MAN-E-NEWS// Custom Salvation and Rebel Inks from JC Rivera…

Swiftly following the awesome Dante’s Inferno inspired Dunny we featured at the weekend, Chicago based artist JC Rivera proudly presents his latest two customs, entitled “Create” and “Pain”. Using Secret Base’s Salvation and Rebel Ink sofubis, Rivera has gone for a Neo-Traditional approach to the paint work on these guys, infusing a mixture of “Day of the Dead” styled skulls and pattern work with old school tattoo flash. As always, JC has also managed to work his sculpting magic, with the subtle addition of horns and “Bearlee” styled boxing gloves on the “Pain” Rebel Ink and a skull base for the “Create” Salvation Ink really helping to make these gorgeous pieces pop… Unfortunately these guys were created for a private commission, so if you’re looking to score a similar piece, your best bet is to contact Rivera through his site here.
