We often have people come to Killer Paint to have motorcycle helmets painted. Every so often, we get something a little different. For instance, we recently completed painting a skydiving helmet for customer Jeff V.

Custom Skydiving Helmet by Mike Lavallee, Killer Paint

The shape of this helmet is a bit different than your average motorcycle helmet. It is very compact, close fitting and aerodynamic, with a large visor. As such, there is less usable space to paint, so artwork needs to be effectively placed. For this helmet, Mike painted some of his signature gem-eyed skulls, with plenty of fire in and around them. On this helmet, the cool gray of the skulls and the hot fire contrast nicely, and help the artwork stand out.

Jeff has a tattoo representing his time serving with the U.S. Marines. If you look closely, the hole in the skull pictured below is in the shape of the USMC emblem as well.

Jeff sent us some photos of himself in action, wearing the helmet. You can see how high up they are, as the clouds are below them!
