Customizing griptape is fun, this ones a bit incongruent with the liquid swords art and the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt but still pretty hyped on it.

When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.

So sick! How can I get that Maggot Brain grip?
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

Thanks mah man. Unfortunately a certain Kyle Mcdonald bought it the second my local shop put it in their inventory. I gotta say those were made some time ago.. I thought grip tape art was a thing of the past for the last 2-3 years until now.

You guys got any recommendations on what kind of paint & brushes to get to paint some stuff on the grip tape?

I'd want the stuff to look good but not affect the grippiness at all. Also spraying isn't gonna work for what I want to do and those paint markers are a bitch as they get fucked up and you can only get rather thick lines with them.

i just use deco color painters pens. they're cheap and they won't fuck up the grippiness. get the thinner ones if you're worried about thick lines.

I used it in the past and thought it was pretty good. The colors underneath were a bit muted, but you could still see through it clearly. The grit was really visible as well so that might be detrimental if you're doing something with very fine details, but I'd back it for the most part.

Thanks a lot for the answer, hope it all works out for me.

This is the first time Iíve looked at this thread, some very rad art in here. As someone who has used blank griptape his entire life, a lot of this is foreign to me, but still cool nonetheless.

How long do you guys spend making the more elaborate, layered art? Just curious.

Made a collage with cutouts from my last ever university textbook might as well get my monies worth; this is with minilogo clear grip and it looks good. It does show the grit more than others but I have found that MOB clear grip is the worst in terms of image clarity.
