Congrats @buler! Just got married myself (10/10)

 

Also, I just realized @Qube's cube head totally reminds me of OG @ordo's head, and that made me smile...

I'm curious to see this, if you have some picture :)

Damn your bodysuit is amazing!!! I wish I had the foresight and dedication to commit to a piece like that. I’m covered in scribbles and half regretting it every day lol :blush:

that aside your new pair fits perfect! thats exactly the fit I was going for as well. i hope they’ll be a just part of memorializing your cat.

@chicote I had some good guidance early on. From there it has been a lot of commitment, time, pain and money. We'll see if I regret the latter come retirement. Haha.

I'm going to part ways with my WW2 jacket with the contest patch, sz 42. Will put on eBay this week end but feel free to reach out to me before that if you're interested.

No. 18 checking in. I decided to do a goofy little stages of dress fit series for ya. These are after a week or so of wear and a nasty 72-hour stomach bug. I fill them out a little better when I'm eating properly, but the basic idea is there. After full stretch, the fit is exactly what I was aiming for. With no belt, they slouch low on the waist, but hug the hips perfectly. Add the belt, and they sit two inches higher up on the waist for a proper fit. Enjoy. Or don't.

@shredwin_206, yeah, hopefully at some point over the next 16 months I can get around to posting some more detail shots of the suit. That's just the top half! Haha. As for who, the torso was done by five different artists over the last 17 years.

J Medina did my back

Chuco Moreno did my front and left underarm

Freddy Corbin and Bert Krak did my sides. Freddy did the black and gray. Bert did the Tex Avery and pinup.

It all started with my second ever tattoo from Sebastian Orth at Otherworld Tattoo. He did the color chest piece back in 2003(?). He's really the one that passed down a lot of wisdom and perspective that helped shape how I approached getting tattooed and greatly influenced the final product.
