At the V-Twin Expo there is much more than custom motorcycles and parts. Anyone "surfing" the bikers & tattoo culture is also there. For example Peter Mui. He is an Oklahoma native with Chinese blood, an identity breaking all the usual cultural stereotypes. Proud of his heritage and to affirm his identity he decided to be known as the Yellow Man. Understanding the value of tattoo art as a vehicle to represent cross-cultural attitudes, he wanted to start a business of wearable tattoos. But first he traveled for a decade around the world visiting the greatest and hard-to-reach tattoo masters. After assembling a collection of masterpieces Peter Mui engineered technical fabrics (MadKool) to receive the art with vivid clarity, while also providing the quality found in top athletic-wear brands. Result? An amazing men & women collection of wearable tattoo art inspired by Japanese Irezumi, Maori Tribal, American Traditional, New School, Biomechanical, and even the rare work from a remote Buddhist monk in Thailand. Now, when your mood changes, you can change your tattoo. The collection is amazing. See it at the Yellow Man.website.
