Sak Yant or Yantra Tattooing are believed to give the wearer magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil.
You can get these here in thailand by a monk, they look beautiful but I’d never recommend it. Essentially, you’re making a pact with a spirit to protect you in exchange for sacrificing an activity or habit you may have previously enjoyed (the monk decides what this is, not you). These tattoos are contracts.
Breaking your side of the bargain may encourage the spirit to ‘punish’ you, and these contracts are not easily voided.
Reblogging for the informative caption. A lot of young people want things like this to be cool hipster fucks and they entirely disrespect the meaning behind these ceremonies
even though i personally dont believe in spirits or that stuff, i still believe that you shouldnt appropriate something this serious and important from their culture just to look “cool”
I bolded a very important bit ^ -Donya
Is this where DarkerThanBlack got it’s “contracts” idea cuz that’s pretty cool
how come when someone decides to eat only fruits and vegetables people commend them for their “willpower” and “diligence” but when i decide to eat a diet composed entirely of mozzarella sticks and vodka suddenly i’m “out of control” and “putting myself in danger”
