Hi guys and gals,

I keep noticing Wei Shen's Tattoo during Trailers or on Screenshots. Looks like a Dragon. Pretty sweet !

Kind of reminds me of Furious Ming's Tattoo from Jade Empire... Which I just loved BTW. And of course Kazuma Kiryu's Tattoo from the Yakuza Series.

Now the question I have in mind is... What's the story behind the tattoo ? Members of organized crime such as the triads, the yakuza and others usually carry those kind of tattoos.

I'm curious, does this mean Wei Shen already was involved with a criminal organization before ? Or does he carry the tattoo just to fit in... seems unlikely. Or is there some other reason behind it ? A Cop with such tattoos is also rather unusual. Anyway, Some ideas would be welcome ;)

Have a nice weekend !

Cheers

If you look at the link for the screen shots posted by me, you can see that instead of a dragon, wei shen has ninja stars instead. Do you think that we will be able to pick out our tattoos

Tattoos will be required in this game, as most of the triad members in real life have tattoos, it is like a traditional thing for them and every gang as it's own unique art.

In the new interview he mentioned the tats... Not sure if u can pic ur own since we been the same ones on him, but if we cant then thats gonna b a big part of the story. This might mean that before life in SF maybe he wuz part of a triad gang in his teen yrs b4 he wuz a cop so that gave him more of an edge to b the guy for the job

Peace

That's as detailed as it gets. There aren't that many pics of Wei's tattoos so you'll have to wait for more screenshots or release day.
