Iâ€™ve been into skateboarding for about a decade and mustaches, well…not quite as long. The latest project by artist Lawrence Melilli makes a great combo of the two.
Although you might have seen this around a bit, we love Melilli's current series of hand painted skateboards which all feature a distinct and classic â€˜stache. Available as a one-off, each mustache is retired once it's been painted. They make for a humorous decorative piece but shaped from Canadian Maple wood the deck offers a pretty good ride too.
Future plans are in place for a limited run of silkscreened editions and we can see The Mustaches teaming up with an established skateboard company to produce the designs for the masses. Odds are this first round of decks will become collectors items.
Custom designs are available so if you've got a mustache you want to see on a deck it will take about 10-14 days to produce. Prices range between $200-$250 and can be purchased by contacting Melilli directly at moostache [at] themustaches [dot] com. Visit The Mustaches for more info.
