The first full moon in May is known as the Dragon Moon; according to Chinese folklore the Dragon is often seen as the symbol of divine protection and vigilance. It is regarded as the Supreme Being amongst all creatures. It has the ability to live in the seas, fly up to the heavens and can coil up in the land in the form of mountains.
Being the divine mythical animal, the Dragon can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent and bestow safety to all that hold his emblem. The Chinese Dragon is looked upon as the ultimate symbol of Good Fortune.
This folklore has proven to be true for our studio! We’ve been in business for 40 years, have vigilantly protected the tattoo community from undue legislation (warding off those evil spirits) and we have been very fortunate, being blessed with a wonderful and faithful clientele! We will celebrate our Dragon Moon Full Moon tonight as we look forward to many more years in business and Good Fortune! Thank all of you for toasting the Dragon Moon tonight 🙂
