Thai Magic Tattoos: The Art and Influence of Sak Yant

By Isabel Azevedo Drouyer, Photography by René Drouyer

Sak Yant best translates as sacred tattoos. The practice of tattooing Buddhist text and symbols has long existed in Thailand. Both monks and lay people can be seen with these tattoos and many are claimed to have magical powers relating to health and even to resisting knife and bullet wounds.

There has been a revival of this art reaching into the new middle class of the region. Even Singaporean Chinese Buddhists are becoming fans of Sak Yant. Whether it's more to do with fashion or it shows a real belief is questionable. This book attempts to answer this and other questions and is the result of a three year study by authors which covers the Sak Yant tattoo masters, those receiving the tattoos and the tattoos themselves.
