fashionably geek
Unless you’ve read Moby Dick, seen the Simpsons episode entitled “Mother Simpson”, or end up taking this helmet back in time to the 1840’s, chances are that no one will know what the hell Phrenology is. Sorry, Franz Joseph Gall.
I love it! How much? Who cares if people are clueless as to the history of this stuff! All the more reason to wear it! But then again, I collect and listen to acoustic phonographs… (with analog audio disks of pressed Asian bug poop as software).
LOL I love it!!! 🙂
OMG!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!! I ride to work often. I guarantee not one single person in my office would get it. I’m tempted……
