Ajarn Noo: Sak Yan
So last night I visited an area just outside downtown Bangkok. A friend of ours father was getting a new ‘sak yan’, which is a Thai traditional tattoo with religious-mystical meaning. I have to say I never felt so out of place, but all the less it was cool to roughly check this guys setup out. I arrived too late to see our friends father get his work done, but I met one fella who had the entire upper body done. Ajarn Noo is the artist who tattooed Angelina Jolie twice and many other famous people. In the video, its pretty wild to see the people become possessed in a sense by the tattoo he has given them. These guys are acting out the tiger they have gotten and its powers.
