Spikey is a bed of nails artist whose hair is a great visual pun for his job, "There's nothing clever about my hair: it's coloured and hardened with acrylic paint, which keeps it rather brilliantly rigid and weather-proof. It is also cheap and available in every possible colour under the sun."

Once a week Spikey redoes his hair, "My bathroom always has mirrors that give a 360• (ish) view of my head. It takes 1 1/2 hours and involves shaving new patterns into the sides, washing the old paint and spikes out, spiking it into sections using soap as gel. I colour it with the paint and chop the spikes down."
