Pricks of the Month: 10 Enamel Pins for May

Share this:

Spring has sprung and the trees are all trying to have sex with our sinuses. Excuse us while we pop another antihistamine, pull our light jackets out of storage, and shop the hell outta this list. Spring cleaning? Not when it comes to our pin game.

Know Your Power Pin

Knowing is half the battle. The other half involves knives, glitter, and improvised body armor. We recommend flats for that. Glitter Punk Jewellery//$10.78

Hang The DJ Pin

Hang the blessed DJ, unless the music that they constantly play says something to you about your life. In that case, you should hang with them. Loudmouth Threads via Gimme Flair//$8

Bathomet Pin

Scrub-a-dub-dub, our favorite goat’s in the tub. And seriously, this brand wins the “Why didn’t we think of that?” award for the month. Bathomet//$10

Peony Witch Broomstick Pin

Spring is here! Time to grab your broom, sweep the dust out of your house, and then ride off to the Sabbat. The Pickety Witch Shop//$10+

Snarky Saying Pin

This pin comes in three variations: “Bite Me,” “Eat Shit,” and “Go To Hell.” We’d be happy to promote any of those ideologies. Badaboom Studio via Gimme Flair//$12

The Discovery Pin

Full transparency: The author of this article is also the manager of The Poisoners Guild, and the designer of this pin. It’s being included because she absolutely loves the design and is proud as fuck about how badass it turned out. (Loose translation of the motto: “Everything is poison.”) The Poisoners Guild//$10

Girls To The Front Pin

You know. Where we belong. Vichcraft//$12

Embalming Fluid Pins

Demonic Pinfestation creates some of the most detailed, horror-filled pins out there, and this set is no exception. You can purchase any of the colorways individually, or pick up the full set (plus a holo sticker). Demonic Pinfestation//$13+

Holy Hell Pin

When people compliment the pin on your lapel, you’ll need to answer “Thank you,” three times. It’s just part of the deal. The Patient Pin Co.//$13

Feline Pin
