Live Fast and always Die Last! This patch references the speed and strength associated with those that are always pushing boundaries. Never slow down.

I’m interested in juxtaposing traditional handmade crafts with extreme elements found on the fringes of society. My work can be described as opposing forces colliding at lightening speed.

Imagery found in vintage tattoos, the occult, and motorcycle gangs are stitched together with recycled materials using techniques usually relegated to your Grandmothers sewing circle. Serious, yet attempting to take on a B movie Horror film style where ridiculousness becomes genius. The question remains... Can I play with madness?" - Ben Venom

This RUN comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Ben Venom and 1xRUN.
