Your Badass Talismans.
As long as I can remember, I’ve loved skulls. I keep discovering things about them that speak to me in so many different ways.
As the lead singer of various Hollywood bands in my younger days, skulls definitely meant rock and roll. Defiance, power, irreverence. Definitely what one would call Badass. As time has gone by, I’ve found the meaning of a skull to still be this, of course—who doesn’t want to celebrate pushing the envelope?!—but also to be so much more. A skull or skeleton has also become a symbol of unity and inclusiveness for me—no matter who we are or what we look like on the outside, inside we are all the same.
This also translates into my Patron Saints of Badassery—I see the skull as the face of the saint not as a mockery of Catholicism but as my way of expressing that in my world, saints, God, and religion itself has no ‘one face’. We put our own meaning and ‘face’ into and on our spirituality, I don’t believe there is one right way.
Along with faith comes intention and little bit of luck, and that’s where my Lucky Charms pieces come in; simple yet powerful necklaces and bracelets with a single charm that speaks to you. Wear it to remind yourself of where you want to be, what you want to focus on, or proclaim who you are to the world…if it speaks to you, listen.
These Skull Mounts and Patron Saints of Badassery are to help inspire you to get the most out of life—to always be manifesting your Badassery! Choose the one that speaks to you!
Do these talismans really have magical powers?? That’s up to you to decide.
