  • Some wise words from the Czech-French writer. Has anyone read his Unbearable Lightness Of Being? It's incredible kitsch existential mess of a book with no well rounded characters just a speculative discussion on philosophy and politics and the language of the heart. There is a film on Netflix if you're not much of a reader and want to dabble in some of the metaphors of MK. He speaks to my vegan sensibilities with this other great quote...“True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind’s true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists in its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental débcle, a débcle so fundamental that all others stem from it.” all in all there is nothing very "light" about the book. .

  • Tigers!! These gorgeous pins are for the wonderful tattooist @samrivers_curiosities go check him out. Pins are a great little keepsake for your tattoo clients as a bonus treat when they're feeling all feint and fuzzy. Think of the winter months when your fine artwork is being covered up. A pin of your design means your clients can wear your style outside of their clothes too 😊 hit me up next year if you wanna know more. (📸Featuring Sebastain my cat)

  • This year pretty much began with me wanting to start a commotion!  How could tonight's quote be anything other than this pop masterpiece?! I sing this song a lot, pretty much every time someone adorable says the word girlfriend or wife or boyfriend 🙄🤨😖😫🤐🤐🤐 ha ha (jk) Anyway the buzzcocks are flipping incredible. I don't trust anyone who doesn't enjoy this song. In fact I haven't met this person, they don't exist.

  • Yesterday was a wonderful mail day. I finally got my hands on this beautiful object. The @ethos_mag Spring journal. It's even more wonderful than described on the @indiegogo campaign. I feel very honoured to be asked to contribute to this edition. My very talented mucker @von_hooligan did a marvellous job of writing up our interview where I talk about how Pin Head the side project was born and then mutated into a full time labour of love. Kudos to the entire @ethos_mag team for what they do and for getting the feel and design of it so on point. I can't wait to treat myself to reading it cover to cover when I've handed all my uni work in. .

Portfolio

I’ve had the chance to work on some exciting projects with businesses and individuals from around the UK. Here you can read about a few of my recent projects.

About Me

I am an artist/illustrator based in Liverpool UK who designs lapel pins. Some are adaptations of cultural references and some original ideas. I also collaborate with other artists from around the world who I admire. I’m a sucker for cartoons and Wes Anderson movies (you’ll see that if you visit my online shop).

Please contact me for enquiries about bespoke design and service packages for your own business or event. I am looking to work with businesses and individuals to provide pins and patches as wholesale deals. I have very competitive prices and provide a friendly informal interaction during the whole process. There is literally no idea too wacky or question that’s too silly so never be afraid to ask! I love my work and every single new commission gets me excited. I’m really keen to know all about your wonderful projects and businesses and want to make your ideas a reality.

Design

Unique designs created by Pin Head for commission work – Pin Head owns the rights to any original artwork produced. This is to be exclusively used for the merchandise paid for in the original agreement. Please request permission to reproduce these designs for other merch needs or as a brand logo. In some cases it may be possible to purchase the rights to the design work.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy. The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, can be found throughout this site.

1.     Data Portability

GDPR introduces data portability – the right for a data subject to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided in a ‘commonly used and machine readable format’ and have the right to transmit that data to another controller. Pin Head reserves the right to take up to one week to collate all data relevant to a data subject from when the official request is put through. Data subjects must put through a formal request for data retraction by emailing pinheadinstagram@gmail.com with a formal request specifying in accordance to which clause data should be retrieved or handled.

2.     Right to be forgotten

Also known as Data Erasure, the right to be forgotten entitles the data subject to have the data controller (Pin Head) erase his/her personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data. The conditions for erasure, as outlined in article 17, include the data no longer being relevant to original purposes for processing, or a data subjects withdrawing consent. It should also be noted that this right requires controllers to compare the subjects’ rights to “the public interest in the availability of the data” when considering such requests.

3.     Privacy by Design

Privacy by design although a concept that has existed for years now, is now a legal requirement per GDPR. Privacy by design calls for the inclusion of data protection from the onset of the designing of systems, rather than having to rectify the database at a later date. Pin Head will therefore “implement appropriate technical and organisational measures…in an effective way… in order to meet the requirements of this Regulation and protect the rights of data subjects”. In compliance with Article 23 Pin Head will only hold and process the data absolutely necessary for the completion of its duties as well as limiting the access to personal data to those needing to act out the processing.

4.     Breach Notification

Should Pin Head find themselves in breach of any data protection, that may “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, within 72 hours of being notified they will be required to notify the customers and comply with the removal of any data in question “without undue delay”.

5.     Newsletters 

If you subscribe to our mailing list or e-mail marketing newsletter, we and our newsletter partner Mailchimp (based in the USA) will hold your details securely but solely for this purpose. They adhere to a EU/USA agreement that conforms to the new regulations so you can be sure your details are in safe hands. You are free to unsubscribe to our newsletters at any time and have this option at the bottom of every letter we send you or by contacting us by email at pinheadinstagram@gmail.com to be removed from our list. We promise will never spam you or send unsolicited emails, only those we feel you will be interested in relating to our new products, special offers or information relating to Pin Head UK.

These campaigns which are run, will be used solely to notify members of upcoming events, sales and new releases that will be useful or benefit the individual. 

6. Commission Payments 

Pin Head uses third parties Paypal & Quickbooks to create live invoices for payment of bulk pin and patch orders. They do not have permission to use any data from these invoices such as names, addresses or bank details. These are stored securely solely for the transaction in question and are fully retrievable and or erasable if requested. 

 7.  Etsy Shop Privacy Policy

Pin Head sells products through a third party e-commerce platform called ETSY. This is the privacy policy for customers purchasing goods from Pin Head UK through Etsy: When you place an order with us, you will need to provide some personal information to us to enable us to process and deliver your order, e.g Full name, Postal address, e-mail address and occasionally your phone number.
