This grenade is not about blowing up, its about showing up. It’s about being there for your boys, wingmanning it, taking one for the team if necessary, and staying true to the code, period!
Traditionally, a grenade is an explosive weapon of war used in the military. However, this piece is meant to represent the profound level of camaraderie amongst men, such as that that exists within a military brotherhood. In a shit show, it’s “every man for himself,” but in a brotherhood, it’s “no man left behind.” For any group, team, gang or tribe of men to exist successfully, it must follow certain codes, and everyone must be loyal and committed to these codes. Otherwise, the entire thing will blow up in your fucken face like grenade. And that’s not a fucken joke, that shit is for real.
This piece is meant to be a constant reminder that you are no longer an “I”, but instead are now an part of a “we”. Guarding your boys back is just the same as guarding family, because that is now what you are!
