On the Frontlines of Tim Sharky’s Zen War

Stories2 min Read

Once a strong man loan-shark, this tattoo-covered internet celebrity spends his nights feeding stray dogs… and banging hookers.

Pattaya, Thailand is a place of magic, if your definition of magic includes having sex with a prostitute. The resort city, located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, is a hot destination for sex tourists, with one British tabloid recently calling Pattaya “the sex capital of the world.”  Though prostitution is illegal in the county, it flourishes freely in Pattaya. If you look past the bright lights and hot girls of dubious gender identity on a hot Pattaya night, you might notice a hulking figuring in the alleyways — a musclebound man of enormous size, in nothing but a pair of shorts, his whole body covered in tattoos, carrying gigantic arms bags of dog food.

Perhaps someday in the future when life has you down, you can think of a man halfway across the world — a man fighting a zen war against dog malnourishment. Think of Tim Sharky when you are at your lowest. There’s a strange reassurance in knowing that you get to share a world with someone like The Shark.
