Mohawk Skin for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5/1.7.9

This mohawk skin by Turtlax is nothing short of excellent.  Its subject is simple – a punk rocker wearing black and red with an awesome red mohawk and a cheesy grin.  Its execution, however, is near flawless.  This skin features a black coat with red accents on top of a red tee-shirt, black pants with silver chains, red boots, and of course a subtle test of Minecraft’s relatively new ability to edit left and right arms independently – one hand is gloved, while the other has a wristband.


If you are a fan of the punk rock style, or just want to look awesome, this skin is absolutely for you.  It is clear, well-shaded, and not overwhelming in any sense.


This skin is 64×64, meaning that it only works with Minecraft 1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5 and higher!


Installing the Skin


For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.


For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:


  1. Download the skin’s .png file;

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.


Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.  What is your favorite clothing style, and have you found any great skins to match it?  Let us know in the comments below!
