Logo #157: Offspring

Designed by Alan Forbes for Offspring in 2000. Not just another skull ready for inking on one's body, it's a subtle and knowing meditation on the force of one's intent; how deeply and brightly it can burn - and how easily snuffed out such schemes are when it comes to the ravages of time / life / fatigue (circle one or more). Designed for the band's "Conspiracy of One" LP, it points out that the cosmos of vengeance and lust for justice burning in one's head can be - without the support and reinforcement of like-minded individuals - doomed to failure if it's just one man tearing up the plans.

Thus, the Song of the Moment is "Friends" by Elton John.
