The album’s famous cover features a woman dressed up as a nurse snapping a rubber glove.
Next month, hard to believe, the album turns 20. In honor of the anniversary, David Goldman, the person behind the iconic photo, is celebrating in an amazing way.
Goldman posted a photo reel with both the original and outtakes from the shoot to Instagram. He says it was the first record package he ever shot.
“It’s been a great piece for my portfolio even so many years later. Many people tell me that they had the album and or a poster on the wall. Very cool!!” the caption reads.
He later goes on to say he’s offering blink-182 fans a pretty amazing chance to win a piece of history in honor of the anniversary.
“So I’m going to be releasing a limited number of prints showing the full roll of images that the album cover was taken from,” the caption continues.
In his photo, the image in the bottom middle row was the winner. He will be creating custom prints on metal of the “contact print” he used in various sizes—8×10, 11×14, 16×20 and 20×24.
To get one, he says fans can reach out to his email at [email protected] and let him know the size with “blink 182 print” written in the subject.
The pricing for the prints goes as follows:
8×10 = $250 + $20.00 for shipping = $270.00 US
11×14 = $400 + $20.00 for shipping = $420.00 US
16×20 = $500 + $35.00 for shipping = $535.00 US
20×24 = $650 + $35.00 for shipping = $685.00 US

I can’t believe it but it’s true. Next month will mark the 20th anniversary of blink-182 #Enemaofthestate album. It was the very first record package I shot. It’s been a great piece for my portfolio even so many years later. Many people tell me that they had the album and or a poster on the wall. Very cool!! So I’m going to be releasing a limited number of prints showing the full roll of images that the album cover was taken from. As you can see below the bottom row middle image was selected. It says “11×14” on it, that represented the print size that was used. I will be creating custom prints on metal of this “contact print” Images sizes will be 8×10, 11×14, 16×20 and 20×24.
I can go bigger but that will be a special order. The printing on metal looks amazing and will make a great gift or memorabilia for your wall.

In other news, blink-182 just broke the internet after dropping their new song “Blame It On My Youth” off their upcoming album.
You can listen to the new track below.
Even though DeLonge is no longer with the band, he took to Instagram to thank fans for a sold-out tour and the success of the new Angels & Airwaves single, “Rebel Girl,” but also made time to shout out blink-182.
He did so in the form of an Instagram video.
“Just wanted to take a quick second and say thank you so much for the insane response to the Angels & Airwaves song, ‘Rebel Girl,’ and to the sell out of the national tour, our first one in seven years,” he says. “I thought we would have a lot of amazing fans show up, but I never thought that it would sell out in 10 minutes.”
The unexpected success of the tour perfectly illustrated DeLonge’s thoughts in a prior interview on the quickly developing resurgence of AVA.
“I feel like I really know I’m capable of most anything I put my heart and mind to, and I know how to do things that seem impossible,” he says.
“You’ll also see the new blink song [on Spotify],” DeLonge says. “I’m super excited for those guys. It’s cool to see the evolution of their music. You’ll also see Mark’s other band, Simple Creatures. It looks like a little bit of punk rock is seeping through on the national music lovers index.”
