I've been after a pirate tattoo for a while but could never choose an artist to render it, until the recent release of Jon-Paul Kaisers Captain Sturnbrau with Toy2R.

I met JPK at the Kidrobot London Fatcap launch and have exchanged emails & texts ever since, so I dropped him a quick mail to not only ask his permission but to ask him to supply me with the actual drawing that the toy as created from.

He was flattered and also though this was 'Awesome' and the rest is history! I've just left the Tattoo Studio and here are the results.

The Tattoo was done by Sam Fisher at Physical Graffiti Custom Tattoos in my home town of Cardiff.

    J*RYU's It's a F.A.D. Dunny is likely the most complicated version of Kidrobot's iconic platform. So it's no surprise that JPK took on the challenge of customizing the 20 inch figure.

    Wow! The latest JPK custom is impressive on multiple levels. The customized Dissected Lego Anatomical figure by Jason Freeny and Mighty Jaxx features super detailed painting (just look at that face!) and a striped tie.

    The workers revolution is inevitable, as JPK keeps adding to their numbers. Joining the Woodsman and the Blacksmith, the newest laborer to take resin form is the Miner, equipped with hardhat, headlight, and pickaxe.
