In honor of my personal favorite fashion house, Balmain, this collective of sassy safety pin innovations is sure to make you appreciate the decades-old punk rock style. As a pioneering status symbol of the punk rock movement, thanks to icons like Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols, the safety pin has become a tool of so many uses in contemporary culture.

From Balmain's famous use of the safety pin in the past few seasons on everything from dresses to opulent red leather jackets, to safety pin bow ties and body art that may make you cringe, this list of innovations will surely make one realize how many different things a safety pin can be used for.

With Halloween coming up, you can use this gallery of sassy safety pin innovations to inspire your upcoming costumes.
