YellowMan introduces the Chinese Lions tattoo shirt for women.

YellowMan celebrates Asian tradition with the spectacular new Chinese Lions tattoo shirt for women.

Chinese guardian lions, otherwise known as Foo Dogs in the West, have held protective powers over Chinese imperial tombs, palaces and temples since the Han Dynasty (206 BCAD 220). After being formalized in the Ming and Qing dynasties the regal creatures have been popularized beyond palaces, and can be seen in front of hotels, restaurants, and even in front of houses.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Guardian Lions:

The lions are always presented in pairs, a manifestation of yin and yang, the female representing yin and the male yang. The male lion has its right front paw on an embroidered ball called a “xiù qiú” (绣球), which is sometimes carved with a geometric pattern known in the West as the “Flower of life” The female is essentially identical, but has a cub under the closer (left) paw to the male, representing the cycle of life. Symbolically, the female fu lion protects those dwelling inside, while the male guards the structure. Sometimes the female has her mouth closed, and the male open. This symbolizes the enunciation of the sacred word “om”. However, Japanese adaptions state that the male is inhaling, representing life, while the female exhales, representing death. Other styles have both lions with a single large pearl in each of their partially opened mouths. The pearl is carved so that it can roll about in the lion’s mouth but sized just large enough so that it can never be removed.

Guardian lions/Foo Dogs aren’t unique to China. The Shinto in Japan also have celebrated them, and perhaps even predate the Chinese Buddhists. But the lion’s essential embodiment of protection, strength, courage, wealth and success remains essentially the same in both traditions.

Back detail of YellowMan's Chines Lions tattoo shirt

Guardian lions are frequently seen in traditional Asian tattoo, as is represented in YellowMan’s Chinese Lions tattoo shirt. The lions, depicted with decorative colored spots, weave in and out of intricate compositions. As with the sculptural representations guarding imperial palaces, the tattooed lions embrace the wearer with protection, success, and courage.

YellowMan founder, Peter Mui, left behind a web of legacies, not least of which is his oldest daughter, T.V., the new starlet in Julie Taymor‘s Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Several years ago Peter Mui embarked on a license agreement with Marvel to produce YellowMan and YMX shirts Marvel characters interpreted by tattoo artists. Years later, his own daughter, T.V. has found herself in a lead role in the $65 million Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. How’s that for being a visionary!

For those planning to see the spectacular musical, YellowMan will soon be selling a few technical and cotton shirts at the theatre.
