The Metal Mulisha

For those who don’t watch the X-Games, or follow motocross at all, then you probably have never heard of The Metal Mulisha.  For everyone else, they know that the Mulisha is a team of riders who enjoy pushing the limits of their respective sports.  By pushing said limits they’ve garnered a huge fan base, and make money hand over fist by selling their merchandise.

A number of parallels can be drawn between members of the Metal Mulisha and members of the BME community.  While they do what they can to push themselves to the limit of their respective sports for personal satisfaction, modified people also push their bodies to extremes in order to fulfill their needs for personal satisfaction.

Now fans of the Mulisha will tell you that just strapping on a helmet and hopping on a bike is only part of the lifestyle.  The members of the Mulisha all are world renown athletes, with world records and countless medals spread amongst them.  To the fans, these guys are the best of the best, and will go out of their way to support them.

Take for example a recent client of Jamie Henderson from Forsaken Ink in Bloomburg, NY.  He wanted to get the Metal Mulisha skull logo, and Jamie certainly didn’t disappoint.

This particular image comes from the skull tattoo gallery, but more of Jamie’s work can be found spread across many of the other galleries.
