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”

What matters is this: Being fearless of failure arms you to break the rules. In doing so, you may change the culture and just possibly, for a moment, change life itself. -Malcolm McLaren
