Pricks of the Month: 11 Enamel Pins for December

Share this:

The shadows are growing deeper every day, peering into our windows with their un-eyes. The cold embrace of unforgiving seasonal death surrounds us, oblivious to the harsh forced joy of twinkle lights draped from the trees, and we are helpless in its grip. Warmth and hope are distant memories. All is lost. Surrender to the void.

Or just stay inside, pour a stiff drink, turn the music up to 11, and browse our selection of pins. The void doesn’t care what you do.

Nihilism Pin

What’s better than something? Nothing. Inner Decay//$10

The Unknown Woman Lapel Pin

Image via Creepy Company.

This pin based off the death mask of L’inconnue de la Seine is the epitome of the beauty in death. Also, the fact that copies of the death mask were sold as art is proof as to how bloody morbid the Parisian Bohemians were. Creepy Company//$9.99

DÖD Enamel Pin

Image via Torvenius.

Pretty much everything looks more badass when it’s in Swedish (“DÖD” means “death,” in case you aren’t a Swede). Torvenius//$10

Death Moth Pin

Image via Crunchy Fingers.

This Death’s Head Moth goes a step beyond most designs by adding a gristly rib cage. And we’ll go a step closer to covering our battle vests in moths, thanks. Crunchy Fingers//$12.49

Castlevania Death Pin

Image via Two Crows Printing.

We’re pretty sure Castlevania‘s Grim Reaper was just hanging out with Dracula between reaping shifts. You know, just a couple of dudes getting together for beers. Maybe throwing a movie on. Anthropomorphized depictions of our own mortality need friends, too. Two Crows Printing//$10

Funeral No Parking Pin

Image via Creepy Company.

“Whose funeral?” they ask. “Mine. Yours. The world’s. Does it fucking matter?” you reply, before vanishing in a puff of ennui. Creepy Company//$7.99

Death’s Head Pin

Image via Dana Glover Art.

As usual, Dana Glover nails it. Dana Glover Art//$10

“Enjoy Death” Pin

Image via Wir sind die Toten.

If you gotta do it, might as well enjoy it. No use crying over spilled life force. Wir sind die Toten//$11.81

Marley’s Ghost Pin

Marley's ghost enamel pins

Image via Pinny Dreadful.

The Marleys were dead to begin with, the lucky bastards. Pinny Dreadful//$9.99

Midgard Pin

Image via Cat Coven.

A Norse-themed pin related to an awareness of death? Of course we like it. Also, it just looks wicked. Cat Coven//$10

It Will End In Tears Pin

it will end in tears enamel pins

Image via Life Club.

Pessimistic? Realistic? We’re just calling things like we see them. Bring on the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Life Club//$6.90+
