Wat Bang Phra – Thailand’s Tattoo Temple Revisited

Back in March, I guided a group of visitors to Thailand to the annual Wai Khru (Respect your teacher) at Wat Bang Phra temple, an hour west of Bangkok, the largest event celebrating all things sak yant, Thailand’s spirit tattoos, in the country.

Great group, wonderful day.

Thanks to Where Sidewalks End and Ian Ord.

It’s always great to reconnect with the incredibly fascinating world of Thailand’s spirit tattoos. For more info, check out my best-selling book, co-authored with photographer Aroon Thaewchatturat and published by Visionary World, Sacred Skin, now in its second edition.
