Isaiah Toothtaker is not only a man who takes many teeth (we’ve heard rumors there’s a Mason jar somewhere). He’s also a man who wears many hats (some of them maybe made out of his enemies’ teeth). This summer, Spork Press released That’s Not Relevant, a collection of would-be emojis designed by Toothy in order to address the noticeable lack of graphic shorthand for concepts like “Love Sosa” and “Brrr.”
If the Tucson, Arizona artist’s name rings a tone, it could be because he owns acclaimed tattoo shop Staring Without Caring, raps alongside folks like Max B and Gunplay, and/or looks terrifyingly stylish with a 30-pound gold chain around his neck. Never one to rest on one project’s laurels, Isaiah just dropped a tape via Spork too — the Nine Inch Nails-sampling ?OTHING collection — but he took time to weigh in our favorite emojis.
Below, find Toothtaker’s explanations and examples w/r/t how to use these images.
