Airbrushed Motorcycle Helmets

Enough of the depressing posts about crashes and the importance of helmets. We all know your motorcycle helmet need not only be protective, but it needs to look good. One way to know you look good and to make your helmet your own is to get it Airbrushed. 
These amazing artists can take an image-whether it be from their head or a photo-and reproduce it with amazing accuracy. These artists have taken their skill and applied it to ever medium imaginable. Custom airbrushing can be found everywhere, such as airbrushed T Shirts, airbrushed batting helmets, airbrushed shoes, airbrushed jeans, custom airbrushed motorcycles, airbrushed motorcycle helmets, even airbrushed bodies!
Some of the most impressive airbrushing can be found in the form of murals. Some of these artists could be called the modern day Michelangelo's, turning plain vehicles into mobile Sistine Chapels. There are many websites available to people wishing to learn this craft, and the equipment is fairly inexpensive. There are also many video's available for people wishing to learn the craft.
There are many amazing artists and if you just search "custom airbrushing" you'll be able to see these amazing works. The art of airbrushing has also carried over into many other industries such as tanning and finger nail art--just to name a couple.
If you want to get started airbrushing here are a few airbrush brands and airbrush paint brands you may want to take a look at: Iwata, Paasche, Badger, Aztec, Badger, Master Series, Grex airbrushes, Createx, Auto Air, Golden, Com-Art, Aqua Flow, and House of Kolor. You will also need an air compressor of some sort of air source. Some good airbrush compressor brands are (my personal favorite) Silent Air -- which makes very little noise while working.
