Kriss Kyle performs some awesome tricks in Kaleidoscope, a Red Bull produced video, and shows off his brilliant tattoos!

A Red Bull sponsored and produced video Kaleidoscope is a project about thinking differently and innovation. Featuring BMX rider Kriss Kyle riding and doing tricks on a unique and changing course that challenges you to 'see things differently'. The project has taken over 18 months for Red Bull to organize and produce, though Kyle has been involved from the beginning.

While making the project Kyle had the full support of Red Bull and the finished video shows that!! "Red Bull didn’t give me a budget, didn’t put any sort of limit on it, and said build whatever you want and we can do it"

 “The whole concept is just like looking through one big kaleidoscope, with all the different shapes and colors,” -Kyle 

Aside from the never-before-seen tricks other prominent features of the Kaleidoscope film are the awesome tattoos that cover Kyle's body! With pieces on his arms, chest, stomach and neck, Kyle is pretty inked up. His first tattoo was at age 14 and was given to him by his brother, the word 'BMX' tattooed proudly on his upper arm... others soon followed!

Proudly written on his neck are the words 'Unit 23 Home Forever'. Unit 23 was Kyle's local skatepark growing up and set him on the way to becoming the BMX legend he is today.

Arguably the boldest tattoo of Kyle's is the large lion head tattooed on his stomach. An impressive piece the ink is a symbol of power and the fact that nothing can stop him and his BMX!!
