Iron Man 2 – Whiplash

Jon Favreau is back with the latest installment of Marvel’s Iron Man 2. Last year, Tinsley Studio had the pleasure of being commissioned to create prosthetics and tattoos for the film’s villain, Whiplash (Mickey Rourke). Christien Tinsley and Mike Mekash designed and fabricated the transfers (see our services page for more information on our award winning, proprietary process) which composed most of the character’s look. Under the supervision of the films Makeup department head, John Blake and assisted by veteran artist Ken Diaz, Mekash acted as Rourke’s personal makeup artist. The end result is a dynamic look comprised of applied facial hair, prosthetic transfers and Russian themed Tattoo Transfers.
