"The world is finally ready for us."
“Patron Saint of VALs” and new Malibu local Jonah Hill recently celebrated his status with a Brothers Marshall inspired “Body Love” tattoo.
The logo, lightly borrowed from Body Glove, features the iconic yellow hand except not in its classic style but making the sign language gesture for “love.”
Comments on Hill’s Instagram page were universally positive. @kookoftheday weighed in, hoping that the star of Superbad might consider a KOTD tattoo next. Famous surf water photographer Daniel Russo replied, “Should have gotten one that says ‘soft top’ instead.” Renzo Gracie from Brazilian jiu-jitsu fame shared bumping knuckles emojis and Zoe Kravitz said, “Yesssssssss.”
The wonderful Brothers Marshall, Trace and Chad, shared that they drew up the logo in the early 2000s and are happy that it has found a wonderful permanent home, telling BeachGrit, “The world is finally ready for us,” which brings up a very important question.
If you were going to tattoo one surf logo onto thyself, what would it be?
The Hurley H?
Quiksilver’s mountain and wave?
A funny twist on a classic like Jonah Hill, Santa Brewz instead of Santa Cruz for example?
