Would anybody be interested in patches made from exotic hides.snake,lizard,alligator,etc?

I've been working with exotic hides from reptiles, shark, stingray (awesome) and thought about making a few patches as it seems I don't really see it done very often. Im just thinking what to do. A stand alone logo seems ok. I think it may be kinda lame to just have a skin background and the rest just stitched on in. it wouldn't be very practical anyways unless it was a large stitch . Im trying to avoid glue as best possible, but not have to make only large stuff. Also I guess id have to Velcro/snap the back so You could wash the jacket (like that happens.)

Yeah, that would be awesome. I actually saw a Horna patch with a snakeskin backing a few months ago - fukkin sick. Here's a cool example: https://www.facebook.com/patchmasterprod/photos/a.877481422378791.107374...

I know of a guy who made a Damaar patch of pig leather. That was conceptually interesting.

No. I'm not going to wear a dead snake/shark/alligator/other bad ass deadly hunter animal unless I killed and ate the thing myself.

I definitely would! But I like it when the type of leather has something in common with the patch like the 2 I have from the Patch Master. Or like a shark skin patch for Evile's killer from the deep design, MOD's surfing MOD, or Wehrmacht's shark attack to name a few.

But snakes, sharks and alligators were never in a band.

Human skin I would definitely try out. Should also be cheaper and there is tons of humans who deserve to end up as a piece of jacket decoration.

Probably not. I'm not some animal rights type or anything of the sort. My concern is a lot of these exotic animals might be coming from places in the world where the animals are poached, that im against. If its ethically hunted in Canada or the USA, i'm ok with it.

But it would be cool to have a Tygers of Pan Tang patch made from a tiger. Lol

Hahahaha, Get a praying mantas and write on it with a sharpie.

But the thing is, If not done properly or with certain paperwork, A lot of countries customs will dispose of them.
