“If you guys like what you see feel free to book an appointment! You might even see me there!”

Loren was operating a forklift that fell 50ft off a bridge on September 27, 2019.

He hasn’t let that stop him though, and he now inspires millions of people with his remarkable fightback and recovery alongside his wife Sabia.

As is often the case, his loving fans have been quick to comment on the post he shared showing off his new sleeve.

One wrote: “That's badass man!”

People were loving the artwork, with one noting: “Those axes are amazing. The entire piece is but my eyes are drawn to the axe”.

Some were unclear on the meaning of parts of the design though, with one fan asking: “That’s very impressive. I can see some Pasifika patterns coming through.

“Is that what you intended? A connection to the Southern hemisphere & Aotearoa/ New Zealand”.

Others asked for more updates on his progress, while others made efforts to chuck a joke into the ring, with one saying: “Is that a turtle? It looks cute, but it’s upside down!”
