Joes Ring Edited

That’s one sweet ring, Joe. Wear it well. Tony rocks, doesn’t he?

I was just showing off my ring – which has taken on a battered and abused look like a good skull ring should – to an old friend I ran into in my local sushi bar. Man, I’d like to have another of Tony’s creations, one of these days when I get my budget under control (*cough*never*cough*)!

  1. I agree that a skull ring should have a fine patina of violence and decay.

    The real question is: should it be worn to a sushi bar?

  2. I think, to complete the total skull ring review, you should also include subsequent updates and photos of your skull rings. Additionally, if I’m not mistaken, most of the skull rings are silver versus (white) gold…having (white) gold rings cleaned/polished/re-irodiumed and brining back the “newness” (or bands and “regular” rings) is often astonishing…I’d be interested to see how (how-to, also) performing such “maintenance” would be possible, doable and its results.

  3. Yeah, Michael, I don’t own any white gold, and wouldn’t. I’ve seen how it gradually turns color as the plating wears off. I’ve a couple of platinum rings I favor, but mostly I’m a fan of silver or regular gold. Gold is what I favor for my ears (Gradually replacing teh stainless with 14k), and eventually the plan is to also get gold rings for the nipples.

    But gold skull rings don’t call me. The coldness of silver better suits the skull to my eye, though I’ve seen a few I really liked in gold on other peoples hands.

  4. SKULL RINGS MOCK THE EXTREME UNIMPORTENCE OF OUR EXISTANCE. A COLD AND IMPOSING REMINDER THAT WE ALL END UP JUST AS DEAD. NO MORE-NO LESS.WHAT A HUMOR TO THE SOUL WHO TAKES PRIDE IN WEARING THE VERY BEST AN ARTIST CAN CREATE.

  5. silver is also the working man’s look,it pulls no fronts,in a way,it’s more real for our breed,like myself,an industial workhorse,and now a river rat…give me skull motherfuckers!!

  6. SKULL LUST There is no other piece of jewelry that stirs the onlooker’s mind and soul the way a fine skull ring does… It intimidates the timid,the courious stare,the GOD FEARING are troubled,the shallow assume the ring bearer has a ”death wish”. Pirates/bikers wear it as a warning to all who cross their paths. Rockers love it as an existentialist does-as a symbol of mockery of this life and a cold reminder of finality,and with every passing minute,time is running out. For me,the existentialism rule applies. You create your own fate and the amount of success you end with is the result of your choices and all either good luck,or no luck at all.There is no outside force,and when your end comes,you’re dead,no more and no less than the next sorry bastard.I think it’s all a matter of sience,and it’s flat out fuckin’ funny. But on your way to dirt or dust, live as good a life as you can create.Live and love,be as real as you can,and laugh as much as possible.My favorite existentialist is JEAN PAUL SARTRE,the famous post W.W.2 cafe writer in his doctrine”BEING AND NOTHINGNESS”,reminds us that ”all human effort is piontless”. And,my fraturnity of silver skull collectors,wear your collection,rattle the weak for fun,wear your work skulls to work,tatter and scar them,they tell a story of the owners life,how he worked and fought through his time here.And have your shiny clean ones for a nite on the town with your best duds,and don’t forget the honeys out there like”always arroused girl”who see the passion-and LUST. LOVE,DIRTY UNCLE JOE,A.K.A. ”SKI-MAN”
