    I ordered a skin from DecalGirl for my new Gen 2 touch. It arrived today and I'm super impressed. I thought I'd post pics of the skin in case anybody else was considering one.

    Yes, I'm a girl so my skin is girly. :)

    Looks a lot like Gelaskins that I use on my iPod touch.

    The skin doesn't cover the screen, it has a matching picture that can be set as the wallpaper to complete the look.

    This looks great and am I mistaken in thinking this is one of the first skin-type protective covers that is available? Impressive if it is because even BSE and IS are lagging ass on their orders.

    Yeah, that's just the matching wallpaper.

    I ordered the DecalGirl skin as a stop-gap. I figured I'd use it until some cases rolled out. But now that it's here, I really like it and I'm going to be keeping it on. I'll just throw it in an iPod sock when I go out so nothing in my purse scratches the screen.

    According to some the screen shouldn't scratch. But you can still get a screen protector if you so choose.

    Hello there,

    That is a cool idea!! I didn't know the existence of such skins. I am seriously thinking in getting one....:D

    If you don't mind ...I got some of questions:

    1-hoy easy is it to put the skin? any bubbles appeared? also...is it easy to remove? how well do both ipod and paint resist scratches?

    2-does it have holes for all accesories? (i.e: earphone, pc connection) silly quetion, but necessary :p

    3-Have you noticed a decrease in the quality of the speakers and or wi-fi connection? how about heating? does it heat more than usual?

    5-how bigger it becomes? that is: I am not going to put inside another protective case, but could it fit into the docking accessories?

    6-any other comments you have?

    Thanks a lot :D

    It was easy to apply. No bubbles that couldn't easily be worked out. I had a DecalGirl skin on my Nintendo DS and it was easy to remove, left no residue and did not damage the finish.

    2-does it have holes for all accesories? (i.e: earphone, pc connection) silly quetion, but necessary :p

    Yep, skin does not go all the way around the sides.

    3-Have you noticed a decrease in the quality of the speakers and or wi-fi connection? how about heating? does it heat more than usual?

    Speaker sounds the same, wi-fi is the same, heat is the same.

    5-how bigger it becomes? that is: I am not going to put inside another protective case, but could it fit into the docking accessories?

    It's a sticker, so the iPod is still thin.

    I check them out from time to time, but I just can't find anything that suits my tastes just right. There are some that I like, but couldn't live with every day. I wish someone would make a skin with custom artwork that didn't have to be ordered in bulk. So far I've stuck with the clear skins for all my electronics. I guess I'm just a boring person.

    Yes, you are.

    Edit: Nice signature.
    Edit #2: You can have an avatar, but you choose not to.
    Edit #3: At least you play the sax!

    Go to vskins.com, you can customize your skin there. It is sooo worth it.
