Johnny’s jewelry it’s a kind of party of his body. I can’t remember to see a single picture of him without using a necklace, a bracelet or a ring. A single one… It’s party of his personality.
On his neck, usually Johnny wears a tiger tooth on a black leather cord; a silver dog tag etched with the portrait of Che Guevara; a silver figure of Lord Ganesh, the Hindu deity considered “the remover of obstacles”, on a black leather cord; and a longer silver chain with a shiny round medallion engraved with the name and birthdate of Johnny’s daughter, Lily-Rose.
Johnny has pierced ears, at least three on his left ear and a single one in his right ear. But since mid-90’s, we’ve not noticed he wearing earrings in any photographs.
Johnny wears a silver skull ring on the ring finger of each hand. The first of these, the ring on the left hand, dates from the Dead Man period. The skull ring, like the medieval memento mori, is a constant reminder that life is brief and each moment should be lived to the fullest. The skull ring on his right hand, is similar but not identical to the ring of his left hand. It has the symbol of The Brave engraved on the left side panel, adding yet another strand of memory to the memento mori. On the index finger of his left hand, he frequently wears a large Gold Cherokee head ring, gift from Vanessa on Johnny’s 40th birthday.
On his left wrist, Johnny sometimes wears a silver cuff bracelet, and he has recently begun wearing a watch with a rectangular face. On his right wrist, Johnny wears a brown leather cuff with silver buckles. He also sometimes wears a blue Deadsy wristband, with or without the leather cuff. Above the cuff is a brightly-colored bracelet made of plastic heart-shaped beads in pink and yellow and green; the bracelet was made by Lily-Rose. Johnny has been wearing this bracelet at least since early 2003. In his spring 2004 appearances, he is wearing another bead bracelet as well. The new bracelet fits more snugly and is composed of cylindrical rather than heart-shaped beads, with a few specially shaped beads randomly added. This bracelet was also made by Lily-Rose. He also uses a silver bracelet in memory of Dustin, engraved Today is a gift… have fun.
Here are some recent Johnny pictures with some of his jewelries.
