Artist John T. Unger, the creator of Bad Ass Paddles, says he often works with recycled material and that tires are such a huge waste product its insane.
Initially he wanted to line the metal paddles with used tires, but sadly, they didnt have enough tread to leave sufficient spank marks.
Instead Unger uses leftover tire re-tread material, which he says helped him achieve the look I wanted.
The artist offers spankers The Original Bad Ass Paddle, The Master Mechanic Tire Flogger, which he says is more flexible and delivers more sting and the Talkin Trash Custom Tire Paddle, which includes the word(s) of your choice in a street-sign motif.
Unger is sure the bondage and fetish crowd will steer towards his tire paddles, but adds, Theres gotta be some eco-freaks that are into some freaky stuff too.
Paddles are $60 to 80 and can be purchased at www.tirepaddle.com.
