Sak Yant tattoos

Posted by rod - 18.03.2010

Sak Yant also called yantra tattooing, is a form of sacred tattooing practiced in Southeast Asia countries by Wicha’s (magic) practitioners or Buddhist monks. The most famous temple for getting a Sak yant is Wat Bang Phra in Nakhon Chaysri out side Bangkok, Thailand. Records have shown that the tattoo dates back to Angkor times and the script used for Yant designs is ancient Khmer. Sak Yant derive from beliefs that are animistic in nature. Often, they feature animals, such as the tiger for which the monks of Wat Bang Phra are famous, and -consequently- it is believed the wearer will exhibit the characteristics of these animals. Thus a tiger tattoo will lend them strength and protection from injury ; a dragon signifies strength and wisdom, a lion dignity and strength. These tattoos can also consist of detailed geometrical patterns interweaved with prayers and spells that benefit the wearer. There is also a Sak Yant Festival at the Wat Bang Phra see video. images via, nyenoona, muaythai, sak-yant, josefpolleross
