The making of Sacred Skin



Achan Neng Onnut, one of several tattoo masters featured in my recent book Sacred Skin, the first English language publication on Thailand’s spirit tattoos, Sak Yant, has posted a number of images of the shoot for two documentaries on the book.

Check out the images here.

Director Marc Eberle shot an 8 minute docu on Sacred Skin for arte TV in Germany and France while Meike Fries and Andreas Nebeling shot a 5 minute short film about photographer Aroon Thaewchatturat for German broadsheet Die Zeit.

Watch the Die Zeit docu here.

Both short films featured interviews with the authors, with Achan Neng Onnut and with celebrated conflict photographer James Nachtwey.
