One of my dad’s main hobbies when I was growing up was collecting and cleaning skulls, so I probably feel a bit more comfortable with bones, teeth, and cartilage than the average person (my brothers and I used to play with one particular manta ray exoskeleton as if it were a GI Joe doll). Even so,… READ MORE »

Like a lot of people, my teeth were pushed and pulled with a variety of contraptions during my formative years. It all started innocently enough in 5th grade when I got spacers. Tiny rubber bands were wound between metal brackets that had been twisted around my back teeth. This was the first sign that my… READ MORE »

A single animal tooth, sure. A tiny cast bronze animal skull replica even, that’s fine. But I draw the line at wearing human teeth — real or otherwise. And frankly, while I know I’m into some weird stuff style-wise, I have no idea why someone would want to wear another person’s dientes. Nevetheless, if you… READ MORE »

There’s tons of jewelry featuring teeth and fangs, we get it. But this tooth ring featuring a “genuine human tooth” in a fancified rose gold setting is a little too real for comfort. Are you supposed to brush it at night before you go to bed, too? Ack. [Loved to Death, $140] … READ MORE »
