This is one of many commissioned tattoo related artworks that came from the Peter Mui collection after his death in 2009.

Around 2004 to 2005 Mui took out mortgages on all three of his homes in order to launch his brand YellowMan, a high-end tattoo clothing line with the idea of “combining wearable art with Asian empowerment.” He named the brand after a racial slur that he was called during his childhood. For his brand he traveled the world looking for the best tattoo artists he could find to make the designs for his clothing. Mui found 10 of the best and devised a way to transfer an art traditionally done on skin onto clothing. The shirts, adorned with tattoo designs ranging from Maori tribal to American traditional, have become what Mui calls “wearable art,” and the number of artists he used grew to 75. Mui said of his line: “I look at my clothing as being collectibles.” Peter Mui later launched three other clothing brands: Misplaced Cowboy, designer jeans with tattoo art stitching; Mui Mui, Hawaiian-inspired shirts; and Samurai Surfer, casual shirts .

In addition to producing clothing for his own brands, Peter Mui developed signature tattoo clothing lines for Athletica and Harley Davidson and has also produced special edition tattoo clothing collections for Marvel & Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean.
