Nowadays nice hotels offer a variety of spa services, for relaxation and cultural purpose. The Siam Hotel Bangkok took it to the next level!
In Bangkok you can find many temples with monks that are trained in the arts of the Sak Yant tradition and get your ancient ink there...
But that's not the only place to get that tattoo. At The Siam Hotel in Bangkok you can find Ajahn Boo, a former monk trained in Sak Yant, who brings the spiritual truth to it that can only be achieved by the hands of a true Yant tattooer.
The Yantra tattoo (the other name for Sak Yant) originated in Southeast Asia but nowadays it's spread through Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. It's a sacred design that together with Pali phrases is said to bring protection, fortune, charisma and power, among other benefits for those getting it tattooed by original monks!
Amazing attitude by the hotel! Let’s hope more places follow their example and spread these beautiful and meaningful works of body art!
