Fan Gets Slipknot Manicure With Band Member On Each Nail
A Slipknot fan recently received a manicure with nail art of each member of the group painted on each of her nails, as seen in a TikTok video from Tuesday, February 8, of a talented nail technician named Miya.
“My client’s nails and what she paid for,” the clip begins before showing some of Miya’s work for The nail ritual, their nail business in Oakland, California. It culminates in Slipknot nail art featuring one of the masked metal band’s earliest lineups, shown in the finely detailed heads of Shawn “clown” Crahan, Corey Taylor, Jim Root, Chris Fehn, the late Paul Gray, Mick Thomson , Craig Jones and the late Joey Jordison. (Two of the nails are not shown in the video, but it is speculated that they may contain other current and former members of Slipknot.)

Miya jokes that the Slipknot fan paid “negative $550 and some Chinese food” for the manicure. In the description of the video, the nail technician jokes, “I’m afraid to tell tiktok the actual prices.”
On their website, Miya states, “I’m a Certified Nail Technician from East Bay. I specialize in hand painted nail art on natural nails or GelX extensions. I pride myself on using the highest quality products and always educating myself on what’s new. nail industry trends.”
