Derby Kiss Examples

Yeah, you know what we’re talking about. Those battle wounds we all so gladly boast about and all too often show off. Well, here is your chance to not only show the world how badass you really are, but to also win some really great safety gear to better protect your not-so-easily-fixed body parts.

Here’s the dealio: you go to practice, play your heart out in a bout, or simply “go for a jaunt” one afternoon and get your little tushy handed to you. If it’s a mess at first, take the photo then and there. If you know it’s coming, wait a few days for your true colors to shine, and take a pic for what the heck’s sake! Basically, we are asking this wonderful derby world we so happily live in to show off what we have all worked so hard to accomplish. Sometimes the track gets the better of us, sometimes we get rocked by our awesome teammates, and sometimes we simply trip on our own skate bag, but after the dust has settled and the rink rash has set in, we have some seriously cool bruises to strut around town with or a little bloody nose to better smell the roses.

Show Us Your Derby Kisses is a way for us to give away some awesome safety gear that will help protect you and for you to feel as though that fishnet burn wasn’t for nothin’. Post your best kiss, and know we are cheering you on! Your bodies work hard for you, sometimes even harder than we can give them credit for. So let them have their glory, and wear your toughness on your frickin’ sleeve! If you’ve already captured your awesome derby kiss and are looking for ways to heal, check out SISU’s article on remedies for all these beautiful bruises.
