A little disclaimer to any potential family members reading this post; I did not get a tattoo, nor do I have any to date. Ease the worries. However, I did accompany a friend on one of our recent outings to Chiang Mai for her first ink. Along our path to the parlor, we got to do a little exploring within the city walls and I was able to witness a man getting tatted via bamboo needle. Also known as Yantra Tattooing, these works of art are traditionally performed on the seeker by Buddhist Monks throughout Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. My friend stuck to the traditional ink gun and had กล้าหาญ or fearless engraved on her wrist. Heres a little insight into the evening.
