    So I've got my first Thai Sak Yant tattoo "Eight Directions" on my left arm and I've decided to write a post about yantra tattooing. Sak Yant is more than just a tattoo. It has over 2000 yo traditions and it is deeply rooted in the Buddhist religion. All Sak Yant patterns are also aesthetically pleasing.

    That's one hell of a tattoo.

    How the heck do you find someone good enough with detail to get that accurate, unless you go to someone who can read that script?

    I never got around to getting a tattoo. I've liked the idea since my 20's, but never came across something important or meaningful enough to want permanent.

    Yes, I am training in Thailand right now. It's easier to get one on your back but it's possible to get smaller Eight Directions tattoo on your arm with the same level of details

    Are you doing it with the stick and ink. Or getting a guy with a gun?
