If you’ve ever wanted to be the proud owner of a pink vinyl hand flipping the bird, now is your chance. HUF, in collaboration with Japanese artist Haroshi, have created an exact replica of HUF founder Keith Hufnagel’s hand giving the middle finger. The first iteration of the piece was made in 2015, after Haroshi took precise measurements and detailed photos of Hufnagel’s hand in order to cast an accurate model.

HUF first opened in 2002 as a small boutique in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District. Hufnagel, a professional skateboarder, was inspired to launch HUF following his globetrotting experience as a skateboarder. Seeking to create clothing for skateboarders, by skateboarders, HUF has catapulted into the mainstream with its recognizable minimalistic logo and stores across the globe.

Retaining for $120, only 50 of these bold fuchsia middle fingers will be available at HUF’s Los Angeles flagship store on Fairfax Ave beginning June 27th.
