Death Spray custom paints your head

“Head Set” is the latest series of helmets from Death Spray Custom, the artist responsible for our Dazzle camo AGVs. There’s three separate designs here, “Phrenology,” “Hair,” and “Brains.” All three are a clever take on revealing what’s beneath the actual helmet, but our favorite is “phrenology.” When was the last time you saw some basic black and white text make a helmet look so cool?

Phrenology is a pseudoscience that posits personality traits can be
determined by the lumps and bumps on your head. Phrenologists created
maps of the skull, labeling certain areas with personality traits
supposedly connected to those areas. David (the mad genius behind DSC)
has applied one of those maps to this helmet. Simple, but
transformative, the helmet is now an object of wonder and mystery
instead of a lump of Styrofoam and fiberglass.

This design should be required wearing on a Hammarhead Industries bike,
you’ll see why in a few days.

    I still have yet to see this occur.

    I wonder if there are special editions for power rangers/viking pirates.

    Phrenology is pretty neat, but I think it would make my grande cabeza seem even larger. Would I be biting HFL too much if I went w/dazzle? Sigh.

    I think I prefer the helmetdress helmet covers advertised on this page. And I’m not sure I like those very much.

    Nice ideas… expecially “hair” (in my opinion)
    however, i prefer the integral… :)

    I think it is just a statement helmet. It is not meant to be cool and hip. In my opinion, cooler than heavily airbrushed eagle and wolf stuff on it, though.

      …or fake Mohawks, hello kitty, Anime, or any other lame graphics/accessories placed on helmets.

      So it’s a statement helmet but the statement is not “I’m cool and hip”? So what is the statement, “I’m a dildo”?

    There aren’t a lot of “style” options when it comes to open face helmets. It’s either super-vanilla or retro/hotrod. I’m glad someone is at least trying something different.

    But those pictures. I mean pretty naked girl in a motorcycle helmet. You really have to try pretty hard to screw that up. Somehow, they succeeded.
