James DeLury by Ricardo Muniz

Shot on location in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

James is a good, ol‘ Italian boy in the good ol‘ Catholic tradition of respecting your parents and not cursing in front of your grandmother (making the sign of the cross). However, being a good boy doesn’t mean he’s soft. James has three passions: his tattoos, his modeling career, and the cage where he is an up-and-coming MMA fighter. All three come with a good deal of pain. The only soft spot on James is his heart, and, yes, sorry, readers, but his has already been claimed. You can still follow him on Instagram @jamesdelury, though, and you can let him know you support his journey as he becomes that tatted model who fights or that tatted fighter who models.
