Pinstriping is the art of precision lines upon motorcycles, hot rods, and nearly anything else you could think of. It brings out a custom paint job more so than just a single color of paint. It’s one of the last handmade painting jobs not overtaken by machines, and is still beautiful to see and even more to watch in the progress.

Pioneers such as Dean Jeffries and Kenny Howard (aka Von Dutch) in the 50’s which spawned artists further down the road. In other words, they started the Kustom Kulture which surrounded a culture in of sub-genres such as Greasers, Mods, Skinheads, Rockers, Rockabilly, and Psychobilly that each had their own specific addition in fashion, custom work, and music.
