Custom Carved Skull Plugs

It seems as though a lot of skull lovers are also lovers of body modifications(go figure, right). Today's skulls are a couple of creatively carved custom skull ear plugs made by Tom Kushida an Inupiat Eskimo custom carver from Alaska for Skull-A-Day fan Camel...






I'm no expert but if I had to guess I'd say those were a 00 size or something close. Excellent work on the one of a kind lobe adornments, Tom. They look like they were made from real bone.

I just got a note from Tom...
"That is cool! I like the photos they look good.
One thing is I am Inupiat Eskimo from Alaska.
and it's Tom Kushida in stead of tom kush, I don't know how to change that on DA. but thanks for getting me out there. I appreciate that very much!
