Thai Tattoos in Action
The Secrets of the Yantra Explained
I know a lot of you have been asking me about Thai tattoos recently and where to get one and how much and so on an so forth. Well it's time I answered you and we got all Sak Yant on this joint. So when I had my first one it was at Nakhon Chai Si in Thailand. At the time, after hours upon hours of waiting, there was a massive crowd of around 40 or so people what sat or stood there in almost total silence. This was out of respect for the monk that was doing the tattoo. He is famous and has these sorts of audiences admiring his work almost daily. So these Yantra tattoos as they are known among Thai people are actually put on by hand using a bamboo needle and are often based on intricate geometric patterns that are mixed with Buddhist Thai scripture and chanting of Buddhist prayers. They have various special properties or blessings such as protecting against evil spirits, having good luck in life and even being more attractive to the opposite sex.
This ancient art form of traditional thai tattoos has actually been around for a long time, around two thousand years to be frank. It originates from when warriors wanted some extra powers from the monks before heading into battle. Hence the increased strength and good fortune spells. It also says that you will be protected from evil use of black magic too, a massive bonus I'm sure you'll agree.
