For the 2009 Motorcycle season, Dainese proposes the Tattoo Ykz. Prof. racing suit, an item that speaks a new language filled with ancient symbols and the values of yesterday’s warriors expressed through an innovative working of the leather.
The concept of Tattoo is centred around the art of tattooing, which is given the task of interpreting the style of the modern biker as it succeeded in expressing the spirit of valiant fighters centuries before in the past. Decorations that bring to mind ancient Samurai prints are combined with Maori patterns in light colours that leap out from the suit’s black background.
This unique design with sensational visual impact created exclusively for Dainese by the Australian artist Luca Ionesco is the product of a technologically advanced laser system that combines white kangaroo skin and Lorica in a single “sandwich”. The working and stitching process permits the creation of the tattoo effect on the Lorica on the outside that is literally “stripped away” to make the underlying designs emerge.
Craftsmanship and technological innovation merge in a combination adopted by D-Tech, the Dainese Research & Development Department, to explore unknown roads and create an absolutely original product..
