A slate gray with a delicate touch of violet. To commemorate our 40 year “Manniversary, the legendary artist and founding editor of the iconic PUNK Magazine John Holmstrom created a custom illustration of the original Manic Panic storefront on St Mark’s Place.

"The latest Manic Panic shade to give us palpitations is Amethyst Ashes, a grayish violet that looks like it’s been pulled from the embers." - Allure Magazine
The illustration on the label is the work of John Holmstrom, the legendary artist who was a founding editor of the iconic PUNK Magazine back in 1977. He is best known for illustrating the covers of the Ramones albums Rocket to Russia and Road to Ruin.
PUNK Magazine featured his caricatures of NYC’s infamous musicians such as the Ramones, Blondie, and of course Tish and Snooky.
To commemorate our 40 year “Manniversary, John created a rendering of the original storefront of the Manic Panic boutique on St Mark’s Place, complete with punkette mannequin, band flyers in window, and graffiti with funny takeoffs of NYC band names.
Holmstrom drew the portrait of Snooky and Tish which is set inside a full moon hovering over their beloved New York City, under the St. Mark’s Place sign.
The color itself was named by our very own fans in a contest that attracted Manic Panic Dyehards from all over the globe. AMETHYST ASHES was selected from the thousands of entries.
