MINI Asia and Trans Eurokars, the authorized MINI distributor in Singapore, commissioned renowned local tattoo artist, Kirby Lian, to design a special edition MINI to commemorate MINI 50th Anniversary.

The special edition dubbed “Unzip the Tiger” debuted at the MINI 50th Anniversary Celebrations at Clarke Quay and has also been on display at Singapore’s newest shopping mall ION Orchard.

Kirby seeks to tell a story of the history and future of the subject matter in every tattoo design. For this special edition, his inspiration comes from MINI’s rich heritage as well as its great power and handling for a small car.

Interwoven in this clever design is a Union Jack on the roof of the car. The year “1959-2009” is integrated as part of the tiger stripes at the side panels of the car, which is the 50 years of the MINI. The number “50” is also integrated as part of tiger stripes design on the bonnet of the car and on the zipper details in the design.

The “Unzip the Tiger” design comes in a removable sticker, which can be tailored for the entire MINI range. The limited edition MINI Cooper S will be on display at MINI Habitat after the unveiling.
