GLORY / Glory


The culture of Taiwanese aboriginal Atayal Tattoos (ptasan) is the earliest origin in Taiwan. For men, facial tattoo is a beautiful and brave symbol. The straight black stripes represent permanent glory. Thus, the creative concept is meant to use Atayal Tattoos symbolizing the everlasting glory with long black stripes applied to renowned figures at all times such as Albert Einstein, Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson, to serve as the best tribute paid to these legendary people. When tattoo culture is seen and accepted by the world, what we know about the world will be probably different.
