    This is going to be harder in America. Dragons are not really part of the culture here. Maybe I can find someone with a cool tattoo.

    8 means fortune. I live in Taiwan and have a Taiwanese wife, she told me. Think 7 is the universal lucky number.

    @chappelow yeah, because the number 8 in Chinese dialect sounds like the word 'prosper'! :)
