Airbrushing is not very expensive. An artist will charge between $50 and $100 to airbrush a motorcycle helmet. The costs all depend on the design you choose, the colors needed, and how large it is. The more time it will take the artist, the more he or she will charge. If there are a lot of colors, it will cost you more. If the design is large, it will cost you more.
Riding around with a solid color helmet is like renting a billboard and then leaving it blank. I’m sure a smart person like you surely has something to say - why not shout it out loud with a wild, badass, cool (or D. all of the above) motorcycle helmet graphic? If you’re thinking it’s all been done, think again. We’re not talking pinstripes here. How about some extraterrestrial rock and roll up in your business, or robots, or zombies?
Unless you are an airbrush professional, you will need to take your helmet to a specialty airbrush shop to get your motorcycle helmet airbrushed. The artists at these shops are extremely talented and professional and can offer you suggestions of what to get. If you already know what you want, then go ahead and bring a picture with you so that the artist can get an idea of what you are looking for. It is always better to provide too much information as opposed to not enough information when it comes to things like this.
One technique uses an air gun for the application and the other uses a brush. While the difference in techniques seems simple, the style that results is dramatically different. With more surface area to work with, including the front chin guard and visor, the full face helmets are open to a LOT of options. Some of my personal favorites are the Smiley Bandit Helmets and the Crystal and Spike Helmets. Half Helmets, 3/4 Helmets, or retro-style also have a large surface area to work with for custom painting, airbrushing, and adding accessories.
If you have been riding a motorcycle of any kind for any amount of time you probably know that the helmets that you choose to wear come in many shapes, sizes and designs. Some helmets can sit high on your head, tight side-to-side, or even tighter yet from front-to-back. The key to finding a great fitting helmet is knowing your exact head measurements and finding a great fitting helmet by researching which helmet brands are most suitable for you (your custom comfort and needs.)
